    Yeah when I volunteered for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014 I was assigned to the squash and table tennis tribune. Squash looked like so much fun and I would like to try it, I have no excuse really, they built squash courts for the games in the sports centre near my house. Maybe this thread will give me motivation to try it.

    crab football


    what came of the things we once believed?
    oh all lost to the depths of a hungry sea
    And now our parents are long departed
    who can finish the songs they started?

    I love table tennis, but it is never shown in the UK outside of the Olympics. I think ITV broadcast the national championships live for the first time ever last year, but it was on ITV4 and what even is ITV4, really. I don't even have that channel. I find this really disappointing, especially considering the UK invented the sport and there's some really great British talent at the moment. I always love the Olympics, because it means I can watch table tennis, along with other sports like badminton and judo, which otherwise get little to no coverage. All these broadcasters harp on about their all-encompassing sports channels which really just include football. With the recent success of the British in the last couple of Olympic Games, I think it has invigorated certain sports and inspired a lot of funding and involvement, but the results only seem to manifest every four years. So many sports featured during the Games have yearly national championships that would surely get a decent viewership. With all the channels and all the crap on TV these days, there really doesn't seem to be much diversity when it comes to sports broadcasting. At least these days sporting bodies are able to upload coverage onto YouTube.

    whatever makes them the most money i guess.

    i wish they put more field hockey on!
