The tenth Chap Olympics will be held in Bedford Square Gardens on Saturday 11th July 2015.
This annual celebration of sporting buffoonery rewards those athletes who have put all their efforts into sartorial preparation, plus the cultivation of fine moustaches, yet have done no physical training whatsoever. In fact, anyone turning up to the event in proper sportswear or displaying any signs of physical fitness will be immediately turned away.
The far more important gentlemanly skills are turned into not-very-competitive sports. Tea Pursuit tests one’s mettle while holding a cup and saucer on a moving bicycle; Ambassador’s Ball involves the tricky manoeuvre of catapulting a Ferrero Rocher into a champagne glass; Golden Handshake puts one’s etiquette conventions to the test, in choosing the right water-filled rubber glove to shake, and Not Playing Tennis proves that we British are always on better form when asked to do something rather badly or not at all.
