  1. 1. An essay on My Favourite Game.“All works and no play make Jack a dull boy” goes the famous saying. I too enjoyplaying all sorts of games-both indoors as well as outdoors. Among the indoorgames, I enjoy playing carom and chess the most. I also enjoy playing badmintonand table tennis with my friends and cousins.But the game I like the most is cricket. I not only enjoy playing this game but alsowatching it. It is my favorite game. We play cricket in our school also. I am in ourschool team and I really enjoy playing for our school. I open innings for ourschool’s team.I like all the aspects of the game-batting, fielding and bowling. I especially liketaking catches and diving to stop the boundaries during fielding. I bowlsometimes. But it is batting that I enjoy the most. I am also the vice-captain of theschool team. In the last inter-school tournament, our school had grabbed thetrophy and I had contributed 58 runs in my team’s score.Our coach is very hardworking too. We practice every day from 6AM to 8AM inthe morning and 4PM to 5PM in the evening. We first warm up by taking a fewrounds of our ground, then we do a few stretching and fitness exercises. Thenwe practice as per our turns-fielding, batting or bowling.I also enjoy watching the game whenever there is a live telecast on television.India is of course my favourite team but I also like watching the Australian andSrilankan teams. I therefore enjoy watching any match of the Indian team and ifthe other team is also one of my favourites, it is like a cherry on the cake.Recently, I got a chance to watch a live cricket match at the Feroz Shah KotlaStadium between India and srilanka. It was a thrilling experience. I enjoyed thematch especially, the great performances of captain Dravid, Sehwag, Tendulkar,Dhoni, Kaif and Kumble. Sachin Tendulkar is my favorite batsman. But the newsensation Dhoni too has won the hearts of many people including mine. It was agreat joy to watch my favourite teams pitched up against each other. India hadwon in the end, therefore our joy was doubled and we felt our watching the Match
  2. 2. was even more rewarded. I wish, I could get such more chances to watch livematches.My favorite game 2I play many games. They include both outdoor and indoor games. I also like toplay cricket, table tennis and volleyball. But badminton is my favourite game. It isa fascinating game.It is played between two parties. Each party may have one or two players. Theystand opposite to one another.In between there is a net spread wide. It is played with rackets and a shuttle-cock.The shuttle-cock is made of crock and feathers.Badminton is a game of skill. A badminton player should have strong hands andlegs. He should be very agile. He should be able to run quickly, jump and hopinstantly.I am a good player of badminton. I enjoy it very much. I am Captain of our schoolJunior Badminton Team.I go to the stadium for practice daily. I hope to play for my country someday. Onholidays I enjoy it at home with my brother and sister. I shall continue to play itall my life.A game is an activity involving one or more players. Games are played primarily forentertainment or enjoyment, but may also serve as exercise. Everyone in this world hastheir own favorite games, so do I. My favorite game is football. I often play this with myfriends in the evening. I like this game because it is exciting and challenging.Football is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players each. It is a ballgame played on a rectangular grass field with a goal at each end. The objective of thegame is to score by maneuvering the ball into the opposing teams goal. The winner isthe team which has scored the most goals at the end of the match.Football is played at a professional level all over the world. Millions of people regularly
  3. 3. go to football stadiums to follow their favorite team, whilst millions more avidly watch thegame on television. A very large number of people also play football at an amateurlevel. In many parts of the world, football evokes great passions and plays an importantrole in the life of individual fans, local communities, and even nations; it is thereforeoften claimed to be the most popular sport in the world.There are many worldwide international football competitions. One of theseis theWorld Cup organized by Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Over 190national teams compete in qualifying tournaments within the scope of continentalconfederations for a place in the finals. The finals tournament, which is held every fouryears, now involves 32 national teams competing. The next World Cup takes place inGermany 2006.The football star I admire most is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, nicknamedPelé. Pele is a former Brazilian football player thought by many to be the finest player ofall time. Often considered the perfect attacking player, he was completely two-footed, aprolific finisher, exceptional at dribbling and passing, and was a remarkably good tacklerfor a forward. He was also famed for his speed and strength on the ball. Since his fullretirement he has served as an ambassador for the sport.There are many reasons football is my favorite game. I wish to become a professionalfootball player. I learnt teambuilding, discipline as well as teamwork through playingfootball.Basketball is my favorite sportThe sport of basketball is known as a fun past time for any person young orold. Basketball is a great way of exercise and a great way to have fun withfriends and possibly make some new ones. I love to watch and play thegame, basketball is a very entertaining sport and can be played by anyone.Basketball has many negative and positive things about it based on myopinion. Basketball is known as a good pastime in many people’s eyes butcan also be seen as a passion for many others.Basketball in my opinion the best thing I can do with my friends to have funwhile burning a few calories. I see basketball as a fun and easy way to havefun rather than sitting on the couch all day playing video games or watchingtelevision. One reason I love basketball is because you need only yourself toplay the game or, you can play with teammates. I prefer to have others to
  4. 4. play with rather than just playing alone. To me there is not only one wordthat I can describe basketball. You meet tons of people and you are able toplay with your friends for hours without getting one thought of boredom.One thing I love about basketball is that people have many different stylesof play. There are styles such as a passer, playmaker, shooter, defensiveplayer, and dunker or highflyer. When you play basketball you feel muchmore confident and makes you not care much about how others think aboutyou. When I possess the ball in basketball I have the mentality of being thebest and no one could stop me. Many people have creative ideas and findnew ways to trick the opposing players. Playing Basketball is veryentertaining since there are endless ideas you can think of just with a hoopand a basketball. There are many reasons why I love to play the game ofBasketball but I also love to watch the game also.Basketball to me is overall the best sport out of all of the other sports suchas baseball, soccer, and football. I also believe out of all these sportsbasketball is the best sport to watch on television. Basketball is very fun towatch on television because when you watch it you can take the moves yousee the professional’s perform and add them to your style of play. I takemany of my moves from professional basketball players and make them myown because they expand my arsenal of tricks. There are a variety of tricksthe players perform during games it makes the games much more enjoyableto be watching. My favorite player to watch is Kobe Bryant. He makesbasketball seem as a mere game for little kids. He is an all around athlete isstill going strong at 30 years old. He is a big role model to many kids whoenjoy playing this sport. Kobe can do anything he is a very versatile playerand could get anywhere around the court in a blink of an eye. Bryant is thedefinition of all-around in my book. He knows how to play both sides of thegame offense and defense. I look at Kobe Bryant as the ultimate weapon. Iwant to play like him as I continue to get better and better every time I playbasketball. Kobe makes the game much more enjoyable to watch because ofhis acrobatic shots and stunning defense. Basketball is my favorite sport ofall-time. There are just endless possibilities when it comes to the thought ofbasketball.Basketball is a great way to get your mind off things and is also a great wayto express yourself. It is a sport that can work your whole body. It’s a great
  5. 5. pastime for any one and is a great way to bond with family members andfriends. I see in my eyes that basketball is very addicting and makes youwant to play more and more of it. Basketball is known as a good pastime inmany people’s eyes but can also be seen as a passion for many others.
