Scouts have collectively engaged in many sporting activities. These examples from the Archives of Cambridge District Scouts look at the ebb and flow of some.
A number of single issue sports activities do cross the pages but do not appear regularly enough to provide a solid local history.
The 13th Cambridge troop magazineof 1932 refers in passing to a decline in ‘club swinging’ by the Rovers. This probably refers to the use of Indian clubs as an aid to physical fitness and if slightly dated at this time the equipment was likely to be readily available. This, being the only reference to this activity, does not have a dedicated page.
