Sports consist of all the forms of competitive physical activities or games which aim to maintain and improve the physical ability and skills of the participants.
Sport is usually governed by a set of rules which make a competition fair and allow the adjudication of a winner.
The procedure of distinguishing sports to leisure activities differ between sources. SportAccord, the association of all the international sports federations, asserts that an activity to be defined as a sport should have an element of competition, shouldn’t harm any living creature, shouldn't rely on equipment provided by a single supplier and shouldn’t depend on luck.
As well as this distinction, this association divides sports into primarily physical activities such as rugby and athletic, primarily mind sports such as chess and go, predominately motorised activities such as Formula 1, primarily coordination exercises such as billiard sports, and primarily animal-supported activities such as equestrian sports.
With the development of digital, there has been an increase in the association of the term "sports" to activities such as video games. However, this notion of sports has not been accepted and recognised by mainstream sports organisations.
Outdoor recreation or outdoor activity relates to leisure pursuits which take place in natural environments, do not require any infrastructure, and may require large areas and unmodified natural landscapes.
Outdoor recreations also refer to activities which involve excitement and physical challenges. The most popular outdoor activities are backpacking, canoeing, canyoning, caving, climbing, hunting, hiking, hill walking, kayaking and rafting.
