Playing Our Game, A History of Sport

With the earliest mention of recreational games in the 16th century, Winchester College has a long and distinguished sporting history. This exhibition explores the evolution of sport at the school and includes the college’s unique version of football. Bringing together a collection of records and awards to celebrate sporting achievements, highlights include an Olympic gold medal, and a selection of ‘hot rolls’: essentially team sheets decorated with a mixture of art and propaganda. A delightful insight into an important aspect of the school’s social history.
