Describe a Leisure Activity (A Game, Hobby, or Sport) That is Popular in your Country – IELTS Cue Card
Describe a leisure activity (a game, hobby, or sport) that is popular in your country.

- why people enjoy doing this activity
and explain what you like/dislike about this activity.
In my country, people get involved in several leisure activities to enjoy their times with friends and families. “Sports” always binds people together. On such a note, the leisure activity which is widely popular in our country is Football.
People, especially kids, do not need nets and trimmed playgrounds to play the game. The game is an emotion for them. Playing on a muddy ground on a rainy day can give you chills. The Kolkata derby has always been the greatest in the world. The El classico has been equally famous. The clash between Ronaldo and Messi, the two greatest of the same generation has its perk. Sunil Chhetri, Anirudh Thapa, Adil Khan and many others have paved the way to Asian Cup.
Football is the type of game where people can sit till 90 minutes with no assumption. The excitement from minute 1 to min 90 remains absolutely the same. It needs no prior planning except for the formations. People sit there and pitch for their favourite team and hope to win. Many colleges and schools hold football tournaments for entertainment too.
Football is an emotion, even to me. This is the sport where you can fight like cats and dogs for pitching for your respective team or play for it. At the end of the day, you all will be ending it on a happy note. That is the beauty of the game that binds people together as one. They might have differences of opinion, but the love for the game is eternal.
