Video Games Vs. Outdoor Sports?
Back To Top
Yes, I am talking about physical sports activities. In the past few years, I saw a massive decrement in physical sports especially in tennis, football and squash from youngsters. Few of them are busy in video games especially game gadgets like VR, PlayStation etc just transformed there world. On the other hand, the ones who like physical sports only prefer to enjoy them by watching on their smart devices' screens. Actually, last year, I bought a squash racquet for my niece after conducting thorough research and reading reviews of reliable squash rackets
. I meet her after one year and she was good at playing racket games but I didn't find here happy. When I inquire she told me she loves more with video games as compared to outdoor sports. Maybe this happened due to her age. However, I made a great research in the purchase especially in the beginning I was willing to go with an inexpensive option like a $40 racket but then I considered the best option. Maybe it is also making me happy.
But, if we see in general perspective, the mind of people around the globe is changing rapidly and they are avoiding physical activities especially sports. The boys and girls who are passionate about playing outdoor games maybe attractive towards the glamour of these games and money could also be a reason. Here is an article https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2019/08/28/high-school-sports-participation-drops-first-time-years/
which discuss outdoor high school sports activity has declined. Keep in mind, this news only refers to the good standard high school. What about if we consider some ordinary schools in different countries?
