Looking for a (team) sport to take up

Post by AnnaTh » Tue, 07 Nov 2006 12:09 pm

Hi all

My husband and I have been in Singapore for about 7 weeks now, and I'm starting to feel like I need to get active. I've never regularly played a team sport before, but after getting into some World Cup inspired 5-a-side football over ther summer in Europe, I'm inspired! Also being new in Singapore it would be a great chance to meet new people.

So I'd appreciate any suggestions or information anyone might have on what I could do about finding the right sport and people (ladies or mixed) to play with who'd welcome a newbie. I did enjoy the football and I'm a big fan of rugby union and wouldn't mind giving touch rugby a go, although having said that I am really keen to find out about any team sport opportunities at all out there.

Cheers!

AnnaTh,

I am another fan of football (World Cup) too. I like playing football, being goalie. I work fulltime so weekday playing will be difficult.

It's water sport, isn't it.... I am not so familiar . They have "training" side but impossible to get to :( . How about we consider playing like Hamz1978 suggested?

do you mean you couldnt access 'training' session? that's weird, since i tried just now and i could.

there are 12-20 paddlers on a boat, depends it's a short or long boat. we just passed a big race on Boat Quay, so it's a good time to join - even tho we might have to take a break due to lots of members would be on holiday. the parties wont stop tho! you could always go to 'forum' session to see what we are up to!

re: http://www.gaelicdragons.org/

FYI, the problem is with the link within the text (it points to the non-existing http://www.gaelicdragons.org/Training).

The button at the top of the page works fine.

Anyway, the sport looks like fun, I hope to join in sometime soon.
