Shanghai Sports Activities A - Z :
Expat guide on sport courses and classes


Introduction

football in Shanghai

Maybe because the temptation to go out to eat and drink every night is so great that westerners rely so heavily on sport as a way to create a healthy balance in their lives. And, in general, it's fair to say that Shanghai expats are a pretty active bunch.

You will be spoilt for choice of high quality sports facilities in Shanghai, both private and public, and you will never be short of people with whom to share your passion.

Make sure you try some new activities too - here is your long-awaited chance to learn martial arts from genuine Chinese masters or try your hand in a team of Dragon Boat racers.

Sports offers the greatest opportunity to enjoy yourself, make new friends from all over the world and stay fit and healthy. As you will see from the listings below, anything can be done here. And - parents who have let them selves go a bit, take note - with affordable childcare there is no excuse for not getting out there and getting involved!

Golf/Clubs

Shanghai may be regaining her capitalist veneer, but the lifestyle clubs that were anathema to the hard-core Communist regime are slow to make a comeback. Although there are persistent rumors about clubs making a comeback on various locations on the Bund, the American Club remains the only real lifestyle club in Shanghai, and it is really a town club, with no swimming pool or facilities for children.

Golf clubs, however, have caught on, in part spearheaded by expatriate Western and Japanese population, but now a firm favorite among yuppie Chinese as well. Shanghai Links, Tomson Villas and Rodin Garden Villas, expatriate housing communities, are located around golf courses.

There are about a dozen golf clubs in Shanghai, many of which permit non-members to play for a fee. Even the membership golf clubs often have arrangements with hotels and apartment complexes, so check to see if yours has one.

Golf clubs are located between 20 minutes’ and 1 hour’s drive from downtown Shanghai, and memberships cost from between US$2,000 to US$20,000.Shanghai’s nicest golf club is probably the Fuchun Resort, located outside of Hangzhou (about a 2- 21/2 hour drive from Shanghai).

See also the Expatriate Web Sites for possible transfer of memberships.
