Sport has always been a divisive issue and there are many people who simply don’t like the very idea of sport. It makes them feel uncomfortable and causes them to have a difficult time enjoying certain sporting activities and events. However, many organisations like Sport England still try to see if an activity fits this description when deciding whether or not they acknowledge it as a sport if they consider it as such.
But this hasn’t stopped the argument from going on. Darts is still a bone of debate within the debate about what constitutes a sport, especially as the game continues to be a popular sporting activity. Although it is widely seen as a game, some say it isn’t a sporting activity because it doesn’t involve any physical contact, which is seen as a bad thing by many. To them, the sport can only be defined by physical contact such as kicking a ball, contact with an opponent or collision. This definition excludes a lot of popular sports such as swimming and cycling.
So, what is the answer then for people who don’t like the term sport? For them, the key to understanding sport is to look at the physical aspect. As well as looking at the skills involved with participating in a sporting activity, they should also look at the mental aspects. After all, participation in sport requires the individual to have both the physical dexterity and the mental acuity to succeed and enjoy themselves. By focusing on the skills and the mental aspects of participation, you can ensure fair competition and a fun environment for everyone.
