TRADITIONAL AMERICAN QUOITS - AN INTRODUCTION

QUOITS:  (Formally pronounced koits or kwoits

but commonly pronounced kwaits here in Pennsylvania)

 

n.  An ancient throwing game in which heavy metal rings are tossed underhanded, or pitched, at short metal stakes driven into the ground.  The Game of Quoits is the predecessor to, and the original form of, the more widely known game of Horseshoe Pitching.  Until about 1930,  Quoits were by far the predominantly played of the two games in America, being a popular pastime played all across the Country, from East Coast to West Coast.  

 

Today In the United States, Quoits is still a popular game, but only in a few, isolated areas in the East, mainly Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.  The game originally came to America in the 1700's with the early settlers from England, but once here it evolved into a much different format than the original English and Scottish versions it originated from.  This American adaptation is now referred to as Traditional American Quoits.  In turn, a few other American-bred variations of Quoits spawned out of the Traditional American Game; these include Trenton Style, Slate Board, and Beach Quoits. 

 

Traditional American Quoits and English Quoits are NOT the same game, and are played differently.  It is important to understand that modern American quoits are a somewhat scaled-down version of the English game.  To Illustrate this in a quick and easy manner, below is a simple table comparing English and Scottish Quoits to American quoits, along with the other most popular American variations:

THE 3 AMERICAN QUOIT VERSIONS - TRADITIONAL, TRENTON, AND SLATE-BOARD

Traditional American Quoits - The Original Iron Quoits Played Across America. Since the introduction of Quoits to America by British settlers during early Colonial times, the Traditional style of American Quoits has existed as a chunky, 6 inch diameter iron ring weighing 3 or 4 pounds, with a small, maximum 3-inch diameter hole.  Lighter sets of iron Quoits weighing 1 to 3 pounds each and having even smaller holes were somewhat less common.  Many old sets of these original quoits can still be found, mainly in eastern parts of the United States, at antique stores, public auctions, flea markets, or stored away and long-forgotten in grandparent's attics or garages.  Traditional American Quoits are basically a slightly smaller but similarly-proportioned version of the heavier 5 to 8 pound quoits pitched in Britain since the Middle Ages.  This version is also the most widely-spread style of quoit,  having been played, at one time or another, all across North America.  Many 19th and early 20th Century sporting books, manuals, and game catalogs have commonly documented this style of quoits in their Illustrations and advertisements for sale. 

  

Two Regional Variations of the Traditional Quoit. Two other popular adaptations of the Traditional American Quoit also survived to the present day, but are only indigenous to small, localized regions in Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  To their own right, each has a colorful history and a small but avid following.  Unlike Traditional Quoits, which prospered over most of the US,  these two unique pitching games never spread beyond their respective local areas, but still flourish as very popular and competitive adult games in the communities where they are played.   Both of these quoit versions are featured on their own dedicated pages on this website via the links at the bottom of this section.

 

Trenton Style Quoits are native to a small region of central New Jersey, especially in and around the city of Trenton itself.  They are made of steel, but are much thinner and flatter than a traditional Quoit.  Trenton Quoits are sized and weighted similar to Horseshoes - 2 1/2 pounds, about 7.5" in diameter, with a very large 5" center hole.  

 

Rubber Slate-Board Quoits is a very popular league sport in bars and homes of the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania. This game uses 1 pound rubber quoits, slightly smaller in dimensions to their Traditional American cousins, which are pitched at short metal pins mounted on very heavy 24x24x1 inch slabs of Pennsylvania Slate quarried from the local area. 

  

Many other types of Quoits or Quoit-related games do exist, constructed of soft rubber, rope, wood, and even plastic, in various sizes and shapes. These games are generally marketed for indoor or recreational family and children's play.  In addition, antique sets of wall-mounted quoit boards and table quoits were once popular indoor games, especially in Britain.  They required a player to toss small rubber or metal rings at a vertical or horizontal board containing multiple hooks or pegs of varying point values.  These party-type games are all distant relatives of the Traditional outdoor metal Quoits featured on QUOITS.INFO.

