Medieval Sports


Jacob Ryan and Jonny Buck

  • Basically, jousting was combat training for knights that was also entertainment for the people
  • Knights would be on horse back and charge at each other with a lance in their hands
  • The lance was like a spear and was usually 9-14 feet long and 1.5-2 inches in diameter
  • Their were two types of jousting events, the Joust a plaisance and Pas d'armes or passage of arms
  • Joust a plaisance was an elimination tournament
  • Pas d’arms or passage of arms was just a knight taking on any challenger
  • The field that archers practiced was called the “Butt”
  • They were at the edge of the town so that the archers wouldn’t be disturbed
  • They were flat and about 200 meters long
  • There were mounds for targets at one end
  • The mounds were usually 2-8 meters in diameter and 1-3 feet tall
  • Men were supposed to know archery to fight in a time of crisis
  • There are three different ways to play Skittles, West Country, Long Alley, and Killer
  • Skittles was like modern day bowling
  • The balls used were usually wooden and would be larger than a tennis ball but smaller than a cannonball
  • The lane was about 24 feet long and 6 feet wide
