Q: What team sports are available for females in or near to Shijiazhuang, Hebei?

I am new to China, Shijiazhuang and desperately looking for a sport club to join. I am an avid field hockey player, but I can't seem to find anything similar in this area. I'm happy to consider other sports such as netball, or badmington or basketball or soccer, but not sure where I can find a womens team for this in Shijiazhuang / Hebei. I know there are lots of expat groups closer to Shanghai where I can do all these sport, but I can't seem to find any in this area of China. Does anyone hae any suggestions or know of places I could go to?

Something you don't see much in China is sports clubs.

 

Badminton seems to be popular everywhere though as a social sport, it's easy to get into and you don't need to find and join a team to do it, just the local badminton court.

Try closer to Shanghai. The only team sport you might find where you are is taking contrived selfies at ktv, snacking, shopping and the number one sport for local girls, sleeping. Good luck and have fun.

Wolf tip #24: you are in China now. Adapt. The sports/activities you did in [insert anglo country] are unlikely to be of interest to women here.

I have a friend who does  Rugby coaching in China, and his wife is involved in all sorts of sports. They basically spend all their time going all over China doing coaching , and playing sports.

 

Sent me a pm with your wechat and I will put you in touch.

Girls are not encouraged to play sports, in fact most high school PE classes the girls just gossip and never exercise. There are sports universities in larger cities were you may find some activities.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
