TRADITIONAL 9 PIN SKITTLE ALLEY AT THE CROWN INN
Come and have a go at traditional pub skittles on offer at The Crown Inn.
3 Balls at 9 Skittles.
TRADITIONAL AUNT SALLY AT THE FOOTBALL & CRICKET CLUB
The game bears some resemblance to a coconut shy or skittles, but with teams. Each team consists of eight players.
The ball is on a short plinth about 100 to 150 mm high x 75mm diameter, known as the "dolly", which is placed on a dog-legged metal spike about 750mm to 1000mm high. Players throw sticks or short battens (450 x 50mm) at the dolly, trying to knock it off without hitting the spike. Successfully hitting the dolly off is known as a "doll"; however if the spike is hit first, then the score does not count and is called an "iron"
TRADITIONAL TABLE TOP (CHEESE) SKITTLES AT THE NELSON CLUB
This is a variation on traditional 9 Pin skittles where the skittles are a lot smaller and stood on a table which is closed on three sides. The idea of the game is much the same as traditional Skittles but rather than using a ball to knock down the skittles, you use a cheese which is a hard round disc.

PÉTANQUE AT THE FOOTBALL & CRICKET CLUB
Pétanque is a french version of bowls, the idea is to throw your ball (boule) closest to the jack (coche)
