"Sport pertains to any form of competitive physical activity or game that aims to use, maintain, or improve physical ability and skills while providing enjoyment to participants and, in some cases, entertainment to spectators."

Bowling, golf, and many other activities meet these criteria.

I have a friend whose daughter is on a full-ride scholarship for bowling.

I antagonize my hockey loving brother by telling him real sports use a ball. This would also affect curling and other winter sports.

haha. well, that would be more believable if NHL hockey wasn't pretty much the world's most difficult sport to be competitive in. it's like aliens invented that game.

I was surprised too. I don't know what school except it is in the midwest. She just graduated but has a year of NCAA eligibility left due to covid, so the school offered to let her complete her masters to stay.

We had a student graduate last year who received a full scholarship to Oklahoma State for Barrel Racing. We've had more kids get signed for Crew Rowing than football/baseball/basketball combined.

If it isn't, at least animals don't get killed in the process.

We watched bowling at the World Games in Birmingham last weekend. The exertion didn't seem to be at the same level of the Sumo wrestler's but they were sure throwing the balls hard. It's a sport.

My opinion may be from the gutter, so spare me your disagreeing opinion. Bowling is not a sport.

Fixed to make it a valid and ongoing argument amongst art purists.
