    I really want to have free sports clubs, so I can join my local athletics club!

  • Isabella G (Age 13) wrote on Sunday, 12 August 2012 @ 10:51

    I totally agree

  • JOSHUA H (Age 12) wrote on Sunday, 12 August 2012 @ 14:17

    Tried to sign petition but was told that your organisation's certificate has been revoked and had to close the web page.

  • Joshua N (Age 12) wrote on Monday, 13 August 2012 @ 13:54

    i think that it is a great idea and if it happens i am going to sign up for it!!

  • Catherine J (Age 14) wrote on Monday, 13 August 2012 @ 18:19

    I think this is a great idea to get kids and teens into sport and fitness! I am involved in lots of sport and I will definately do even more sport!

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Monday, 13 August 2012 @ 20:57

    No. Not signing. I prefer Technology

  • Niamh S (Age 15) wrote on Tuesday, 14 August 2012 @ 18:53

    Great idea for more people to play sports, just signed it. ;)

  • Gabriela Z (Age 13) wrote on Tuesday, 14 August 2012 @ 21:18

  • Gabriela Z (Age 13) wrote on Tuesday, 14 August 2012 @ 21:18

    agree

  • Katie D (Age 16) wrote on Wednesday, 15 August 2012 @ 20:41

    No way, I'm not signing! I don't like sports! It's unfair on people who aren't as good at it, and it can be embarrassing as well. Well I'm not doing extra sport; next year I'm doing 1 hour a week due to taking options.

  • Oscar S (Age 12) wrote on Monday, 20 August 2012 @ 07:53

    Done, sports are here for us to help us unite and make peace.

  • Lily M (Age 11) wrote on Monday, 20 August 2012 @ 10:50

    I might sign up for it , I have to hope my parents agree

  • Charlotte C (Age 14) wrote on Tuesday, 21 August 2012 @ 20:14

    I think that its a great idea to keep the Olympic spirit alive and it could mean more success for team GB in future Olympics! But also sport doesn't have to be expensive for instance i play for my local football club and it isn't expensive and you can get active in your local park for free!!!

  • Jack G (Age 12) wrote on Tuesday, 28 August 2012 @ 19:59

    Done() () ( . . )

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Wednesday, 29 August 2012 @ 07:25

    It's only good, and I'm sure Redhorse will agree, if you like sport. I draw the Line at tennis and table tennis.

  • Eve M (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 31 August 2012 @ 15:39

    I really want to sign! if I had to describe my personallity in one word, it would be sporty. But what do you do? Do you or your perents sign? But it sounds cool!

  • Daisy H (Age 13) wrote on Wednesday, 17 October 2012 @ 19:00

    I'm sorry, it's just not something I believe in. :(

  • Molly W (Age 12) wrote on Friday, 26 October 2012 @ 09:58

    I signed it sounds so cool I hope it goes through!

  • Emily D (Age 13) wrote on Saturday, 3 November 2012 @ 12:30

    @redhorse10 wouldn't you like to let other people enjoy it, whether you like sports or not? If i didn't like sports I would sign it, because not only other people would be able to enjoy it, it would give me the chance to try new things. like, i can't swim, and where i live it is expensive for me to learn and practice, so i would love to be able to do sports for free.

  • Louis S (Age 12) wrote on Sunday, 25 November 2012 @ 15:59

    Great idea :D Consider it done!

  • George B (Age 11) wrote on Thursday, 29 November 2012 @ 20:01

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Saturday, 1 December 2012 @ 20:26

    Thanks redhorse! ;)

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Saturday, 1 December 2012 @ 20:28

    I may as well, I suppose it wouldn't do any harm. Don't get me wrong, some sports aren't half bad, but some are TERRIBLE!

  • Katie D (Age 16) wrote on Monday, 3 December 2012 @ 21:19

    Musicgirl, no. No offence but I don't think people should be forced to do it if they don't want to. It's unfair on them.

  • Liam S (Age 12) wrote on Wednesday, 12 December 2012 @ 16:01

    redhorse10. You don't have to sign if you don't want to. Musicgirl, remember that. -Buzzer

  • Lily M (Age 11) wrote on Saturday, 9 March 2013 @ 16:17

    Done it!

  • Katie D (Age 16) wrote on Thursday, 21 March 2013 @ 21:04

    Not been on this for quite a while but thanks Buzzer. Yeah, I still don't like sports much! I wouldn't sign the petition unfortunately, even now, because I don't believe in the general idea of it myself. Fair play to those of you who want to, that's up to you, but personally it's not my thing. :)

  • Molly W (Age 12) wrote on Saturday, 23 March 2013 @ 11:47

    i do alot of swimming but it costs 8 pound per session and i swim 3 times a week

  • Lucy C (Age 13) wrote on Saturday, 30 March 2013 @ 10:26

    I know, swimming and other sports should be cheaper for lessons, they are telling us to do sport and it costs loads of money!!!
