Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Sport has been practiced within societies for millennia. However, while some believe that the role which sport plays is of great importance, others feel that its only function is leisure. I tend to agree with the former view, and this essay will support my opinion via a discussion of both sides.
On the one hand, those who argue that sport has no more significant purpose than as a recreational activity might point to its essentially trivial nature. They may suggest that, since all sports are, at root, games involving physicality, their role in society cannot be of any substance. For instance, people enjoy doing and watching sports as a way to enjoyably pass the time, but this is the extent of sport’s societal influence. If all sports vanished from society tomorrow, the only consequence would be that people would need to find another way to fill the time.
On the other hand, my view is that sports also provide crucial physical and psychological health benefits for society. To begin with the former, the evidence for sport’s impact on physical health is vast and undeniable. To illustrate, doing sports on a regular basis can help to control blood sugar levels, improve heart function and lower the risk of cancer. As for the latter, sport has been shown to enhance resilience, reduce stress, and boost selfesteem. As a society is only as healthy as its members, it must be concluded that sport’s impact on personal health proves its vital role in society as more than simply as leisure activity.
In conclusion, because of the sizeable influence which sport can have on public health, I would agree with those who argue that its role in society is much more substantial than a simple pastime.
