Con

every one should be in some sort of sporting activities. Wether it is soccer or swimming, rugby league or volley ball, sports is fun and healthy.
leethal

Pro

I believe that everyone should, in one way or another, be involved with at least one sport.

I will begin by affirming my opponents remarks, which seem only to help my case. I agree with her completely that "Wether [sic] it is soccer or swimming, rugby league or volley ball, sports is fun and healthy." I will now provide basis for how involvement in sport can be fun and healthy.

Healthy for the body: Sports generally involve exercise, which is good for the body.

Healthy for the mind: Research has proven time and time again the link between exercise and good mental health. Sport = exercise = a healthier mind.

Healthy for your social life: Most sports involve being part of a team, or otherwise playing with or against other people. Joining a sporting club will give you instant access to like-minded people and are a great opportunity to make friends. Also, watching sport on TV or live in person is a great social event, where you are, again, surrounded by like-minded people to socialise with. You could also volunteer at your local sports club as a great social way to get involved in sports.

Fun: This is the main reason, in my opinion, why everyone should get involved with sports. A majority of people who play sports do so for this very reason. Watching your sport of preference on TV can also be a fun way to get involved with sports. I don't believe I've ever met someone who didn't enjoy playing or watching at least one sport.

I had no points to argue from my opponent's first round, so I have just listed a number of reasons why I believe everyone should get involved with sports in one way or another.
