    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?
    Nike Covert 2.0 Driver, Cobra Baffler 5w, Nike Covert Hybrid, Cleveland CG16 Irons , Cleveland Wedges, Ping Cadence Anser W Putter

    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.
