R (on the application of English Bridge Union Ltd) v English Sports Council (Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport intervening)

Gaming – Card games. The claimant English Bridge Union sought judicial review of the defendant English Sports Council's adoption of a definition of 'sport', which incorporated physical activity. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the defendant's adoption of the definition of 'sport' had been in line with both a proper interpretation of s 3 of the Physical Training and Recreation Act 1937, and a proper construction of the objects and powers contained within its Royal Charter.
