This website has been published to bring together in one place the results of my research into sport played in the Treaty Ports of China. 

   My initial research was into rugby football in Shanghai and so naturally, the site's content is primarily about the city of Shanghai and the sport of rugby football.

   However, during my research I have unearthed information about other Treaty Ports and other sports played in the Treaty Ports. A lot of this material is not featured in my book 'It's a Rough Game but Good Sport' and so I take the opportunity to share it with you here. 

As I delve further into research for my next project, I will add new information to this site.

   If you have any information you would like to share or questions you would like to ask, I would be delighted to hear from you. Contact Me
