Jill: I am sorry to have kept you waiting, Harry!
Harry: Don’t mention it. Where shall we go?
Jill: I haven’t had time to think it over. It’s up to you to decide.
Harry: Then I suggest we should go to the tennis court and play a game of tennis.
Jill: I’ve never played tennis but I know you are good at it. How old were you when you began to play tennis?
Harry: Let me think… I was about six years old when I started playing tennis. Since that time tennis has been my hobby.
Jill: I hear tennis is very popular in Great Britain.
Harry: Oh, yes. Tennis is played all the year round — on hard courts or grass courts in summer, and on hard or covered courts in winter.
Jill: What other outdoor games are popular in Great Britain?
Harry: Golf, football and cricket.
Jill: What about horse racing?
Harry: Lots of people in Great Britain are fond of it. Then comes swimming and boxing. Do you like swimming?
Jill: Rather. But when I was a little child I was afraid of water. Once I fell into the swimming pool and almost drowned. It took my father a lot of time and patience to teach me to swim. And I hate boxing. It’s such a rude kind of sport. And what do you think of it?
Harry: I don’t like it either. By the way, have you got any hobbies?
Jill: Guess. You are allowed three guesses.
Harry: Water polo?
Harry: Horse racing?
Jill: By no means. I am fond of collecting shoes. I have got a very good collection of shoes for running, jumping, dancing, walking. Casual shoes, shoes for parties… Care to see it?
Harry: Sorry, and what about tennis?
Jill: I am looking forward to seeing it. But, Harry, I have no tennis shoes in my collection. Maybe we’ll drop to a sports shop first?
