Welcome to the TSR World Cup of Summer Holiday Activities!


After we asked the TSR community last summer to pick their favourite picnic food, we're back this year with an expanded competition to pick our favourite summer holiday activity!

Whether we've got a few days' summer holiday, six weeks or three months, I'm sure everyone is going tok be looking for summery things to do. After asking my fellow volunteers to suggest their favourite activites, we're ready to go and find out yours!

The format is basically the same as at the FIFA World Cup: the 32 activites have been drawn into 8 pools of 4. Each of these will be in a thread with a multiple-choice poll, and the top two from the poll in each pool will go through to the round of 16. From there on it's 1v1 knockout polls all the way to the final!

Of course well be keeping you up-to-date in this thread when all the polls go live! If you'd like a tag when a new poll goes up, please tell us you're in by posting below!

Here's the schedule for the whole tournament:
