Whereas many people who trade pre-race horse racing may not have a deep knowledge about the sport, many people who trade football are knowledgeable about it.

Football can be traded both Pre-Match and In-Play and is popular for the following reasons:

  • It attracts a lot of attention and therefore a large amounts of money fill the markets. Big matches which are played live on TV can often see anywhere between £2 million to £10 million traded on them. Major international tournaments can have double this amount traded on them
  • People understand the sport and the teams they are trading
  • There are hundreds of football matches that are tradeable on Betfair every week

Football Horse Racing Trading Psychology

What Is A Trading ‘Edge’ and How Do You Discover Your Own?

[vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1498427789377{border: 1px solid #cecece !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]When you first start on your trading journey you’ll keep hearing the pro-traders saying stuff like ‘you need an edge in the markets’, ‘find your edge’, ‘determine your edge and you will become profitable in the markets’. I’m sure, like me, when you first started out you were confused as to where you could find this edge and just wanted someone to just tell you what and ‘edge’ was!

I remember googling to find the definition of what an edge was – it frustrated me to find there was no simple answer! After a year of trading I now know exactly what someone is talking about when they’re talking about an ‘edge’.

Put simply your ‘edge’ is a piece (or multiple pieces) of information which gives you more knowledge about a market situation than other market participants.

An edge can also come in the form of skill level or a psychological trait. For example, having the ability to stop yourself from overtrading.

But the real edge of a trader comes from their mental capacity to control their emotions, feelings and ability to execute their trading plans.

Here are some sport-specific examples of edges:

Examples of an Edge in Horse Racing Trading

TV Pictures Example

In Horse Racing an edge may be that you have TV pictures. Say you’ve subscribed to RacingUK and you’re watching the horses mill about at the start before a jumps race and you can see that one horse is playing up badly. Many of the market participants may not know this information because they’re not watching TV pictures, but you do, and as such you lay the horse and as the price drifts you back it at higher odds in order to hedge up.

Or

L2B (Lay to Back) Example

You’ve done your morning research on potential L2Bs on the day’s horse racing using Proform’s BetFinder and spot that an opportunity has come up with a certain horse having been backed in way below what Proform’s BetFinder tool would consider value. You also know that the horse is not an angle for pace and decide to lay it just before the off. The horse does as you expected and the odds rise in-play, you hedge up for your profit – winning no matter the outcome.

Football Example

Overs/Unders

Everyone’s expecting goals galore in the big match this weekend and this is reflected in the price, but because you researched the game on Football Form Labs you believe that statistically there is actually a higher probability of the game having Under 2.5 goals. You back Under 2.5 goals at the start of the match and hedge when the odds have reached your target or pre-defined profit level.

Other Examples of an Edge:

  • Taking your losses before they get too big
  • Having done prior research
  • Shorter delay in ‘live’ TV pictures
  • Controlling your emotions
  • Having the control to not overtrade
  • Well controlled bank/stake management
  • Experience
  • Using trading software
  • Being selective about the type of markets or horse races you’re going to trade and having a deep understanding of the market dynamics – ie, specialising in one race type such as maidens only, focusing on the unders/overs markets specifically
  • Being a courtsider
[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/GrWWjNtdt5I” el_width=”90″ align=”center”][vc_column_text]See? An edge can be as simple as that. An example of those without an ‘edge’ would be punters sticking a bet on a match outcome or a horse because that’s their ‘gut feeling’.

The most important thing with an edge is that is applied consistently and proves to bring you profits in the long term. This is where the real edge of a trader comes from.

Lastly, to define your edge you’ll initially want to focus on one or two markets and become aware of that market’s dynamics. For example, if you wanted to focus on trading the Overs/Unders or Correct Score markets in-play then you would need to be fully aware of how ‘Time Decay’ influences the odds movement in this market.

