  • A great way to keep active

All kids are likely to find something they can get involved in at an indoor sports centre. Many indoor sports venues and health & fitness centres are likely to have a kids’ play area for toddlers as well, so there is no need for anyone to feel left out! Bigger kids can generally play indoor sports from age 5 upwards. kids activities and classes for smaller children include fun games based around a sport such as indoor soccer.

Other indoor sports ideas include games that can be played at home if you have sufficient covered space or a big lounge and you don’t mind pushing furniture back against the walls for a while. These indoor sports include balloon football and indoor foot volleyball, which the kids can do in teams but lying on their backs and using their feet to kick a balloon to and fro.
