TENNIS!
Tennis was popular amongst the upper classes of
Victorians. Women played tennis wearing long
skirts and long sleeved blouses. This is a tennis
racket that they would have used.

BICYCLES!
By the end of the Victorian era cycling had
started to become popular! Here is a picture of
the first bike, the penny-farthing!
As you can see it has two wheels one very large
and one very small! This would make it extremely
difficult to climb on!

FOOTBALL!
Football was a popular game for fathers and sons
to play together. Often poor families wouldnt be
able to afford a football, they would use a
bundle of rags or even a pigs bladder!
1863 the first football club was formed, this
club was Stoke City.
5
Cricket!
Rules were soon fixed for the game of cricket,
too and in 1878 the first Australian touring team
came to play in Britain.
