    I haven't really played any sports recently but growing up:

    Competitively: Baseball, it's what I was best at. Many memories from it.

    Recreational: Football, Awesome just playing in the Sun or Rain, coming home wreckt after. Basketball was fun too but for some reason like 1/4 of the time 2 of us would always start talking shit or even fighting somewhat.

      None now. Ironicly before i would partake in combat sports but never liked fighting. My trainers wanted me to fight but i never cared for that. Its a whole different type of discipline and a whole different type of mental aspect to it. Hard sparring is as far as i cared to go.

          baseball was a lot of fun when i was a kid. but it was also the only sport available back then. in high school i played football and track, and i loved them both pretty much equally, although in totally different ways. i also tried basketball for a couple years in jr high, but i didn't find it all that fun so i stopped.

          nowadays, if i had to choose, i would probably say volleyball. beach volleyball at least; indoor volleyball is fun too but i don't know that i could consider it a favorite. swimming is also a lot of fun. i wish swim team was a thing when i was a kid, then i would have had a winter sport. i just play around in the water now, except our once a year adult swim meet. i also love hiking, although i never would have thought of it as a sport if it weren't on the OP list. i could see myself getting into tennis, except there's nowhere to play and nobody to play with, but it seemed really fun the few times i did get to play. racquetball is similar, but like volleyball, it loses something when you move it inside. plus i work at a place with racquetball courts, and i've had to respond to two different situations where somebody ran into the wall and broke their neck (both people did fully recover). bowling is great with a few beers. so is pool, if you consider that a sport. soccer is a really fun concept, but i don't have the stamina to actually play a game. i would love to play football again, but it would have to be the real thing and that's not really an option for adults. flag football is kind of boring; i mostly just liked tackling people when i actually played. i suppose i would also participate in an adult track meet if that ever happened, although after running on a hard surface i'm pretty sure i would spend the next week with knees the size of watermelons.

          i don't know why it is, but for some reason basketball seems to encourage people to act like assholes. some of the nicest guys i know like to play basketball, and after a little while on the court they're just trying to start fights with everyone there. it's weird.

            Yah, maybe it's because of the constant proximity and enforcing rules is kind of arbitrary when you're playing a pickup game? It's like one guy swipes at another guy trying to shoot, if he misses he's complaining he got fouled, other guy saying he got all ball. That stuff seems to carry on throughout. Then you got guys pushing each other jockeying for position down by the basket and stuff.

            I definitely recall scrapping some plans afterwards so respective parties could cool off.

              yeah that makes sense. even in an organized game, basketball is hell to referee. i've reffed football, basketball, baseball/softball, and soccer (only baseball/softball as an actual trained/paid umpire, the rest at the youth league level) and i would say that all of them are pretty easy and straightforward except for basketball. in that one you're pretty much just watching a clump of people and trying to tell them what happened on the other side of 2 or 3 people that you couldn't actually see through, and even if you could it usually happened too fast to process anyway.

                Volleyball is the one I enjoy playing the most and the best at.

                I've attempted soccer (ha! Couldn't kick to save my life!), basketball, football (Haha, yeah, no! Same kicking problem.), softball, and tennis (uh, yet another haha, but I was slamming at it like a baseball lol). Oh, and of course, I've bowled, but not in a professional manner...oh, same with billiards...oh, and swimming.

                Undies you reminded me, I actually worked front desk for the indoor racquetball. Got to watch too. Was fun and no broken noses in my experiences.

                    Out of the list some of these i don't really consider a sport. Like running and hiking. Its more like an activity. Track and field is different. That's more like a sport. Some i don't even know what it is like lacrosse, badmitton, boogie boarding, kiting.

                    Never cared to partake in team sports but out of the team sports i feel soccer would've been my best bet. I think i could've been good with that.

                      hiking is super competitive. i'll hike all over your ass.

                      i do wonder if kiting is like flying a kite, or kite surfing, or something else. i've wanted to try kite surfing for as long as i've been aware of it, but it's not something that i'm willing to buy all the equipment for, and for some reason the guys who do it seem to be very unfriendly so i can't mooch a free ride off one of them.

                        I guess hiking can be competitive. Like if your hiking in the woods and someone walks right pass you and then you start walking faster to pass him/her. Then you're both walking as fast as you can to out walk the other.

                        I'm actually like that with running. I have this competitive ego where if someone runs pass me i'll run faster to pass them. Sometimes i'll even toy with them.

                            In high school I took bowling, lol. Yeah, it was actually offered as an alternative to one of the P.E. semesters. It was just me and three other friends that did it. We'd take the short school bus to the local bowling alley. It was fairly early in the morning so we were always the only ones there. I liked it so much I eventually saved up and bought my own ball and shoes.

                            I wasn't heavy enough for football, nor was I tall enough for basketball. I wish now that I had gone out for baseball but it didn't occur to me. At our school sports=football so that's all I ever heard about. But apparently we had a baseball team.

                              Well I play pool competitively, so probably that however I also did rowing, netball, volleyball, archery and some fencing which I was younger. I liked playing volleyball. Always enjoyed spiking a mofo.
