Well that doesn't make sense. How do you make a league out of something that isn't even a sport?

A sport is defined by something that has two opposing sides (at least) and has an ability to be scored. Paint Ball has both qualifying material

But it's not a sport because cup stacking.

Also, chess.

lol so point being anything can be made into a sport, even the most ridiculous pointless things. So something like paintball is a more valid sport than many others.

I think the point is that it's all based on perception.

The term "sport" has such a broad definition that it can be applied to just about every game or competition out there. If you think paintball is a sport then good for you, but other people may not be so inclined.

I think a sport needs to be team-based, have codified rules governed by a central officiating body and be played by more than a niche community in a limited area.

So, by these qualifications, paintball is a sport. It's team-based, has a governing body and is fairly wide-spread.

But the game you made up that one summer called "Bleep-Bloop" and six people know about it is not.
