Reviews. Sports magazines, like most magazines, like to include reviews of the latest gadget, piece of clothing, sports venue or club, or even the latest sports craze. These reviews should be informative; they need to include information on who is doing it/wearing it/attending it, what the benefits of the product or location are, a nod to any drawbacks, and importantly practical information, such as cost, location, availability, etc. Sports magazines usually like reviews to be written in the first person, so be sure to include your own personal opinion in the piece that you write.
