Playing a team sport has many benefits. Exercise. Comradeship. Working with others on a common goal. A sense of belonging. A sense of achievement. You do not have to win to gain these things, but as we found out tonight, playing against another team of similar skill adds to the enjoyment of the game. It brings something we had been lacking for the last two seasons in our Futsal competition. It brings hope.
Do you play team sports? How do you perform? What keeps you going back for more?
