well, the people following tennis here are a real minority.
tennis is not a core sport, soccer(even though we suck) is the most popular.
the sports that we are good at are swimming, ping pong, bowling. no tennis

ping pong over tennis?
thats a bid odd isnt it?

have no clue man. Canadian events are always jampacked, but i don't think that's a high % of all of us, or even the people in my city as a matter of fact. but here in Canada, many sports come before tennis, i think even curling :rolleyes:

Tennis is kinda popular in my city. We have good number of courts for it's size.
We also hold tourneys at Wittenberg University 12 and under's. It is a big tourney in Ohio or Mid-West.
Friends of mine said that Hingis,Anna and lots of Pro's have played in my hometown.
I forgot what they call it? 12 and under Regional or something like that..

Tennis is quite popular here, more than I thought it would be (on my college campus)...I see ppl carrying rackets in the backpack or carrying it along with their hands quite often. The courts that we have are usually full...which makes it a bitch for me and my buddy of course...

In the last 30 years tennis has not been showed on TV. THere is possible to buy raquets in some shops, but shoes is difficult to find.
there are about 20 000 registered players in Norway.
