    Foot Golf

    I've just found out about this, looks like good fun. Anyone here played it? Also, how do they convince golf clubs to tear up their putting greens?
  2. So the 2018 Winter Olympics is on their way and since it is a big event after all I thought it should have it's own thread. I'm sure our fellow Norwegian Villa fans will enjoy it . Opening ceremony happening now in the £80 m stadium built specifically for this and the closing ceremony(and nothing else) Will be torn down after the Olympics... Anyway the mixed Curling competition is on it's way and here is some American bloke who looks like a plumber Not Sure if there already is a thread, if so please merge or delete.
  3. OK, another off topic sport thread. Who's into either of them? Are you heading away this year? Where to? Who actually understands skiers vs snowboarders? What's been your best trip? Where's your favourite place? I've been snowboarding for 12 years and absolutely love it. Got my trip planned for this year and already can't wait...
  4. Where to start? Massive changes on and off the track this season. We have a new owner for a start. Gone is Bernie Ecclestone after 40 years in the sport, and in come the Americans. Specifically Liberty Media. They purchased Formula One from CVC Capital Partners and are expected to adopt a model similar to that in the NFL & MLB where teams are entitled to purchase a stake in the sport. On the track Let's start visually. The 2017 cars will be much different to the 2016 cars. This article goes into more detail around the technical design changes.
  5. announced this morning that the Birmingham bid for the games is the preferred bid for the UK, beating Liverpool (which surprised me if im honest) theres a bit more work to do in terms of feasability and cost plans etc before i think the government has a vote at the end of the month to see if they'll approve the £500m cost and formally back the bid, means it will be brum or Kuala Lumpur Brums bid also included some sort of urban street game festival thing (3x3 basketball in victoria square as an event) and an international business exhibition the city is about to boom, will post more
  6. Sorry, couldn't see a thread for this anywhere? Anyone paying the PPV to watch it? I know it's a bit of a spectacle but can't shake the feeling that McGregor is gonna win!
  7. There is nothing in sport like a Lions tour (I was on the tour in 2001 and it was breath taking) and the 2017 New Zealand tour is just days away from kick off. I can't bloody wait.... so here is the thread for all the highs, lows, discussions and general ribbing of our Welshies come on fella's I know you are out there.
  8. Thursday looks like a belter and Apples Jade can be had at 5/1 in the 3.25 . She's placing at the very least . As for the National , I have no idea other than Cause of Causes . Tips etc ...
  9. I know we have a thread on 'Gambling' but felt this would be an on going thread that deserved it's own. A place for everything horse racing for the NH fans amongst us, Tips, Info anything. So with the NH season firmly underway we witness the Showcase meeting at Cheltenham this weekend with a lot of promising novice hurdlers & chasers. Old Guard is one to keep an eye on this season from the Paul Nichols yard making his transition from hurdles to chases.
  10. Starts tomorrow night, which for me, is the true beginning of Christmas ! I know there are a handful of darts fans on here so feel free to talk arras for the next few weeks . I have put £50 e/w on Lewis @ 33/1 which is a ridiculous price IMO . How on earth Taylor is 9/1 is beyond me.
  11. Can't see a thread... just watched firth smash the WR and win gold in the backstroke 200m, absolutely brilliant, I'll be honest and say I still get the lingering question that I'm looking at her seeing that it's S14 and not knowing what's going on but the buzz from watching her compared to watching mo is no different think we've won 5 golds on the opening day... Been reading a lot about it in I paper all week, we really do sound like world leaders, our support of the games seems to blow everyone else out of the water, even the yanks, saw NBC are putting the majority of the games
  12. Not much else on with the international break, this is worth watching if anyone is bored today. Throw in is at 3:30pm(coverage starts earlier obviously) and the teams are Kilkenny and Tipperary. Kilkenny win almost every year, Tipperary win most years they don't, nobody really likes either of them but it should be a cracking game of hurling played in front of 83,500 people. It could also be the last game of hurling shown on Sky as the TV rights are up for renegotiation once again.
  13. Considering the amount of potential talking points so far, I'm surprised there isn't an existing thread for the summer games. Before we even talk about medal hopes, we have health issues with Zika, the Russian doping and subsequent weak punishment plus apparently now the athlete's accommodation is not fit for purpose. The troubled Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games have arrived at their first major crisis, less than two weeks before the opening ceremony. The Australian Olympic Committee confirmed on Sunday evening that the athletes' village has been deemed uninhabitable in the short t
  14. The squad has been announced for this summer's tour. Including an injured Tuilagi is an interesting call but really glad Slade and Daly are in the squad. Guessing Ashton's England career is officially over. Hopefully we can have a successful and entertaining tour.
  15. Apologies if I forgot an obvious sport or didn't list a worthy one...(For comedy's sake, feel free to file a grievance here). Otherwise, on the tin, and whatnot...

