same as with many other sports. The word is of course vague and will mean different things to different people. But basically it is intended to refer to people that get out occasionally and who don't have expectations of getting "serious" yet. Serious just means that you have plans to focus a lot on skills with 'substantial' goals in mind. There is no clear line in any sport between recreational and serious and often one becomes serious later. Recreational is not quite the same as beginner as a beginner may start with serious goals and start right off with lots of classes and gear that they will struggle with at first while acquiring skills. Likewise you can have someone that has been at it for many years but at a very casual level and so is an experienced but still recreational participant.
