This book is a collection of sports related poetry and creative writing which stemmed from a university module called The Sporting Image. Following a poetry writing workshop to help students structure their ideas and poetry writing skills an engaging degree of self-expression about sporting concepts seems to have emerged which we are proud to showcase within these pages. Many sports are featured including boxing, cricket, football and gymnastics and many issues tackled such as teamwork, comradeship, cheating, beauty and ugliness in sport. Consequently this is a varied compilation which we hope the reader will find as enjoyable to read or even perform, as we have had in producing it.
