Teams from Norwich, Loddon, Bungay and Beccles will compete against invitation teams from Beccles Wine Vaults and The Wherry in Geldeston.

Held on Sunday, May 14, from midday, the game is played with one team joining hands to form a ring, with a member of the other side in the middle of the circle. They must put their beer soaked dwile on the end of a stick, and as they spin around attempt to hit an opponent. Points are scored depending on which body part is hit – but if the target is misses twice in a row then the competitor has to down a half of ale as quickly as possible.

Yanny Mac will be the Jobanowl, as teams vie for the coveted Stuart Sneddon Memorial Trophy.

There will also be music from Owl and Wolves and a family barbecue.
