Sports For Couples

Share with your friends!

Want some fun sports for couples to try? Not everyone loves football, but we can guarantee that there’s a sport out there that everyone can enjoy. Not only that, but if you’re looking for something that you and your partner can do together, or for date night, sports are a great way to have some fun and deepen your connection at the same time.

Of course, there’s lots of sports out there to choose from, but there are some sports that seem like they are just meant for couples. 

Why should couples play sports together?

Having similar passions and interests is essential to any successful relationship. If you can’t find things you love to do together, like a couples hobby, it won’t take you long to get bored of each other’s company.

Sports are something that everyone can enjoy.

Sure, you and your partner probably won’t share the same love for every sport.

Maybe your partner loves football and you hate it. Or vice versa with volleyball.

But if you search hard enough, there will definitely be a sport out there that you can share a passion for, and make some great memories doing.

Fun Couples Sports

So without further ado, here are some of our favorite sports for couples:


If you’re looking for a great co-ed date night that you can do with friends, look no further than the game of softball.

The game is very similar to baseball with a few amendments – the ball is larger and thrown underhand, and the field is smaller than in regular baseball.

With that being said, softball is a game that anyone can play and enjoy, and is often played as a social outing. It makes for a great double date night between friends, and is also an excellent choice if you’re looking to meet some new ones. 


This is another great activity to do with friends, or just to do alone with your partner. Biking is a great way to get out for an outdoor date and get some fresh air while at the same time spending some quality time with your partner.

Bike around your own city, or if you’re feeling up for an adventure you can try exploring some new trails. The best part? No matter where you live, there’s dozens of biking trails close to you so you’ll never run out of trails to enjoy. 


Golf is a great sport that pretty much anyone can learn. If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing that doesn’t require as much physical effort, golf is the perfect sport for you.

Golf is a great way to spend some quality time with your partner while at the same time taking in the beauty of nature around you.

It’s great for older couples that don’t have as much energy as they once did, or couples that want a slower pace sport where they can talk and connect with one another while playing. 

Of course, golf can be a tricky sport to play and takes some practice, so don’t be afraid to take some lessons together if needed!

You can always head out to the driving range and enjoy a date there without having to play a full game around the course.


What better way to connect and get close with your partner than dancing in their arms? Dancing is a wonderful partner sport. Not only is it super fun but it’s also a great workout.

Plus, you and your partner will be able to showcase all of your new moves and impress all of your friends and family. 

No, you and your partner don’t have to do ballet together. There’s a dance style out there that anyone can enjoy. Hip hop, ballroom, jazz, tap, Irish, folk – there’s plenty of options to choose from. 

Rock Climbing

Okay, so this one might not be for every couple, but if you and your partner are adventurous, rock climbing can definitely be a fun sport to try together.

Rock climbing is a great workout, plus relying on your partner to hold your rope while you climb requires that you have a lot of faith and confidence in your partner not to drop you. In return, this is a great trust building activity.

Of course, we don’t recommend that you head out and start climbing mountains. Start at the bottom together with some training at an indoor rock climbing course.

Then, once you’re more confident in your skills, take them out into the real world for some adventure and adrenaline. 


Squash is a simple sport that only involves a racquet, a ball, and two players. And with all the jumping, running, and diving you’ll be doing, it’s a great sport for burning calories while at the same time having a blast with your partner.

The best part about squash is that unlike similar sports like tennis, squash is generally played indoors. This means that you can play it all year round, regardless of the weather…even for a rainy day date!

Plus, squash courts are usually pretty easy to find. Most local gyms will have a squash court in them for you to enjoy. 


Have some pent up frustrations that you and your partner need to get out? Fencing experts often recommend this sport to help release built up tensions!

Yes, they will duel you against your partner! Of course, you can’t actually hit them – but let the battle begin! We’re kidding (kind of).

On a more serious note however, fencing is great for building reflexes, agility, and hand-eye coordination. It can even help to improve things like posture. 


We know it seems basic, but running is a great couples activity. Not only can it help you improve your health and get in shape, but it’s also a great bonding experience.

It’s also completely free. You can run pretty much anywhere. Whether you choose to run around your city or explore unique trails, you’ll never run out of new places to run – and it doesn’t cost a dime.

Plus, you can always join a running club to meet other people and couples, and you can engage yourselves in races or fundraising opportunities. 

Of course you can try volleyball, tennis, soccer, football, frisbee, and so much more! The point is to find a fun physical activity you can do with your partner a few times a month.
