minx_24.nik answers:

Top 5 sports i assume!! ;o) Football is by far the favourite followed by(in no particular order)rugby, Formula One, tennis and possibly golf. There are plenty of others i could mention eg: swimming, running, rowing.....but those 5 are the ones that i think are the most popular :o) Many players watch their team mates/opponents play to find out their strengths and weaknesses and for pleasure as well as the social aspect of it. Some have business interests too.

Since you ask about our participation, I assume you’re asking about participation in sports and not spectator activity. According to the National Statistic Office, the five most popular sports, games or physical activities among adults are:
- walking (46 per cent);
- swimming (35 per cent);
- keep fit/yoga – including aerobics and dance exercise (22 per cent);
- cycling (19 per cent); and
- cue sports - billiards, snooker and pool (17 per cent).
