    Quoits played on a village green in Surrey.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Sportshots No. 28. Popular sports & pastimes under the Cine-Camera lens - "Quoits". Described by Charles Eade of the Sunday Express.'

    Wanersh (?), Surrey.

    Brief shots of the picturesque village of Wanersh (? cannot find in atlas). Several shots of some men playing quoits on the village green; a small crowd watches. Clay marks out the area of play; a pin is put into the clay and the men have to throw heavy iron quoits as near to the pin as possible, standing 18 yards away. A young boy writes down the score.

    The champion of the county is seen throwing his quoit in slow motion. A brief shot of reverse footage shows the quoit flying back into the hand of the champion.
