Ahead of the Game
Headwear in Sport
On now until February 2020
An exhibition exploring the use of head coverings in sport for protection, identification and status.
Showcasing nearly twenty sports, ‘Ahead of the Game’ includes Stephen Wooldridge’s cycling helmet, Olympic softball champion Fiona Crawford’s 2004 helmet, rugby league legend Dave Brown’s 1930s leather headguard and Doug Walters’ ‘baggy green’ cricket cap.
An impressive feature is the range of early twentieth century league and union honour caps. With around 50 items on display, the exhibition celebrates the diversity of headwear in the NSW Hall of Champions collection.
