Sportshall Athletics is an indoor form of track and field for children between the ages of 4 and 16. It was created by George Bunner MBE to provide a safe and warm environment for young athletes to train during the cold and dark winter months. Sportshall quickly developed into a new form of team competition and the first ever Sportshall competition took place in 1976 with the annual UK CLUBS CHAMPIONSHIPS being established in 1984.
Further details are available on the Sportshall website.
Berkshire has a well established and successful Sportshall league which encourages young athletes and their coaches to maintain a focus throughout the winter, whilst also building the fun and competitive spirit vital for a young sportsperson's development. Traditional events are introduced in adapted forms suitable for the indoor environment.
