5 Sports You Must Try This Summer

By Dr. Nikita Toshi +2 more

The summer season is here and so are your long summer holidays. One of the best ways to take advantage of this season after springing out of winter hibernation is through summer sports. From beginner to challenging, there are a variety of sports to choose from. Sports don’t require you to be an athlete to enjoy them. If you don’t prefer organised sports, you can simply head out and have fun with your friends. Nevertheless, if you want to explore your inner athlete, here are 5 fun summer sports you should give a try:


1. Swimming

The pool is a great place to get active during the summer, especially if you can’t bear the thought of sweating on land during the hottest days. The summer is the best time to practice swimming whether you are competitive, exercising or just having fun. Jump into a pool or head to the beach to practice. But don’t forget to wear your water-resistant sunscreen.

2. Surfing:

 Besides being active and addictive, surfing has inspired a variety of new water sports that anyone can try. Have fun exercising while having fun at the beach, where you can paddle, ride waves and cool off in the water. Mastering surfing takes some time. Even though you have to balance and be patient, it pays off to fall into the water a few times. The best way to enjoy the beach is to ride the waves like a pro. 

There is nothing better than going for a swim during the sweltering hot summer. For kids who have never swum before, there is a bit of a learning curve but there are plenty of options for swimming lessons out there to make the process easier. Swimming is not only fun, but it’s an invaluable skill that kids are sure to use throughout their lives.

3. Beach Volleyball

Beach volleyball on the beach: what could be better? Beach volleyball is a fun summer sport that requires good focus and teamwork, whether you sign up for a recreational league or a competitive team. You don’t need much skill to start playing the game and it is easy to understand. Once you’ve played for about an hour, you should have mastered how to lift, push and smash the ball.

4. Cricket

It’s time for you to dust the dirt off your old bats and remind yourself of your childhood days. Get outside for a cricket match with your friends. Wear your sunscreen (physical) and hats to protect you from the sun. cricket players must wear all kinds of padding and protection when playing with real cricket balls, which can be extremely uncomfortable in the heat, you can avoid it by playing with a tennis ball instead. 

5. Cycling: 

Set out on your bicycles to explore the beautiful sights of your neighbourhood and nearby hidden gems. The sport of cycling has long been considered one of the best for fixing posture and maintaining body fat. Join your friends for a race or enjoy a ride around the neighbourhood. Choose the early morning or evening hours to avoid harsh sunlight. 

Hydration is very important during sports, especially during summers, it helps regulate body temperature and lubricate joints, the longer and more intense you play, the more important it is to drink the right kind and amount of fluids.

Not a fan of Sports? Here’s something for you:

Not all of us like the idea of sports or don’t prefer getting all sweaty in this heat. If you’re that person, you can keep yourself active and still enjoy the summer. Set out for walks or head out on a hike with your friends and family. Brisk Walking for 20 minutes a day is known to reduce heart diseases, walking regularly can make you more energetic and help you focus on work better. 

Indoor games like table tennis, badminton, chess, carrom etc. can be a good choice on sunny days.

Keep in mind:

While playing sports in summer, it is extremely important to stay hydrated and consume plenty of water. Sweating robs people of nutrients, electrolytes and moisture, causing their bodies to dry up and feel fatigued. You can replenish your body’s hydration by drinking plenty of water, juices and energy drinks, which keep you looking and feeling fit. keep your bottles with you and keep drinking water every half an hour. Staying hydrated during the summer is essential to keeping fit.
