History of International Tug of War Day

The origin and history of International Tug of War Day are still unknown. Everyone will be aware of this game, and all must have played it at least once in their youth in school, at summer camp, or on other occasions. This game has grown now; it not only has its holiday, but it also has an international and national federation that organizes tug-of-war tournaments worldwide. To play this game, just take a rope, tie a cloth in the middle of it, and split it into two teams. These teams should hold each end of the rope and try to pull the other team towards them to win the game. Sometimes, this game is played using a stick instead of a rope. Very few to a large crowd of people can take part in this game.
