Every year the Greyhound pub in Tinsley Green takes a popular playground game to its most competitive level. The British and World Marbles Championship attracts 100 competitors in around 20 teams, with team and individual titles up for grabs.
The tournament in its current guise has been played since 1932, although evidence suggests that the game has been played here for more than 200 years. You don't need to be a professional player to participate, but if you want to compete it is advisable to book your place in advance.
