Yak Racing

No matter how obscure some Emerging Sports might be, they all have rules and they all need a referee or umpire to uphold those rules. Human Foosball? Two-handed tennis? This is the collection to explore the weird and wonderful world of sports and the officials who oversee these sports.

Find lots of interesting and entertaining information about unique, unusual and hybrid sports in this collection. Some sports have already made a mark – like ultimate Frisbee and ringette – while others are popular with small segments of the population – like yak racing and three-sided football. And some sports are downright bizarre – football tennis anyone?
