Don't despair, Snooker dearest. I wouldn't have known some of them either unless I'd researched them :-)

Isn't it wonderful how the oddest things can spark a memory, Rebecca. Who would have thought a Whiffle ball would!

My apologies, Jill dearest! Punkin Chunkin was far from my mind when I was thinking of sports, games and activities. Whatever was I thinking :-)
Here's an idea! Perhaps you can contact the Olympics Committee and suggest Punkin Chunkin be included? Makes more sense than synchronised swimming :-)
True, there are three footballs included - you couldn't be expected to recognise an Aussie footy, now could you? :-)

Good old Wiffle ball! I got glasses when I was 6, and got several "lectures" about being so careful of them (as they were very expensive). So, I was afraid to have a ball thrown at me, like a softball. Wiffle ball was one ball I didn't have to be afraid of (NERF balls weren't invented yet!). Hadn't thought of these in years, thanks.

A fine collection of rounds and ovals for our jigidi athletes. Not being very athletic, I did not recognize some of these, T. I did notice a blatant omission......where is the punkin? Around these parts Punkin Chunkin is a highly recognized sport! I will be most interested in seeing what some of these are. I see 3 footballs, so, that can't be right. Thanks, dear one!

Tailor made for you, Snooker dear and you didn't disappoint :-)

Thanks, Rosie. I didn't expect anyone to write 25 answers. I'd thought most interested folks would make a mental list and check it off when the answers are posted :-)

I know a few for sure but others have me snookered. :)

No one has taken your challenge? I'm surprised. I can name thirteen without a problem but the other twelve I'm not sure of. And a few of the ones that should be there in their most seen form aren't and I think you've substituted a different brand than what is seen in international play. I'll just have to wait and see. Thanks for the fun. Hope more join in. Rosie
