Paintball is a sport because it involves physical exertion and skill is needed and is also played as a team sport

"Paintball is a sport because it involves physical exertion and skill is needed and is also played as a team sport"
My opponent has said that physical exertion, skill, and the team playing makes it a sport. I would like my opponent to explain how one equals another? Also, Readers, grammar point please.

Lets look at the definition of Game, (according to http://dictionary.reference.com... ) "a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators." So if a group of friends wanted to play paintball, this would be what they are doing, no? Yet sport, as part of it"s definition (according to http://dictionary.reference.com... ) includes this: "often of a competitive nature" Yet the vast majority of paintball is for PLEASURE, not for WINNING. You get no prize, nothing that would make it competitive.

Whoops, didn't know it was 1k limit!
