Winter is coming... and I need an indoor sport to play. What sport can you recommend that is not fitness-as-sport (so weightlifting is out), not gear-heavy (hockey is out), not done totally solo (speed skating is out; interactive one-on-one competition like squash is OK), and works up a sweat (range shooting is out)?

I think quickly and have good reflexes. I am not strong and have below average coordination. The ideal sport would use my strengths and help improve my weaknesses.
Other considerations: I am a bad swimmer. I am young enough to take some bruising, but I don't want to get any concussions. I did not grow up athletic, so sports that people often start as teens and adults would be great (basketball is out).
Price: Helicopter racing is out of my range, but it doesn't have to be as cheap as running.
I know many martial arts probably meet the requirements. I would prefer ones that avoid blows to the head and don't have much skin-to-skin or skin-to-mat contact.
Indoor sports I have enjoyed: tennis, box lacrosse
Indoor sports I have not enjoyed: volleyball, dodgeball
