About us

Who We Are:

Tamworth Athletic Club is one of the Midlands most thriving and successful clubs, we compete in many different leagues around the country. We were the first athletics club in Staffordshire and 24th in England to achieve the much-coveted Sport England Athletics Clubmark status

A Quick Summary of the Club History….

Tamworth Athletic Club was founded April 1974 and moved to it’s present site in the 1980’s.We are one of the few clubs in the country who own, manage and have total control over their facility. Tamworth Borough Council granted us a 99 year lease in 1983. We were one of the first athletics clubs to obtain lottery funding for development of the site. Since 1992 the club has invested over half a million pounds in providing facilities including a clubhouse, all weather track and floodlights.

We are a voluntary, non-profit making organisation with CASC status (Community Amateur Sports Club). Coaches, Coaching Assistants, Bar Staff, Officials, Team Managers, Volunteers and Committee Members all give their time freely; without this the Club would not exist.

Tamworth AC draws members mainly from South Staffordshire, North Warwickshire , Leicestershire and South Derbyshire. Our 8 lane, 400 metre, floodlit all weather track with full field facilities, together with our well appointed clubhouse, provides an ideal environment for our 220 members, aged from 8 years upwards, to enjoy their athletics.

Athletes compete in a variety of cross country, sports hall, race walking, road running and track & field competitions and leagues, both indoor and outdoor, at a number of levels including Midlands Counties, English Schools, National and International. The club’s Young Athletes League team won promotion to the Premier League in 2002 and was rewarded by winning the Tamworth Herald’s award for the ‘Junior Team of the Year’.

A committee of elected volunteers run the club, all from different backgrounds but all support and are committed to the success of Tamworth AC.
