A means of propelling a punt, a flat bottomed boat, across water using a pole (which is usually wooden).

A popular tourist and leisure activity in the university towns of Oxford and Cambridge, England.


To students at many colleges and universities in the English speaking parts of the world, it is the conscious act of ignoring responsibilities to complete class assignments, as in, "I punted my problem set last night," or "I'm punting the study group for the exam."


Punt is also an american football term?
