Website Feedback

Here is just a selection of the positive feedback this site has received.

"Love the site. Have for a long time. Obscure sports have been a fascination of mine for ages. I have a copy of UNESCO's World Encyclopedia of Sport, but that was published in '03. I think since that time you've become the authority on it. In any case, thank you for putting this site together. Thank you! (from Garage Friend, Dec 2022)

"Dear Rob, I am glad to inform you that our team have got a B+ grade in our bowling S&C group project. Without your helping hand, we may not achieve such satisfied result. Once again, appreciate your help. (from Philemon, March 2022)

"Hi Rob & Clare: Your website should be viewed by parents and organizations around the world for at least ideas to keep active through a pandemic. If I can find an organization that gives awards for best websites, I'd like to nominate yours if ok with you. There is enough information for society to create sports for play during pandemics. I found your sight after I created a sport and saw a sport similar but merging could create something helpful to society."
