If you’re look­ing for some­thing a bit fun and dif­fer­ent to spice up your ex­er­cise rou­tine, why not give Speed­golf a go? It’s the new (and fit­bies might say im­proved) golf spin-off that re­quires you to run the dis­tances be­tween each stroke and hole. At the end, you add your to­tal time and the num­ber of strokes and that’s your fi­nal score – the lower the score the bet­ter! You’re al­lowed to carry up to seven clubs in your hand or in a small bag (no cad­dies or bug­gies al­lowed!), but ob­vi­ously less weight and bulk equals faster run­ning. Com­pet­i­tive Speed­golfer Ge­orge Box­all rec­om­mends be­gin­ners try not to run too fast and that you take your time with your shots and don’t for­get to watch where your ball’s go­ing.

Don’t worry if you’ve never played golf be­fore – this game may be played in­di­vid­u­ally in com­pe­ti­tions but, if you’re just af­ter a bit of fun, you can play in a pair or as a team with a small group of friends. Cue plenty of fun and slightly breath­less ban­ter. Just make sure you read the rules be­fore you set out to avoid be­ing clob­bered by balls! Check out british­speed­