The more you specialise in something the more you will have an edge over that market. Thankfully there are lots of tools on SportsTradingTools.co.uk that have an in-built edge that you can tap into and use to help you develop your own edge so you begin to profit from the markets.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”Sports Tool Overview” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Click Here to Discover Your Edge” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_button_block=”true” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1501077079524{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fsports-trading-tools-overview%2F|||”]

The 3 Best FREE Tools for Football Trading and Matched Betting

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1498050547697{border: 1px solid #cecece !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]These tools are 3 of the most excellent free resources available on the internet and can help football traders with almost every aspect of trading the beautiful game. Whether you’re a trader or matched bettor who’s more focused on the in-play markets, pre-match markets or just want a great free tool for doing some statistical research the following 3 resources will have you covered:[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Flashscores

Flashscores is the go-to app for keeping tabs on the football matches you have an active interest in. Whilst it has some uses for research – such as for checking the recent H2Hs between teams – I find it’s best use is for selecting the games you want to keep track of and getting notifications for a number of things:

  • Reminders for when the match is about to start (1 hour before KO)
  • For when a match kicks off
  • Goals
  • Red cards
  • Line-ups

I would say Flashscores has slightly less use for trading, unless you’re out and about and doing some automated stuff and you just want to be kept informed of the current scores. I’d assume if you’re trading the game I’m sure you’d be paying much more attention to the Betfair trading software you’re trading it on and watching the match live meaning that Flashscores has little use.

But a real fantastic use of it is for matched betting accumulators as often you have many games you need to keep an eye on and have a real need to know when they’re about to start.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2455″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_separator el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]If you want a fuller bodied tool to use for in-play trading the In-Play Scanner comes highly recommended. Read my full review, here.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]

Soccerstats

I love this website. It’s such an excellent (and completely free!) resource. It has stats on almost everything but I’ve found it is particularly excellent for researching Over/Unders. For example, in the table screenshotted below you can see at a quick glance which teams have had the majority of their games end Under 2.5 Goals (highlighted in red).

You can delve much deeper into these stats by clicking around through each individual team, their recent head to heads and much, much more. I recommend you take a look yourself as it has far too many use cases for me to list them all here.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2456″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_message]Top Tip: If you’re using a tool like SoccerStats it’s best to wait around 5 matches into the season where stats have more relevance and when the impact of anomalies will be slightly less.[/vc_message][vc_separator el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]Interested in trading football and joining a community of football traders? Goal Profits is my number 1 recommended tool for football trading due to its excellent learning resources for newcomers to trading. Read my full review, here.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]

OddsPortal

I only started using this tool when I began my exploits in Pre-Match Trading. On one of the Skype groups I joined someone mentioned that they used OddsPortal to research the historical odds of fixtures they planned to trade pre-match. This is invaluable as you can get the starting prices of the previous head to heads of the game you’re researching.

This often give you a good idea of what the price may be hovering around when the game gets to kick off time. Of course, this depends a lot on there not being many varying circumstantial differences from the previous time the teams met – ie Barcelona’s price would be completely different if they were without both Suarez and Messi, for example.

Another great use of OddsPortal is that it keeps track of the movement of the prices between bookmakers. For an example, see the screenshot below where I’ve highlighted the movement of Pinnacle’s Real Madrid odds vs Barcelona in the 2nd leg of the 2017 Spanish Super Cup.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2457″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_separator el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]Want to delve deeper into the lower-risk world of pre-match football trading?

I can confirm for you now that said website was not Profit Maximiser. Definitely not Profit Maximiser. (It was Profit Maximiser. Or Profit ‘Maximizers’ as Geoff liked to call their members when he was giving the site some extremely good publicity to his 9,000+ followers on Twitter.)[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2421″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]But it’s not like The Guardian would have ever promoted matched betting sites such as the likes of Profit Maximiser before…[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2422″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]…or even dared hint at the multi-accounting that has so exasperated Geoff. Ahem… Oops.

