6 Indoor Sports To Play At Home
Being at home doesn't mean you cannot play any sports. These 6 will change your mind.
1. Hula Hoop
Not just a hoop around the waist; it requires a great deal of skill to stay mobile enough to keep the hoop in the air. Besides being a fun sport for every age group, it also works on strengthening the core of the body. How's that for double duty?
2. Table Tennis
Absolutely any table or bench in your home can be turned into one that's fit for a table tennis tournament. The double player game puts speed and reflexes to the test while also sharpening those skills.
A sport like darts can practically be counted as a party game because of how enjoyable it can be. It requires precision but not much other effort and can be played by multiple people on a larger scale even as a team game.
Here's one for the brainiacs! Completely a game of skill and strategy, chess involves no physical activity but that doesn't count the beads of sweat that will form on your forehead when waiting for your partner's moves.
Rising to popularity with the TV show Friends, foosball turns soccer into a miniature sized version and tests the speed of 2 players to score goals.
There's so much more to carrom than what meets the eye. It may look simplistic but the 4 player game is all about strategy and just the right strength to fill the pockets with coins.
