Fair play is essential. Sportsmanship is a leading feature that you must have when playing any game. From chess to boules, it does not matte. Keep your head leveled and keep going.
My rules for sports:
-Never, ever cheat. Why bother?
-Win gracefully and lose gracefully
-You never know who is watching
-Look the part, dress nice.
-These are games. Do not get to into them.
-Be intense, but not too intense.
