We both did all right in physical education and sport while at school; if not the very best, at least more likely to be picked than picked on. (Well, DC was a bit better than that, as we suspect were the other authors in this collection.) Like the other contributors we might be seen as establishment insiders from the perspective of the young people in these research projects, though not perhaps by the teachers/deliverers. It is interesting that it is us – and ‘people like us’ – who take on the task of understanding and making sense of the experiences of young people who are perhaps not having a similarly positive experience in physical education or sport.
