It is typically played with a mixed-gender team of six three men and three women , with single-gender and age group variants.

Teams play on a 70m by 50m pitch with rolling substitutions. There are no set pieces e. Scores are made by grounding the ball over the scoreline as in Rugby Union or League; a team is allowed six touches in possession to attempt a score before the ball is turned over to the opposition.

The England Touch Association runs three national mixed series from April to September, as well as a men's and a women's series.

More than a thousand players across over 40 clubs [35] are registered to play in these competitions. There are also substantial local and regional competitions, many run with the involvement of O2 Touch.

Athletics does not have a very high profile in Britain on a week-in week-out basis, but it leaps to prominence during major championships.

The level of attention received by successful British athletes is illustrated by the fact that athletes have won far more BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards than practitioners of any other sport.

There are also semi-independent athletics associations in each of the home nations. Over the last few decades British athletes have usually won between one and three gold medals at the Olympics; the Games in London saw three British athletes win four golds single golds by Jessica Ennis and Greg Rutherford , and two by Mo Farah.

Traditionally Britain was strongest in men's athletics, especially middle distance running, but over the last 20 years success has been achieved in a wide range of events and British women have closed the attainment gap on the men.

However, there remain serious concerns about the depth of the sport in Britain, with the number of club athletes reportedly in decline.

Two high-profile annual athletics events are the London Marathon and the Great North Run , which is a half marathon.

The United Kingdom played a key role in the evolution of modern boxing , with the codification of the rules of the sport known as the Queensberry Rules , named after John Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry in Some of the best contemporary British boxers included; super-middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe , featherweight champion Naseem Hamed , and heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis.

Welshman Calzaghe's display against Jeff Lacy in prompted Lacy's trainer to state "I have never seen a better performance than that in the world.

British professional boxing offers some of the largest purses outside the United States to a few elite professional boxers who become nationally known.

British heavyweight contenders are especially popular, but most British world champions have fought in the middle weight bracket. The governing body of professional boxing is the British Boxing Board of Control.

It is generally felt that British professional boxing is in decline in the early years of the 21st century. The reasons for this include: Amateur boxing is governed by separate bodies in each home nation.

At Olympic, World and European events, home nation boxers with the exception of N. Ireland compete under the GB podium squad banner.

British amateurs have enjoyed success in international competition in recent years but unlike their counterparts boxing for the Irish Republic there's a tendency for them to turn professional early in their amateur career.

The amateur sport is steadily recovering from a decline that reached a peak in the late s, with dramatic increases in boxer numbers driven by recent GB podium squad success, most notably at the London Olympics.

Although Britain's top amateur boxers are household names and lauded by the general public, the financial and commercial leverage that professional sports now have on televised media means amateur boxing rarely receives its fair share of T.

Mixed martial arts MMA has come a huge way. The sport was on the verge of being sent into oblivion in the early s but has since clawed its way back and become one of the most popular sports in the USA.

It is hard to pinpoint the main reason why exactly this has happened. The stereotype of extreme violence that they have been unable to shake off?

However, things slowly started to change when Michael Bisping came onto the scene and won The Ultimate Fighter 3.

The 2 winners of The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will Be Crowned. Britain had limited success with cycle racing in the 20th century.

This has changed when the performance director of British Cycling Peter Keen formerly coach of Chris Boardman and later appointed in as performance director with UK Sport obtained lottery funding which helped cycling at both grass roots and at an elite level.

The first fruits of the programme were harvested in Other successes include Rebecca Romero and Victoria Pendleton. Success at road racing was also limited, with the United Kingdom being the only major nation not to have a Tour de France champion, until Bradley Wiggins ' victory in the Tour de France.

This newfound British success continued with Chris Froome winning four of the next five Tours , , , , followed by Geraint Thomas taking victory in Britain has had some success in women's cycle racing in producing 4 road racing world champions including Beryl Burton , Mandy Jones , Lizzie Armistead and Nicole Cooke who won the Olympic road race title and the world championship in the same year in Emma Pooley won the world road time trial championship in Cycle racing is organised by British Cycling , who govern most cycling events in the United Kingdom and organise the national team.

