When you are a sports lover or you love physical activities in general, you can not help but to sit tight at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic where you must adhere to social distancing, wearing a mask once you step outside the door, handwashing for 20 seconds and other prevention behaviors to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. Although it is the best for the community and the globe, the lack of active movements will cause your body to feel fatigue and strangely unmotivated even when you did the bare minimum. Even Malaysian students who pursue Bachelor’s degree in Sports Management with a sports major can struggle to suffice their learning experience. Despite participating in online Sports Science Course, the pandemic is a difficult time for those who dream for the ‘peluang kerjaya dalam bidang sukan’ (career chance in sports field).
However, it is not the end for those who love active involvements because here are sports that you can play with friends or family that is social distance friendly:
The lesser the number of people, the safer it will be, the lower the posing risk of infection. Tennis is the perfect option as the system involves only two players and plenty of space. Even playing as double is viable to consider your partner’s bubble while in the match. Besides, the shared contact with the tennis ball is at the proximity of the racket instead of your hands.
Just like tennis, badminton uses the same concept of playing as a pair or double with appropriate distance to comply with the physical distancing rule. Also, the shuttlecock only makes contact with your racket and not your hands, therefore it is another safer sport to play.
If you need the fresh air and larger space to not suffocate you in small spaces, cycling is the ideal sport for you. You can either cycle or have a friend (or friends) as a group for more fun as all of you can still keep the required distance and chat like normal as your calories are burning. The best part is you can take the advantage of the side road since it is quieter due to people more inclined to stay at home and be comfortable in those spaces, which may and may not be your kind of thing. Every cloud has a silver lining – so you can even break your new distance record and be amazed at the farthest miles you can reach in a day and have a good night’s sleep at night.
Do you miss your dance classes? Do you ever come the yearn to put on your dance outfit and move along with rhythm and precision? Blast off your favorite song or playlist on speaker and keep yourself fun with high energy. Or, you can create your very own choreography. So dance your heart out and the night away!
