It'd be nice to see more popular sports (like in Endomondo):
- Ball sports: soccer, basketball, volleyball, rugby...- Racquet sports: tennis, table tennis, squash, badminton...- Equestrian: horse ride- Dancing- Sky sports: parachuting, paragliding, skydiving...
**Moderator's Edit from January 12, 2023** 9 New Sport Types were launched today! Make sure to update your Strava App to see them. Please refer to this comment for more information regarding requesting new sports going forward.
This post has been moved to another board.
I really would like to be able to track raquet sport activities as Tennis for instance is a major part of my workout routine. I realize that GPS milage is not going to work for calculating calories, etc... but it would be nice to get some ballpark tracking of days and duration.
Tennis for instance could have sub-types 'singles', 'doubles'. Typical singles match lasts 1.5hr, and is equiv of 5-6 miles of running .... doubles is about 2/3 the extertion of singles
Other raquet sports might have different formula for calories, but it would be nice to track days, times, share, follow , etc......
Agree, tennis should be in. Golf is in there and snowboarding but not tennis? 🙂
Please could your add tennis to your list of categories. It's such a popular sport and I run miles playing it but there's no accurate way of recording it.
I don't really care if the mileage is super accurate... I don't really want to carry my phone on the court. I would like to be able to plug in the time spent on the court, and use a 'perceived effort' formula to calculate approximate equivalent miles, or calories or something as there is a big difference between singles and doubles, or level of play.
....and what does it take to get a sport added? x number of responses?
+1 to more sport types
The iOS app was updated today and lists support for additional sports, including tennis which is great news! However, I do not see those options in the record or edit activity screens. Guess they'll be available sooner or later.
We are happy to announce that we have additional activity types! You can now record these additional activity types:
tennis, squash, racquetball, table tennis, badminton, HIIT, pilates, virtual rowing & pickleball
Check it out and record an activity today!
For any additional activities you would like to see on Strava, please check to see if others have suggested this idea and go ahead and add your vote by clicking on the kudos icon.
If the idea does not exist, please create a new idea. For more info on how to do this, please click here.
AWESOME, glad these sports have been added!
Do we need to 'update' Strava app on phone to see the new features?
Yes, please update your app to the most recent version in order to see the available new sports types!
Fantastic, @Scout - thank you for additions! It's really great Strava listens to the community 🙂
