    SECTION 4

    In this section you will hear a lecture about sports in Britain.

    Having a drink at the [……………………………], going for a walk in the country or watching sports on the television – these are all main ways in which many British people like to relax on weekends or [……………………………]. Such activities tell us about how modern British people like to spend their [……………………………]; but if you look more closely, we can see these activities are not just recent [……………………………], but are deeply [……………………………]in the British culture over many [……………………………]. Today we will talk about some sports which we see played [……………………………]the world and were born in Britain.

    Let’s begin with football. As we all known Britain is the place of origin of [……………………………]football. The idea of sports having [……………………………]– like the football season – also comes from the natural [……………………………]of an agricultural [……………………………], where the timing of harvests and the general weather [……………………………]how people spent their time. Football is played in early spring when the weather is wet and not too cold. In winter, bad weather kept people in doors and they had not so much work to do on their [……………………………]. So men used to doing hard work, [……………………………]labour found they needed to [……………………………]their energy and so got together regularly to play [……………………………]and fast games like football. Meanwhile, during the [……………………………]football has been regarded as a rough sport for the [……………………………]young men although all [……………………………]classes used to join in on the local football match. Today, violence is still [……………………………]with football. “Football [……………………………]“, supporters of rival teams, sometimes clash before, during and after matches and run riot through the city or town, breaking windows and beating each other up. Of course the football [……………………………]gets a lot of attention. Nowadays, before some big matches when trouble is [……………………………], police usually patrol the streets, pubs close to the football courts and some shops even lock their doors and [……………………………]their windows. The Football [……………………………]was set up in [……………………………]. It is the league or association that the [……………………………]compete in, for a trophy title known as the FA Cup. The Football Association put out a series of [……………………………]to control violence so as to ensure a successful match.

    A more [……………………………]sport that is very popular in the world is tennis. Wimbledon, a town near London, is where the world’s top players gather to compete. It has been one of the major sports events of the British [……………………………]. As we all know tennis was invented in Britain but few people know tennis owes its [……………………………]to the church. According to the records by the [……………………………]century, people were making a game of [……………………………]a ball off the side of their local churches or [……………………………], first using the hand and later a [……………………………].

    Football, archery, tennis and other sports were frequently played in [……………………………].

    In England, the sound of summer is said to be the sound of “leather on willow” – the ball hitting a [……………………………]bat. Cricket was one of the very first team sports in Britain to be played according to the same organised rules nationally. Before the Victorian era, and in modern Britain, people from all walks of life play cricket, but in the [……………………………], cricket became a sport [……………………………]with the upper classes. It was a kind of a “snob” game played by boys who attended public schools. And then the sport became popular in the public school [……………………………]in the colonies of Australia, New Zealand, India and Pakistan. British English is full of [……………………………]to the sport, those who are not [……………………………]with the game will be [……………………………]by it. Such as “that’s not cricket” means “that’s not fair” and “to play the game” means “t£ be fair”.

    The true sport of British Kings (and Queens) is not skiing or [……………………………], but horse racing. National horse races have been held throughout Britain for hundreds of years. The horse at the heart of [……………………………]life was a symbol of [……………………………]and wealth and necessary to traveling, hunting and [……………………………]. The sport of riding a horse is still considered rather [……………………………]or [……………………………]sport because the average British family cannot afford to own a horse. Meanwhile, there are stables which rent horses and offer riding courses at [……………………………]prices. So certainly, almost everyone can afford to place a bet on a horse race now and then. As a sport of kings, kings and [……………………………]alike enjoy betting on the horses. The Queen, who likes riding, also likes betting on the horses and often [……………………………]some major races. Although she is [……………………………]rich, she gets very excited when the horse she has placed her money on wins.

    There are two kinds of [……………………………]: the flat race. where horses and riders compete on a flat, oval track; and the [……………………………], which is racing either across the countryside, or around a course designed to represent the [……………………………]you might overcome in the countryside. The Grand National which is set up in [……………………………]and it’s the world’s most famous [……………………………]. However, some horses are usually injured and badly hurt horses are sometimes shot. Animal lovers cannot [……………………………]that animals should be hurt and killed for people’s entertainment. The biggest social event [……………………………]to horse racing is The Roval Ascot. where people [……………………………]and show off how fashionable they are as well as watching the races and place their bets. Women especially wear very [……………………………]and [……………………………]hats and dress designed for the occasion. Television and newspapers will often comment on their [……………………………].
