7 Ideas for a Sporty Stag Do!

You're the best man and planning a stag do. Yes, you could just sit in a pub all weekend before a quick lap dance and kebab. Or you could give your soon-to-be wed old mucker a great send-off from single life with an action packed sport-themed stag do. Here's some awesome ideas to get you thinking.



Hit the links on a lad's golfing break

Hit the links on a lad's golfing break

This can be the perfect opportunity to combine some fun and banter with a bit of a competitive edge. Whether budding Rory mcIlroy's or proud hacker, golf days always provide plenty to chat, brag or bitch about in the bar afterwards. TIP: If you've got a decent sized group why not play a game of blind fourball? Best man randomly draws out pairings (who don't play together) but doesn't tell anyone who their partner is. The random pair with the best combined score wins!

A Day at the Races

Get track-side for punt at the sport of kings. Wherever you decide upon your weekend away you'll invariably be close to a horse racing venue. You can select a routine meeting at one of the 58 race tracks across the UK or, for a truly memorable experience book up for one of the big festivals of the year.

Quad Biking

4 chunky wheels, a crash helmet and some bumpy terrain before you; looks like it's time for some quad biking action. Head out on a quad safari, tearing over the undulating ground, holding on as you take that sharp bend, trying not to come a cropper like Dave just did in front of you. Then dust yourself off and get into town to boast of your off-road exploits to anyone who cares to listen (i.e. no-one!).

See the world's best football in La Liga

Football is the big daddy of our sporting diet and what could be a better, more enthralling way to indulge yourself on a stag do than to head over to Spain for the weekend for a bit of sun, a lot of late night clubbing and a chance to catch sight of some of the world's greatest footballers displaying their skills in a Spanish League match. Watch Messi, Ronaldo, Bale, Suarez et al? Don't mind if we do.

White Water Rafting

Whether you're going abroad or staying in the UK for your stag do, white water rafting offers a seriously wild experience for stag, best man and mates. Plunging together through icy, raging rapids along a river or canyon is a test of nerve and endurance that can give you all a major buzz and really make that beer taste good later on. And, if you're not keen on heading out into the country for your stag do, then why not look at some city based man-made options such as the Cardiff International White Water Rafting Centre for thrills within minutes of your hotel and the clubs?

Wakey Wakey - it's time for Wakeboarding!

Water-skiing for the masses, wakeboarding is a seriously thrilling activity that'll have you all pumped up and, naturally, laughing at your mate's inadequacies. Basically you get strapped to a snowboard and pulled along the water by a motor boat at high speeds - so grab on tight or take the plunge. Another activity that can be done at home or abroad this is a brilliant and ever more popular way of breaking up the time on an overseas stag do to places such as Madrid, Barcelona, the Algarve or other sun-drenched holiday hotspots on the continent.


Paintballing - this means war!

Paintballing - this means war!

It's an old favourite of the stag do agenda but still one that gets the adrenaline pumping and the heart racing as you don your fatigues, lock and load your paint-based weaponry and head out into the woods for some not-so-serious war gaming. With venues throughout the UK this is often paired up with other outdoor acivities (clay pigeon shooting, quads, archery etc) to give you a full day before the nocturnal action gets under way.
