Uncommon Sports for kids

Postby cimman » Thu Mar 17, 2011 2:56 pm

based on the topics on this forum, it seems that swimming is the most common sports around here in Singapore, followed by badminton, table tennis, tennis.

Has no body tried other sports? ie. billiards, water sking, etc...
I've seen one or two threads on rollerblading and bowling, but nothing on billiards or water sking or even water polo.

My son has been fencing since he was in P1.

Fencing was unusual then, but it's getting more popular; the Sports School will be opening a Fencing Academy from next year on.

I guess golf is considered uncommon. I don't really see parents discussing golf in the forum. Some schools have it as a CCA though, so it is getting some recognition.
