Football/Soccer In Taipei

Postby nannsavage » 22 May 2007, 12:32

I would like to organize some pick up soccer over the summer. Anyone interested? 6pm at Da'an Tuesdays and Thursdays and possibly for a kick around sometime on the weekend that suits all. I'm open for suggestions.

May I ask what pick up soccer is?

People show up and play. If you have 12 people it is 6 vs 6, if you have 20 people it is 10 vs. 10. However many people show up can play and people can come and go as they please.

So "pick up" refers to how many people are playing?

Stop giving the poor lad such a hard time Mr. Stu.
If you seriously don't know, "pick up" just means it's unorganized.
Whoever shows up, plays.
It's just for fun and exercise, and it's non-competitive.

I'd never heard the term "pick-up soccer" before either. We just call it a "kick-about".

I'd be interested, nannsavage. Does Da'an have lights? Meeting at 6pm poses a couple of problems - fading light and the fact that many people who may well be interested are teachers and therefore working at that time. Failing that though, a weekend game sounds good. In a Taiwanese summer it's not going to be the fastest-paced game, but that better suits my measured, cultured playing style. :wink:

Seriously, I wasn't taking the piss. I thought pick up soccer might mean you could pick the ball up and run with it or something.

No lights at Da'an. As it heads into summer it shouldn't start to get dark until 7ish (I think). That's an hour or so of playing, maybe more for the troopers that want to play into dusk. Please correct me if I am wrong... If you know of anywhere that has lights I'd be interested....

Pick up I think is a North American term...

I'd be interested if I can arrange my schedule to suit..

funnily enuff there is already a team in Taipei called Da'an Park. so-named for the obvious reason that they too started out playing "pick-up" "soccer" in Da'an park......

pick-up has something to do with the fact you pick teams before you begin I guess........
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
