Help with PHP form

Hey guys any reason why the "sport" and "shoe" fields arent returning any results
<?php

/************************
* Variables you can change
*************************/

$mailto   = "leroice@mac.com"; // Enter your mail addres here. 
$name     = ucwords($_POST['name']); 

$email    = $_POST['email'];

$sport    = $_POST['sport'];

$shoe    = $_POST['shoe'];

$message  = $_POST['message'];

	if(strlen($_POST['name']) < 1 ){
		echo  'email_error';
	}
	
  else if(strlen($email) < 1 ) {
		echo 'email_error';
	}

  else if (!eregi("^[A-Z0-9._%-]+@[A-Z0-9._%-]+\.[A-Z]{2,4}$", $email)) {
    echo 'email_error';
  }

	else if(strlen($message) < 1 ){
		echo 'email_error';

  } else {

	// NOW SEND THE ENQUIRY

	$email_message="\n\n" .
		"Name: " .
		ucwords($name) .
		"\n" .
		"Email: " .
		$email .
		"\n" .
		"Preffered Sport: " .
		$sport .
		"\n" .
		"Shoe Size: " .
		$shoe .
		"\n" .
		"Comments: " .
		"\n" .
		$message .
		"\n" .
		"\n\n" ;

		$email_message = trim(stripslashes($email_message));
		mail($mailto, $shoe, $email_message, "From: \"$vname\" <".$email.">\nReply-To: \"".ucwords($name)."\" <".$email.">\nX-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion() );

}
?>

You didn't include the underlying form that posts to this page, but I would suspect a problem in the form.  Verify that the fields for sport and shoe are named appropriately.  Ie.
Sport: <input type="text" name="sport" /><br />
Shoe: <input type="text" name="shoe" />

Here's the markup for the form
<!-- Contact Form Start //-->
                                      <form action="#" id="contactform"> 
                                      <fieldset>

You named both the sports and the shoe fields "subject" that's why nothing is posted for those two fields.
+++++
<input type="text" name="subject" class="textfield" id="sport" value="Enter your Favourite Sport here" />
                                      <div class="clear"></div>
                                      <label>Shoe Size*</label>
                                      <input type="text" name="subject" class="textfield" id="shoe" value="Please indicate Men's or Women's sizing" />
                                      <div class="clear"></div>  
+++++

Just change above code with following code:

++++
<input type="text" name="sport" class="textfield" id="sport" value="Enter your Favourite Sport here" />
                                      <div class="clear"></div>
                                      <label>Shoe Size*</label>
                                      <input type="text" name="shoe" class="textfield" id="shoe" value="Please indicate Men's or Women's sizing" />
                                      <div class="clear"></div>  
++++

It should then work. You have given name="subject" for both id="sport" and id="shoe". When form is submitted in php _POST array is build on name attribute. If name is not properly given then it will not be there in _POST array.
Any reply from the asker?

Sorry guys haven't been online for past few days. Will have a try and let you know soon.

Thanks again for the help. It is much appreciated
I think the rest helped you with this one.. but a general tip..

use

print_r($_REQUEST);

to see all submitted variables to test....
try to write like this
if(isset($_post['submit']))
{
$comapny_name=$_POST['company_name'];//like this all  fields create
$sql="insert into tbl_users (company_name, first_name, last_name, business_street_address, business_suburb_city, business_postcode, email, phone, mobile, industry_id , username,password) values('$company_name', '$first_name', '$last_name', '$business_street_address', '$business_suburb_city', '$business_postcode', '$email', '$phone', '$mobile', '$industry', '$username','$password')";
mysql_query($sql);
header('location:samepage.php')
exit;
