The World Marbles Cup is the world championship of competitive marbles. Has been held at a pub in Tinsley Green, West Sussex, United Kingdom since the 1930s.

In the 2003 Cup, the 72nd year, Germany won for the second year in a row. The local British team favorites claimed that drinking too much beer caused them to lose.

Championship spokeswoman Julia McCarthy-Fox said: "The British players have lost their marbles altogether. It was too much alcohol and not enough practise."
