TOP 10 Nintendo Switch Sports Games

10. Sports Party

Ubisoft’s answer to Wii Sports, Sports Party turns popular sports such as frisbee, basketball, golf and skateboarding into fun party games.

Throw in an intuitive track building feature, and you’ve got the best two-wheeled racer on the Switch.

8. Fitness Boxing

Unlike the former, you only need your Joy-Cons to get started, and after a slow start you’ll soon be working up a sweat jabbing, ducking and uppercutting. Featuring 20 chart-topping tracks to keep in time to, it’s a great way to stay fit at home.
