Things you can do with a ball


Places and people

The playing area for football and rugby is called a pitch. Around the pitch there is an area for spectators/the crowd (= people who watch the game). The total area is the stadium. The playing area for tennis, volleyball and basketball is a court; for golf it is a course.


Football and rugby have a referee; tennis and baseball have an umpire. In football the referee uses a whistle to control the game.

Speed… excitement… danger... You can find all these in different extreme sports that have become popular for the last 10 years. Take bungee jumping. You jump off a bridge and you fall and fall, and then, just before you hit the ground or water, an elastic ropepulls you back. In sky surfing you jump out of aero plane and use a board to "surf" the air, doing gymnastics in mid-air! And extreme sports on land can be just as dangerous.

Winter sports have always an element of danger. For example, snowboarding, which has all the excitement of surfing but on snow, is more dangerous even than skiing. Probably the most dangerous of all the new winter sports is snow rafting. You sit in a rubber boat and sail down a mountain at great speed – and you can’t control the boat!

Of course, water sports have always been fun. Ice diving is for those people who are absolutely crazy. You put on diving equipmentand dive under a frozen lake. And, if that’s not enough, you try to walk upside down on the ice! One feels cold just thinking about it.

A lot of people are not fit nowadays. It’s a big problem today. If you want to feel fit you'd better go in for one kind of sport or another. I think that everyone must do all he can to be healthy. Good health is above wealth. All kinds of physical exercises are very useful to make our bodies strong and to keep ourselves fit and healthy. Doing sports a man becomes strong, healthy and gay. He begins to take care of his health.