The success of British Cycling and Team Sky has increased dramatically the popularity of the sport in the UK which has brought in more sponsors into the sport.

A lot of cyclists take part in the many sportives organized all over the country including the hugely popular Ride London event which.

Modern competitive golf originated in Scotland. In the early 20th century British golfers were the best in the world, winning nearly all of the US Open championships before World War I.

American golfers later became dominant, but Britain has continued to produce leading golfers, with an especially strong period in the s and s.

There are usually more British golfers than others in the top of the Official World Golf Ranking relative to population, that is to say more than a fifth as many.

Several British golfers have reached the world's top 10 in the early s. England's Lee Westwood ended Tiger Woods ' five-year reign atop the rankings in autumn In May , fellow Englishman Luke Donald reached the top of the rankings, and by the end of that year became the first golfer in history to top the money lists of both the PGA and European Tours in the same season.

Golf is the sixth most popular sport, by participation, in the United Kingdom. The Open Championship , which is played each July on a number of British golf courses on a rotating basis, the majority of them in Scotland, is the only men's major golf tournament which is played outside of the United States.

In international team competition the United Kingdom provides a large part of the European Ryder Cup team, which has beaten the United States team in seven of the last eight events.

Tennis is yet another sport which originated in the United Kingdom, first originating in the city of Birmingham between and as a more open variant of the historical real tennis , or Royal tennis, often associated with the Tudor monarchy of Henry VIII of England.

However, it has not flourished there in recent decades: No British woman has won at Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in The governing body of the sport is the Lawn Tennis Association LTA , which invests the vast profits from the tournament in the game in the hope of producing British champions, but a string of revamps of the coaching system have failed to raise the standard of LTA-trained players.

The only British players of either sex to reach the world top 50 in recent years are Greg Rusedski , who learnt his tennis in Canada , Tim Henman and Murray, who did not pass through the LTA system either, and on the women's side Anne Keothavong and the late Elena Baltacha both slipped into the worlds top 50 during their careers.

Outside of Wimbledon fortnight tennis's profile in Britain is low, and since the retirement of Rusedski and Henman is now largely dependent on Murray, the current UK number 1.

Very recently , the rise of a number of other players, notably doubles specialist Jamie Murray , and younger top 50 players Laura Robson , Heather Watson , Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund has been supplemented by the spectacular rise of British women's number one Johanna Konta from a position outside the top to the top ten in the world in just under eighteen months leading to October As a result, Great Britain had a top ten ranked men's singles, men's doubles and women's singles players at the same time for the first time ever.

Great Britain have won the Davis Cup ten times, with their most recent title in being their first since The Great Britain women's team made the final of the Fed Cup four times, losing all four, but their last finals appearance was in when the competition was known as the Federation Cup, and the women's prospects for future victory are dim.

The British leg of the competition is the Rally Great Britain. Derek Bell is a five-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and one-time winner of the km Silverstone , the major endurance race of the country, formerly part of the World Sportscar Championship and currently part of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Britain hosts one round of the MotoGP World Championship at Silverstone in early September, and celebrated its first motorcycle grand prix world champion since the late Barry Sheene with Danny Kent 's title in Moto3 in In the race had become the third Superbike World Championship round in Britain, but since then rounds at Silverstone and Brands Hatch have been dropped.

In rally raiding , Sam Sunderland became the first British winner of the Dakar Rally when he won the motorcycle classification in One reason the popularity has increased domestically is due to the UK's strength at the international level with two gold and two bronze medals at the two most recent Olympic games and many wins on the international circuit.

Many races are held over the UK hosted by local clubs with about , race entrants in [44]. Swimming is the largest participation sport in England according to Sport England It is larger than athletics, cycling and football.

The swimming organisations of the home countries formed an umbrella organisation called British Swimming in the year British Swimming concentrates on elite swimmers with podium potential.

Britain sends large teams to all the major international swimming events, and enjoy some successes, but it is not currently a leading swimming nation.

