European Toad Championships
The hotly-contested European Toad Championships 2011 took place in Lewes a few days ago.
The world’s [aka Lewes’s] finest Toad-In-The-Hole athletes participated in the prestigious event, competing for the coveted toad trophy. For those of you unaware of this fine sport, it has been played in Sussex pubs for a good couple of hundred years. For a definitive history and rulebook check out past champion Ben Ward’s fascinating website.
Congratulations to Tim Walker who retook the title this year. Surely it’s only a matter of time before Toad achieves Olympic status.
