Whether or not you have enjoyed sports in the past, being in college is always a great time to try new things. You will probably have more free time as a student than at any other time in your life and since campus activity is ripe with a whole variety of different sporting options, take advantage and find something you really enjoy. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even discover that you have a real talent for basketball or badminton.
Some successful and famous sportsmen/women have actually begun their sporting careers in college. They started a sport for fun and then found that they were particularly talented at it. Since there is no pressure at college to actually succeed at a sport (unless of course it is part of your studies), you are in a great position at this time in your life.
Take classes in swimming to learn a new stroke; pick up a racket and see how you are at tennis; or if you know you have a particular talent for the canoe boat, find out if there is a team on campus that you can join. Whatever you do, don’t let your time at college go by without at least experimenting with some of the great sports on offer.
