The aim of the game is to score more spons than your opponent by shooting your spon into a goal. Special spon shots include - Crevise shots (when the spon is rested against a crack on the pitch to gain extra leverage when kicked)
Spon has also coined many phrases including "There is no shame in air shots" which refers to the frequency in which the spon is missed mid kick.
Spon was first spotted in the playgrounds of Oxted County School, before sweeping throught the countys of Surrey and Sussex. The biggest game of Spon known so far was held on the specially chosen roof of a fort.
The inaugrual World Spon Cup is due to be held in late 2009 with competitiors from over 2 countys due to attend.
