Ancient Egyptian Sports : Tug of Hoop


Tug of Hoop

Ancient Egyptian Sports-Tug of Hoop


This is an ancient Egyptian game in which two players compete in pulling the hoop swiftly. Each contestant fixes a hooked staff to hinder any snatch of the hoop by the other player. This game needs sharp physical maneuvers and strict observation, particularly because the hooked staff is used both to pull the hoop and support it from falling flat on the floor.
