Sports have always been prominent in Pitt Town and the surrounding district since its early days. Horse racing and cricket were some of the earliest sports, but there were also other unusual forms of competition concocted including sledge hammer carrying.
This involved competitors running while holding a sledge hammer by a nail in the handle with only their forefinger and thumb. The winner being the one to cover the course in the shortest time without dropping the hammer. And then there was Gentleman George Dawson who was educated at Pitt Town in the 1870’s and went on to become Australian Lightweight Boxing Champion in 1891.
The Windsor & Richmond Gazette reported in June 1907 “we understand there is a probability of a good sports club being started in Pitt Town, where there are a number of fleet footed pedestrians. When events are held they are keenly contested and the public evince great interest in the proceedings.