 OFFICIAL QUOIT RULES, WHERE TO BUY, SETTING UP PITS, FOUNDRY TOUR

Pitching Quoits is uniquely different from pitching Horseshoes.  Traditional American Quoits are smaller in size but much heavier than a Horseshoe, and are tossed underhand into 'pits' - wooden boxes set in the ground and filled with soft clay - at a 4" high Hob or pin centered in the pit.  Although Horseshoe pitching evolved from the game of Quoits, and both games are played with similar rules, Quoits requires a somewhat different mindset and a tactical approach to pitching.   Whereas Horseshoes is mainly a game where players attempt to pitch repeated ringers for points, Quoits becomes more a game of strategy and placement. In Quoits, there is far less emphasis on ringers but a greater importance on blocking, pushing away, or knocking over your opponent's quoits to win points.  Defensive play is minimal in Horseshoes, but is a very prominent element of Quoits.  In the Getting Started with Traditinal American Quoits section below, the Quoit Pit Layout page illustrates the different styles of pits that can be constructed, and court dimensions for installing your own pits.  

A Quoit Pit

 filled with natural red clay

Quoits is a game of millimeters. Modern-day Quoits are pitched a distance of 21 Feet pin-to-pin, in comparison to a 40 Foot pitch for Horseshoes.  Quoits requires much less area to play, making it an attractive alternative to Horseshoes pitching, especially in locations that do not have the large area of open, level ground Horseshoes require.  But, because of the shorter distance and the strategies involved, quoits inevitably end up crowded around the pin and buried into the clay.  Exact measurements are frequently needed to determine which team's quoit is actually closest to the pin.  The best tool for this job is a machinist's adjustable Dividers (also called a Compass) - the proper, historical accessory that should be present at all quoit pitches.  Dividers are hinged, V-shaped tools having two straight metal legs, with pointed tips that can be easily adjusted and set to any fixed width; they are generally used for marking and scribing circles.  Some people refer to these as Calipers, but technically, Calipers have curved legs with blunt tips facing inward or outward, while dividers have the straight legs with sharp downward-pointing tips.  Dividers are definitely a necessity when gauging the extremely close distances so very common during tough competition!

Measuring with Dividers 

Sorry, but you can't buy Quoits at WalMart!   The original Iron Quoits of colonial America are now cast in foundries using one of several metals, including Iron, Steel, Brass, and Bronze.  A half-Century ago, Iron Quoits were still manufactured and distributed nationally by sporting goods Companies such as Spalding's, and were regularly sold in stores and sporting goods catalogs. Today, you can still purchase a commercially-made set of Horseshoes at almost any store that sells backyard sports equipment, but unfortunately, traditional Quoits are no longer commercially produced or nationally distributed.  Quoits of today must be specially ordered and crafted at a metal foundry, usually after the customer has paid for the design and construction of a casting form at their own expense.  Only a handful of small foundries in Eastern Pennsylvania currently get regular orders to produce traditional Quoits,  making small batches for some of the local retail outlets in those areas where Quoit pitching is still popular.  Your best source for purchasing Quoits is on the USQA.ORG website, which now sells  Official USQA Steel Quoits. Also, the Other Retail Quoit Sources link below includes a list of hardware and sporting goods stores in Eastern PA that usually stock foundry-made quoits, in varying weights of brass, bronze, or steel, along with their addresses and telephone numbers.

QUOITS - THEIR ORIGINS, HISTORY, AND HOW THEY CAME TO AMERICA

The origins of the Quoit can be traced back to the very ancient Chakram, a ring-shaped metal blade used as a weapon of war, and later in history, to the Discus throw of the ancient Greek Olympics.  The  Discus was also referred to as a Quoit in many Greek writings and mythological tales.  In its original form it was a flat, tapered disk made of stone, iron, or bronze.  The Discus was by far the most popular event of the Olympic games, so many spectators who watched the athletes perform the Discus throw in competition eagerly sought to imitate the sport at home. Those who were wealthy paid to have custom iron or bronze disks or rings made for their personal use; others who could not afford the expense made do with objects they could find or craft themselves. 

 

At some undocumented point in history, stakes in the ground were added to change the Game from one of distance to one of accuracy. 

