Sports generally involve an activity requiring physical exertion and skill, in which individuals or teams compete against each other. Examples include tennis, soccer and netball. Sports can not only provide all the physical benefits of exercise, such as improved strength, flexibility and balance, but being part of a team and competing can also be great for building friendships and self-confidence. Not to mention that playing sport can be great fun!
