The annual tradition of Hand Ba' will take place in Jedburgh this afternoon.
The game, which dates back to 1914, is based on a version of medieval football.
It was once played all over Scotland, but today Jedburgh is one of only a few towns that keep up the tradition.
Two parts of the town, known as the uppies and the doonies, depending on where players were born, have to get the ball to their respective side.
To do this, the ball must be manhandled, often in a moving scrum.
