Shanghai's Best Indoor Sports Venues

Play inside during the cold winter months

Cold weather is no excuse for just sitting on the couch and ordering food from Sherpa everyday for three months. Here's a list of indoor spaces in Shanghai for you to keep from building the great waistline of China.



Cages Bar and Sport

Cages Bar and Sport in Jing'an, Shanghai


Where: Cages Bar and Sport, 3/F Jing'an Sports Centre, 428 Jiangning Lu (near Wuding Lu)

Pricing: Batting cages, squash, bubble football, hockey slapshot are RMB20-RMB800, everything else is free (except the beer).

The new Cages in Jing’an almost makes the rest of this list unnecessary. It features five batting cages, an ice hockey slapshot zone, two squash courts, six dartboards (real and electronic), one bubble football/mixed use area, one bocce/boules ball pitch, two cornhole courts and a heavy bag for practicing your boxing. Oh yeah, it's also a gigantic bar.



Stampede Karting [This venue is closed]

Go-karts at Stampede Karting, Shanghai


Where: Stampede Karting, Basement Section C, Bailian Shopping Center, 1288 Zhenguang Lu (near Meichuan Lu)

Pricing: RMB80 regular kart, RMB120 "fast and furious"

Ever wanted to pretend you’re an F1 driver? Live the dream (sort of) at this 5,000-square-meter go-kart track, the largest in Asia. Revel in the glory of leaving your friends in a trail of dust, or try to beat your own lap record. No winner’s champagne, but if you like, you can pop a Tsingtao for victory.



Shanghai Stadium Rock-Climb Sports Center

Rock climbing at Shanghai Stadium Rock-Climb Sports Center


Where: Shanghai Stadium Rock-Climb Sports Center, 666 Tianyaoqiao Lu (near Lingling Lu)

Pricing: RMB50 weekdays, RMB80 weekends 

Channel your inner Spider-Man by scaling China's biggest and best equipped indoor climbing gym. They've charted 100+ climbing routes across a 900-square-meter wall and a team of instructors are on hand to belay and provide training for less experienced climbers. Shoes and harnesses are availalble for rent, RMB5 and RMB10 respectively.



Jump 360

Trampolines at Jump 360, Shanghai


Where: Jump 360, 1408 Jidi Lu (near Jizhan Lu)

Pricing: RMB98 weekdays, RMB198 weekends

It's a gigantic space full of trampolines. What's not to love? Check out the free running (or parkour, if you will) platforms, obstacle courses and basketball nets and you’ll find that working out can actually be fun. The only downside: it’s far from downtown.



Big E

Glow-in-the-dark mini golf at Big E


Where: Big E, B2/F, 855 Pudong Nan Lu (near Dongchang Lu)

Pricing: RMB100 during work days, RMB200 during weekends/holidays

Big E is a giant glow in the dark playground. Go for the themed laser tag and archery, stay for the air hockey tables at the bar. It's best to go on the weekend and pay a little extra, as RMB200 includes free play all day in laser tag and all-you-can-drink soft drinks and Snow beer. 



Hao’s Bowling Alley

Hao's Bowling on Zhaojiabang Lu, Shanghai


Where: Hao's Bowling Alley, 128 Zhaojiabang Lu (near Ruijin Nan Lu)

Pricing: RMB178-RMB180 per hour on weekdays, RMB178-RMB230 per hour on weekends (more expensive during peak hours)


We can get behind any sport that not only allows but encourages the consumption of beer. This new-ish bowling recently hosted the bowling World Cup (yes there is one) and is located inside the Luwan Sports Center. It’s a family friendly place, complete with kids’ lanes and a patio.



Jing'an Badminton Gymnasium

Jing'an Badminton Gymnasium in Shanghai


Where: Jing'an Badminton Gymnasium, 5/F 165 Changhua Lu (near Wuding Lu)

Pricing: RMB40-RMB50 per hour (price differs on peak hours/weekdays/weekends)

One of the most popular sports in China, you can find folks having a game on a busy sidewalk or in the lobby of an apartment condo. If you like the privacy and warmth of an indoor court though, the Jing’an Badminton Gym is one of the nicest and cleanest ones in town. 



East Shanghai Shooting and Archery Club

East Shanghai Shooting and Archery Club


Where: East Shanghai Shooting and Archery Club, 663 Hongqiao Lu (near Panyu Lu)

Pricing: RMB10 per bullet (shooting range), RMB25 per 12 arrows

Blow off some steam with lethal missile weapons at this competition-level range. You can choose from a variety of .22 caliber pistols and rifles or practice your marksmanship with a bow and arrow. Club amenities also include a massage parlor and KTV, of course. Be sure to bring your passport/ID.



Shanghai LINK Parkour Training Facility, Jinqiao

Shanghai LINK Parkour Training Facility at Jinqiao, Pudong District


Where: Shanghai LINK Parkour Training Facility, No. 59, Bldg. 1, 2622 Jinqiao Lu (near Jinxiu Dong Lu)

Pricing: RMB80 open gym, RMB200 per class

This is where you practice all of those bone breaking parkour moves before your ready to hit the streets. It features a variety of bars, walls, blocks, precipes, and chasms that you climb, vault, jump over and more. Pricing varies depending on how intense you go. 



All Star Skating Club

All Star Skating Club at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, Shanghai


Where: All Star Skating Club, B2/F, Mercedes-Benz Arena, 1200 Expo Avenue (near Zhoujia Du Lu)

Pricing: RMB60 for 90 mins in the day, RMB80 for 90 mins in the evening (includes skates)

Formerly the Century Star Skating Club (which has since relocated just down the street), this huge ice rink is in the Mercedes-Benz Arena and is big enough for you to fall on your face in your own personal space (unless you go on a weekend, when it's crowd, then you WILL be embarrassed).

Sports and activity both are beneficial for us, it helps to improve our fitness and stamina. Most probably, we used to play on the ground which indicates both outdoor and indoor grounds. Here also, we can get some beautiful collection of indoor sports venue which looks attractive and beneficial for the players. It took a long time period to build an indoor sports venue, but before building this venue we should keep certain things in our mind about the flooring and interiors so that it provides good atmosphere as well as safety. This indoor sports venue looks amazing and I really impressed to find all the activities playing in a single venue. http://www.slideshare.net/acesurfaces/different-indoor-basketball-options-you-should-know-about
