The Great British Sport Of Wellie Wanging

Wellie Wanging, or throwing a rain boot over your shoulder, can be found at a variety of rural events across Great Britain. Wanging is popular at summer school fetes, weddings, village fairs or county shows.

A Wellie is short for Wellington Boot, named after the Duke of Wellington, who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The aim of the game is thus: launch a rain boot as far as possible. That's it.