By the way, if at this point you’re not aware of what Matched Betting is, you can read my guide, here. But essentially, it’s the simple method of extracting real money from free bet bonus offers that bookmakers regularly offer through laying them on a betting exchange such as Betfair or Smarkets. There are numerous websites out there that help punters extract this risk-free profit – as seen in my Matched Betting Service Comparison.

But I’d like to argue that Geoff ‘The Beaten Bookie’ Banks is wrong to berate the ‘terrorists’ who ‘cyber attacked’ his website and to illustrate this I’ve given him 3 ideas as to how he can proactively counteract it in the future:

Idea #1: The Beaten Bookie Should Set a Limit on New Registrations

Geoff Banks isn’t an idiot. In fact, I think we’d all agree that bookmakers are a bunch of pretty smart people. So why give off about Matched Betting sites like Profit Maximiser instead of busting the chops of his staff who allowed his firm to be taken advantage of?

Any smart bookie who wants to discourage a flood of matched bettors sets a limit on how many people can take part in their sign-up promotions. It’s been done before by firms in the industry, so why didn’t his company foresee this (quite obvious) potential problem?

Idea #2: It’s Fair Game. If You Can’t Handle the Fight Don’t Enter the Ring

For point two I’d like to refer to a quote in the aforementioned Guardian article which helped Geoff spout his views into the ether:

“There is nothing illegal or wrong in people taking advantage of bookmakers if they are silly enough to make free bet offers. One person can take up as many offers as they like and bookmakers should not expect loyalty or anything else.”

Geoff Banks

Begs the question then, Geoff, why offer free bets when it’s evident that educated bettors can take advantage of ‘silly’ bookmakers?

Can't Abuse Free Bet Promotions Meme

Idea #3: Find a Unique Selling Point to Stop Your Firm from Falling Even Further Behind Within the Industry

I think a lot of the big bookmakers are still adapting to the ever-evolving digital landscape – ie the increase in the technological advances of the internet era and the birth of the Betting Exchange. Which, by the way, happened over 17 years ago now and yet the haggard old bookies are STILL complaining about it.

Some bookies have floundered whilst some have achieved better success than others. Betfair obviously have their pioneering Betting Exchange and Bet365 have their all-digital business model. But let’s take, for example, Paddy Power. What would you say is their USP (Unique Selling Point)?

  • It’s not their odds. I’m pretty sure everyone reading this would agree on that.
  • It’s not their website either. It’s nowhere near as beautifully designed and accessible as Bet365’s.
  • It’s most definitely not their slow and clunky mobile app (this is one similarity they share with your own app, Geoff). Which is, again, blown out of the water by Bet365’s sleek and sophisticated piece of technology that provides an outstanding user experience for the user.

Do you know what it is yet, Geoff? It’s simple – it’s their marketing!

Paddy Power have a brand and voice that outreaches the vast majority of their competitors. With their 670k followers on Twitter they have almost double the amount of Bet365’s follower base and around 5 times the amount of Betfair. And over 600,000 times more than Geoff Banks’ company’s own Twitter….ahem.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2424″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2426″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2425″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]This is because Paddy’s brand voice is distinct, visceral and pitches its tone with perfect timing to their target market.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_raw_js]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[/vc_raw_js][vc_column_text]So, when you complain about punters not showing any loyalty to bookmakers these days maybe you should reflect on your company’s own brand and why they don’t show any loyalty to you. It’s not about the odds or the offers. People very rarely bet with Bet365 or Paddy Power because they promote great offers – it’s about their USP inside the industry. Bet365 with its great outstanding user experience across all digital platforms and Paddy Power, because, y’know, their brand persona has helped to define themselves as if they’re just every 18-35 year-old male’s best mate.

Conclusion

Geoff may have done a benefit to matched betting sites like Profit Maximiser by giving them a good bit of free promotion with this spat.  I doubt the Gambling Commission will truly care about the complaints submitted to them because they’re never going to be able to stop bookmakers offering free bets – and bookmakers wouldn’t want to stop offering them whilst there’s still millions more punters out there for them to capture.

