Weird sports gifts for Christmas
Christmas time, mistletoe and wine. And for the oddball among your friends and family add some weird sports gifts. Here’s five such items that should satisfy those with a penchant for the offbeat.

Union Jack leggings
You know those crazy people who queue for days to get into the Wimbledon Tennis championships? That maybe the only occasion where you could wear this patriotic item and blend in. Rule Britannia! (Etsy, £53.39)
Emoji Official Novelty golf balls
These types of weird sports gifts will be of particular appeal to wayward golf types. They seem to mirror the range of faces I’ve pulled on the course as I hack my way around. Should you lose them all in the bushes rest assured they’ll give whoever finds them a chuckle. (Amazon, £8.45)
Dining Table Ping Pong
You know the routine. Open the presents, stuff in some Christmas dinner, erm … clear the table for some Ping Pong. If we Brits can practice enough we’ll be well placed when Dining Table Ping Pong becomes an Olympic sport. (Prezzybox, £18.95)
Fox Tossing, Octopus Wrestling and Other Forgotten Sports Book
Anyone for a spot of Fox Tossing? No, I’ve no idea either. But you will learn if you find this book in your Christmas stocking. Apparently it’s “perfect for swotting up on your buffalo jumping and ski ballet on the go!” So what are you waiting for? (The Present Finder, £8.99).
