    Sports that leave you cold

    A bit of a controversial one this so if you are going to take the hump that just don't read it and don't post.

    I was watching 5 minutes of Wimbledon last night, the Konta match, and I realised that no matter how hard I try womens tennis just leaves me cold. It just does not interest or excite me at all. Mens tennis is more interesting but I still can not watch it for long. I like most sports but not this. Horse racing equally does not float my boat.

    What popular sports leave you cold?

    From a spectator perspective on TV football nowadays, rugby of both flavours and most golf tournaments. Actually thinking about it other than the Olympics and the Ryder Cup I watch very little sport.

    From a TV spectator perspective:

    Equestrian (any horse stuff)
    Gymnastics (yes both genders) (can I even suggest there's only two genders )
    Hockey (ice & field)
    Squash
    Cricket (esp test)
    Wrestling (Real & fake)
    Sailing (but not rowing)

    I'm sure there's more...

    Re: Sports that leave you cold

    I can watch and enjoy most Sports and I've played Most Sports but the two main ones that I haven't really played and just can't get into are Rugby (both)and Cricket.

    I like to watch Sports where I can appreciate individual skill, both Cricket And Rugby Bore the Pants off me. Probably a lack of understanding of what's going on on my part tbh.
