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
What about those Game Club guys? They play chess and stuff on a Sunday.
do you think that they will mind me just rolling on up and laying the boot in while they are playing chess?
Try a boxing club. You don’t need to speak chinese to box.
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
What happened to the Taipei Baboons after their 2002 Bali experience? Maybe you could go join the local rugby team.
You can’t legally kick or punch in Rugby. Get yourself an xbox or ps2.
got a ps2…
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
