Ex.1. What do you call a person who goes in for:
wrestling, cycling, weight-lifting, swimming, diving, running, mountaineering, boxing, skiing, racing, hunting, playing football, playing chess, playing draughts, athletics, skating, playing volley-ball, playing basket-ball, playing hockey?
Ex.2. Fill in prepositions if necessary:
Sport is very popular... Britain.... other words a lot... British people like the idea... sport; a lot even watch sport, especially... the TV. However, the number who actively take part... sport is probably quite small. '4;'the whole British people prefer to be fat rather than fit.
The most popular spectator sport is football. Football is played... a Sunday afternoon... most British towns and the fans, or supporters... a particular team will travel... one end... the country... the other to see their team play.
Many other sports are also played... Britain, including golf... which you try to knock a ball... a hole; croquet... which you try to knock a ball... some hoops; basketball... which you try to get a ball... a net; tennis... which you try to hit a ball so that your opponent cannot hit it and cricket which is played... a ball, but is otherwise incomprehensible. As you can see, if the ball had not been invented, there would have been no sport.
Actually that's not quite true. Athletics is not played... a ball, nor is horse-racing. Perhaps that explains why they are not so popular as football.
