Kungsbacka Things to Do
Play bowling, squash or simulator golf
The squash hall in Kungsbacka has become better and better the last couple of years. It's quite a popular place, but still not so popular that one will have problem to get a time.
There are around 12-14 bowling courses, where one can play both day- and evening. Friday and Saturday they have moonlight bowling, which cost a bit extra but is a lot of fun.
Normal days the fee is 170 SEK/hour (18 euro). Moonlight bowling costs 230-300 SEK instead.
There are also some squash courses. 80 SEK/45 minutes to rent them, and one can also borrow equipment at the place.
What I like most, but what I haven't been able to try here yet, is the golf simulator. It might feel a bit stupid to hit the golf ball into the wall five meters away, but at the same time it's a great chance to be able to play 52 famous courses over the world. At least in a simulator that is.
Cost is 200-250 SEK/hour.
This is a quite popular thing, so it could be a good idea to call and make an appointment ahead.Related to:

Kungsbacka Sports & Outdoors
A sport city!
Kungsbacka is a quite big sport town, even if there aren’t even one team in the first league, in any sport, from here. But there is a tennis club, about six-seven different football clubs, two ice hockey teams, two floorball teams (one of them actually played in the first league just a few years ago) and there are also 4-5 golf courses around the city. Not to mention the dance courses, the badminton lane, mini golf, and the horse riding.
And it’s also easy to just have fun with a football game or something, without joining a club. There are plenty of fields in this city to use for free.
“Inlag” is the biggest sport centre in Kungsbacka, with two stadiums for ice hockey, a swimminghall, and close to that place eight big football fields, which for example are used by the Gothia Cup, the world’s biggest football tournament for youths, during one hot week in July.
There are two tennis halls in Kungsbacka, with 4 course indoor, and another 4 outdoor. There are also other courts in the city, but to play there you’ll have be a member.
Just remember to bring a racket, since you can’t borrow one there.Related to:
