Kent's Sporting Memories eBook


A free eBook comprising the edited transcripts of many of the oral history recordings carried out by the project.

Launched during an online event hosted by former rugby union star John Taylor on 17 June 2020, the book, titled Kent's Sporting Memories, touches on a wide range of sports, including men’s and women’s football, wheelchair racing, cricket, boxing, basketball, as well as those active pastimes orientated around the east Kent coast, such as wind surfing, waterskiing, and sea swimming.  

By talking about their personal experiences, and reflecting upon how their lives have changed over the years, the interviewees featured in the book also shed light on many social aspects of Kent village and town life, including the forging and experience of friendship.

The eBook is availiable as both an epub and Kindle file.
