We finally beat the Germans at a sport

April 10th, 2013

What sport is that, you ask?

Marbles, I answer.

That’s right, we’re stooping to marbles to pinch a gloat about beating our fiercest continental rivals. Let’s face it, it’s going to be a long while before we celebrate victory against them on the football pitch again.

The World Marble Championships were held at The Greyhound pub in Tinsley Green, Sussex, seeing the Black Dog team take the title by beating off competition from their German rivals and holders of the cup, 1st MC Erzgebirge. The victory for the British team captured their 13th World Championship win.

The international tournament has a rich history and it is thought that the venue for the marbles has been used since the 16th century, bringing spectators and competitors from across the world to The Greyhound carpark.

Well done to the British victors, the Black Dog!
