NATIONAL SPORTS OF GREAT BRITAIN Many kinds of sport originated from England. The English have a proverb, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". They do not think that play is more important than work; they think that Jack will do his work better if he plays as well. so he is encouraged to do both. Association football, or soccer is one of the most popular games in the British Isles played from late August until the beginning of May. In summer the English national sport is cricket. When the English say: "that's not cricket" it means "that's not fair", "to play the game" means "to be fair". Golf is Scotland's chief contribution to British sport. It is worth noting here an interesting feature of sporting life in Britain, namely, its frequently close connections with social class of the players or spectators except where a game may be said to be a "national" sport. This is the case with cricket in England which is played and watched by all classes. This is true of golf, which is everywhere in the British Isles a middle-class activity. Rugby Union. the amateur variety of Rugby football, is the Welsh national sport played by all sections of society whereas, elsewhere, it too is a game for the middle classes. Association football is a working-class sport as are boxing, wrestling, snooker, darts, and dog-racing. As far as fishing is concerned it is a sport where what is caught determines the class of a fisherman.

Olympic Club history:
The San Francisco Olympic Club
The Club's Maurice McLoughlin was the first successful practitioner of the "Big Game" of serve and volley in tennis, and he won the U.S. Singles Championship in 1912 and 1913. He was succeeded by his Clubmate, William "Little bill" Johnston, who won the title in 1915 and '19, as well as Wimbledon in 1923. The Olympic Club's Cornelius Warmendam in 1942 became the first pole vaulter to clear 15 feet. Its Hank Luisetti changed basketball for all time by pioneering the one-hand shot in the 1930s. Between 1929 and 1950, the Club won six AAU championships in track and field. It has won 12 U.S. Open titles and three Masters championships in water polo. And it has won eight U.S. Masters and four World Masters championships in swimming. Since 1920 its handball players have consistently achieved national prominence, winning national championships time and again. At its gorgeous Lakeside country Club overlooking the Pacific Ocean the OC today boasts of two championship-quality golf courses, as well as a nine-hole par three spread. The premier Lakeside course has been the site of four U.S. Open championships-in 1955, 1966, 1987 and 1998.
More than 6000 members - men and women, juveniles and juniors - now enjoy a vast variety of sports in both the downtown Clubhouse on Post Street and at Lakeside that range from Swimming, Handball, Squash and Basketball to Golf, Tennis, Rugby and Soccer. The original promise has been kept, but if they somehow were alive today those original 23 members would most likely be astonished by what they would see a couple of centuries later. Then again, maybe they wouldn't be, for they were all dreamers.

    Saturday June 12, 2004 NEWS ABOUT SQUASH RULES CLUBS ... ABOUT US
    PRESS RELEASE "History of Squash" Squash was invented in Harrow school around 1830, when the pupils discovered that a punctured Rackets ball, which "squashed" on impact with the wall, produced a game with a greater variety of shots and required much more effort on the part of the players, who could not simply wait for the ball to bounce back to them as with Rackets. The variant proved popular and in 1864 the first four Squash courts were constructed at the school and Squash was officially founded as a sport in its own right. In those early days Squash, as with all other sports, was without any form of international standardisation and it was inevitable that slight variations in the way it was played, and the equipment used, would occur. Luckily only two main streams of activity followed, one in England with its 21 feet wide courts and "soft" ball and the other in North America, with its 18.5 feet wide courts and "hard" ball and with both courts having the same length of 32 feet the universality of Squash was not seriously challenged. We will look at these two branches separately and also at the way in which Squash spread to almost every nation in the world. EARLY DAYS IN ENGLAND The first recorded reference to "Squash", other than in Harrow school, appeared in 1890 in the English book "The Badminton Library of Sports and Pastimes" written by the Duke of Beaufort. Eustace Miles, a world champion at both Tennis and Rackets, wrote the first book on Squash in 1901; stating that the sport was enjoyed by thousands of players in various parts of the world. By that time there were courts in schools and universities in England and some also in private houses. The first professional Squash Championship was held in 1920 in England, when C.R. Read (Queens Club) beat A.W.B. Johnson (RAC Club).

    BBC News Online
    Games will be shorter - and rallies more intense The world's best squash players are using a new scoring system this week in a move aimed at making the game more exciting.
    The number of points needed to win a game has been cut by almost a third - from 15 to 11 - akin to a football match being hacked back to 60 minutes, or the men's final at Wimbledon being played as the best-of-three-sets. It's the latest tactic in the struggle to develop by a sport that has often been seen as more fun to play than to watch. Critics say the change has been rushed in without proper consultation and will only confuse the public. But many players and officials believe it is one of the most exciting times to be involved in the sport and that the latest change to the 150-year-old game will be a welcome boost.

This DVD has some pretty amazing features I've never seen before. Stuff like, at any time while you're watching the competition, you press a cursor key and get a bio of the person on the screen. There are some very cool multi-angle things on the disc, too. It lets you check out the exhibition pieces from different angles. The other discs in the set are equally impressive. I recommend this set if for no other reason than you get to show off to your friends why DVD is so cool! 1998 Olympic Skating Competition Highlights I am sorry for evaluation to have become slow. Goods arrived safely. I am very much satisfied. Thank you very much. a great video for figure skating This a great video for figure skating. It runs about 80 minutes. It features the battle for gold between Michelle Kwan and Tara Lipinski - one of the most hotly contested figure skating competitions in the Olympic History. Also this video shows off the incredible talents of Eldredge, Stojko, Kulik... in the Men's competitions. The DVD of the 'Exhibition Highlights' also is a very good video.

    Queen Without a Country
    In this absorbing novel, Rachel Bard brings to life a distant era and sheds new light on a queen almost ignored by history. Berengaria, the Basque princess who married Richard the Lionheart, King of England, is faced with an indifferent husband, an imperious mother-in-law, and the ruthless power players of 13th century Europe . As Richard’s wife, then widow, she struggles to make her way in a world dominated by men. Determined and resourceful, she eventually wins respect, honor—and the love of a good man. The meticulously researched story takes the reader across the whole turbulent landscape of Berengaria’s world: from Spain to Sicily Cyprus , the Holy Land France , and England —the country where she was queen, but was never allowed to visit.
