You're a Sporty Superstar!

You wear scarves - but only to the footie, you wear gloves - but only to box and the only hats you don are protective ones for horse riding, rallying or mountain biking...


Your sporty car sits on the drive as your garage is a home gym or filled with bats, balls, racquets, clubs, table tennis tables and any other sporting paraphernalia you own. You don’t mind that your car may rust as you like to jog everywhere anyway - in your snazzy running shoes.

Weekends are fully booked - Saturday afternoons are wiped out by the football fixtures and on Sundays you are out-and-about running around parks or in your garage gym. If someone does ask if you want to go clubbing at the weekend, you assume it is for a round of golf.

You are in a sporting haven - Birmingham is renowned across the world as a venue for competitive sport and with more plentiful parks and green spaces you have heaps of choice to pursue your outdoorsy activities.
