The arrival of the Centenary affords an opportunity to reflect, explore and provide insights into the nature of sport and the part it has played in the life of Swansea University. Students have long been encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities and sport in its various forms has always been an attraction for many of the University community.
This lecture examines the reasons for the popularity of sport; the achievements of individuals and teams; the introduction of sports scholarships; the development of state of the art facilities and the establishment of degree studies in sport and exercise science.
The changing social contexts and influences that affected sport, along with the growth of the University are also considered, ending with a glimpse into possible future developments.
