Shuffleboard just got injected with steroids, beer and a little aluminium. Welcome to Stop 1 of the TINS OF GLORY - SUMMER TOUR, a sport invented by the Balter crew, where the humble tinnie hits centre stage as an implement of mass game action.
You can be a part of the Tinnie Hurling Summer Tour as it descends on the Beach Road Hotel during Sydney Beer Week, where mates pit themselves against mates for the chance to be showered in prizes, beer and glory.
How does it work? Teams of two get 4 tinnies per team and 20 seconds to slide them down a 6m long bench, aiming to get closest to the ‘pleasure zone’ at the end. Highest score progresses to the next round. The winners will receive a Balter pack valued at $1000 and enjoy the prestige of being flown to Good Beer Week, Melbourne 2018 and compete at the World Championships.

TEAM: Entry is $20 for your two-person team, which includes a tinnie each on arrival.
