With the state of the atmosphere in Delhi NCR is in right now and the usual lack of space for outdoor sports in most cases for children as well as adults, it is imperative for us to start looking into alternatives. A lot of us like physical activity and all of us need it, but often scowl at the idea of going to the gym. After all, let’s face it; the gym is a boring place. Sure you’re working out, but it definitely gets repetitive and monotonous.
What we need is hardcore, competitive sports to get that blood flowing and to have fun at the same time. However, considering the pollution we are facing these days it is ill advised to go out with your buddies for a bout of football or cricket or basketball. So instead of going out, why not go in? Here are 5 sports complexes to play outdoor sports indoors!
