I am not a member of SCVAC. Can I still compete?
Yes, as long as you are a member of PWAC and have paid your EA competition fee.
Are guests allowed to compete?
Yes, provided there is a lane free and no delay to the programme. Not in the long throws, though.
What time do matches start?
All matches start at 6:45pm. Detailed timetables will be circulated to selected athletes by email.
Are there standards for entry.
No, anyone can compete. Although competition is keen the main aim is to have fun and try new things.
What Division are PWAC in?
Our men are in Div 1 and our women are in Div 2. The aim is to get both teams in Div 1 and to stay there.
Any rule changes for 2017?
Yes. No guests allowed in hammer, discus or javelin. Four trials allowed in shot and long jump this year.

Important: Do not miss out on the opportunity to compete in this low key but well organised veterans athletics league. We have had the track to train on for a couple of seasons so lets put that training to good use and show our rivals what we are capable of.

Many thanks,

Alan Newman
