Orkney: New Year's Day Ba' Game

Sport & Leisure

Various Venues, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1DN
    A loose form of early football, where the men of the town, or the Uppies play the Doonies. The Ba' is thrown in the air to be caught by the waiting scrum of up to 350 men who must try to run with it to their goal. The Uppies goal is opposite the Catholic Church while the Doonies must dunk the Ba' in the waters of Kirkwall Bay to win.
