Sports and gam e s popular in England

— What would you say are the most popular games in England today?

— Well, I suppose football, that is, soccer, racket and cricket.

— What are the other outdoor games?

— Oh, there's tennis, hockey, golf, and so on. Tennis is played all the, year round—on

hard courts or grass courts in summer, and on hard or covered courts in winter.

— What about horse-racing?

I should say that is one of the most popular sports in Great Britain. Then there are, of course,

walking-races, running, swimming and boxing.

— I've been told that there are no winter sports in England.

— Well, you see; the English winter isn't very severe as a rule and we don't often have the

chance of, skiing, skating or tobogganing, but winter is the great time for hunting, provided

the ground is not too hard.

— Is there any golf to be had near London?

— Oh, yes, any amount. There are dozensof good golf-links within an hour/or so of London.

You ought to join a golf club if you're keen on the game.

— I think I shall if I get the chance. What about indoor games?

— Well, there's chess, billiards, cards, table tennis... By the, way, do you play billiards?

— Well, but of 'course, I'm not a professional or a champion, justan ordinary amateur and not a

very good one at that.
