What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in Soccer/Futsal, Pool/Billiards, Touch Rugby/Touch Footy, Ultimate Frisbee and Poker (and other card and board games), Basketball, Tennis and Tenpin Bowliing.

Soccer is the `beautiful` game as they say. Its the most played sport in the world so lets join in with the rest of the planet!!. I myself am a shockingly bad player nevertheless I love a good, leisurely kick around with like minded people:) We are not serious at all here, its all about having fun and teaching each other new skills and playing games. We`d really like to see some girls participate even if you have never played before. Just try!!:)

Billards/Pool - If you want a friendly pool game then you`ve hit the right spot:) All levels are welcome from beginners to advanced pool sharks. Dont be shy, you will be taught the fine art of pool mastery by our pleasant team. We`ll have regular tournaments with prizes too!!

Poker - If your here for the poker, well bring it on!!:) In Japan its just started to get popular (and we`ll make it even more popular, hahaha). Its possible to learn the basic rules in less than 15 minutes. The stratergy is what make people come back. Of course prizes will be awarded to the snakes that steal all our chips:)

Touch Rugby - After the 2015 Rugby World Cup it has been `Goromaru` fever!!. Lets keep the spirit and energy going with our games at the local park. Remember this is `touch` Rugby so you wont get hurt!! Its actually a very popular games also amongst girls in many countries. Come and try this sport for the first time in your life. Youll really like it:)

Ultimate Frisbee - Yes this is a real sport. Its played on a rectangle pitch/grassy area and teams have 7 people. Its sort of like a mix between soccer and basketball. Its super fun and we will explain the rules in details cause Japanese people have definately never played it before. Its is a hugely popular sport in America, Australia and France.

Tennis - Great sport that can be played with guys and girls. A very popular school sport. If you havent picked up a racket since then...come on over and get back in the tennis mode

Basketball - A favorite amongst guys but we have a few girls coming too.

Tenpin Bowling - A good chance to relax and wind down after work with a good dose of this.

Table Tennis - Awesome game, where often the girls have a very good chance to beat the guys:)

Thanks, for your time everyone!! Looking forward to meet you, have fun and get a bit fit,

Andy - OSAKA SPORTS EVENTS - Just for Fun team
