Looking over the list of activities, I was struck by how many I would like to try and how many I haven't even heard of. Take Wallyball for instance. What the heck is Wallyball? Maybe Wallyball is my calling and I'm going to go on to become a world-class Wallyball player. Okay, maybe not, but it would be something fun to try at least.

Also, I was struck by just how fast I could earn points if I did some vigorous Scuba Diving. Unfortunately, for now since I don't own a scuba suit I'm going to have to stick to usual swimming.

Wallyball is one of the most fun sports ever! Essentially it is volleyball played in a racquetball court. You put the net up in the middle, the ball is a little different (bouncier) and you can hit it off any walls and the ceiling, except on the serve, but the rest of the rules of volleyball are still in effect. Definitely try it if you ever get the chance!