The sport's profile is highest during the Commonwealth Games , when British swimmers have their best chance to win gold medals, and during the Olympics.

The sport has a thriving club structure with competition at all levels. The provision of 50 metre pools in the United Kingdom was very poor for a developed country, with just 22 as of early , only two of which conformed to the full Olympic standard.

There are however far more 25 metre short course pools and other sub Olympic-size competition pools. See List of Olympic size swimming pools in the United Kingdom.

The number of 50m pools has now increased and there are 9 full Olympic size pools including the London Aquatics Centre pool which is regarded as currently the best pool in the world.

Other sports with loyal followings include snooker , which is popular with television companies as it fills their schedules at a very low cost, and also attracts good audiences.

However, its popularity has waned somewhat since , when nearly a third of the British population watched the conclusion of the celebrated Dennis Taylor versus Steve Davis World Championship final even though it ended after midnight.

There are many amateur leagues set up across the country, featuring team matches between snooker clubs. Table Tennis is, according to Sport England a widely participated physical activity with c participants and a large number of regional clubs enrolled to English Table Tennis Association https: Darts is another British centred sport with an assured place in the attention of the British sporting public.

Phil Taylor of Stoke has won more World Championships than any other player. Sailing is also a well regarded sport in the United Kingdom. It is governed by the RYA , and there are many locations in the United Kingdom where sailing can take place, both inland and coastal.

Media coverage tends to be low, but if this were to be increased, some feel that support for the sport would increase. The United Kingdom has proved successful in the international sporting arena in rowing.

It is widely considered that the sport's most successful rower is Steve Redgrave who won five gold medals and one bronze medal at five consecutive Olympic Games , as well as numerous wins at the World Rowing Championships and Henley Royal Regatta.

There are many other sports in which Britons compete, sometimes with success, but which do not receive much attention outside a small number of aficionados except during major events such as the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games, or when a British athlete does something extraordinary such as breaking a world record.

Examples include judo , gliding , modern pentathlon , figure skating and sailing. Thoroughbred racing , which originated under Charles II of England as the "sport of kings", occupies a key place in British sport, probably ranking in the top four or five sports in terms of media coverage.

There are sixty racecourses in Great Britain with annual racecourse attendance exceeding six million and roughly 13, races being held across Britain and Ireland each year.

The town of Newmarket is considered the centre of English racing, largely because of the famous Newmarket Racecourse.

The two forms of horseracing in the United Kingdom are National Hunt , which involves jumping over fences or hurdles, and the more glamorous flat racing.

National Hunt is a winter sport and flat racing is a summer sport, but the seasons are very long and they overlap. Other leading flat races include the 1, Guineas and The Oaks , and these five races are collectively known as the Classics.

Apart from the meetings at which the aforementioned races are staged, major flat racing meetings include Royal Ascot , Glorious Goodwood , and the Ebor Festival at York Racecourse.

The United Kingdom also played a key role in the evolution of three-day eventing and showjumping. Badminton attracts crowds of up to a quarter of a million spectators on cross country day, which is the largest for any paid-entry sports event in Britain.

The British Olympic Association is responsible for the promotion of the Olympic Movement within the United Kingdom and for the selection, leadership and management of Great Britain and Northern Ireland at every Olympic accredited event.

By longstanding practice, athletes of Northern Ireland have the option of being part of either the Great Britain or Ireland teams.

After the Summer Olympics Great Britain was third in the all-time Summer Olympic medal count ranked by gold medals , although the majority of the medals are accounted for by some very large tallies in the first few Olympic Games.

British medal tallies for much of the post-war period were generally considered disappointing, but the Summer Olympics marked an upturn and this was sustained at the Summer Olympics when Great Britain finished tenth in the medal table and the where it finished fourth behind only China, the USA and Russia.

This was seen as a great success, and there was a victory parade through the streets of London. This trend continued in the Games in London.

The sports in which the British team has won most medals in recent Summer Olympics include rowing, sailing , cycling and athletics. In addition to the Summer Olympics, London hosted the Games in and Winter sports only play a minor role in British sporting life because the winters are not cold enough for them to be practised out of doors very much.

