Target and driving games include sports such as bowling, billiards, boules, bowling. The sports alternative games, fit through play and skat are assigned to other games.


The high challenge character of the sports games arises from a complex structure. Technical-tactical and coordinative skills and abilities have to be learned and applied. In addition, conditional and psychological factors have an influence on game performance. In the sports game’s courses, qualified instructors are engaged at the respective levels (beginners, advanced, free play), who, in addition to training the above-mentioned factors, do not neglect the fun of the game and the social togetherness. The sports games are played as singles, doubles or teams. This creates emotional and tense game situations, which allow a good break from everyday life and have a positive effect on health. Those who develop an increased interest in regular sporting competitions in the university sports courses can also find out about club membership in one of the sports games departments at the university sports club.
