I'm interested to see who picked up tennis first.

I either played basketball or baseball first, I just chose basketball because it's March Madness!  :))

That's a vote for "soccer," sid/#1federerfan. Football here refers to American Football, and I seriously doubt we'll find someone who played Pop-Warner.

I usually refer to soccer as football and american football as hand-melon around people who might get confused. I am pretty used to it myself. I "played" rugby back when i was younger just between friends and such.

I was born in Jamaica... and in Jamaica EVERYONE does track (probably the secret to olympic success in the sport)... and so first sport was Track & Field (i added it lol) which I am soooo grateful for b/c I'm so much faster than most people on the court despite my height.... then I did Swimming alongside of that... then I did soccer... and finally found peace w/ tennis :D so I'm a pretty well-rounded athlete.

Track for me.  I was on the track team in school but sports was 2nd as far as participating... I was in music (marching band, concert band, etc. etc... played piano for my church at one time, etc., etc.)...  Now I "WATCHED" sport from as far as I can remember...

Now the only sport I actually participate in is bowling.

My team and I won my school's soccer intramural championship in the fifth grade. I was the goalie, and the other teams were so bad that I would sit down during the matches.
