Stretch your legs; the eHarmony guide to sporty Leicester Dating

Leicester, you sporty devils, not satisfied with being the UK’s most athletic city, you’ve been named 2008 European City of Sport. In the spirit of such an honour, this got us thinking here at eHarmony - have you ever considered a sports-orientated date? It makes sense; exercise releases endorphins, endorphins make us happy. Your date can associate this happiness with you! We’ve comprised a list of sporty activities to impress the lad or lady in your life whilst dating in Leicester.

1. Get the BOKWA buzz!

If there’s one thing the modern woman loves, it’s those faddy exercise crazes, (Zumba, anyone?) But before you wrinkle your nose in disgust remember, there’s a reason they’re so popular: they really are fun! Bokwa is – and I quote – ‘the fitness class with the nightclub feel.’ Regardless of whether you are one of those Leicester singles who can be found doing your best Beyonce on the dance floor, or rather a person who prefers to stand in a corner nodding your head - we know that BOKWA will leave you feeling uplifted, invigorated and all the more connected to your date.

2. Welford Road Stadium

An evening watching a group of big, burly men, tackling each other 50 feet below. Not quite what you had in mind when you pictured a romantic Leicester dating experience? Don’t be so quick to judge, if the guy or girl you’re dating is a Tigers fan – it’s sure to go down a storm. But even if not, the atmosphere, electricity and passion are palpable at a thing like this – it’s sure to rub off on you pair of lovebirds. If it’s winter bring along thick coats, a thermos of hot toddy and use it as an excuse to get a little closer to one of your matches.

3. Ain’t no mountain high enough

Women seek courage and dependability in a suitor, and a lot of men like to show off! So affirm both with a date to Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Climbing Centre. Whether you’re scooting up the wall like spiderman, or tenderly trying your best, chances are your date will be very impressed. Oh, just be sure to check your match isn’t afraid of heights first. 

4. Kick around in the park

A lot of Leicester singles don’t want every date to be adrenaline fuelled or full or glamour – they appreciate the simpler things in life too and more often than not, they’re looking for a laidback match who knows how to have a good time enjoying those free dating pursuits. So next time the suns out, grab a football (or badminton rackets, if you’d prefer something a little less testing), a cooler filled with beer and (fancy) sandwiches and head out to Abbey Park. After you’ve let each other win a couple matches, take a walk through the lavender maze, the ornamental gardens and the friendship gardens; wander around aimlessly and use the opportunity to have a good old chat.
