The last marble standing games
With the summer of sport on-hold, Arla Cravendale are delighted to announce the event of the year, the Last Marble Standing games. Watch as six teams, made entirely of marbles, go marble-to-marble in exhilarating sporting events. Just like Cravendale, our athletes must stay fresh and go the distance; only those who last the longest will be victorious. But that’s enough talking. Let the games begin!
Introducing the Duke and Duchess of Craven
Proudly hosting Cravendale’s Last Marble Standing will be the Duke and Duchess of Craven. Popular amongst the Cravendales’ community, the Duke and Duchess are known for their fresh outlook, pure intentions and, like the cast of Love Island, sporting only chicest of milky white ensembles.
The Last Marble Standing Games will be taking place at the world-renowned Cravendome, in the heart of the picturesque Cravendales.
Meet the Teams
We have 6 brand new teams competing in the Last Marble Standing tournament. These six teams have each completed long applications, intense qualifiers, and have even managed to make it through judges houses all for the chance at taking home that coveted Cravendale Cup.
As our current host team, Team Purity were the only team to automatically qualify to compete in the LMS Games. The Duke and Duchess of Craven have personally filtered through thousands of aspiring athletes to find the purist marbles for the Team Purity line-up.It’s safe to say there will definitely be a lot of eyes on this team’s performance when that first starting gun goes off.
A powerhouse of endurance and teamwork, Milky Madness are definitely the team to beat in the LMS Games. Highest placed in the qualifiers, they have quickly become the bookies favourite to win, and have caught the attention of many of our high profile fans. A team that prides itself on thought-out tactics and strict preparation, it’ll be interesting to watch how this team hold up when faced with the unexpected.
The new kids on the block are here to shake things up. For a team that has only existed for 8 months, The Freshers hit the ground running when they qualified in 3rd place in an unexpected but refreshing turn of events. With a lot to prove, these underdogs will definitely be getting a lot of attention when game day arrives.
A clear audience favourite coming out of the earlier rounds, the Semi Skimmers have garnered a huge fan-base already. While their performance in the qualifiers landed them a respectable mid-spot, what they lacked for in points they sure made up for in personality. Don’t be surprised to see the stands packed high for this team duringthe games.
Graze of Glory
Marble veterans, Graze Of Glory are the longest standing team in our line-up. First stepping out as a team in 1923, the Graze Of Glory banner has been seen waving at almost every major marble event up until their retirement in 1985. But now they’re back, with a brand new lineup, the same old spirit and we just cannot wait to see what these guys have got.
A team that’s known more for their speed than their endurance, there were more than a few shocked faces when we saw Dairy Dash in the line-up for the tournament. However, finishing just behind Milky Madness to take second place in the qualifiers, it’s clear this team have thought hard about what it takes to compete in these games. Shock has turned to excitement when anticipating what this team will bring to the table.

At Cravendale we love a filter. Even our milk is filtered for purity which means it stays deliciously fresh up to 3 weeks unopened & 7 days when open! No additives or UHT, it's fresh milky goodness, pure and simple.Learn more
