Catch all five episodes of `I`m Game` on Sky Sports through the week

From Monday, Sky Sports is bringing you a new series called `I`m Game` in support of Stonewall`s Rainbow Laces campaign.

Research shows four in 10 LGBT people think sport isn`t welcoming, so we`re putting that to the test by taking well-known figures from the world of entertainment to experience sport for themselves.

We wanted to challenge their perceptions and help to break down existing stereotypes - on all sides.

Sky Sports News` Mark McAdam is your host for five hugely entertaining shows which may just make you think a little differently about sport...

A new happy Hammer?

When he was a teenager, comedian Tom Allen was invited to join some friends at a football match - but only if he `didn`t open his mouth` when he was there.

But he`s prepared to give the fan experience another go, agreeing to join Mark at the Premier League match between West Ham and Sheffield United.

Before the game, Tom thought football was something `he wasn`t invited to` but, after meeting fans and watching the action from the stands, have we changed his mind?

Watch on Monday at 5.30pm and 8.30pm on Sky Sports Mix; also showing at 8.15pm on Sky Sports Premier League.

For the love of the darts

Stephen K Amos and Stephen Bailey had no experience or knowledge of darts... until Mark took them to the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton.

The stand-up duo were given expert advice by Gerwyn Price and Dimitri Van den Bergh, before taking part in their own six-dart challenge at the oche in front of the crowds.

They chat to referee and Stonewall Sport Champion Huw Ware about his experiences of coming out and share their own views about sport being something that is in danger of being lost from the LGBT community.

Watch on Tuesday at 5.30pm and 9pm on Sky Sports Mix; also showing at 7pm and 9.15pm on Sky Sports Arena.

Holding court

Catherine Bohart and Sarah Keyworth are stand-up comedians - and also girlfriends - who think netball isn`t for them. Memories of PE classes at school and not being as athletic as some of the other girls have combined to have an effect on their mindsets.

Sarah and Catherine think netball`s not for them because it`s `too girly`... could the England Roses help to prove them wrong?

Will meeting the England Roses and training with the squad change that? And will the competitive side of their relationship come out on the court?

Sarah might even discover she has some previously undiscovered shooting prowess...

Watch on Wednesday at 5.30pm and 8.30pm on Sky Sports Mix.

`Beast Mode` and the Judge

He`s used to dispensing justice and settling arguments - but could Robert `Judge` Rinder get the better of `The Beast`?

Mark takes TV`s most meticulous magistrate to train with Wycombe Wanderers and learn about the unique authority of Adebayo Akinfenwa.
