During the interwar years, Jews were restricted from joining social clubs, like the Vancouver Club (even though David and Isaac Oppenheimer were among its founders). They were excluded from country club golf courses. Their reaction was to establish their own sports teams.

In the 1960s, restrictions against Jews entering exclusive sports clubs began to be removed. Even with restrictions, Jews have always taken an interest and participated in a variety of sports and physical activities.
