I'm not sure if this is the right stack; let me know if this question is best suited elsewhere.
I quite like a variety of activities and sports which involve precise throwing or hitting, such as tennis, frisbee, and throwing darts. However, I don't like bending over to pick up the object every time I fail - missing a catch, ending a rally, botching a throw, etc. Bending over a bunch makes my stomach hurt a little and hinders my enjoyment of the activities.
For this reason, I've found myself gravitating towards rope dart, a flow art which never requires you to bend over to pick it up. I quite like rope dart (and the idea of object manipulation skills in general), but something within me craves a longer reach (rope darts are traditionally about 3 meters long). I want to be able to send an object farther, but still not have to walk over and slowly bend over to pick it up every time.
This got me thinking - what is the longest range activity that doesn't necessitate me bending over a lot?
Activities should be assessed by these criteria:
long reach - I want to be able to send something far
minimal bending over required - any sort of frequent picking up by hand of a ball or object is a no-go. It's ok if it's needed sparingly, but this should be true without needing high skill (e.g. frisbee technically doesn't need bending over, but only if you're good). Picking up with feet or some tool is ok, as long as it's not very challenging to do so
Bonus points if these are met, but not required:
both solo and group-based activities are acceptable, though I'd prefer solo activities
I'd prefer minimal walking, as that also hinders the emotional momentum. For example, golf requires little bending over, but takes forever walking between strokes (sans golf cart)
Creative or obscure activities are welcome too!
