Special things/sports in your country?

Around the world, favourite beach activities include sunbathing, swimming and sandcastle building.

But in Israel, matkot - an extreme game of bat and ball - dominates the coastline.

The goal is for two players to hit a small rubber ball with a racket as many times as possible, without dropping the ball.





what special things & activities do you have in the beach or snow?

Hug it out as long as it takes, people

I would love to have a swimming race at the Dead Sea in Israel.

I was being sardonic. It's impossible to swim with any sense of acceleration in the Dead Sea because of the mineral/salt density, as you would probably know. Nonetheless, I am jealous you live in a country that has such a wonderful destination.

We've got no picturesque scenery in North Korea. Well, some nice 1930s Nazi Germany-like infrastructure, but that's about it.

Re: Special things/sports in your country?

Beach tennis is getting very popular around here, but it's an official sport, with a federation and everything, so i guess it isn't that unusual.

The more unusual i found out lately is the speedmington, which i didn't know it existed, but now is played in parks an beaches.

There are many vids in youtube about the sport