Great Britain is not a leading nation at the Winter Olympics , but has had a few successes in sports such as figure skating , curling and bob skeleton.

A number of athletes represented Great Britain in the freestyle skiing discipline when it debuted at the Winter Olympics. The United Kingdom has played a major role in the development of disability sport.

It has never finished outside the top five and has been second several times, including the last five games in , , , and The BBC is an enthusiastic promoter of disability sport.

London's successful bid for the Summer Olympics also meant that it hosted the Summer Paralympics. Although Great Britain have been a minor nation in the Winter Paralympics , they have enjoyed particular success in women's visually impaired alpine skiing in the s, with Kelly Gallagher becoming the first British Winter Paralympic gold medallist at the Games when she won the super-G [48] and Jade Etherington , Menna Fitzpatrick and Millie Knight all winning multiple Paralympic medals in the sport.

In the early 20th century the United Kingdom had some of the largest sports facilities in the world, but the level of comfort and amenities they offered would be considered totally unacceptable by modern standards.

After a long period of decline relative to other developed countries British facilities have made a relative improvement since the s, and this is ongoing.

British football grounds are almost always football-only facilities in which the spectators are close to the action.

Since the late s there has been a dramatic spurt of reconstruction and replacement of league grounds, which is ongoing, and the Premier League 's facilities are among the best of any sports league.

As of early there are approximately 35 all-seater club grounds in England with a capacity of 25, or more, three in Scotland and one in Wales.

The largest is Manchester United's Old Trafford , which has a capacity of over 76, and the most recently built football stadia in the Premier League include the Emirates Stadium and the City of Manchester Stadium.

English cricket grounds are smaller than the largest in some other countries, especially India and Australia , but the best of them have been modernised to a high standard, and two new international grounds have been built in recent years.

The largest English cricket ground, Lord's in London, is internationally regarded as the "home of cricket". Rugby union and rugby league clubs are generally poorer than their football counterparts.

Some clubs have good all seater grounds in the 10,, capacity range; some have older grounds which are still partly terraced, and others play in council -owned joint-use stadia e.

Some clubs rent stadia from football clubs. In some cases, union and league clubs share grounds; one current example of this phenomenon exists in Salford.

The United Kingdom has many world class golf courses which can accommodate crowds in the tens of thousands for tournaments. The greatest concentration of these is in Scotland.

The Open Championship is always played over a links course, the most famous venue being the Old Course at St Andrews on the east coast of Scotland.

Wentworth Club near London was once the only venue which hosted two European Tour events each season, but it now hosts only one.

The provision of athletics stadiums in the United Kingdom is very poor compared to most other developed countries.

The main reason for this is that it is not considered acceptable to ask football or rugby fans to sit behind an athletics track.

This means that athletics stadiums have to be separately financed and this can only be done with public funds, which have not been forthcoming on a large scale.

The largest athletics stadium built in the United Kingdom between Second World War and the s, the 38,capacity City of Manchester Stadium built for the Commonwealth Games , was reconfigured for football-only use after that event.

For many years, the largest existing stadium was the 25, seat Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield , and London's largest athletics venue was Crystal Palace , which has just 15, permanent seats.

Both have since been superseded by the venue now known as London Stadium , which was built as an 80, seater for the Summer Olympics and became the new home of West Ham United F.

By the time West Ham moved in, the capacity was reduced to 60,, and the track remained in place, with movable seating added to allow optimal configurations for both athletics and football.

Since the retention of the track was a necessary condition for tenancy, the Olympic Stadium won the right to host the World Championships in Athletics.

The Alexander Stadium in Birmingham is to be upgraded to a long term capacity of 25, temporarily 50, for the Commonwealth Games. There are 60 horse racecourses in Great Britain, with two more in Northern Ireland the sport is governed on an all-Ireland basis.

The best of them are world class. Silverstone Circuit , Donington Park and Brands Hatch are the three international motorsport courses. There are several outdoor velodromes for track cycle racing in the United Kingdom with Herne Hill in London being the only venue from the Olympics still in operation.