  16. Didn't see a thread for this, (I did search, promise!) so thought I'd start one up. Is anyone going to any games? I'm going to a couple, one at VP, Australia v Uruguay and one at the Millennium Stadium for New Zealand v Georgia. Both games should be hammerings, but I'm really looking forward to seeing The Haka, (and take part in general debauchery in Cardiff after!) I much prefer watching England rugby matches than I do England football matches, so hopefully the whole country will get involved in the World Cup atmosphere!
  17. Just around the corner sports fans, starting this Tuesday 16th for 5 days! Anybody going? My Ante post NAPS as follows. Night Of Thunder Gleneagles Sole Power Free Eagle King Of Rooks Integral Ivawood Found Hootenanny Telescope Forgotten Rules

    Many darts fans on here? Great to see Gary Anderson win the Worlds last month. A great player and nice to see him do it on the biggest stage. Premier League starts tonight anyway: Dave Chisnall v Peter Wright Raymond van Barneveld v Adrian Lewis Kim Huybrechts v Michael van Gerwen Gary Anderson v Phil Taylor Stephen Bunting v James Wade MVG tough to stop in this short format, marginal favourite over Anderson for me. Taylor will be in the final four at the end of the season no matter how poorly he's doing recently.
  19. Did anyone see what happened in the Super League grand final yesterday? click to watch Disgusting behaviour, I don't follow rugby league so I don't know about the precedents but he must surely get a very long ban?! Maybe the first punch, whilst wrong, was a heat of the moment snap but the second is absolutely outrageous.
  20. So, McGinley has picked his 3 wildcards: Poults Westwood Gallagher I think Westy can consider himself very lucky to be there, and Donald extremely unlucky. Luke is a top player, and ahead of both Poulter and Westy in the rankings. I'd have had Luke in ahead of Westy. Poults simply had to be there for his energy and enthusiasm. Full team: Rory Mac Henrik Stenny Victor Dubuisson Jamie Donaldson (from my home town of Macclesfield!) Thomas Björn Sergio Garcia Martin Kaymer Graeme McDowell Justin Rose quite a strong team that, though the states look strong too. The
  21. Opening ceremony, discuss. Looking forward to seeing Rod Stewart and Mel Gibson
  22. It's the new year so it's a new thread What do we know of the new F1 season so far? Well we've lost the HRT team so there'll be 11 teams on the grid this year. As of right now, 3 rookies with the potential for a 4th. Valtteri Bottas at Williams. Esteban Gutierrez at Sauber and Max Chilton at Marussia. The 4th might be Jules Bianchi at Force India but it mightn't be. Still 3 seats available although one of those will be Paul di Resta at Force India. The other 2 are the second Force India seat and the second seat at Caterham alongside Charles Pic. Currently 19 races with a place holder for
  23. Hi All,I'm moving to Birmingham from Dublin in the next month. Can anyone recommend some golf clubs in the west midlands to me. I'd say price is the biggest factor I wouldn't be too keen on paying more than £700 for membership. Also if anyone knows of any clubs that have fees for under 30's that would be great.Thanks,
  24. 54 days away but who's counting eh? The cars will start to get rolled out soon. Can Ferrari and McLaren bridge the gap to Red Bull? Can Mercedes join the party? Kimi Raikkonen is back so will Renault join the party? The Hulk is back. Grosjean is back. Along with Grosjean we have 2 new Frenchmen on the grid. We have a Senna in a Williams Renault, 18 years on. 3 teams have changed their names. We already have a technical regulation controversy (reactive ride height) so at least it's consistent. We have a 20 race calendar for the first time in the sport's history. Discuss !!
