The sport 1 was named after 2. Give me both

1 =

2 =

Answer = The sport is Bagatelle (1), an indoor table game related to billiards, the object of which is to get a number of balls past pins (which act as obstacles) into holes. In 1777 a party was thrown in honor of the Louis XVI and the Queen at the Château de Bagatelle (2), recently erected at great expense by the king’s brother, the Count of Artois. The highlight of the party was a new table game featuring the slender table and cue sticks, which players used to shoot ivory balls up an inclined playfield. The table game was dubbed “Bagatelle” by the Count and shortly after swept through France.
