Knock Down Ginger, London
Description Knock Down Ginger, London
Many people ask us about the origin of our name. If you were a cheeky London child of yesteryear, the name would flash you back to your childhood sprinting as if your life depended on it, running away from the door with the ferocious dog inside or the grumpiest man on your landing. Knock Down Ginger was 'the' most popular street game in London growing up, amongst; British Bulldog, Runouts and Tim Tam Tommy. We have nothing against people with ginger hair, alot of the doors on council estates in the fifties were a yellow/orange colour. So you would knock down the ginger door and run away.
There are many variations of the name, up North for instance they call the game Knock A Door Run or Postman's Knock.
