Sports for couples - easy to learn, cheap to play?!

Looking for ideas to get active, burn calories, and have some fun (while not feeling like I am working out). What are some fun games/sports for couples - thinking easy to learn, cheap to go get some used equipment, can play year round, and has accessible fields or courts around.

I was thinking maybe tennis or pickleball might be good.

We do play frisbee golf in summer/spring.

Any other ideas?

    It's been a few years but my wife and I use to go play/practice tennis on a somewhat regular basis which was a lot of fun. I tried to get her into golf but she lost interest before she finished her first bucket at the driving range.

    Hiking? I see TONS of couples climbing together. Any racquet sport. Dancing?

    This might be a little unconventional but it is sport-like. Pokemon Go on your phone. You walk to hatch eggs, get prizes for weekly km's, get items at Pokestops and gyms, and interact with your buddy Pokemon.

    Regarding locations, most downtown areas, parks, and shopping malls are good. Community days and raid hours at my local mall are usually big. During raid hours, there are raid walks that cover a few miles.

    I just played pickleball this last week for the first time. I think I could enjoy it. Also, I don't mind golfing, but would not go to the driving range. That doesn't interest me at all.

    My husband and I go ice skating, hiking, play tennis, throw a frisbee or a football around and play one on one basketball.

    We also took a boxing class which was wasn't for me, but I'm glad I tried it.

    badminton can be quite fun and you could do it on a tennis court.
