the sports have developed a lot since the victorian era. for example footballs rules were even close to how many there are now. all of the sports in this time period have changed a lot in one way or another.

For men the favored sport was football.This was because it was a hard contact sport.The favored sport for women was croquet.The women were not really allowed to play the harder contact sports, so croquet was a good fit for them.It was a sport that you didn't need to have strength or good technique in, which they believed women didn't have, so it was a perfect fit for them.
