and explain why you enjoy playing it.

Model Answer 1:
My family loves to play and watch only one sport, and that is football or soccer. So, it is quite natural for me also to enjoy playing this great sport more than any others, even though I have played other sports once in a while. But, still, I would like to go ahead and talk about football here.

I don’t think that there is any need to reintroduce “football” here since it is by far the most popular sport in the world, with a staggering number of more than 250 million people watching or playing it, but just for the purpose of some academic reference, football is a team sport where two teams compete against each other to score “goal” by running really hard in a football field. Each team plays with 11 players, and the higher number of goals a team scores is declared as the winner.

Of course, I have never really been a very good soccer player, but I still like to play it with my friends and other community members at a local stadium whenever I get an opportunity. Sometimes, I like to play it also in an empty space within our locality.

By the way, when played on a professional level, a team is to have 11 members each, including a “goalkeeper” to guard the goal post, which is an empty space within two vertically–stood side poles. Besides, the size (approved by “FIFA”, the world’s highest governing body of football) of the stadium will also have to be at least 110 yards long and 70 yards wide for a professional football match to take place.

Well, I enjoy playing this sport, mainly because no other game, at least to me, offers the same level of excitement and adrenaline rush. I just seem to enjoy the speed at which the game is played. Besides, it allows me to remain fit and healthy. Finally, I enjoy playing it also because it helps me socialize and have fun with my friends.


Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
I really enjoy playing badminton, a racket sport that I find both physically engaging and mentally refreshing. I often play it with my friends at a local sports complex, and every session leaves me feeling rejuvenated. I would like to thank you for this nice topic.

What kind of game or sport it is:
Badminton is a racket sport played on a rectangular court divided by a net. Players use rackets to hit a shuttlecock back and forth over the net, aiming to land it on the opponent's side of the court. It's a fast-paced game that requires agility, quick reflexes, and strategic thinking.

Who you play it with:
I play badminton with a group of my friends who share a similar passion for the sport. We have a friendly rivalry and always look forward to challenging each other's skills on the court.

Where you play it:
We usually play at a nearby sports complex that has well-maintained badminton courts. The environment is perfect for an intense game, with the courts well-lit and equipped for our matches.

And explain why you enjoy playing it:
There are several reasons why I enjoy playing badminton so much. First and foremost, it provides a fantastic workout. The constant movement, quick lunges, and rapid changes in direction keep my body active and help me stay fit. It's also a great stress reliever – whenever I step onto the court, I can focus solely on the game, leaving behind the worries of the day. The social aspect is another factor that contributes to my enjoyment. Playing with friends brings a sense of camaraderie, and we often share tips and techniques to improve our gameplay.
