Climbing for fun and fitness

Rock Wall Climbing

Another sport in which to consider participating is climbing. Challenge yourself and build fitness while getting a view you could otherwise only obtain by riding on a platform suspended by a few hundred remote-controlled helicopters. A number of notable climbing facilities are located in Oklahoma City, such as Rocktown Climbing Gym, Climb Up OKC, and the Sandridge Sky Trail at the river, among others.

Bucking tradition

Top Golf

Golf takes many forms. Long gone are the days of yore when golf required a club and ball. Today you can play a round of disc golf in a public park or show off your skill when it comes to putting a ball through a clown’s mouth.

Looking for a fun place to take your date after enjoying a cold Coke? Or maybe just want to have a relaxing afternoon with the family? Head out to one of OKC’s popular miniature golf courses. These establishments offer 18-holes of the finest mini-golf around and the best part is that balls and putters are included:

Like the idea of golf but don’t want to mess with clubs, golf carts and green fees? Give disc golf a try. Never head of disc golf? It is actually quite simple: think golf with a Frisbee. All you need is a Frisbee because the courses are free. Central OKC is home to several courses:

One of the newest additions to OKC is TopGolf. Never been to a TopGolf? The concept is simple, you hit golf balls towards certain targets to score points. The great thing is the balls have computer chips in them so the score is totaled by a computer. You don’t have to break out your math skills. That is a good thing because you can enjoy TopGolf while eating and enjoying your favorite adult beverages. The three-story complex allows even the most novice golfers to hit the ball a mile (not literally). TopGolf is fun for everyone in the family, from those who think they are the next Jack Nicklaus to those who don’t know the difference between a birdie and a bogey.

Get your row on

Regatta on the Oklahoma River

Did you know that there’s a world-class rowing site right in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City? In fact, numerous local companies and organizations throughout OKC have teams who hone their rowing skills and compete annually against teams from all over during the Oklahoma Regatta Festival. This year on Oct. 1-4, more than 2,500 athletes will gather to compete in the Boathouse District.

Not only is it a fun-filled, exhilarating time for participants but spectators also have a unique opportunity to see OKC in a whole new light. Head of the Oklahoma races will include 2.5 mile races against the clock each day where participants compete for the best time. The 500-meter night sprints Saturday evening will surely be a sight not to miss. Events are held in different categories including collegiate, masters and junior rowing as well as kayak and dragon boat racing. But the fun isn’t just limited to participants. Each year a free family festival including games, fun and great food is held to coincide with the Regatta and each evening concludes with a fireworks display over the Oklahoma River!

One event that we are anxiously awaiting is Quixotic Cirque Nouveau. We’re not sure if we are more in awe of the acrobatics and phenomenal artistry or the fact that the show is literally taking place at the top of the six-story SandRidge Sky Trail. Bring the whole family to enjoy this unique, free event. Just don’t forget the blankets!

Dodgers Dodgeball!

Dodgers Dodgeball

The inaugural Oklahoma City Dodgers season may be over (boooo!), but the fun’s not finished at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark (yayyyy!). The Dodgers are hosting the first Dodgers Dodgeball tournament on Thursday, October 1st from 6-10 p.m. So get anywhere from six to 10 of your friends with good arms and quick feet together and try your luck dodging those flyin’ red balls as you take a trip back in time to middle school at The Brick. $35 per person gets you at least three games guaranteed, along with a t-shirt, three beers (we know you didn’t get any cold ones in gym class), and a lifetime of memories—as long as you don’t get beaned in the head too much, anyway. Are you in or are you “out” (get it??)? Hurry, because registration closes on September 24. Be there!

Batter Up

kickball

All this baseball talk got you revved up for a run around the bases, but you just don’t think you have it in you to run too much without a beverage or two in hand? We hear you, Uncle Rico. Forget the buzzkill that comes with being unable to hold a beer with a baseball glove and join the kickball revolution. There are at least two kickball leagues we know of in OKC, and occasionally the OKC parks department even offers a tournament. Social co-ed sports can be a great way to meet new people in OKC and have some fun while you try to regain a few fleeting moments of your former all-star form.

For more info, check out D-Bat Sportsplex on NW 122nd and WAKA (that’s World Adult Kickball Association, for the un-initiated) kickball at www.kickball.com/okc. If you know of any more leagues around the city, let us know in the comments!
