Tennis is not a sport; it's akin to ice skating which is also as well as not a sport

Re: The question on the Nation's lips ...

Can some one explain the difference between Game & Sport.
am not a followere of cricket, football, tennis or owt else of a similar nature, never placed a bet on any thing in my life. only ever seen one football match & that was when I was a kid, couldn't see any point to it.
22 blokes chasing an inflated pigs bladder, two bloke in black running up and down each side wavin flags, and one bloke in the middle blowin a bloody whistle and arguing with every one.

Re: The question on the Nation's lips ...

Football is a "sport", athletics are a "sport".

Each sport is played in a series of "game's".

Tennis is broken down into sets, matches and overall game.

Some sports do not have games - like motorsports - they have races instead.

Re: The question on the Nation's lips ...

Continued membership of the European Union by the UK seems to be in question (again). Is it a 'game' or a 'sport'?
