Have a lot of free time but you’re constantly bored? Then why not try out a sport?

Sports are a great way to spend your free time. They have a lot of benefits: not only are they a lot of fun, improve motor skills, and relieve stress, but they’re also a great way to make friends and find a community of enthusiasts.

Perhaps the best part is that with enough practice, you might even add it to your belt of life skills and compete in national (and maybe even international) tournaments.

They can be challenging at first, but getting the hang of them is actually pretty quick. Here are a few that you can try out in Singapore right now:

1. Ultimate Frisbee
If throwing around a plastic disk with a few friends sounds like fun for you, you’ll love this sport for sure – Frisbee involves a lot of running and launching yourself into the air to catch passes.

It also has a lot of perks: there’s no referee, non-contact, and most of all unisex, which means everyone can play it. Some organizations even invite beginners free of charge, which makes it all the more beginner friendly for those who would like to try something new.

2. Archery
Though still quite uncommon in Singapore, archery is starting to gain quite a bit of footing. This sport is a great way to improve your concentration and arm strength, with many different clubs offering to teach it to beginners and provide you with a set of bow and arrow to get you started.

3. Rowing
If you’ve experienced the thrill of kayaking before while on vacation and want to do it again, there are classes that you can enroll in in Singapore that teach will teach you the basics of competitively rowing a boat.
On the other hand, if the idea sounds silly to you: don’t be fooled. This sport is included in the Olympic roster and professional dragon boat athletes have developed biceps and shoulders from this sport.

4. Running
You might have had to a few times to get to class on time or to make it to the MRT, but chances are you’ve never really had to run too much in your life. Or, you might have even skipped leg day a few days too often.
But this is the perfect sport for you if you’re particular about looking for a sport that doesn’t need a lot of equipment. It’s also great cardio, and the best part is that you can even do it by yourself with a pair of good running shoes and proper clothes.

Of course, these are not the only sports available – there are more just waiting for you to pick up. So what are you waiting for? Enroll in a class now!
