Records of sporting clubs held by UMA provide an insight into the administration, development and achievements of both University and other sports organisations. In addition to being a reflection of the sporting activities of the various clubs, the wide date range of the collections provides an insight into the changing attitudes to women in sports, and the formation and evolution of student organisations within the University.
