Irish Skittles

Ireland

Irish Skittles
Yes, they play a skittles game in Ireland. It looks as though the term "skittle" refers to both the projectiles ("throwers") and the pins ("standers"). Five skittles stand inside a ring and you have to knock them out of the ring - not just knock them over.

Les Quilles

France

Les Quilles de 9 (English language version)
It's skittles, Jim, but not as we know it.
Take a look at this excellent site. It describes the game with the aid of diagrams and short video clips. The game looks devilishly complicated and I still don't understand it, but it's not for want of trying on their part. There are also links to other forms of French Skittles.

Les Bitlles Catalanes

Catalonia

Les Bitlles Catalanes (translated from Catalan by Google)
They play skittles in Catalonia too.

Good Causes

Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund
Anyone who has lost someone to pancreatic cancer, and many London Skittlers will remember Bill Evenden of Norbury Skittle Club, will be pleased to know that there is now a charity dedicated to redressing the scandalous underfunding of research into this disease.
