QUOITS COMPETITION TRADITIONAL SPORT UK

Quoits competition Snape North Yorkshire circa 1990. Quoits is a traditional game which involves the throwing of metal, rope or rubber rings over a set distance, usually to land over or near a spike (sometimes called a hob, mott or pin).  It is not until the 19th century that the game is documented in any detailed way. The official rules first appeared in the April 1881 edition of The Field, having been defined by a body formed from pubs in Northern England.<br />
