People all around the world love to enjoy leisure activities. We play many indoor and outdoor games and sports at our leisure time. Weather matters a lot to outdoor activities whereas we can do indoor activities at any time of the year. Let’s talk about some of these leisure activities through this lesson.
E.g. – Seasonal activities such as summer sports, winter sports or wind sports
|Bowling||Summer sports||Winter sports||Wind sports|
|Card games||Swimming||Snowboarding||Sailing boats|
|Electronic and Video games||Water polo||Playing with a sledge||Flying kites|

Countries with unpredictable (changeable) weather, like in British Isles, need to beat the weather to do outdoor activities.
1) Building indoor swimming pools
2) Building indoor tennis courts
3) Building indoor ice-skating rinks
4) Building dry ski slopes for skiing or snowboarding etc.
Cardiff Millennium Stadium is one of the largest sports stadiums. It is the national stadium of Wales, located in the capital Cardiff. This stadium has a roof that can be slid across in bad weather, or opened in fine weather. Cardiff Millennium Stadium holds many large scale events, such as rugby, football, rally, speedway, boxing and many music concerts. It is very expensive and difficult to build such indoor stadiums as well as the maintenance (to look after/ repairs) cost is very high. There are only a few large sports stadiums in the world since all the countries cannot afford to build such indoor stadiums.
