The trend sport for 2020 is tug of war. The game involves usage of a 14m rope. The centre of the rope will be marked and a flag placed at two meters on either side of the centre line. This leaves five meters of space for each team of 4 players. Once a team pulls the opposing flag over the centre line the team wins. Teams will therefore have to pull the other team at least two meters to win.
