individual or group recreational activities, usually physical, which involve interpersonal or intergroup competition, contests with nature (e.g. hunting), or the more general exercise of physical skills. While sports often take the form of‘games’, not all games are sports (e.g. card games, various games of chance and strategy). Sport occurs in most societies. However, most modern forms of organized sport have their origins in the latter half of the 19th century, although some of these, such as horse racing, boxing, cricket and football have a much longer history. In modern societies the role of sport – including spectator and televised sport – is a significant one. See also SOCIOLOGY OF SPORT, PLAY, LEISURE.

What does it mean when you dream about sports?

Dreaming of participating in a sport may suggest that the dreamer is in excellent physical condition or needs some exercise or recreation.


a. an animal or plant that differs conspicuously in one or more aspects from other organisms of the same species, usually because of a mutation
b. an anomalous characteristic of such an organism


Playing sports may represent some aspects of the way that we run our lives, or may refer to internal struggles where one part of the dreamer’s psyche or personality is attempting to “win” over another. At times life is like a challenging sport. We compete, try to win, and attempt to develop our abilities so that we will succeed. In the dream, the outcome of the game may say something about how well we are doing. Do we feel competent and successful, are we playing fair, or is the sport more competitive than what we are comfortable with? In order to understand the dream, consider the details and attempt to identify what in daily life creates similar emotions. All sports and games have specific rules and boundaries. Your performance within this framework may represent the struggle against inner conflicts such individual fears and weaknesses, or may be referring to a pragmatic problem or situation at work or in your relationships.
