Golf?

Actually I think its almost any sport at amateur level that doesn't involve teams. Don't see many umpires on the Tennis courts in the local rec, or at the Squash courts in the Sports centre for example.

But, unlike sailing, there will be a umpire for any organised tournament, however small/low key. Two people playing an informal game on the municipal courts (or even a 'friendly' game at the Tennis club) is more akin to us just going for a blast about down at the lake when there is no racing.

or a PY race ... sort of like a competitive pastime rather than a real sporting experience.

Not true. You have to be an LTA member to play league tennis, but it is not necessary or common to have an umpire at matches, even/especially junior matches. Unfortunately there are always some kids who take terrible advantage of this, but it teaches a valuable lesson I suppose.
