What constitutes a sport? – BBC News

The judge said Sport England’s current policy defined sport as involving “physical activity” and its move to reject reclassification of bridge was correct. During the case, Sport England argued that bridge was no more a sporting activity than “sitting at home, reading a book”. Speaking after the decision, Sport England’s director of sport, Phil Smith, said: “Our job is to help the nation to be more physically active. We recognise that many people enjoy playing bridge, but that’s not going to play a part in the fight against inactivity.”
