Indoor sports and activities might not be on the top of your list when it comes to things to do in winter. However, if you’re looking for a new way to keep active and have fun this season, here are some ideas to help you stay entertained indoors.


Golf is a great sport to play indoors. It can be played on any flat surface, and the equipment is relatively cheap. Golf is good exercise, have fun with friends or family, and learn about golf history. For example, many people who play golf are also interested in watching professional tournaments from time to time.

Golf simulator NYC software allows beginners to try this amazing game without spending too much money on clubs and balls. These simulators will let anyone practice their swings without having an actual course nearby!


Badminton is a sport that’s great for beginners. It’s also a lot of fun to play, and it can be an excellent way to get some exercise.

The basic idea behind badminton is simple: two teams of either two or four players take turns hitting a small, light ball across a net—set at 22 feet high in international competitions—and trying to hit the opposing team’s shuttlecock (the birdie). The goal is to score points by hitting your opponent’s birdie on your side of the court; if you return their shot before they can return yours, you score one point. You keep playing until one team reaches 11 points or more after five full rounds (aka games), which usually takes about half an hour, depending on how fast you play!


Bowling is a fun activity that you can do with friends and family. You can also use it as a great way to exercise during the winter months. It’s something you can do indoors, so it’s perfect if you want to get out of the house but are tired of all of your usual outdoor activities!

Bowling is a great way to get some exercise, too. In one game of bowling, players will walk from 20-30 yards each time they take their turn at the lane—and that’s just for one round! That adds up quickly over an entire day or evening spent enjoying this sport with others who share your interest in getting some exercise while having fun simultaneously!

Indoor Archery

Indoor archery is a great way to get exercise and have fun in the winter. To be safe, you will need a bow and arrows. The bow should be at least 30 pounds and draw weight (the amount of energy required to pull the string back) of 15 pounds or less; you can find these on Amazon or at your local sports store.

The arrows should be made from carbon fiber or aluminum—wooden ones are not recommended for indoor use since they won’t fly very well in low-humidity environments such as gyms or basements. Your other option is carbon fiber arrows with vanes (feathered ends), which also work well indoors but cost more than aluminum versions that don’t have vanes attached yet fly just as well!

You will also need protective clothing. That includes padded vests, gloves, mouth guards, and knee pads if possible. When shooting inside, there’s no way around it: You’re probably going to fall down sometimes, even if you’re careful!

DIY Projects

DIY projects can be a great way to stay active during the winter. Whether you’re decorating your home, or building something with your children or grandkids, DIY projects are both fun and challenging. They can help you develop creativity and problem-solving skills—skills that will help in all areas of life!

You’ll also find that DIY projects are rewarding: when you complete a project from start to finish (especially if it’s something really special), there’s nothing like it. You’re proud of what you’ve created and how much better your home looks because of it.

When done with friends or family, DIY projects can be an excellent form of socializing during the winter months. It’s always better to spend time with others than alone!


Winter is a great time to get creative with indoor sports and activities. You can be creative and make your own game or play with whatever you have in the house. Winter is also a great time to spend more time with your family.
