Welcome To Athletics Wellington


Here are some useful links.  The first is a planning calendar for the 2019/2020 summer season, including all of the T&F events at Newtown Park and a wide range of other athletics events.  The second is an events matrix showing the detail of track and field events that we intend to offer at each meet.

Season Planning Calendar

T&F season events matrix

The calendar and events matrix are subject to amendment based on feedback and the level of support.

One possibility that we are still considering is to add some mid-week twilight meets.

Upcoming events

Here are links to meet programmes for upcoming events:

Saturday 14 March – Senior Meet programme and Meeting Rules and information

Grand Prix series

During the 2019/20 season, we will hold a points series competition over four meets, where points are awarded for performance (not placing), based on age-adjusted performance standards.  This is a great way to add some fun to our meets.  It allows athletes of all ages to have a chance at getting into the top of the points table if they compete at all meets and perform well.  It also enables competition for points between different disciplines

The final Grand Prix event is the Wellington T&F championships on 1-2 February 2020.

Board Review of Track and Field

The Athletics Wellington Board recently convened a small working group to review our Track and Field programme. The main findings have been distributed to clubs. SEE HERE

Our intentions for the Track and Field programme are set out in a news item HERE
