From the ECF site...

English Bridge Union v Sport England and others

The above case will be heard at the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London on 10.30 a.m. Tuesday 22nd September until Wednesday 23rd September. The matter to be decided is whether Bridge can be recognised as a Sport. The outcome of the case may have implications for the potential recognition of Chess as a Sport. Members of the public can attend.
