Hi,

I don't want to gamble, because I know I'll get addicted, don't have the money etc. However, I'd like to 'test' my knowledge of tennis (and maybe other sports) by betting on matches. I wonder if you guys know any website where you can bet for maybe 'playing coins' or something. Or you get some free money to start with (that way I can play until I go broke) or playmoney.
I hope you understand what I mean, maybe it doesn't exist, but maybe someone can help me, thanks!

Joeri

You can start with the ATP bracket challenge. It is not betting but it is fun.

You will have to wait for Rome draw to be announced though.

yeah, i've wondered the same thing (even though i do have a cash betting account, which i seldom use)........ lots of poker sites have play money tables, why not play money sports betting? would get new players comfortable so they could then open real money account. and tracking your pretend bets on paper (an alternative) is cumbersome.

Betting without money is like... <adult themed activities> without... :)

The ATP Bracket Challenge and Fantasy leagues are humbling experiences.... the more you think you know the worse you do - might let my lady friend pick for me using scientific data like 'cutest', 'best legs', etc...I like this year's rules in the Fantasy league about only using players a certain # of times - should make it more interesting and possible to make up ground.

let me know before the match starts somehow if you really want to...ive never done anything like this so I want to discuss it before anything is final

last call to confirm the bet...i'll still take it if you confirm during the first set when they are on serve....after that though, bets are off
