Sportshall athletics was created to introduce young athletes to track and field in a form that could be practiced indoors and generally during the winter months when the weather can be unfavorable. www.sportshall.org

 

Werrington joggers support and encourage participation in Cambridgeshire AA organised annual Sports-hall athletics competitions, on a team competition basis, which are then used as the basis for County team selections for the Regional finals for Under 11's and for Under 13's/Under 15's.
