Playing sports is an important part of who we are. A sport, both indoors and outdoors, not only makes us feel better, but it also relieves stress. Sports help us relax and teach us a lot of important lessons. What kind of sports someone plays says a lot about who they are.

This is exactly why it is suggested that anyone should make any sport they have played a part of their daily routine. Playing sports can help you get in shape, be more patient, work better with others, be a better leader, and bring people together.

Sports have been around almost as long as people have. Many of the games that were already around have changed and grown since then, and many new ones have been created. There are more than 100 games on the list now. A lot of different sports can be played, such as football, cricket, basketball, baseball, archery, car racing, boxing, wrestling, gymnastics, tennis, and more. There are many sports to choose from if someone wants to learn a new one.

We’ve got you covered, though, if you’re in the group of people who don’t play sports. Someone who said that you can’t learn a sport if you’re not naturally good at it was wrong. You can and will learn a sport, not only to get in shape but also because it looks great on your resume. Don’t forget to read about How to Improve Your CV and Build Your Resume Skills.

Here is a list of simple games that are easy to learn and don’t require a lot of time or money:

1. Tennis Badminton

Tennis Badminton

Badminton is without a doubt one of the best and easiest sports to learn. Two or four people stand on either side of the court and each have a racket and a shuttle cock. The goal for each team is to get the shuttle over the net and into the other team’s court. In this game, both teams try to keep the shuttle cock in the air and make the other team drop it by hitting it back and forth. Students will benefit from this sport because it will help them get stronger and tone their arms and legs. Not only that, but it will also help you relax, give your body more air, and give you a break in the easiest way possible.

How Long It Takes to Learn:

You can get better at badminton by practicing it often. They say “they are still learning” even when they are the best players. However, you can learn the basics of badminton on your own (with a good partner) in 15 days (2 hours per day), and if you join an expert coaching centre, you’ll get a full training in 3 to 5 months.

What You Need to Bring:

  • Each player gets one racquet.
  • One Dock for Shuttle
  • A court that is well marked and has a net

2. Swimming


Anyone of any age can learn to swim. Learning this sport is very good for you in general. It helps because it makes you stronger, gives you more energy, and makes you able to stay in the water longer. It’s also basically a survival strategy for many emergency scenarios. Aside from that, it keeps heart disease away, works out muscles that haven’t been used much, and burns the most calories. Plus, you need it to get some jobs or take some classes. Swimming is just moving through the water by moving your arms and legs and pushing yourself forward. It includes different kinds and strokes, such as the butterfly stroke, breast stroke, back stroke, side stroke, freestyle stroke, and more. Strokes are the coordinated movements of your arms and legs that help you move forward in the water.

How Long It Takes to Learn:

It’s not too hard to learn how to swim. After learning how to move your arms and legs (at first while hanging on to a bar), it takes three to four days to learn how to move forward. In general, it takes 15 days to learn basic swimming skills like two to three strokes and basic dives. To become an expert swimmer, you should find out how strong and fast you are and then join a swimming school that fits your needs.

What You Need to Bring:

  • A bathing suit, ideally one made of polyester, nylon, or spandex
  • Swimming glasses and a cap
  • A small rucksack
  • For tough swim workouts, you can also use pull buoys, hand paddles, kickboards, and other flotation devices.

3. Bicycle riding

Bicycle riding

One of the best and most fun games is cycling. We all learned to ride a bike as kids, whether we wanted to or not. As we got older, we probably stopped riding bikes and switched to two- or four-wheelers instead. The good news is that cycling is a very healthy sport that is good for both the rider and the world. The sport of cycling is good for the earth and doesn’t cause stress. Basically, cycling is putting your feet on the paddles and paddling with both feet at the same time to stay balanced and move forward. You can eat and sleep better when you cycle, and you’ll get more air and a stronger immune system. Cycling can also lower your stress and make you more productive overall.

How Long It Takes to Learn:

How long it takes to learn to ride a bike changes from person to person. Some people learn it in hours, while others need weeks. On average, it takes two to three days to learn how to ride a bike. When you practise regularly, your speed, pace, energy, stamina, and the distance you cover all get better.

What You Need to Bring:

  • Sports shoes with good grip for a bike or bike helmet.
  • Jersey and shorts that are comfortable
  • Band or gloves around the wrist
  • Bottle of water
  • Lock the bike

4. Tennis Table

Tennis Table

Two to four people can play table tennis at the same time. To win the game, you have to get 11 points first (one set). A table with a net in the middle is needed. One person hits the ball with a racquet at their opponent, but the ball has to touch their side of the court first and then bounce over to the other side. The person also can’t let the ball touch any part of their body, or they lose a point. A person can get one point by following several rules:

  • If the other player doesn’t serve right,
  • If the other player doesn’t return the ball AND the ball touches the other player in any way
  • If the other player hits the net or court,
  • If the other player hits the ball twice in a row, and many other rules.

How Long It Takes to Learn:

To get good at table tennis, it takes longer than most sports. When you get the hang of something, it gets easier to learn. It does take some time and effort to learn the basics, though. A professional level of table tennis usually takes a few years, but anyone can learn the basics in 20 to 30 days of concentrated practice.

Things You’ll Need:

  • A table that is the right size (2.74 m x 1.25 m, 76 cm above the ground)
  • A net
  • Each player gets one wooden stick.
  • An about-2.7-gram ball that’s 40 mm in diameter. It could be made of celluloid or another type of plastic. It’s usually orange or white and has a matte finish.
  • You can also wear and carry good shoes, wrist bands, and a water bottle.

5. Volleyball Play

 Volleyball Play

Volleyball is a team sport that is a lot of fun to learn and play. It is often called a “beach sport.” It is played outside on a big court with a net separating the two halves. There are two teams of six people each, and each team gets three hits. There are three chances to hit the ball. The goal is to throw the ball over the net so the other team can’t hit it back or stop it from hitting the ground. The first team to score 21 points wins, as does the first team to win two of three games. It gives kids more endurance, stronger muscles, and most importantly, the ability to work together, lead, and communicate.

How Long It Takes to Learn:

Tennis takes about a month to learn if you play it at least twice or three times a week. Usually, someone can learn a game with a lot of hard work and the right training. It helps you get in shape, and the more you play, the better you’ll get at it and the more you’ll want to work together as a team.

Things You’ll Need:

  • 18 m x 9 m football court
  • A net
  • A normal basketball made of leather or fake leather. The outside diameter should be between 25.6-26.4 inches. It needs to be about 9 to 10 ounces heavy.

You should put in a lot of effort to learn any sport you choose. These sports are easy to learn and don’t require a lot of money or time. They will look good on your CV and make you look like you can do a lot of different things. Playing sports is a big part of how you become who you are and how you connect with other people. The best things about it are that it keeps you fit and relieves stress, which is very important for the way we live.
