Yes it is considered a sport.

To bob

I'm thinking about bobbym's statement that it is considered a sport.It gives me an idea that he might be something like a chess player or a ballet dancer or something like that.

hi Stefy,

Yes, it might. We need a good question to home in on the right area. Asking things like "Is it table tennis?" could waste a lot of questions. note to bobbym: that was NOT a question!
