Cool that you slipped in a cricket question :) Whereas in baseball a you have a batter in an inning, in cricket you have a batsman in an innings!

I was about to whinge about the use of “batter” instead of “batsman”, @Jerry928. Before I did so I checked the facts. I discovered the following, which I applaud on one level and deplore on another:

'The Laws of Cricket have officially been amended to include the gender-neutral terms “batter” and “batters” rather than “batsman” and “batsmen”.

In an effort to make the sport’s language more inclusive, Marylebone Cricket Club agreed on the changes following thorough discussion among the Laws sub-committee.’ https://www.foxsports.com.au/cricket/about-time-cricket-makes-move-from-batsmen-to-batters/news-story/ae5d2617853a6da2b60ec97b32fe8199 23 September 2021

Kinda feel like croquet is more of a game than a sport. Picking nits, for sure. Just doesn't feel like a sport.

Football is played at Wimbledon. AFC Wimbledon. Question definitely needs changing or accept Football.

Also, Ton is definitely a term for 100 runs in Cricket and should be accepted.

Good quiz otherwise.

well the club that runs Wimbledon is the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, so that is more exclusive to Wimbledon compared to football

Andy Murray is only British when he wins. If he loses he is Scottish.

Beckham was my first answer as he played in four different countries and of course he is even more famous because he is married to that "singer"

Being part-Welsh, I am always on the look out for commentators claiming someone is Scottish/Welsh if they lose and British if they win, and I never hear it. Perhaps we should put this rubbish to sleep now - oft said, doesn't happen in the real work (probably because most commentators have been trained to avoid saying it!).

nice quiz but in the grand tradition of jetpunk pedantry, Manchester United play at lots of different grounds.

Would also be nice to have at least one Welsh and one Northern Irish question in a 'British' quiz.

The cricket question is a little ambiguous: the term for the batter is "centurion", the term for the act of scoring 100 runs is "century".

When I saw the Phil Taylor question, I thought "they're considering drumming a sport?!" (Motorhead fans will get it) ;) I'm not sure the activity in the actual answer is any more of a sport than drumming...

In cricket it is called an "innings", with an S, as opposed to the singular "inning" in baseball.

Maybe change it to: Besides tennis, what sport is played at the All England Club, Wimbledon?

AFC Wimbledon for example is also famously playing in Wimbledon (football) and there are other sports as well.

agreed. right next to the wimbledon tennis grounds there's a big golf course - also in the neighbourhood of wimbledon. the question could be amended to something like 'at the all england club, wimbledon' or an equivalent to make it clear you mean 'at the same grounds as the wimbledon grand slam'
