• Sport: an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc. 2. a particular form of this, esp. in the out of doors. 3. diversion; recreation; pleasant pastime This mostly points to more active sports, but the first definition says 'requiring skill' and chess does definatly do that. And since you are competeing I would consider chees a sport.
  • Sport best involves physical competition where it is a test of both skill and prowess. Anything else is usually considered a game.
  • I'm totally with you on this. According to the Oxford English Dictionary a sport is a "Pleasant pastime; entertainment or amusement; recreation, diversion" unfortunate, eh?
  • To me if there's no running, jumping or hitting involve you are not playing a sport
