Kegeln, for instance, was a popular game akin to skittles, but played on an alley around one-third the width of the British game, and about twice its length. Kegeln also used nine pins, unlike the customary ten in skittles. South Australian Germans commonly played kegeln after the Sunday morning had been spent at church, with participants and spectators separated along gender lines.

64 We need to know more, however, about religious loyalties and sectarian divisions in local sporting clubs around Australia, particularly those involved in church-based or inter-school sports associations. 65 NESB White Immigrants: The Germans During the nineteenth century the Germans were the largest and most influential non-English speaking white immigrant group in the colonies. They were especially recognisable as a distinctive regional community in South Australia. By 1851 the number of German-born people in the colony was 7130, or around 11 per cent of the total population.

The only notable exception to this trend was Victorian (later Australian) Rules football. Yet we need to be wary about assuming that the birth of this game at Melbourne in 1859 was part of a concerted effort to create a unique local sporting culture.
