    Is playing badminton a hobby, a game or a sport? Many thanks.

    Re: hobby, game, sport

    Yes, it is. (That's a somewhat snarky way to say "it's all three.") We're less likely to call it a sport than the other two but all three descriptors are possible.

    Strictly speaking, playing badminton is an activity. Badminton is a game, a hobby (for some people) and a sport.
    I am not a teacher.
