Battle Marbles

Battle Marbles

Near to Battle Abbey, teams will compete in the annual marbles competition on Good Friday (14 April).

Local pubs and clubs entering teams of five players may compete in both the marbles and the fancy dress competitions.

Approximately 20 teams are expected to take part with ‘flick-off’ at 10am.

In particular, the fancy dress competition becomes ever more competitive and in previous year's the Lego Men and the Fruit and Veg teams drew the best response as a result of many hours of secret inventiveness. 

Teams must pre-register as you are unable to enter on the day.

If you are not a member of a team you can always try your luck on the ‘all-comers board’ for spectators of all ages.

Cups and medals will be handed out at noon.
