Sports for the Summer
Sports are a good way to get exercise. They are fun and can involve exercising multiple muscles, allowing you to develop strength in a non-tedious way. Though there are many sports that are perfect for the summer, we’ve got a list of a few in our Sunset Palms Blog that we think are the sports to participate in this summer!
This sport is perfect for a summer day, as there are many outdoor tennis courts around, even at our apartment community! Tennis requires tennis rackets, a ball, and at least two people. The goal of the game is to either score an ace (serving the first ball without the opponent returning it to your side within the boundaries) or returning the ball on your opponent’s side without them being able to do so. If you have 3 other friends, it’s possible to play doubles!
A popular game around the world, soccer is played on many playing fields, from groomed soccer fields to dirt patches all over the world. All you need is a ball and you can play this great game! The rules are simple, kick the soccer ball into the opponent’s goal and prevent the opposing team from doing the same. Find any open field and you’ll be on your way to hours of fun!
Enjoy running down the length of the field and tossing the frisbee to your teammates in this competitive game! Players with the frisbee may not run with the disc, and can only advance the disc up the field by passing it to teammates. Remember that physical contact is prohibited in this game, so avoid being overly physical or you’ll end up with a foul!
