I'm speaking as a regular user here despite that "staff" label next to my name. Scope is decided by communities, not imposed from above.
I think science-based questions about sports, like golf in low-gravity or sailing in high atmospheric pressure or fishing in waters of different composition, etc, are all in scope here. As with all other questions, include enough details about your environment, and your question, that people can answer.
Open-ended discussions or questions that are too broad aren't a good fit for the Q&A format, because each response probably needs to add some starting assumptions and those will be all over the board -- it's hard to find an on-target answer amidst all the discussion.
But this doesn't mean this community can't host such content if people want. Q&A is a core feature of Codidact but not the only possibility. If this community wants to have a blog where individuals can explore topics like this, it can. If the community wants a category for open-ended, not-really-answerable discussions of broad premises, it can. If it wants to structure this some other way, it can.
