Welcome to my blog, all balls allowed, which is an outlet for my wittering about all things sports based.
As the daughter of a P.E. Teacher and the only girl in my year group I was brought up loving sport. My early years were filled with mini-rugby matches with the boys, tennis rallys against the shed wall and training in the neighbouring field in preparation for becoming an Olympic shot-putter (my Dad thought that was my calling in life!). Whilst I no longer dream of shot-putting my way to success I am still passionate about sport and think it is one of life’s greatest sources of excitement and drama. Nothing beats an emotive montage of the Olympics or seeing two great players battle it out in a five-setter in the fading Wimbledon light and I could talk about most sports-based for many an hour. Hopefully this blog will give me the opportunity to write about my passion and share it with you.
I hope you enjoy it and please do get in touch with any comments or questions and follow me on twitter, @abatweets.
