1. Underwater Hockey these Summer Holidays

Instead of being burned by the blazing sun on some golf field or a basketball court, take your activities underwater instead.

Underwater hockey, also called Octopush and Water Hockey, is a global non-contact sport in which two teams compete to manoeuvre a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into goals. You’ll just need some balls that don’t float and you’re all set to enjoy this refreshing, cool sport.

2. Rolling Plastic Stones and Zorbing

Zorbing is generally performed on a gentle slope, but can also be done on a level surface, permitting more rider control.

Instead of the actual hill, you could use a wooden or a metal ramp just as well. Is there a better way to descend down a hill than in a plastic ball? With summer just around the corner, it’s going to be even more fun. Zorbing is the recreation or sport of rolling downhill in an orb, generally made of transparent plastic. You can either use the orb with a harness, or the one without it. Non-harness orbs carry up to three passengers while the harness orbs are constructed for one to two people.

3. Foot Volleyball on a Trampoline

Ever wonder how volleyball would look like without using your hands? If not, you should have, because it’s awesome. Use your feet only while jumping on a trampoline. It’s totally crazy!

4. Water Jet Packing

Jet packs are the way of the future.

Can you imagine soaring the skies like an eagle? Well, you shouldn’t, since you won’t be able to go that high but it’ll still be breathtaking. For only $130,000 you can own your personal water thrusting jetpack. The Water Jet Pack can lift you up over 20 feet high and thrust forward at 22 miles per hour.

5. Crazy Elephant Polo

Elephant polo is a variant of polo played whilst riding elephants.

It is played where elephants are plentiful, so mostly Sri Lanka, Nepal, Thailand and India. The equipment consists of a standard polo ball and six to ten-foot cane (similar to bamboo) sticks with a polo mallet head on the end. After the normal polo, the water polo and the bike polo, the next challenge comes in the form of elephant polo. It’s supposed to not make you bored like the usual polo probably does. Because elephants are not as fast, the pitch is also just a bit shorter. Two people ride each elephant – one, the mahout, steers the elephant, while the player tells the mahout which way to go and hits the ball.

6. Cheese Races or Cheese Hunting

Instead of eating the tasty cheese, chase it down the hill instead.

What actually happens is unbelievable, as discovered by the pioneers and inventors of the sport way back in 1997. They discovered that the plastic pouch does not melt – even when the cheese inside eventually boils! These boiling temperatures cause the gas from chemicals used in cheese processing to begin inflating the bag! Finally, the craziest of all the things is that the pouch doesn’t burst under pressure at all.

7. Trike Drifting

Taking a trike out for a spin is the true meaning of adrenaline rush. This summer we must go riding trikes as we did back in the day. Riding trikes that will probably break slapped together with no bling-bling, is awesome, cause that’s how we roll.

8. Ping Pong Without Rackets

For adventure this summer you have to prove to yourself by playing Ping Pong with your bare hands only. It’s nowhere near as easy as it sounds, so better come prepared if you want to stand a chance.

9. Pole Climbing

Pole climbing may be defined as ascending a pole which one can grip with bare hands.

You can see this more often at beaches these days.  The difficulty arises when the column is greased with sun cream. It is normally assumed that climbers who view the activity as a challenging activity use only their bodies and limbs, without artificial aids.

10. Fish Throwing Competition

In Australia, there is a national sports festival revolving (quite literally) around tons of fish.

This very interesting sports competition is taking place amidst all that fish and it’s called tuna throwing. What they do is attach a rope to the fish’s tail and then start spinning the rope before launching it. You’d expect someone such as Sean Carlin with his rich hammer-throwing history to be really good at this. You would not be wrong. His tuna-throwing record is astonishing 37.23 meters. The competition uses spoiled fish only, so it’s not like they’re tossing actual food. Quite appropriately named, Tunarama attracts a lot of visitors looking to observe this funny display of skill – from a smell-free distance!

There’s quite a decent choice of summer sports to take part in this year. Choose wisely, as you might become the next champion of fish throwing, or even invent your own sport!
