Play Snowsports & Baseball Top Facilities in Kwun Tong

[10/02/12] 

Play is a two floored snowsports and baseball centre in Kwun Tong with fake ski slopes, batting cages and equipment for sale. Hong Kong isn't renowned for its space, or its sports, so walking in puts a smile on your face, particularly because there's an irrelevant mini concert stage. The manager says it's to host events but we're pretty sure they had too much space and the HK consultants were stumped by the novelty.

There are two ski slope simulators measuring 500 square feet respectively but we'd only recommend using them if you're a beginner - or if you're feeling very rusty before going to Japan itself. The key value of the facility is the shop, which is one of only a handful of places in Hong Kong where you can get a proper boot fitting. Moaning about your boots is one of the great joys of skiing, but you want a good pair all the same.

The baseball floor, meanwhile, is one of a kind - there's nothing else like it in Hong Kong. They have two full length batting cages where you can swing at a ball travelling up to 150km/h - about 500 times quicker than the average Hong Konger walks. They also have a toss ball area for beginners and other facilities for kids but you'll be pretending to be Babe Ruth. Then getting on the MTR back home.

Snow 'n' Ball.
