Scratch match

One of my realisations last year was the I loved playing team sport, something I started at the age of 7 and continued non-stop until I was 28. And then had a 10 year break!

I think part of not being able to get back to it for 10 years was due to my belief that if I wasn't playing seriously (ie in a proper competition), then what was the point? And I have discovered the point. The point is fun. Playing scratch matches in the park at lunch time with a bunch of guys I don't know couldn't be more fun.

Getting fit. Meeting new people. Learning new skills. Being outside. Having fun. I think it is a big part of my improved wellbeing over the past 12 months.
