Tuesday, Tiw, and Billiards

Tiw's day

Tuesday or 'Tiw's day'; named after the Norse god of single combat, Tiw.

Shrouded in lore and legend, it is said that Tiw would challenge his enemies to a game of billiards on the second day of every week. The loser would have their hand chopped off (handi-capped). Myth has it that Tiw only lost the once, and continued to play well into his old age.

If you are interested in following in this great tradition (with slightly different handi-capping), and would like to play Billiards each Tuesday evening; contact the LDBSA Billiards Secretary - billiards@ldbsa.co.uk
