3 No-Impact Games to Entertain Your Guests Outdoors

by Virginia Lindstrom 08/03/2022

Have you ever gotten together with friends or family only to realize you don’t know what activities to engage in? Maybe you have a great outdoor space that’s primed and ready, but you just don’t know how to incorporate playful activities into it. Fret not. Here are 3 easygoing and low-to-no-contact games for you and your guests.

Kickball

If you have a yard large enough and at least four people willing to run around, you’re primed and ready for a game of kickball. Kickball is a lot like baseball in that it has bases that the player is trying to round without being tagged with the ball. The major difference between kickball and baseball is the equipment used. Instead of needing a bat to hit the ball, you use your leg to kick the ball that is rolled toward you, instead of thrown.

Outside of being touched by the ball, there’s no contact between players, making it one of the safer games to engage in.

Lawn Golf

Lawn golf is another brilliant outdoor sport that is low-impact, fun and doesn’t require any contact. The equipment needed is often a putter, ball and receptacle for the ball to roll into. If you don’t have a traditional lawn, you can purchase a putting mat.

The rules are like regular golf and it’s a great way for you to entertain and converse with your guests while enjoying a low-stress activity.

Badminton

When thinking “badminton,” think “extra large table tennis.” Badminton requires a small court area, racquets, a shuttlecock and net. Even if you don’t have a hard surface backyard or outdoor area, you can still play. You just may need a little lawn chalk or paint.

Badminton is great for keeping more hyper-focused guests entertained while engaging in a no-impact bout of friendly competition.

Hello and welcome to my website!

My Real Estate sales career began on June 18th 1985 at the age of 29- a wife & mother of 2 young children.

Within the 1st year I closed 5 sales and in January 1986, began my monthly marketing in the Lakewood Village neighborhood in Sunnyvale, where I made my very 1st sale and also took my 1st listing!

Over the last 3 decades, I've helped well over 450 families purchase and or sell their "American Dream".

I specialize in both Lakewood Village in Sunnyvale and the Cambrian area of San Jose, where I've lived for over 20 years. 

I now primarily help sellers with the sale of their property- whether it is their primary residence, or an investment cash out or 1031-Exchange, an Estate Trust sale or a Probate sale of a loved one who's passed away, I have vast knowledge and experience in all these areas of Real Estate.

I began my Real estate career with Century 21 Community Realty in Sunnyvale, until that office closed. Since then, I've been with Re/Max Real Estate Services in Cupertino and recently celebrated 26 years with Re/Max in October 2019.

I pride myself in being the best Real Estate professional I can be with integrity and honor at the forefront of my business career and my clients.

Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to an opportunity to serve you and your family with all your Real Estate needs too!

Warmest Regards,
