So you graduated college, you work in a city and your activity level has decreased significantly from your days of playing intramural sports. Even if you regularly hit the gym, it’s still not the same as getting sweaty during a competitive game. While it might be hard to coordinate schedules with your friends, there are tons of organized leagues you can join for weekly team sports. Of course, there are soccer and softball, but there are so many more. Here are five competitive team sports that are actually fun for adults to play.
Remember kickball? It’s that game you used to play in gym class that’s like baseball except you kick a big rubber ball instead of hitting a small, hard one with a bat. Sliding into home is just as fun, but kicking a rubber ball requires much less skill.
Believe it or not, bocce is kind of addictive. With an underarm throw kind of like bowling, bocce requires strategy and understanding in order to make sure your balls are in a favorable position.
Break out your rackets and grab a shuttlecock (otherwise known as a birdie) for a game of badminton. We guarantee you’ll be huffing and puffing as you run around the court.
Another gym class favorite, dodgeball is not for anyone who is unwilling to be pegged with colorful foam balls. If that sounds good to you, then you’ll be happy to know dodgeball is just as thrilling as you remember it.
Throwing a disc around is far more competitive and active than you think. Accuracy and speed are key for the catches you’ll need to secure victory.
