‘Aunt Sally’ is a traditional pub game, which is still played in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.

The target is a ball is on a short plinth about 10 cm high, and is known as a 'dolly'. The dolly is placed on a dog-legged metal spike a metre high and players throw sticks or short battens at the dolly, trying to knock it off without hitting the spike. Successfully hitting the dolly off is known as a "doll", however if the spike is hit first then the score does not count and is called an "iron"

League and cup matches are played on Wednesday evenings during the summer on a home and away basis. Spectators are welcome. Due to the thirst quenching nature of the game, ample refreshment is always provided.

All information on ‘Aunt Sally’, including fixtures, is available in the ‘Social’ area of the club website
