FeatureLocal sports used to be really weird

From piano bashing to menagerie races.

Hello! Chris Donlan here. Simon Parkin and I recently attended a wonderful talk at Brighton's Catalyst Club, in which historian Mathew Homewood picked over some of the strangest sports in Sussex history. I think it's quite interesting to think of games as being related to this quirky lineage, and so I asked him to write a bit about bizarre and forgotten sports for Eurogamer. I really hope you enjoy it.
