This sport was probably invented by Scottish shepherds hitting at stones with a stick about 500 years ago. In the 15th century, students at St Andrew's turned it into a sport but the rules were only firmly laid down about 300 years later. From that date the sport became popular in England and then spread to the rest of the world. It became an Olympic sport in 1900 and in 1904, there was a competition for both men and women in Paris, and for men only in St Louis.
