Amongst the 60+ sports and games events on offer at the upcoming World Alternative Games will be a Hide N Seek competition!
Taking place in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales in the afternoon of the 10th August the Hide N Seek competition ('Chwarae Cwato' in Welsh) will feature both adult and junior team categories.
The Japan Hide-and-Seek Promotion Committee was established in 2010 and aims to have the sport in the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan!
The rules of tournament Hide N Seek sees two teams of seven players face each other in a ten minute match. In the first five minutes, half of one team is given two minutes to hide within an area that measures 65ft x 65ft. The opponents then have to locate and tag the hiding players, with the second half of the match mirroring the first. The rules are the same for children under the age of 12, but the area measures 55ft x 88ft.
