3 No-Impact Games to Entertain Your Guests Outdoors

by Sharon Simmons 05/09/2022

Have you ever gotten together with friends or family only to realize you don’t know what activities to engage in? Maybe you have a great outdoor space that’s primed and ready, but you just don’t know how to incorporate playful activities into it. Fret not. Here are 3 easygoing and low-to-no-contact games for you and your guests.

Kickball

If you have a yard large enough and at least four people willing to run around, you’re primed and ready for a game of kickball. Kickball is a lot like baseball in that it has bases that the player is trying to round without being tagged with the ball. The major difference between kickball and baseball is the equipment used. Instead of needing a bat to hit the ball, you use your leg to kick the ball that is rolled toward you, instead of thrown.

Outside of being touched by the ball, there’s no contact between players, making it one of the safer games to engage in.

Lawn Golf

Lawn golf is another brilliant outdoor sport that is low-impact, fun and doesn’t require any contact. The equipment needed is often a putter, ball and receptacle for the ball to roll into. If you don’t have a traditional lawn, you can purchase a putting mat.

The rules are like regular golf and it’s a great way for you to entertain and converse with your guests while enjoying a low-stress activity.

Badminton

When thinking “badminton,” think “extra large table tennis.” Badminton requires a small court area, racquets, a shuttlecock and net. Even if you don’t have a hard surface backyard or outdoor area, you can still play. You just may need a little lawn chalk or paint.

Badminton is great for keeping more hyper-focused guests entertained while engaging in a no-impact bout of friendly competition.
