Sports Quiz
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

The last quiz was a bit tricky.So this is much easier.The answers are ten popular sports and 15 associated venues, all of which are in the British Isles.At least one venue is included for each of the ten sports.Some of the questions are cryptic (crossword) type clues, and others are trivia questions.The number of letters in the answer is given in each case.The questions are in no particular order, and it goes without saying that the illustrations have nothing to do with the answers.

 

Hoping for plenty of high scores.Iíll publish the results on Sunday 13 May.
