This paper is devoted to spaces utilised in competitive sport and sport for all. Extra-mural sport spaces were taken into account. Several sporting disciplines need their own spaces, while others can use multi-sport spaces. There are spaces for ground sports (on the ground and under the ground), water sports (on and below the water surface) utilising water spaces (aquains), air sports utilising low and high air spaces (airains), and cosmic spaces (sub-cosmic and on the Earth orbit), especially at the space stations where astronauts train in order to have fit bodies. Almost every sport space is improved by engineering input.
