Why do men think women can't play sport?

You would think we'd gone past all that sexist nonsense some years ago. But still, this bizarre opinion lingers – women can't hit, run, catch or kick as well as a bloke.

The England women's cricket team has been bashing the Aussies this month but you won't hear too much about that.

And Keira Knightley did naff all for women's football, despite starring in Bend it Like Beckham because the game still receives very little attention from the media, or general public.

I genuinely can't catch balls. But then neither can many men I know.

What we need is some sort of It's A Knockout style showdown. That would sort this out once and for all.
