Welcome to the forums. Now you say you'd like to get into photography but you're on quite a restricted budget. For a DSLR I think you'll have to look at a secondhand model for that kind of money. Otherwise, your other best option would be to have what is called a bridge camera. It's a little bit bigger than a compact and comes a lens with approximately a 15x - 25x zoom, that is good enough to get you close in on the action.
The other thing to consider is a DSLR comes with an ever increasing footprint as you will find yourself buying ever more equipment to go with it as time passes. With a bridge camera, you cannot interchange the lenses for starters, so the amount of additional equipment you may buy to use with it is much much more limited.
