Trobada Internacional de Tir de Foners

The Iª Trobada Internacional de Tir de Passetja (1st International Meeting of Slingers) will be held in Sóller from today until Sunday. The main event and competition will be on Sunday, October 30th, at 11h00 at Camp Esports Jaume Oliver in Sóller. The Trobada in Sóller is rather an event for males, but there will be a complementary competition for juniors as well as one for women. Stone pebbles will be used for the competition. After each round of stone slinging, there will be a round where tennis balls will be slung.

Historically, stone slinging is said to be a truly Mallorcan or Balearic activity but, somehow, the activity has spread across the waters and is now being practiced as a sport in countries such as Italy, India, Peru, Mexico, Rumania, Britain and Germany. In the Middle East, stone slinging is used as a technique for hunting. Who would have thought.

The photos were borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of flickr.com, C.C.D.S. and the photographer, Joan Oliver (photo top), and tirdefona.org (photo bottom).

Thank you very much, and

muchas gracias.
