Coming out of what has been a pretty lonesome and secluded time in all of our lives, you may be seeking to start a new hobby that gets you out there and allows you to catch up with family and friends over an activity that none of you have tried before. You may start thinking of a new sport to take up as a group, as sports can be a great medium to allow you to bond and create connections with friends old and new, so here is a list of five of the most sociable sports to enjoy with friends.
Being the most popular sport in the world, football offers you a great way in which to bond with someone in any part of the globe. Just kicking a ball around and catching up on the latest news allows you and your mates the chance to get some exercise and still socialise as a group, and if you want to take it more seriously then there are many local clubs, Sunday leagues, practice sessions and more to dive into with your mates. There is a reason so many people are invested in football, and as long as you have a ball and someone else to kick it with then you have got yourself a fantastic way to socialise.
Bouncing off the football hype we have rugby, a slightly more physical way to enjoy time with your friends, but still a worthwhile way to interact as a group. Nothing brings a group closer together than wrestling each other to the ground in the pouring rain, mud plastered all over you as your mate picks you off the floor and pats you on the back for a tackle well done. Even in a more chilled game of touch rugby, rugby brings those playing it closer together than any other sport, even if ruggers does come with the risk of being floored while trying to bring down the bigger members of the group.
Cycling can easily become an addictive pastime for your social group if you let it. Where there is a road there is a way, and if you and your friends are feeling explorative you do not even need the road. Whether you are into cycling round your local town, mountain biking, or fancy a more long-term trip, cycling has a lot to offer you and your friends. Bikes can be an expensive investment to make at first, but once you get a feel for whizzing round corners with the wind in your face the investment will definitely be worth it.
Similar to canoeing, hiking can be enjoyed and appreciated by yourself, though it undeniably has the potential to be a great way for you and your friend to all take in these wonderful sites and scenery together. Hiking can take you and your friends to many great places, and when you are up there taking in all that nature has to offer, you will be glad that you took some friends and family with you to share in this wonderful experience.
The beautiful thing about skiing is not the glorious views you can appreciate as you cut your way through the snow, it is the amazing time you and your friends will be having at the resort you decide to stay at. For many, skiing is only half the fun when going on a skiing holiday, the rest is made up exploring the snowy sites with their buddies, and then going to party in the many chalets and mountaintop bars that dot the landscape.
