As with Series 5 last year, I am posting one piece for each episode containing the following: the questions, how the team fared and the answers.

The Questions

[S6Ep6] Team name: The Listening Ears

Round 1: 10 sports by trophies [“The ‘Tenable’ Tower will show the names of 10 major sporting trophies and the year the contest that they are associated with was first held or in the event of a series the year the series ended;  we are looking for the 10 corresponding sports; in some cases the trophy was not originally known by the name on the ‘Tenable’ board; this is as of January 2022.”]
