Summer is the perfect time for sports. The sun is shining, people have time off work, and everyone is in the mood for some exercise. However, not all sports are designed for summertime. Here are the best summer sports.
Frisbee golf might not be the most well-known sport on this list, but it’s perfect for summer. It involves throwing a flying disc into a target. The rules are similar to golf (hence the name), and you can play it solo or with a group. It’s perfect for summertime because it doesn’t involve that much activity. You’re not going to be drowning in sweat at the end of a game of frisbee golf.
Most professional soccer teams take a break in the summer. But that doesn’t mean you have to. There’s nothing like meeting up at the local park and kicking a ball around for a few hours. Then when you’re tired out, you can go home, put a game on, and place a bet on Uefa 2020.
Let’s face it – football can be a bit too rough, especially if you’re not used to it. So, why not try out the no-contact version, flag football? Instead of tackling players to the ground, you have to pull a flag out of their belt to get the ball. This is a great game to play with kids and adults alike.
In many ways, tennis is the ultimate summer sport. When you think of tennis, you think of the grass courts of Wimbledon on a beautiful summer’s day. However, you can play tennis pretty much anywhere in the world. Plus, there are a bunch of different versions that are more suitable for kids.
Baseball (or rounders)
Baseball is a great summer game because it involves a lot of standing around, interspersed with short periods of intense activity. That means you aren’t going to get too exhausted or dehydrated when you’re playing. If you don’t feel like you can handle the full game, why not try rounders instead?
On a really hot summer’s day, all you want to do is get in the water. That’s why surfing is the ultimate summer sport. The water will keep you cool, and you can hang out on the beach when you’re finished. Be warned, though, it’s nowhere near as easy as it looks. You should get some lessons if you want to master it.
Skateboarding and BMXing are alternative sports that work great in the summer. You need dry weather to head to an outdoor skatepark, and you can guarantee that they’ll be teaming with like-minded people on a hot day. However, you need to accept that you’re going to get injured if you want to master either of these sports.
Golf is a lot of fun on a summer’s day. It’s called a gentleman’s sport because you can play it without breaking a sweat. That means you can head straight from the course into the clubhouse and order yourself a martini. Plus, it’s great to play with your buddies because you get to spend all day hanging out.
Cricket is popular in England, India, Australia, and a few other countries. It’s not the most global sport on this list, but it’s perfect for a summer’s day. Like baseball, cricket doesn’t involve constant activity, so you can play it in the blistering sun. Just make sure you put plenty of sunscreen on.
