Time to blow your own trumpet...can you play sport?
I'll go first:
Tennis - average, I can beat people, but it is usually by relying on them making mistakes, or me hitting it deep into their court with them being too crap to hit it back. I can't serve, but I am pretty agile around a court. Can't hit topspin.
Table Tennis - Not so good, like tennis I haven't really mastered top spin so I generally lob it back. Would get murdered by a half-decent player.
Soccer - Never played for a team, played occassionally at school. I can't kick off my in-step with any power, so I use my toes :D I'm not too accurate at kicking either, hence the reason I stayed in the back line...where I can tackle quite well.
Basketball - I'm 165cm short...I can't play basketball. I have really good court coverage, but have never learnt the rules and can't shoot.
Rugby - Again never really played. Played once or twice at school, mostly it was touch rugby though. Know the rules, but can't pass.
Running - Ha. I can't run for crap. Unless it is in short bursts I am very slow.
Volleyball - Love playing volleyball. Despite my height I can play it reasonably well.
Cricket - Have always loved cricket, but only started playing late. I can bowl reasonably good medium pacers (can generally get swing) and bowl brilliant leg spin...when it lands on the bloody pitch (read: hardly ever). Have great variation but lack control. Cannot bat to save myself. Field reasonably..field in slips.
Swimming - Lack any form of endurance so swimming doesn't really agree with me.
Aussie Rules - I like to think I can play a tiny bit, that tiny bit is sharking a pack looking for a goal...and breaking tackles/hip & shouldering. Other than that I'm not so good.
Feel free to add other sports that I haven't touched on.

Ah sport something I should do so much more often.
Basketball: I played since I was about 12 and when I was in under 16s was playing for the 18s and 21s at the same time. I would like to think I WAS good but my current fitness is too poor for my own standards of play.
Soccer: Both indoor and outdoor I'm not bad at all but nothing fancy. My defensive abilities are quite good as I am fast and tend to read players quite well. Havn't played for a while though.
American Football: Great fun, I will take on anyone on the field in that rediculous armour. Which was also my downfall after misjudging a leap to catch a long pass and performing a backbreaker on myself with the help of an opponents knee after the pain subsided from my lower back over a month later I dicided it wasn't for me.
Rugby: Same as above, get a bit carried away, never played for a club.
Aussie Rules: Accurate kick but distance not up to scratch, tackle fairly well. Never played for a club.
Cricket: Decent all rounder, fast bowler (till everything starts to hurt, then it's back to spin)
Tennis: Never liked the game, further disliked the game after discovering I suck
Table Tennis: As Table tennis is downsized compared to tennis so is my level of sucking but I'm still no good.
Volleyball: an OK game, being fast and 6'4" helps
Running: What the hell for? lol
Swimming: Too boring so I never got good at it.
hmm I've played a lot of sports and can pick them up fairly easy and if I happen to like it can get fairly good. Is paintball a sport?

Baseball, I can hit the ball, catch the ball, and throw the ball so I guess I'm ok at it. Before the knees went south I was a catcher. Now I'm a pretty handy left fielder but at 47 I prefer to play first base.
