Past Time Sports

An Invigorating Family Past Time: Sports Activities
If you are feeling bored,​ listless,​ and out of​ shape,​ you need a​ new past time .​
Sports activities will get your blood pumping and help you get back into shape .​
Not only will you be getting good exercise but you will be starting a​ valuable family past time .​
Sports activities are a​ great way to​ spend time with your kids .​
So get up off the​ couch,​ put down that soda,​ and get out in​ the​ yard for a​ little touch football.
If touch football is​ not for you,​ why not play a​ little kickball with your kids .​
Set up a​ diamond similar to​ a​ baseball diamond .​
Now the​ pitcher rolls a​ large soft ball,​ like a​ playground ball,​ on​ the​ ground to​ the​ batter .​
Only in​ kickball,​ the​ batter kicks the​ ball and runs to​ first base .​
Since the​ ball is​ soft,​ the​ fielding team can throw the​ ball at​ the​ runner to​ get him out .​
Since the​ kicker will almost always manage to​ kick the​ ball and foul balls are rare,​ this is​ a​ classic game to​ play with young kids and others who are not very athletic.
A fun family game that makes a​ good past time sports activity is​ tetherball .​
This rousing game can be played with one or​ two people .​
Tetherball is​ called that because the​ ball is​ on​ a​ tether - it​ is​ on​ a​ rope tied at​ the​ top of​ a​ pole .​
the​ ball hangs about hand level .​
the​ object is​ to​ hit the​ ball and make the​ rope wrap around the​ pole .​
the​ two players attempt to​ make the​ ball go different directions .​
If you have never played tetherball,​ you should give it​ a​ try .​
It is​ really fun! And it​ really gets you moving (and laughing!)
Sand volleyball may have started on​ the​ beaches,​ but many towns are now installing sand volleyball courts in​ their public parks .​
the​ littler kids can sit in​ a​ safe place and play with their sand toys while Mom,​ Dad,​ and the​ older kids hit a​ beach ball or​ volleyball back and forth over a​ net .​
the​ sand feels good on​ bare feet (but not so good inside your shoes!) the​ kids will enjoy this past time sports.
A cross between volleyball and tennis that many families enjoy is​ badminton .​
In this game,​ the​ object is​ to​ use lightweight rackets to​ volley a​ birdie back and forth over a​ net .​
the​ birdie looks like a​ little plastic funnel attached to​ a​ firm rubber ball .​
You hold the​ birdie by the​ plastic and drop it​ onto your racket to​ serve to​ the​ other team .​
Badminton moves more slowly than tennis and is​ a​ leisurely way to​ get moving with the​ kids .​
You'll get some exercise,​ though!
Kids are naturally energetic and active,​ making past time sports activities extremely attractive to​ them .​
Since parents need to​ be spending more quality time with their kids as​ well as​ needing to​ get more exercise,​ too,​ these vigorous games are a​ good idea for everyone .​
Some say that the​ family that plays together stays together .​
This could be so,​ since exercise gets positive hormones flowing in​ your mind,​ putting you and everyone else in​ a​ better mood .​
Don't get so competitive that your family past time sports cease to​ be fun .​
Just volley that ball or​ birdie for fun and exercise.
