A Fantastic New Idea
Eighty years ago, Mr. Goode of Putney, South London, went to the chemist's to buy some aspirin. In the shop,
he almost forgot about his tablets as he stood looking at the pimpled rubber mat1 on the counter. It had given him a
fantastic new idea.
He paid for his aspirin and the rubber mat. Then he rushed home, cut the rubber mat to the right shape and size
and stuck it to his wooden table tennis bat2. The thin layer of rubber helped him put a very fast spin3 on the ball.
When he became the English champion, everyone started, copying him, putting rubber layer on their bats, and soon
Mr. Goode's clever idea completely changed the style and speed of table tennis.
Table tennis was first invented in England in about 1880. At first the game had several strange names: Gossima,
Whiff Whaff and Ping Pong. It wasn't until 1926 that the international Table Tennis Association was formed with
international championship and rules. One of the rules was that the rubber lining4 of the bat (Mr. Goode's invention)
couldn't be more than two millimetres thick on each side.
Answer the questions.
1. Where did Mr. Goode live?
2. Where did he see the pimpled rubber mat?
3. What did he do with rubber layer?
4. In what way did the thin layer of rubber help him?
5. What changed the style and speed of table tennis?
6. When and where was table tennis first invented?
7. How thick could the rubber lining of the bat be?
Wimbledon — As Unusual Club
People all over the world know Wimbledon as the center of lawn tennis. But most people do not know that it
was famous for another game before tennis was invented. Wimbledon is now a part of Greater London. In 1874 it was
the home of the All-England Croquet Club. The Club had been there since 1864. A lot of people played croquet in
England at that time and enjoyed it, but the national championship did not attract many spectators. So the Club had
very little money, and the members were looking for the way of getting some. 'This new game of lawn tennis seems to
have plenty of action, and people like watching it', they thought. 'Shall we allow people to play lawn tennis on some of
our beautiful croquet lawns?'
In 1875 they changed the name of the club to the 'All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club', and that is the
name that you will still find in the telephone book. Two yeas later, in 1877, Wimbledon held the first world lawn
tennis championship. There were 22 players and 200 spectators, each paid one shilling. The Club was saved.
The Club was saved because... .
a) a lot of people played croquet in England at that time and enjoyed it
b) a lot of people played lawn tennis in England at that time and enjoyed it
c) spectators bought tickets to watch the championship
The Highland Games
Scottish Highland games, at which sports (including tossing the caber, putting the weight and throwing the
hammer), dancing and piping competitions take place, attract large number of spectators from all over the world.
No one knows exactly when the men of the Highlands first gathered to wrestle, toss cabers, throw hammers, put
weights, dance and play music. The Games reflected the tough life of the early Scots. Muscle-power was their means
of livelihood1 - handling timber, lifting rocks to build houses, hunting. From such activities have developed the
contests of tossing the caber, putting the weight and throwing the hammer.
The contests of tossing the caber, putting the weight and throwing the hammer have developed because ...
a) the early Scots were very muscle-power
b) reflect activities that helped the early Scots to survive
c) these activities attract a lot of spectators

(работа с учебником)
- Now we come back to our book. We’ve read two stories, now, please, let’s read Phil’s opinion. What does he
I'd rather watch sports competitions. I can't stand those silly contests at school. To be a good sportsman doesn't
suit everyone. Many people simply like to support their favourites. What are the competitions for? Since early times
they have been held to entertain people. And if everybody takes part in competitions who will have fun? And I think
that it is much better to watch sports programmes on TV. You needn't go to a cold wet stadium, buy tickets. You can
sit in a comfortable armchair and enjoy yourself.
