[ Tilting at the ring .... once the sport of nobles ]
When the nobility gave up the sport, the people kept the tradition alive. That is why any self-respecting town has its own tournament of tilting at the ring -an annual event that ensures a wonderful, exiting time for competitors and spectators alike.

The Games were only national in nature and the events were more those of a British medieval country fair enriched by modern athletic sports disciplines. The original events in Á850 consisted of cricket, Á4-a-side football, high and long jumping, quoits, a hopping race, and a running race.
However, several athletic events were added in the next few years.
The most popular event became tilting-at-the-ring, which was Þrst held in Á858.
The competitors, dressed in medieval costumes, rode horses, and used lances to spear a small ring, suspended from a bar over the course.
