Tennis (the main game these days).I am a registered tennis coach and my students are my 3 children (like to help other kids whenever I have free time), but the results are very good. In the recent Singapore national ranking (May 2013), both my boys Jie (15) and Chen (10) ranked #1 in singles in the 16U age group and 12U age group; it may be the first time two brothers ranked both national #1 at the same time in Singapore tennis history. Most recently, my daughter Tianyu (8 yrs old) has become Singapore national junior 10U singles champion in June 2014 (without losing a set). I also developed Position based Markov Decision Process (MDP) models for tennis strategy analysis in PAT verification system.
Rollerblade-Tennis. (This is an old news). I would like to promote a new combined sport, rollerblade-tennis (or inline-tennis). I believe you can have more powerful shots as you're smoothly turning into the ball and put more body weight into your shots. Of course stopping is a bit of problem, so the rule is to allow second bounce for the drop shots :-) Mixing tennis with roller blading together is a great fun!! Have a look some of my own inline tennis action shots taken in Dec 1994. I'd like to find out who else in the world is also interested in this new game. My best inline-tennis partners are my cousin Ray Young and Dr. Dave Matthews, we played in Brisbane and in Canberra back in 94-97 (we would like to claim that we invented this game --- challenge :-)).
