Sporting Talk: The forgotten history of everyday speech

We use sporting phrases every day without realising where they come from. There are some that are obvious, like ‘the ball’s in your court’ but there are others whose origins are not so clear.

December 2020 sees the launch of our brand new exhibition ‘Sporting Talk’ which will be exploring more of these phrases and sayings that we use in everyday speech

Admission to the Sporting Talk exhibition is included in general admission, giving you access to all areas including the National Horseracing Museum, Palace House, and the Rothschild Yard. Don’t forget to join our behind the scenes tours at 11 am and 2:30 pm
