An exceptional in-door, traditionally office based sport invented in early 2005 by a sporting visionary known through bin ball folklore as "Brucey".
The sports spiritual home is in what is referred to as the "Monkswell Arena" in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside.
The game involves two players, 2 waste paper baskets positioned exactly 25 feet apart and a regulation bin ball (a rolled up ball of paper wrapped in brown parcel tape, weighing 28g and measuring in 54mm in diameter).
Players then take it in turns to bowl the ball either under or over arm aiming to get it in the opposing bin. The game consits of 5 Innings of 5 deliveries per inning. In the event that the score is tied, a "bin off" ensues starting with the original bowler on a sudden death basis to decide the victor. Early records indicate a highest ever score of 11 "bin balls" in a single match with 4 straight "bins" in a row. This was set in Summer 2006 in the Monkswell Arena in a competitive league tie by Challenger "Steve".
Extensive research suggests that a primitive form of the game may have been played by the Monks around the well. Games continue there to this day.
"Hey Steve, fancy a game of bin ball" the Ad-cock has left the building."
