Why take part in sport?

There are plenty of reasons why getting off the couch and into your games kit is a good thing. Our bodies are like cars; they need to move to function well!

Physically, sport helps you lose weight, enjoy a more toned body and show stamina on the sports field. Regular exercise also boosts self-confidence and mental concentration. Being fit is a big plus; enhancing co-ordination, agility and cardiovascular fitness. You'll probably even pick up some new mates whilst you're at it.
