Dodgeball

Not a new sport by any means but a great classic. One of my favorites growing up playing in the courtyard after school. The sessions could get intense. Check out Abilene's own venue with a dodgeball court and trampolines.

While it's true that nothing will get that blood pumping like some good old-fashioned physical activity, you have to be careful. Especially in this wicked Abilene heat. If you still want to stay in motion but in an easy, relaxed way, why not a game of mini-golf? Keep reading to check out some of the coolest ones in Texas.
