Weekend Sports


#1

Hi, I’m looking to take part in some kind of sporting activity during weekends in Taipei. I can play football (the foot and ball variety), I’m good at sports that involve legally punching and/or kicking people, and thats about it. Can anyone recommend anything? Do you partake in weekend sports? let me know


#2

What about those Game Club guys? They play chess and stuff on a Sunday.


#3

do you think that they will mind me just rolling on up and laying the boot in while they are playing chess?


#4

Try a boxing club. You don’t need to speak chinese to box. :wink:


#5

Southpaw, if you’re intersted I’ll take the footy, cricket bat and tennis racket into the game club next time. If that gets to boring, we could have ourselves a little stoush, but I bugs the cricket bat :wink:

What happened to the Taipei Baboons after their 2002 Bali experience? Maybe you could go join the local rugby team.


#7

You can’t legally kick or punch in Rugby. Get yourself an xbox or ps2.


#8

to chad, what does speaking chinese have to do with anything? and if anyone does know of a boxing club that would be good. but i do hear that there are some pub footy teams around, i would be interested in that

A bunch of us get together to play ultimate frisbee a couple of Saturdays a month in Shilin. Send me a p.m. with your e-mail, and I’ll put you on our mailing list.
