Top 5 Indoor Sports to Enjoy and Experience

1. Bowling – What is Bowling?

This game was originally played by the Dutch, the Germans, and the Swiss. The game became popular in the mid-1960 according to a 2011 study from White Hutchinson Leisure & Learning Group in Kansa City.  Bowling has been traced to articles found in the tomb of an Egyptian child buried in 5200 B.C. The player single game consists of 10 “frames” with each frame consisting of two chances to knock down ten pins. Once the player knocks down each pin it earns a point, while you can also score extra points by hitting “strikes” or “spares”.

2. Billiards

King Louis XI refined and popularized the game, and it swiftly spread among the French nobility. The term billiards comes from the French, root words are either “billart” which is one of the sticks, or “billie” which means ball. The goal of this game is to score more points than your opponent, reaching the agreed amount that is needed to win the game.

It’s a competitive sport in which two or more players bare-handedly throw small sharp-pointed missiles known as darts at a round target.  The Modern Dart game was invented by a carpenter from Lancashire named Brian Gamlin in 1896. It was played with each player starting with a score of 501 and taking turns to throw 3 darts. The score of each turn is calculated and deducted from the player’s total. 

4. Squash

The game of squash originated in England and it was invented more than a century and a half ago. It’s a sport played by two players (or four players for doubles) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. Players take turns hitting the ball against the front wall, above the tin, and below the outline.

The roots of the sport can be traced to ancient Greece, China, and India. It was brought to England in 1870 and was played somewhat like tennis.
