This image depicts the boys on their way to the Wall Game.

The Wall Game is a quintessentially Eton sport, resembling elements of both football and rugby despite at times looking like no other imaginable game. It is believed that the Wall Game was invented by errant Kings Scholars (pupils who live in College), bored by lessons and wishing to find a new way to spend their limited free time.

The Wall Game is itself is dominated by two matches, which take place on St Andrew’s Day in the Michaelmas half and Ascension Day in the Summer half. Both these fixtures pit a College team against an Oppidan team. However, mixed-wall teams (consisting of both King Scholars and Oppidans) compete in scratch matches against Old Etonian teams regularly during the Lent half.
