NOTH­ING fancy about the Bat­tle of the Sports, as five lo­cal le­gends jump on stage to dis­cuss sport in all its glory.

The new­est Car­ni­vale event has been de­vel­oped to give men a break from the fancy, com­bin­ing the dis­cus­sion of sport with com­edy, hot pies and cold beer.

This is a sports show com­peered by lo­cal leg­end Dave “Dou­ble Oh” Evans who will at­tempt to ad­ju­di­cate a panel of know-it-all ex­perts.

On the panel this year is Dougie “The Scots­man” Baird, Adam “The Fat­man” Mcdon­ald, Sam “Hol­ly­wood” Evans and Nick “Hoops” Gib­son.

The panel will dis­cuss the “oohs and “ahhs” of each sport­ing topic and will at­tempt to bust some myths in the world of sport.

Each pan­el­list will also share the ex­pe­ri­ences - and opin­ions - of var­i­ous sports and their play­ers.

There will be spe­cial guests join­ing the panel and the au­di­ence will be in­vited to join in some com­pe­ti­tions for prizes.

The Bat­tle of the Sports will be held at the Port Dou­glas Car­ni­vale Club, at the Sugar Wharf on Mon­day May 21. Doors open at 6pm and the show starts at 7.30pm. The show costs $18, there will be a door prize and a wel­come beer in­cluded, tick­ets are avail­able on­line at www.try­book­ or at Mocka’s Pies on Grant St.
