Bored of playing the real thing? Why not try the classic mini version of football - table football. I love my local table in Park Odynca nearby. The funny thing is that you you have to bring your own ball (a squash ball is good enough) or play with a stone if you want. The table is very good quality (sturdy and weatherproof) and the players have got real character as you can see from the picture. Unfortunately, as you can also see, it wasn't really the weather for playing it.
If you travel around the city enough you will inevitably end up spotting what look like giant inflatable aircraft hangars. These are, in fact, tennis courts. To overcome the harsh winters they have invented these covered areas for all year-round play. You can fit four courts under one roof and the surface is usually clay. We play next to the venue for the Warsaw Open at the Warszawianka Sports Centre and at Gwardia Stadium.
