When it comes to sports, there are a number of ways to play. There are several sports in play (get it?) even just within the U. S., but there are even more sports being played abroad. Cricket, for example, is popular in the U. K., though we don’t play it in the States. There are countless examples of engaging our bodies in friendly competition to try, if you’re into it. However, there are a number of other ways to play that aren’t physical games of skill. Rather, why not try some of the more cerebral games of skill that we have at our disposal? Here are a few examples of ways to play without being an athlete.
First and foremost, I can’t recommend video games enough. As an avid gamer, myself I can attest to the tremendous value of this type of play. For a variety of reasons, mind you, but there is a rather large following for eSports, which are games that are structured like team sports such as football and that are played online competitively. Furthermore, these eSports have official sport status and are used as the basis for tournaments where professional gamers compete, and you can catch these tourneys on ESPN nowadays. Video games also offer virtual versions of traditional sports, so there’s something for everyone. The new bigthing in eSports right now is Overwatch, a team based first person shooter. So, why not invest in a gaming PC via Lenovo and join in on the fun?
Another way to play is via table top games? These include board games, first and foremost. Board games are at least known, if not familiar, to all of us, and there are two major contenders in this department. The first is chess, another game that has been officially declared a sport due to its heavy focus on strategy. More specifically, the focus of competitive chess is being able to predict your opponent’s moves in advance and plan multiple future actions based on these predicted plays.
