Sport under Apartheid, Table Tennis, Cricket, Tennis and Football

CP/MONT/16. Montagu's politics are evident in his sporting interests, as he took a great interest in how South African Apartheid was affecting sport and how sport could possibly be used to combat the Apartheid; his collection of literature reflects this interest. Montagu was a keen supporter of Table Tennis and the first President of the International Table Tennis Federation; as such he took a keen interest in the development of the sport, with his collection on this subject extending from 1936 to the early 1980's. As an enthusiastic member of both Hampshire and the Marylebone (English) Cricket Club, Montagu kept a number of score cards and records from each. He also kept score cards from some less conventional matches such as 'Champion County v. the Rest of England', 1919; 'Gentlemen v. Players', 1948; and 'M.C.C. v. M.C.C. Young Professionals', 1949.
