Gave up golf years ago, just taking it back up now. It appears the years of not playing have somehow made me better! Must be an age thing.

Tennis. Couldn't serve properly and get it in the right area and could barely return a serve unless it was set up for me to get back into play. I'm absolutely awful at Table Tennis too come to think of it.

Snooker is another one. I'm alright at pool sometimes but Snooker is way too difficult. I'd be surprised if my highest break is more than 15 or something.

Learn to play snooker and pool becomes the easiest game in the world.

Golf is hard. I haven't played much for the last few years. Find it hard but enjoyable.

There's a crossover element that exists between many sports, although with tennis there's a massive emphasis on coaching. I've seen a few footballers down the years, who more or less end up crying if they participate in golf, tennis, snooker, etc. They basically can't accept losing or come to terms with how useless they are, and their emotional reaction is to cheat and become upset.

Squash. I was a pretty good tennis player but couldn't play squash at all. Always in the wrong place, always running into my opponent or him into me, couldn't anticipate the bounce off the wall and didn't like the squash court smell.

And I always ended up hitting the tennis ball out of the back of the court when I had being playing squash beforehand too.

Badminton too.

I like squash but can't do badminton. I think the saving grace for me with squash is fitness because technically I'm quite basic.

RE rowing; I was quite surprised at being good at rowing/kayaking. I don't know if it's from my past history of swimming and it uses the same muscles? No idea.

Golf. I played for a few years and happily gave up in 2003 and have never been happier. An absolute waste of a day, so so frustrating.The only pleasure I got was tonking the ball and we all know what happens when you try and hit it as hard as possible. [:D]

Stupid game, outdated and dying. I hope all Golf courses are sold off to farmers for grazing cattle.[^][:(!]

I am outrageously bad at ten-pin bowling, but then again I look askance at anybody who isn't utterly dreadful at it.

Cricket's the sport which infuriates me, though. Used to spend long summer evenings playing it on the school field or at the cricket club. Could never hit a boundary (although on better days I was good for a stubborn, ground out resistance against pace to see out a 'draw') and my bowling only ever improved from slow and erratic to slightly-less-slow and erratic, much to my chagrin.

I can't ice skate or skateboard at all, utterly hopeless at both although I'm not sure either are sports but in the teenage hey day of roller discos I was a pariah.

Shooting and darts I'm a bad at but apparently that's down to being right handed and left eyed.

I'm also thinking that may also have something to do with my golf tee to green was pretty solid (lowest handicap I had was 10.8) but couldn't putt for toffee in fact I once hit 16 greens in regulation and didn't score a birdie and only 8 pars, stopped playing because it infuriated me so much and it sport is meant to be fun.

I'm left handed for writing, snooker, darts but play golf and cricket right handed. Was at the driving range and a bloke there said you should be good as your stronger arm is on top. Suffice to say I'm not good.

Tennis,

After playing an awful lot of squash over the years (literally thousands of games) i thought i would be decent at tennis.

I had no problem hitting the ball or being at the shot. But the ball was literally going 20-30 feet long almost every time i hit it. only landed about a dozen shots on the court in over an hour.

tennis for me also. was decent at squash, badminton, fives, most 'court games' etc. but just could not play tennis, at least not the serving bit

also cant run fast for toffee - OK as a good medium pace bowler, but anything longer than my run up i was hopeless at. i used to be able to run a long way, just not quickly

was pretty crap at water polo as well

Awful coordination and I'm sure I have one leg longer than the other? [cr]

I can kick a ball, or could when I was in decent shape anyway.

I'd love to be able to give my dad a proper game of snooker or darts but he wipes the floor with me every time. [V]

I've played golf on and off for about 30 years and I think I'm getting worse, it's a very difficult game to take up as an adult and become good at it.

Not too good at badminton either, could never judge the pace of the shuttleXXXXXX properly, swung at it too early and all that.

Could never throw the javelin either when I was at school.

When I was a few years younger me and my mate devised a competition for our walk back home from a night out: booting the wing mirrors off cars; the one who did the fewer in 1 minute would have to get the first round on the next night out.

No matter how hard I practiced, I could never seem to get the technique right.
Usually I'd end up having to rip the thing off with my hands because I wasn't able to knock it clean off with one kick. My mate would do it like he was hurdling; I swear he could do a whole street of about 10 cars in less than 20 seconds.

Cricket. I play it regularly but my batting frustrates me.

I am blind in one eye and don't see any late movement. At the weekend I played on first ball trying to cut one outside the offstump but didn't see the late inswing. What is bizarre is that in the outfield I catch everything - got the safest pair of hands in the club, which isn't saying much, but I honestly can't remember the last one I put down.

A few weekends ago Steve Buckner was umpiring our game (he's retired to New York and officiating local league games). He was just laughing at me after the game saying I was a genius because we had an 8-1 offside field with me the line leg-side fielder at mid wicket but I kept taking the catches...
