Southampton Old Bowling Green, the oldest bowling green in the world, celebrates its 245th annual "Knighthood" competition which started this week (Wednesday) and may last up to two weeks before a victor is found. The competition features "gentlemen commoners" competing to become this year's Knight of the Green. The winner is awarded a silver medallion and they also receive the honour of officiating future competitions. The game of bowls was traditionally played by the upper class who would wear their best clothing. As time went on "common people" were accepted onto the green and allowed to play. These days top hat and tails are worn during the competition to emulate the smart dress once worn by the elite whilst the game's players wear their regular white bowling kit. The competition has run in one form or another since 1776. ? Solent News & Photo Agency UK +44 (0) 2380 458800
