Non-Traditional Sports

If you're a sports person, it's likely you've played some basketball, baseball, and football over the years. They are classics but they can sometimes get old too. Why not mix things up by trying something a little different? How about archery or rugby or speed skating?

Grab a few friends and start a new sporting tradition:
