1962 Oxford Tour of the U.S.

In August and September 1962, eight winkers from Oxford University in England toured the United States, playing winks against college teams and other quickly-assembled teams.  Oxford’s tour of the US left a lasting impact… the jump-start of intercollegiate play in the US in 1962.  In December 1962, winks at Harvard was featured in Life magazine… one of the most prominent U.S. magazines of the time.

Oxford winker Philip Moore blogs about the 1962 tour in “50 Years Ago” and “Don’t Hold Your Breath”.
