Abstract: The definition of the concept of leisure sport is still quite ambiguous nowadays, which affects the devel-opment of leisure sport. By analyzing and studying the relations between leisure sport and the degree of social de-velopment, cultural level, leisure time, activity space, goal, experience and exercise strength, the author found that the said elements are not the necessary conditions for constituting leisure sport. The connotation of leisure sport is people’s experience of “being human”, which is formed via bodily sports activities.
Key words: sport sociology；leisure sport；experience of “being human”
