Aunt Sally

Aunt Sally is a traditional game, still played in many pubs in the Cotswolds and Oxfordshire area.

The dolly, a 10cm (4in) high ball or skittle,  is placed on a metal spike around a metre (40in) high. Players take it in turns to throw 6 sticks at the dolly. The aim is to knock the dolly off the spike without hitting the spike.

The Fox Inn supports an Aunt Sally team that plays in the Banbury & District Aunt Sally League.
