Probably disagrees with common logic, but a lot of Sports TV Networks consider both Chess and Poker to be sports, which by the fallacy of Appealing to Authority(and because I do think they both are sports despite this), I'll say this can be extended to competitive games.

In the case of field archery, it's much closer to a game, as the exact rules change from organisation to organisation, and the circumstances surrounding the game are always different.
