Oldschool Garden Games!

Posted on

If you have a long garden then this one’s for you!
Some of you may have hard of a game called Nipsey, which was particularly popular in South Yorkshire. The little wooden egg shaped ball was balanced on a brick and then chipped into the air by clipping the edge with the bat. As the ball shoots in the air you simply have to hit as far as you can. Nicknamed ‘poor man’s golf’, the longest single hit is rumoured to be 208 yards.
Do you remember playing this game?
