    Hehe You will still probably beat me.

    I might try and persuade my dad to play it with me this weekend, haven't played for months
    Mmm, just need to find out at some point where the tennis courts are around Imperial and whether you need to join a club or something to use them. In London though... so I reckon there's not going to be many. Most will probably be out of London so lots of travelling needed... I don't reckon there are any in Hyde Park or around there?

    If you can play golf well, then well done. I tried golf for a term and I totally sucked.

    They're going to bring golf into the olympics, so it must be a sport. Just like trampolining. :ninja:

    Haven't played tennis for ages, but I used to play it really competitively - have different racquets and shoes for different courts, enter tournaments and had a proper ranking. And it used to be fun with the other kids trying to psych you out. :giggle:

    Then I moved onto squash, then badminton - and now I haven't really picked up a racquet for a while.


    It's all about the football currently. :cool:
    I'd love to take up more sports, but I live too far away from where everyone else lives and I just end up playing with my dad or catching a train to play with everyone else :p:

    Football, can be frankly quite dangerous :p:

    Unfortunately, my halls have no tennis courts and before I applied I looked at the tennis courts on the accomodation website, and they were DISGUSTING. :p: I made a wise choice :yes:

    Doesn't help for playing tennis though but there are a lot of halls around me with squash for a £5 to rent the court for 2 people. :awesome:

    Look, hockey is running around and smacking a bit of plastic into a goal.

    Golf on the other hand is about concentration, and repetition, and judgement. There are so many variables to take into account such as distance, wind, slope of the ground etc. etc.

    It is just so much more difficult, I will concede though that it isn't particularly tiring :p:

    They do have tennis courts:

    whilst the Cobham Sports Ground offers similar but more extensive provision with the additional benefit of grass tennis courts

    There are a few intercollegiate ones with squash courts, and anyone can go in I think, it's just we don't get the reduced rate.

    Chess and calculus are both for people with oversized foreheads and no life.

    No i'm sorry, but golf is a sport - i'm not even continuing this debate
