Indoor Sports in Australia

Indoor sport offers people of all ages who love the excitement of team and individual sports, a chance to play in an indoor environment for fitness and fun all year round!

Whether you’re just looking for fun, or are after competitive sports with organised leagues and competitions, indoor sports are a great way to stay fit and develop your skills.

In Australia, we are lucky to have access to dozens of different indoor sports, throughout all seasons of the year. Some sports that are played on outdoor courts or grounds during summer, like netball, basketball and cricket, have indoor versions played on indoor courts in wetter seasons. These indoor versions of the sport are often played on smaller size courts, so have fewer team members and are faster paced.

If you’re after a more relaxed indoor sport, there are also multitudes of choices, including bowling, darts, swimming, rockclimbing and bouldering.

So what are you waiting for? There’s sure to be an indoor sports venue near you!
