London has made a remarkable contribution to modern sports. It was in the capital that the rules for archery and weight-lifting were defined, together with those for lawn tennis, cricket, rugby, croquet, football and billiards. Home to the world's oldest cycling club and rowing race, London was the first city to stage water polo, table tennis and claypigeon shooting championships. Illustrated throughout and rich in detail and anecdotes, Sporting London is an entertaining tribute to a colourful sporting heritage.
