Yes I do. Then again I was one of those kids in Chess Club back in grammar school.

We got to the Team States Comp once, my school. We came in low but I enjoyed it. When I got to high school there wasn't a chess club, I wouldn't have joined it anyway.

I don't see why not. Wikipedia calls sports "an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively." Including physical, mental, and motor sports.

my definition of 'sport' is that it has to require at least some physical ability .

Otherwise it's just a competitive game.

By that definition, any form of competition is a sport. Hell, playing the lottery is a sport according to that definition.

Sports are physical. Chess is not.

playing the lottery wouldn't really be classed as a sport because it isn't physically/mentally demanding.

The lottery is classed as gambling. As there is no skill involved.

Cards and monopoly are games.
Racing involves physical activity so is a sport.
