Olympic Routes may affect access to Windmiler sessions

The designated Olympic routes to the tennis at Wimbledon may affect how long it will take you to get to Windmiler sessions over the Olympic period. T here are road closures on Church Rd and nearby.
In particular, if you are going along Wimbledon Parkside from Tibbetts Corner there is NO RIGHT TURN into Windmill Road for the Windmill Car Park. There is also no right turn out of Windmill Rd.
This particular barrier may delay you getting to the Windmill for Sunday runs AND FOR THE 3 MILE HANDICAP 31ST JULY

*Important* England Athletics License Registration Cards

Hi everyone,

For the majority of the club who have paid up memberships, the annual England Athletics licenses are now dropping through your letterboxes. I have received mine today and I know a few others have got theirs too.

England Athletics Licenses 2012

Hi everyone,

I have had several enquiries about EA licenses and just wanted to drop you all a note to update you.

For the bulk of our members their England Athletics Licenses are renewed in April of each year (and run slightly differently to the membership which runs January to December). There will always be an overlap and time delay between the two because of the different financial year ends that England Athletics and the Windmilers have.

Windmilers and the Olympics!
