Sports Day Games for Adults

Tug Of War

Tug of war is an activity that involves two teams pulling on opposite ends of a rope, with the goal of dragging the other team across a designated line in the center of the playing field. The game requires both physical strength and strategic coordination between team members.

Nerf Javeline

Nerf Javelin uses a soft foam-based javelin that can be used in a variety of games and activities, such as target practice, distance throwing, and relay races. It can be played individually or as part of a team, and can be used indoors or outdoors.

Tennis Shot Put

Traditional shot put is a field event that involves throwing a heavy metal ball, known as the shot, as far as possible. In this modified game, players use a tennis ball and racquet to strike the ball as far as possible, aiming for a specific target or trying to surpass a certain distance. The player who throws the ball the farthest would be the winner.

Three Legged Race

A three-legged race is a competition in which pairs of participants are bound together at the ankle, and must work together to navigate a designated course. It's like hopscotch, but instead of using a single leg, you have to synchronise your movements with your partner's while sharing a leg between the two of you. Typically you’ll see individuals hobbling, stumbling, and tripping over each other while trying to maintain balance and momentum. The coordination required to move in unison while tied together makes it both a hilarious and challenging activity.

Egg And Spoon Race

A competition that truly separates the delicate and graceful from the clumsy and calamitous. Picture this: a group of determined individuals, each equipped with an egg, delicately balanced on a spoon, ready to take on the challenge of a lifetime. As players navigate the course, other teams introduce obstacles, requiring players to twist, turn, and duck with the finesse of a ballerina. With the finish line in sight, who will succumb to the pressure and watch in horror as their egg tumbles to the ground? In the end, it's a true test of skill, luck, and perhaps a little bit of magic. The Egg and Spoon Race: a delightfully quirky and unpredictable adventure.

Relay Race

Imagine a game of hot potato, but instead of a potato, it's a baton, and instead of standing still, you're running as fast as you can. And if you drop the baton, your team's hopes and dreams will fall faster than a clumsy toddler carrying a glass of juice. That's the relay race!

Wheelbarrow Race

It's like a race, but instead of running like a normal human, you're crawling on all fours like a farm animal. And instead of using your hands and feet to move, you're relying on a trusty wheelbarrow to carry you to victory. It's a test of coordination, strength, and balance, where the person pushing the wheelbarrow has to trust that their partner won't faceplant into the ground. It's a true test of friendship, where you have to rely on each other to make it across the finish line without tipping over. It's like a wacky obstacle course, where the obstacles are your own body and the barrow that's carrying it. So strap on your gardening gloves, because it's time to wheel your way to glory!

Space Hopper Race

It's like a herd of bouncy kangaroos, except they're not real kangaroos, they're humans riding on big rubber balls. They bounce and hop and race each other like they're on a wild intergalactic adventure, except in reality they're just in a field somewhere on Earth. It's the Space Hopper Race, where gravity takes a backseat and bouncing skills reign supreme. Get ready to hop, skip, and jump your way to the finish line!

Sack Race

It's like a potato sack fashion show, where people turn into hoppin' haute couture. Players are required to don their finest burlap ensembles and hop their way down the race track and shuffle their way to the finish line. It's all about the wobbly hops and awkward leaps as you try not to tumble over like a bowling pin. It's a race that's both ridiculous and exhilarating, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. So grab your sack, hop in, and get ready to race like a spud-tacular superstar!

Skipping Race

It's like a bouncy battle of fleet-footed frolickers, leaping and launching themselves into a speedy sprint. The ground trembles with each hop and skip as players strive to be the skippiest of them all. It's a contest, where the lightness of your feet could determine your victory. So don’t skip a beat, and let’s hop to it!

Bean Bag Toss

It’s time to toss and twirl your little legume-filled friends into the air, hoping to land them gracefully in their designated bucket. You must channel your inner circus performer, balancing your aim and your poise, as the bean bags soar through the sky. It's a game that rewards both accuracy and showmanship, as you cheer and jeer your opponents, all while indulging in the joy of throwing things around. So let's toss those beans and put on a show!

Hula Hoop Race

It's like a circular showdown, where you spin and swirl your hips to keep that colourful plastic ring from falling down. Your body becomes a blur of motion as you navigate through a twisting obstacle course, trying to out-hoop your competitors. It's a test of endurance, balance, and of course, your ability to look cool while gyrating your midsection. So grab your hoops, tie up your hula skirts, and let's see who can keep their hips swinging the longest!

Obstacle Race

At our adult sports day, all participants come together for one final push to achieve glory in a thrilling obstacle relay race. The race features a variety of sequential events that are linked together to create a challenging course. Each player is required to complete a their challenge before passing the baton to the next team member, who then tackles the next obstacle. The points earned in this culminating round are doubly weighted, providing an opportunity for teams lower on the leaderboard to make a surprising comeback.
