Tug of War

Tug of War

Sport Overview

In tug of war, two teams of eight people compete by pulling a rope from both sides to move it towards their side.

Owing to the fact that tug of war is a team sport, the rules are very simple and the game can be made fair relatively easily by allocating members with similar abilities to each team, among other reasons, it is a popular sport all around the world. On the other hand, however, high-level tug of war games involve many techniques and strategies, giving the sport a profound nature.
