¡@¡@The rules of playing Woodball are similar to croquet, which was popular during the Tang Dynasty. And Woodball also possesses both the features of modern golf and ancient croquet; meanwhile it is an interesting, entertaining public sports activity which highlights the great importance of etiquette. Woodball was created and elaborately developed by a Taiwanese, Mr. Weng Ming-hui, in 1990. As a result of many enthusiastic people¡¦s help and cooperation, they made this sports activity known and drew people¡¦s attention.

¡@¡@And owing to their long-term efforts, they created a brand-new kind of sport worldwide. After two years of continuous experiment as well as improvement, they finally made a practical, convenient set of tools for playing woodball. With a mallet in hand, you can simply take delight in playing the sport while enjoying your conversation. Since it is a sport for people of all ages and serves both the purposes of entertainment and competition, they decided to establish an organization called Chinese Taipei Woodball Association, and they have been promoting it since then in the hope that this new sport will catch on as a modern sport.

¡@¡@Neihu District is located in the eastern area of Taipei City. It is surrounded by mountains except for its south part, which faces Keelung River. The low, central plain of the district forms an inland lake; as a result, the district is named ¡§Neihu¡¨. Its eastern part neighbors with Xizhi City, Taipei County and western part with Zhongshan District. Keelung River, loacted in the south, forms a natural bounary

among Neihu , Songshan and Nangang District while Daluntou Mountain and Chishangtian Mountain form its northern boundary with Shinlin District.

¡@¡@Neihu is adjacent to mountains and water. Scenic Bishan has a serene environment. The folk custom and practices of Neihu residents also focus on agricultural society and therefore form abundant etiquette and custom on the basis of times and seasons. In order to provide its residents with more recreational space, the City Government turned Fourteen-cent Bei into Tahu Park, a famous spot for mountain climbing and outing, and turned Tabei Lake into Bihu Park as a recreation spot for fishing, strolling and exercising.
