Welcome to Ashford Athletic Club

Ashford Athletic Club is one of Kent's best known and most active athletics clubs. We offer coaching and competition for a range of athletics events for all abilities and ages from Year 6.
We are now offering coaching sessions and enrolling would-be athletes from school years 5-6. This will introduce them to training sessions to be the best that they can be, whilst at the same time really enjoying athletics.
All of our Club training sessions  usually  take place at the Julie Rose Stadium Ashford, on a Tuesday and a Thursday Evening. 5.30-6.45pm and 6.30pm -8.30pm.

Over the last few months, the track at the Julie Rose has been completely re-laid and  we have been training indoors  at the Stadium and at the Ridge Playing Field just off the Conningbrook Roundabout. Hopefully we will be back at the track shortly and will inform members .In the meantime thankyou to all our athletes for being patient as we  anticipate the long awaited re opening of the track. This will give us one of  the best facilities  in the area as our home.

All sessions are booked through Donna Parrot our secretary, and coach /athlete co Ordinator.

So, if you are new to the area and wish to join us, please contact her via our contact page   

or email membership@ashfordac.org.uk for more information.

There is currently a waiting list for some age groups, but if you are interested please contact us to be put on the list.
