When you think about the world of sports, there are going to be games that require teammates, and then there are the individual competitions that have a social element to them. Which begs the question, which sports have the most socially inclusive?
There are going to be games that can be participated in individually but are better in groups, and we will also be covering a pair of competitions that will require the participation of all your friends, Greek life, or dorm roommates in these semi-party sports. This article is going to speak about three different sporting options that will benefit a person both physically and socially.
Badminton is an easy-to-learn, set-up-and-play sport that can provide an activity to play during a Bar-B-Que or a day in the park with friends. Then again, for those living in dorms or Greek houses as an RA, this can be ice-breaking activities to get the students out of their rooms and socially interact with one another. Games can be set up as one v one, doubles, and up to eight players in a single game, but there can be competitions between rotating teams. Even bracket tournaments can be created for events and company-wide team-building needs, and this is one of those games that can be played just about anywhere there is an open space.
The sport invented in Scotland has become a worldwide hit, and this, of course, is one of those games that a person can play alone, but having a foursome to be a part of will provide a better experience. As the game moves into the future, evolutions in the club technology and other gadgetry will make it all the more inclusive, do not be surprised when a film crew shows up on your local course.
To add to the game’s social element, following the completion of eighteen, there will be the option to sit down in the clubhouse and unwind with fellow golfers and friends. There will also be local pros to interact with that will have expert knowledge of the game but also provide lessons that will create confidence that will lead to a more fit mind and body.
Recreation Team Sports
The idea behind team sports is to come together as a group of athletic individuals and play a game versus another set of players doing the same thing. There are going to be different places offering these organized sporting activities, such as the city recreation centers or part of the campuses’ student recreation programs. The most notable sports offered will be Basketball, Adult (soft toss) Softball, Soccer, and, depending on the area, many other sporting options.
There are only so many sports that involve a certain amount of socialization; in order to compete, an athlete must interact with another person at some level. Keep an eye out for new sports, like TeqBall, which holds massive worldwide social events for competitors and fans alike.
