Men of Sparsholt - sometimes AKA The Tug of War Team

If you're male, over 18 and live in the parish then, although you may not have thought much about it, you are a Man of Sparsholt. 

Some Men of Sparsholt (MoS) meet on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm at The Star Inn to do a little physical exercise followed by a little re-hydration.  All men in the parish are very welcome at this weekly event, even those who choose not to join the exercise part.

MoS also provide a tug of war team in the summer.  

MoS have been known to organise hill walking in Wales, go-kart racing through the village (click <here> for more on this), clay pigeon shooting not in the village and a hotly contested bicycle polo match on Stirling's tennis court.  There was once a curry eaten in Wantage too. 

Last year MoS raised over £11,000 for the Helen and Douglas House by climbing the three peaks (click <here> for more on this).

MoS is an entirely disorganised, leaderless, unhierarchical and un-exclusive group, whose only membership crtieria are covered in the first sentence.  Come along on Tuesday and help us decide what to do next year to keep oursleves amused.
