VIDEO: Marble champs brave the cold at The Greyhound

A bitterly cold Good Friday morning welcomed teams to the World Marble Championship, at The Greyhound Pub, in Tinsley Green.

Reigning champions, 1st MC Erzgebirge, from Germany, defended their title against teams from Turners Hill, Charlwood, Crawley and much further afield.

The good-natured event even saw some dress in less than conventional fashion as they knuckled down to the challenge of trying to stop shivering long enough to accurately flick their tolleys.
