Reading: Popular British Sports and Games If the British people are asked to name their favourite sport, they will name football, cricket and tennis, though golf and horse-riding, as well as boating and rugby, are very popular either. Britain invented and developed many of the sports and games which are now played in different countries. The most popular sport, football, is spread all over the world. There are several national football teams in Britain, which compete with each other every year. The two best teams play in the Cup Final at Wembley Stadium in London. It is the most important football match of the year. National British teams take part in European competitions and other international matches.
Tennis, or lawn tennis, is another popular game in Britain. It was first played in England in 1872. The first Wimbledon tennis championship was in 1877. At first, it was all-English. Now it is international, and the last English champion was Fred Perry in 1939. Nowadays every summer in June, the British hold this famous International Tennis Championship at Wimbledon, near London. The youngest player at Wimbledon was Kathy Rinaldi in 1981, she was only 14. Boxing as a British sport is one of the oldest. It existed even in Saxon times. Swimming, boating and sailing are enjoyed by millions of people. But skiing and skating are not so popular because there is not much snow in Britain in winter.