 

During the period of the Roman conquest of Europe, the Romans shod their warhorses with circular rings of iron weighing about 4 pounds apiece.  These "shoes" were not nailed to the horses' hooves but rather were strapped to them with leather thongs.   The rings were a fair imitation of a Discus or Quoit, so the soldiers began tossing the worn-out shoes in their leisure time.  When horseshoes later developed into the open U-shape familiar now, the soldiers would either bend them into crude rings or just pitch them as they were.   Thus, Horseshoes became the economical substitute for soldiers and commoners who did not have access to the expensive, forged sets of Quoits. 

 

The Roman conquest brought Quoits to Britain, and by the 1300ís the game became a hugely popular pastime there, especially among English Noblemen.  British settlers eventually brought Quoits to America in the late 1600's, where it flourished throughout the Colonies.  Just as in Britain,  quoits in America were played by both elitists and commoners alike.  Quoits remained a favorite game in the eastern part of the country, while the settlers moving westward, with their natural dependency on horses, made Horseshoe pitching a popular game in the Midwest.  By the early 1900ís, New York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Newark, Paterson, Fall River, Providence, and other New England cities were host to the best Quoiting facilities and the top players in the East, while Chicago, St. Louis, Denver and San Francisco were highly competitive Quoiting areas in the West. 

 

Then, in 1920, an unknown Horseshoe pitcher discovered a technique that enabled him to to throw consistent and repeated ringers with standard pitching Horseshoes. The rookie pitcher entered and easily won that yearís national Horseshoe competition, becoming infamous overnight.  Soon everyone excitedly swarmed to the game of Horseshoe pitching to learn how to master the ringer pitch themselves.  This was a major blow to the popularity of Quoits in America, causing a slow but steady decline of active players throughout the remainder of the 20th Century.  Today, Horseshoes continue to be played by millions of people, but Quoit pitching has become a fairly obscure oddity.  Only a handful of areas in the North-East United States continue to keep the game popular as a competitive sport.  QUOITS.INFO is leading the effort to revive the ancient game of Quoits in America and re-establish its popularity across the continent.

QUOITING CLUBS, GROUPS, AND TOURNAMENTS IN NORTH AMERICA

The growth and popularity of Horseshoe pitching since the 1920's has overshadowed the now seemingly 'obscure' game of Quoits, but in Eastern Pennsylvania and parts of New York and New Jersey the game is still played by many small groups of dedicated quoit pitchers.  The pages below each highlight a Quoiting Club, public Tournament, private Invitational, or just a group of friends and family who host an annual or regular pitching event anywhere across America.

 

These pages are the result of people taking digital photographs of their event and sending them to us at QUOITS.INFO.   We will gladly welcome any additions to this list.  If you host or attend any group quoiting event and want to see it featured here, email us your digital photos or mail us your prints, along with player names and information about each of the photos and the event itself.   We would especially like to hear about any tournaments held outside of eastern Pennsylvania, as proof that the game is spreading its popularity into other areas of North America.

INCREASING PUBLIC AWARENESS TO QUOITS THROUGH THE MEDIA

The QUOITS.INFO website exists as a unifying "home base" of information for all quoit players in North America.   We are all one large family who really enjoys  the rewards of the outdoor recreation and the friendly competition that quoits can bring us.   More and more visitors return regularly to this Web site to stay up-to-date on current North American Quoiting news and any new club and tournament postings.  QUITS.INFO is not just a gathering spot for those who like to pitch; it also provides a wealth of information for those in the media wanting to do a newspaper or magazine article or a video spot about this unique game. 

 

Public coverage of quoits in the printed and video media, along with the presence of the media at local quoit tournaments, has been helping the USQA spread awareness of the game to more people than could be reached with the website alone.   Below are pages with newspaper and magazine reprints, and short video clips from television news broadcasts, all reporting on the Game of Quoits as an inviting recreational sport, or else focusing on a specific local Quoiting event.   The more media coverage our sport attracts, the more public awareness we will certainly generate; and hopefully, the more active quoit players we can continue to recruit into the sport!
