Kurling, carpet bowls or table tennis
The Norfolk Village Games Roadshow came to Old Buckenham Village Hall for a couple of hours this afternoon. This was a chance to try out some different sports and people of all ages dropped in to try them out.
Kurling was probably the most popular (the Olympic effect?). There was obviously no ice but these little 'stones' had wheels underneath and needed a good push to propel them across the hall floor. Even the youngest players knew all the jargon as they sent down their final stone to clinch the game.
Other families were introduced to the joys of carpet bowls, a sport played regularly in the hall, and they soon realised that it required a greater amount of skill than they first thought.
Later in the year, on Sunday 27 April, the Roadshow will be back and will involve sports that can be played outdoors.