In hindsight you may have just exacerbated the problem of matched betting for the industry. Rule #1 for Bookmakers in such a tough industry, Geoff – Don’t talk about Matched Betting clubs.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

5 Things Normal People Do with Their Matched Betting Earnings

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1498427789377{border: 1px solid #cecece !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]It’s no secret that since 2008 and the financial crisis that the regular man and woman has been getting screwed. There’s not a week goes by that I read an article on the internet that tells me inflation is rising yet wages are falling. What happens when prices rises but wages fall? People get financially squeezed!

“The upshot is that today’s young adults are the first generation since at least World War Two not to start their working lives with higher incomes than those born before them.”

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_single_image image=”1737″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]

(Source: BBC News April 2017 www.bbc.co.uk/news/)

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]That article and quote was published in the month I turned 28 myself and when I read it I couldn’t help but find it an incredibly depressing fact! As someone who’s been matched betting since 2014 I don’t know how many people my age get by with just their yearly salary.

So, to give you some inspiration to start your path to financial freedom I’ve pulled 5 example from the Profit Maximiser Facebook group of what real people like you and me are spending their matched betting earnings on.

Just a note: The following includes real examples from Profit Maximiser, the matched betting service I personally use. I’ve blurred out the names on the posts for privacy reasons, but if you want to verify them yourself you can search for them when you get into the Profit Maximiser Facebook group.

1. Pay for Their Dream Car

It’s an obvious one, isn’t it? All of these guys on Profit Maximiser posted to show off their new purchases. It’s jokingly known as ‘willy waving’ on the Facebook group but sure why wouldn’t you show people what you’ve bought with your new found financial freedom?

People want to see what others are doing and get inspired to take action. Whilst I didn’t use my matched betting funds to put down a deposit on my car, I do use the money to pay it off every month. I had a Renault Clio that was falling apart, so I got myself a Volkswagen Scirocco in 2015 and I love it!

Then you have people who like to buy a £50k Aston Martin from their profits…[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1738″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”1739″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”1740″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_cta h2=”Profit Maximiser” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Find Out More” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1501105142306{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofitmax||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

Profit Maximiser will open your eyes on how to make consistent, long-term profits by outsmarting the bookmakers with simple maths time and time again. In truth, there is no better edge in betting than using a product like Profit Maximiser. If you take action you will have the yearly sub made back within a week. It is a life-changing product.

With a 30-day trial available for only £1, the only question is, are you willing to take the chance on spending £1 to potentially make thousands?

2. Pay for Their Deposit on a New House/Pay Their Mortgage/Pay Their Rent

People frequently post on Profit Maximiser about how they’ve put their money to good use by putting it down as a deposit on a new house or even just increasing their mortgage payments so they can pay it off sooner.

You can tell by their posts in the Facebook group that matched betting has been of huge benefit to them – I mean, who wouldn’t want some help with paying off such a massive amount of money such as mortgage or a deposit on a house.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1748″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”1749″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”1750″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]

3. Pay for The Little Luxuries in Life

I’ll take the mic on this one and speak from my own experience. When I started matched betting I was 25, living at home and had just started my first office job. So, the money I was making from Profit Maximiser was spent on myself. Because why not? I bought:

  • A Playstation 4 – my first big purchase
  • A new 42” HDTV to go along with it
  • A new Macbook
  • A new Macbook Air for my brother for Xmas – how generous was I?!
  • A holiday to Thailand – if you haven’t been, I highly recommend it!
  • A city break to Rome for me and my Mum – cus I love my Mum and she deserved it!

Looking back now, I kind of wish I’d kept some more of it and invested it, but I was financially naïve. These days, since I’ve moved out, I use matched betting to pay for the more simple things like rent, living expenses and paying my car. But I also find some time to invest it into the likes of Bitcoin.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Try Profit Maximiser for Just £1!” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofitmax||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

4. Starting A Business/Investing it

I’ve seen countless people on Profit Maximiser post about how they saved their earnings so they could start their own business. These are the ones who were thinking long term – which I kind of wish I did when I first started out!

