    Typical stuff in school (mandatory):

    basketball
    baseball
    volleyball
    soccer
    netball
    dodgeball
    ping pong
    Jogging
    Gymnastics
    Rock climbing
    Fitness
    Tennis
    Racquetball
    Hockey
    Iceskating
    ...

    Chosen by myself (or forced by my mother):
    Swimming 3 years?(first to learn how to swim, later on training for competitive swimming)
    Ballet 2 years (always loved dancing, but was told I didnt have the right build for ballet, so I quit)
    Gymnastics 5 years (Im quite flexible and enjoyed that aspect of it, quit because of lack of time for school)
    Jiu-Jitsu 4 years(my crazy mother bullied the principal of my school in having classes at school, then forced me to take them as I was a blonde naive girl in her eyes )
    Aerobics (=> mom, didnt last long.)
    Skiing (=> mom, in prep for the school trip to Austria)
    Riding horseback on and off for years ( love the animals, never had the cash to *really* learn how to ride properly though...still regret that )
    Dance - both ballroom and hiphop- 4+ years (absolutely loved it, was my fav activity in the week while going to school, quit coz I finished the program and was going to Russia - and my ex was there)
    Belly Dance on and off ( self-taught for the most part, though I took one course with some friends; use online classes now)
    Yoga on and off ( use it now as warm up for belly dance)

    Well let's see:

    Basketball
    Softball
    Soccer
    Volleyball
    Gymnastics
    Track and Field
    Swimming
    Golf
    Tennis
    Racquetball
    Bowling
    Skiing (Cross country and downhill)
    Hockey
    Ice Skating
    Badminton

    I'm not sure they exactly count as sports but also:
    Dodgeball
    Kickball
    Billiards
    Aerobics
    Walking

    Except for the last two, I've sucked at every single one of them. I've yet to find a sport I can excel at. I've basically given up trying.

    I've played a lot. As someone else said, I'm not sure that some of them are sports (perhaps some are merely "games" or hobbies):

    Irregularly (like in P.E. at school)
    Field Hockey
    Cross-Country Running
    Aerobics
    Gymnastics
    Rugby (union)
    American Touch Football
    Aussie Rules (Touch, not tackle)
    Basketball
    Road Cycling
    Kayaking
    Canoeing
    Badminton
    Volleyball
    Softball
    Rounders
    Informal styles of Cricket (French Cricket, Non-Stop Cricket, Back-Yard/Beach Cricket )
    T-ball
    Ice-skating
    White-water rafting
    Caving (as well as Black-water rafting)
    Petanque
    Croquet
    Lawn Bowls
    Indoor Bowls
    Ten-pin Bowling
    Rock Climbing
    Abseiling
    Canyoning
    BMX
    Sailing
    Indoor Soccer
    5-a-side Soccer

    Organised sports (or ones I have participated semi-regularly in)
    Touch Rugby
    Athletics
    Soccer
    Cricket
    Netball
    Swimming
    Fishing
    Golf
    Table Tennis
    Tennis

    Why? I just love sport. I wanted to try just about every one, and there were few I didn't like (Gymnastics I really disliked - it's really scary!). I suppose I also have a knack for sport and could pick up a new one pretty easily.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Ballet, enforced by my mother when I was very young, though I wish she would've kept me in it.
    Swimming, also enforced by my mother
    Gymnastics, again, when I was young.
    Hip-hop dancing because I wanted to be black (the first time), the second time because I love it.
    Karate because I wanted to be tough.
    Ice skating because I thought ice skaters were graceful and beautiful.
    Cross country, mandated by my father
    Skiing, because it's easy and I love the vibe of the slopes.

    I've always hated sports though because I'm not athletic, but I am super competitive.

    What sports have you done @Lark ?

    Haha...you guys are counting sports that you did during P.E. class? Sounds a bit silly considering these must not have been done very often.

    Ballet - approx 14 years
    Lyrical - approx 9 years
    Jazz - at first on and off, then approx 4 years
    My mom signed my brother and I up for ice skating lessons once, but we were terrible and only went for maybe three lessons.
    I wanted to do karate when I was little, but my parents wouldn't let me.
    I wanted to do lacrosse in high school, but it conflicted with my dance.
    I've been skiing once and would love to try again.
    I want to try kayaking.

    I don't do anything right now. :/

    I tried Basketball a long time ago and mastered the craft of soccer. I like those sports because they are dynamic.

    Soccer - like 17 year now. Rec, highschool adult league
    Lacrosse- one season, women's lacrosse blows
    Rowing-a season, liked it but moved from the river
    Swimming-as a kid and a little in middle school
    Yoga- 5 year on and off, really want to do more
    Rollerblading- 5 years, my to to sport now probably 1-3 times a week
    Running
    Tae Kwan Do and ballet as kid. Loved the tae Keon do but we stopped for some reason maybe because our dojo got shot up is a drive by

    I like fast paced team sports and more "zen" solo excercise.
