English people do not play basketball, why?

US people did not play football (soccer), but later after the 1994 World Cup which was held in the US, and with the Latin American people coming in, the population of football is growing, and the US women team got the world champions too.

But for English people, they do not care for basketball, they only like football, rugby and cricket. The cricket game is very confusing or simply sissy to some point, I tried to understand the rules but got nowhere. Only Indian, Bangalese, Sri Lankans and Pakistani people enjoy it very much, but these countries are very weak as a whole in Olympics.

Basketball it a recently-invented sport. It was invented in the USA in 1891 and originally played with a football.

probably because english people aren't tall enough to play. jkjk
somehow, english people think playing basketball is not elegant (just my guess)

Yes, we often see the Chinese excel at it. Do they call it "ping pong"?

Table tennis is a game, like many other sports games popular in the world now, that has its origin from the English Isles.But few English people now play this game.

British people mainly are elegant and graceful, as we know, many people elsewhere like to speak English with the British accent. I am much amazed by the debates going on in the Westminster Abbey through BBC, there are too many high quality TV or radio hosts if judging by their accents only.

But in the football stadiums, there are so many crazy hooligan fans, they are also part of the British culture that they do not like other peoples to know about.

Perhaps there is not so much difference between the football stadia and Westminster :lol:

Btw, Westminster Abbey is a church in the Westminster area. Political debates take place in the Houses of Parliament, also in the Westminster area.

yes. it is translated from chinese. honestly, i like the chinese name more than the english one. 'table tennis' sounds ordinary. furthermore, 'ping pong' looks interesting and fun. which name do you prefer?

I agree with you Sass. I like "ping pong". It's a fun name, and it sounds like the game. So it's onomatopoeic :roll:
