Are there any basketball courts, indoor or outdoor? How is it trying to find any kind of pickup games? What other sports are popular?
i usually play at my old school...we sometimes get random farangs, and some schools are cool with it some arent. i cant remember but i think there might be a few public bball courts in BKK - again, dont quote me. if you can get onto a court a ta a school, the quality of the players will vary. at big international schools like ISB there will likely be some very talented players, though as a whole, players will lack the fundamentals that guys from the states will have. those that do play take it as seriously as they can there though, so it can get quite competitive.
dont think that helps, but hey, i tried
Your post helped more than you think. It didn't come to mind that there would be Thai's playing instead of Americans. Message board culture shock I guess
KJS, what were your experiences with the 'politics' on the court? Does the language barrier matter that much?
Is tennis popular at all?
