SPORT­ING LIFE

Paradise - - Traveller -

Rise early and head down to the Bund or one of Shang­hai’s parks for morn­ing ex­er­cise, Chi­nese style. You’re wel­come to join groups prac­tis­ing tai chi and other mar­tial arts, or even ball­room danc­ing and tra­di­tional Chi­nese fan danc­ing.

Shang­hai has nu­mer­ous first-class golf cour­ses, in­clud­ing She­shan In­ter­na­tional Golf Club (288 Linyin New Road, Songjiang; she­shang­olf.com), which is scat­tered with lakes and groves of trees and has im­mac­u­late greens.

Bas­ket­ball is very pop­u­lar in China, and you can see su­per­star Yao Ming’s home team, the Shang­hai Sharks, in ac­tion at Luwan Sta­dium (128 Zhao­ji­a­bang Road, Huangpu; shang­haisharks.cn) be­tween Novem­ber and April.
