The disadvantages of playing sports is that you could make it as the center of your life to the exclusion of other worthwhile pursuits.  There is always the risk of injuring your body.  There is also the psychological stress associated with practice and competition.  The fear of failure and constant drive toward perfection are some of the mental pressures.  There is also the pressure of having to perform in front of an audience as is the case with organized sports.  Fans can be downright intolerant and even abusive.  In the case of professional sports, there are the pressures of fame and wealth.  Fans and the media will judge you based on your performance on the field, court, etc.  Coaches can inflict a lot of mental pressure by being very demanding with their athletes.  Coaches can actually sap the enthusiasm out of their players by adopting a 'winning is everything' philosophy to the exclusion of having fun.  In the case of professional athletes, their sport is their job and not their recreation.  So they will be spending the majority of their time traveling to practices and contests sacrificing valuable time spent with family and loved ones.

Obviously the best advantage of playing sport is that you keep your self fit and healthy. You develop your physique. And more over if you become real good then you become a celeb.

disadvantage is that you might be risking your body. Some sport involve real muscle and you can get hurt but you should not back up saying it because you need to sacrifice to get something isn't it

Doing sports shouldn't be about becoming a celeb... I've played soccer since I was 6 and I do it because it keeps me in shape, I meet new people and it's fun, sure I've had injuries but they heal and I always keep playing because it's something I enjoy, not because I want to be famous, you may look at it that way, but to be truly great at something, you have to love it first