As said above, I use my earnings to invest in Bitcoin. I’ve read and watched a lot of stuff over the past year about how money makes money, so I’m more conservative about how I spend my earnings and instead think of what I could do with it in the future once I’ve compounded it.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1502541499425{border: 5px outset #cecece !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”]Fast track your learning of Matched Betting and get reaching your own financial freedom by signing up to our free 7-part Email course: ‘Matched Betting: 7 Steps to Reaching Your Financial Freedom’!

5. Pay for Their Wedding

I’m not married, but we all know that weddings cost a sh*tload. The ball park figure is about £10-20k… I guess? With weddings often taking between 1-2 years to plan that’s plenty of time to make most, if not all that money.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1753″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”1752″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”1751″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]That’s 5 things that regular people do with their extra yearly income. I wanted to include a mix of the simple and the more extravagant because to some people an extra income wouldn’t be spent on luxuries.

To some people the extra income is a way of keeping debt-free and cutting out the stresses in life that come with regular bills.

This is proof that you can change all that if you choose to.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1697″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]That’s all for Step 2, I hope that’s given you plenty of inspiration!

The 3 Best Online Tools for Learning Pre-Race Trading

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1498427789377{border: 1px solid #cecece !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Trading the horses pre-race is one of the most popular ways to trade Betfair. When the concept is explained to people at first they’re often confused by how you can ensure a profit on a horse before it has even run its race no matter whether it wins, doesn’t place, loses or falls. But you can often see huge moves in these markets in the last 10 minutes before the off. It seems that almost every new trader starts their journey by trading them – but why? 

1. Multiple opportunities to profit daily

With racing on 363 days out of the 365 days in a year and with an average of 3 meetings per day you can see the appeal. There are also plenty of evening races throughout the year meaning those who work during the day still have an opportunity to practice their skills.

2. Volume and Liquidity

With races averaging between £400k-700k that means professional traders can often get large stakes in and out of the markets multiple times – creating large profits.

3. It’s often considered the true art of sports trading

Trading Pre-Race Horse Racing is like trading no other sport because you can trade it purely by reading what is happening in the markets and why – whereas other sports rely heavily on statistical analysis. Essentially, it teaches you a lot of the fundamental skills that come with being a profitable trader.

That’s not to say it is easy though. New traders have to be aware that there are even when/if you can master the art of trading that there are lots of psychological hurdles traders need to overcome in order to stay profitable. This is one of the main reasons Caan Berry’s Advanced Video Pack is our top pick out of the three tools listed below.

What Benefits Do the Following Tools Offer?

  • They will teach you the fundamentals to trading the horses
  • They allow you to learn in your own time and at your own pace
  • Much cheaper than a one-day course
  • They will help you learn from the mistakes that other professionals have already made

Top Tips from My Experience

  • Only take a day or two using the practice mode on your trading software if you’re practicing the lessons taught in these tools. You need to trade with real money – even if it’s just £2 stakes – to see how you will truly perform under the pressure
  • Don’t dive in with a large trading bank and/or large stakes in your first few months. Most traders fully blow at least 2-3 trading banks. I’m telling you this because I blew a £500 to start with and then a couple of months later tried with £2000… and well… Yeh… Stupid of me.
  • The best time to learn pre-race trading is between March to October as the markets are full of money and have a sense of stability about them. In the winter months, they are very volatile due to decreased volume and liquidity

Brief Overview: It’s my personal feeling that the Betfair Trading Community is better to join if you are looking for an all-round community rather than as a sole resource to learn horse racing trading in-depth, however it does have some useful resources for complete newcomers to trading the sport.

Short Review: The Betfair Trading Community is specifically tailored for those who are new to trading sports on Betfair. If you are just beginning out on your journey and are not sure which sport best suits you then it is a great place to start.
