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 volleyball with a slightly bouncier ball, a smaller court, and the ball is allowed to hit the walls. No ceiling, and it can't hit wall on a serve. it's pretty fun
