World Championship for throwing eggs

It is believed that the throwing of eggs, as a sport, appeared as early as 1322, when, under the royal order, a new abbot was appointed to the parish of Suoton. They say that he was the only one who had chickens, and he invited his parishioners to give everyone eggs for each trip to the church. However, when the Eau River burst its banks, people could not get into the church, and the monks began to throw eggs to the peasants who were waiting for them. It is also said that when the flood intensified, the monks had to use small “catapults” to cover such a long distance. It is from here that the tradition of throwing eggs, which in Britain is remembered and revered until now, has gone.
