INTRODUCTION

 

Whe have I chosen such theme? Sport is supposed to be interesting

 

only for men, not for women. But I think it is a mistaken opinion. Sport

is one of the most amusing things in the world, because of fillings,

experiences, excitements connected with it. Particularly it is so when

we speak about the UK.

 

Think of your favorite sport. Whatever it is, there is good chance that

it was first played in Britain, and an even better chance that its

modern rules were first codified in this country.

 

Sport probably plays a more important part in people’s life in Britain

than it does in most other countries. For a very large number it is

their main form of entertainment. Millions take part in some kind of

sport at least once a week. Many millions more are regular spectators

and follow one or more sports. There are hours of televised sport each

week. Every newspaper, national or local, quality or popular, devotes

several pages entirely to sport.

 

The British are only rarely the best in the world at particular sports

in modern times. However, they are one of the best in the world in a

much larger number of different sports than any other country (British

individualism at work again). My course paper looks at the most

publicized sports with the largest followings. But it should be noted

that hundreds of other sports are played in Britain , each with its own

small but enthusiastic following. Some of these may not be seen as a

sport at all by many people. For most people with large gardens, for

example, croquet is just an agreeable social pastime for a sunny

afternoon. But to a few, it is a deadly serious competition. The same is

true of the game such as indoor bowling, darts or snooker. Even board

games, the kind you buy in a shop, have their national championships.

Think of any pastime, however trivial, which involves some element of

competition and, somewhere in Britain, there is probably a ‘national

association’ for it which organized contents.

 

The British are so fond of competition that they even introduced it into

gardening. Many people indulge in an informal rivalry with their

neighbors as to who can grow the better flowers or vegetables. But the

rivalry is sometimes formalized. Though the country, there are

competitions in which gardeners enter their cabbage, leeks, onions,

carrots or whatever in the hope that they will be judged ‘the best’.

There is a similar situation with animal. There hundreds of dog and cat

shows throughout the country at which owners hope that their pet will

win a prize. There are a lot of such specific kinds of sport in the
