Two Popular Indoor Sports Starting With the Letter B That Require a Ball to Play

There are many sports and games that people love to play. Some of these take place indoors. Many games start with the letter B but only a few require a ball. Two such games are basketball and bowling. These are great activities to keep fit, have fun and enjoy the company of your friends.

Basketball is played on a rectangular court. It can be held indoors and outdoors but it is mostly kept indoors. The court is divided into two equal halves. The game is played with two teams that have five players each (on court). Both teams consist of players with the same gender. Apart from the court, you also need one ball called a basketball and two backboards. In addition, you should wear proper sports clothes and shoes. Balls are traditionally orange with black ribs. The basketball is the central part of the game and players must dribble it, pass it or shoot it during the game. The purpose of the game is to shoot the ball by throwing it into the opponent’s net. The challenge is to take the basketball from the other team and shoot to score points. The team who scores the most points wins. Of course when you play with friends you can use a different team size and mix genders on each team.

Bowling is played indoors at a bowling center. The team size can vary and can consist of mixed genders. In addition to the alley, you need a ball called a bowling ball, pins and bowling shoes. You can also use hand guards, gloves and a zippered bag, but these are optional. The bowling ball is the focus of the game and comes in various colours. Each one usually has at least three holes. These holes are for your fingers so that you can grip the ball properly. There is more than one ball in the game but each player can only use one at a time. You roll or throw it down the lawn to hit the pins. The type of game you choose will determine how many pins you use. The purpose of the game is to use the ball to knock over as many pins as you can. The challenge is to knock down more pins than the other team in order to win the game.

Both games are great to play with your friends because you get learn more about each other. You can also meet new people and then make new friends, which increases the size of your social network. Playing on a team also helps to strengthen your teamwork skills. In addition, physical activities help you to stay fit. Most importantly remember to have fun!
