"Quoits" in context

Quoits is an old sport which is still being played today in some parts of the world. It originates from a game played by ancient Greeks and Romans, and later adopted by the British. The game is fairly simple, and involves throwing a rope ring, usually a seasoned rope, so it lands over a spike or pin.

The game can be very competitive, and experienced players can hurl the ring over great distances.
