Go-Karting whilst not being available everywhere in the RP, there is a number of purpose made Go-Kart tracks around the RP. If not wanting to get into the serious stuff with National and International championships, Karts can be hired to "have a go”. The thrill and adrenalin rush from driving at 60mph or more with you bum only a couple of inches from the ground has to be experienced to truly understand how exciting it can be.
Off-Road - 4 Wheel Driving Judging by some serious looking 4WD vehicles about, with trick raised suspension, air intake snorkels and winches fitted to their vehicles, there are probably some enthusiastic off-road clubs in the RP.
Golf is a popular pastime for many everywhere. The Philippines offers some excellent courses at very affordable prices and the bonus of some beautiful "caddies" at some.
Tennis is fairly popular in the Philippines, and not just confined to Hotels and Resorts. Most cities and many towns can be found with courts to play on. There are Tennis Clubs to join, if you are serious about this sport.
Basketball is the national sport and you will find the "hoops" with back board in the tiniest of villages and Barangays and is extremely popular-a legacy from the US domination. You won't see many slam dunks except from the "imports,"(players from the US usually), but you will see a fast game, expertly played.
The locals will encourage you to join in and this is very much the case with Volleyball - set up on beaches in many places.
