What is the word for the fear of viewing sports or playing sports?

sportsphobiaIt is not sportsphobia. That mixes Latin with Greek words which you should try to avoid in compound words.The word 'sport' comes from from Old French desporter(des- 'away' + porter 'carry') which is in turn from the Latin word portare, to carry).The word 'phobia' is the Greek word for fear, so you cannot mix the two.Sp, to work out the name of any phobia, you need to find the name of the thing that is feared in Greek (for example spider in Greek is arakhne, so the fear of spiders is arachno-phobia).The Greek for sport is athletikos (which originally meant to compete for a prize), so a fear of sports is athletikophonia.I mean here ancient Greek of course, as in modern Greek the word 'spor' is also used for sport.
