Miniature Golf
MINIATURE GOLF, also known as MINIGOLF, or PUTT-PUTT, is an offshoot of the sport of golf focusing solely on the putting aspect of its parent game. It is played on courses consisting of a series of holes (usually a multiple of 9) similar to its parent, but characterized by their short length (usually within 10 yards from tee to cup), the use of artificial putting surfaces such as carpet, astroturf and/or concrete, a geometric layout often requiring non-traditional putting lines such as bank shots, and artificial obstacles such as tunnels/tubes, ramps, concrete/metal/fiberglass forms, and moving obstacles such as windmills. When miniature golf retains many of these characteristics but without the use of any props or obstacles, it is purely a mini version of its parent game.

Curling
CURLING is a sport in which players slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target area which is segmented into four concentric circles. It is related to bowls , boules and shuffleboard . Two teams, each with four players, take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones, also called rocks, across the ice curling sheet towards the house, a circular target marked on the ice. Each team has eight stones. The purpose is to accumulate the highest score for a game; points are scored for the stones resting closest to the centre of the house at the conclusion of each end, which is completed when both teams have thrown all of their stones. A game usually consists of eight or ten ends. The curler can induce a curved path by causing the stone to slowly turn as it slides, and the path of the rock may be further influenced by two sweepers with brooms who accompany it as it slides down the sheet, using the brooms to alter the state of the ice in front of the stone

Cue Sticks
A CUE STICK (or simply CUE, more specifically POOL CUE, SNOOKER CUE, or BILLIARDS CUE), is an item of sporting equipment essential to the games of pool , snooker and carom billiards . It is used to strike a ball , usually the cue ball . Cues are tapered sticks, typically about 57–59 inches (about 1.5 m) long and usually between 16 and 21 ounces (450–600 g), with professionals gravitating toward a 19-ounce (540 g) average. Cues for carom tend toward the shorter range, though cue length is primarily a factor of player height and arm length. Most cues are made of wood , but occasionally the wood is covered or bonded with other materials including graphite, carbon fiber or fiberglass . An obsolete term for a cue, used from the 16th to early 19th centuries, is BILLIARD STICK
