Sportshall Athletics

Sportshall Athletics is a fun indoor version of track and field athletics 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.

Welcome to The Academy of Combined Events. ACE has been set up to provide potential combined events athletes with the opportunity to develop a range of basic fundamental and  progressive technical event skills in an enjoyable and creative environment. Above all, as part of our philosophy (click here) we believe that the next Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Jess Ennis-Hill or Dean Macey could be living in Somerset, and that deserves the very best start to their athletics career as a multi–eventer. Academy athletes train at Millfield School Athletics Track, Street, Somerset or a nearby indoor venue. 6 - 8pm on Wednesdays during term time. More > >

Many thanks to all our 2020 sponsors. Click on logo for more information:


10 November 2020 Covid-19 Update - apologies for the lack of regular updates. We are pleased to report that work on the track at Millfield has been completed and the flood lights are now operational. Just prior to the latest lock down Millfield were considering allowing us back on the track. However, all grass roots sports are banned until at least 3 December 2020. See England Athletics guidance here>>

Accordingly, the track is closed to outside users and our return will be considered again after
3 December assuming nothing else changes. In reality we think it’s likely that we could be looking at a return in the New Year, assuming no further restrictions. Watch this space for further updates.

Sportshall Athletics - sadly as expected, we have received confirmation that there will be no Regional Championships in Keynsham in January 2021. All sportshall selection, training and competition is suspended until the Covid-19 situation improves.
Autumn 2020 - Millfield track is still unavailable. We have considered a return to Brookside but feel that under the Covid circumstances this venue and restrictions mean that it’s unsuitable at this time. We believe that a return to Millfield and outside coaching is the safest option, whilst acknowledging that the Winter weather will make training a challenging alternative!

13 July 2020 Covid-19 Update - the athletics track at Millfield still isn’t available. Current guidelines for returning to athletics can be found on the England Athletics website - click here>>  The guidance changes  frequently but 1 coach and 5 athletes seems to be the safest option, with social distancing and sanitising a vital part of any coaching session. Larger groups are possible under certain circumstances! Jumps are complicated because of the need for sanitising equipment between athletes. There is hope that the situation will have improved by the start of next term. Watch this space for further updates.

URGENT: As of Tuesday 17th March 2020, all ACE training sessions are suspended until at least the end of April due to the Coronavirus epidemic. We very much regret this decision but for the safety of all concerned we must comply with Government and England Athletics guidelines. Take care, stay safe, look after your family. Best wishes from Peter & Graham.
