Extreme weather conditions and heat reigned down on the athletes but with the new stand at the Walton track; gave us all some respite from the glorious sun on what was a glorious day of athletics for our Kingston team.



Sadly, Rory Stratford and Tom Wilson had to withdraw through injury (but nothing serious).  Hoping they’ll be back to training soon. The U15s however, stepped with some rearranging to cover the sprints.

British Athletics League National One M3 (of4) Bedford 7.7.2018

Promotion to National One, effectively the equivalent of Professional Football’s Championship, put Chris Hall’s Men’s BAL team into a cauldron of Clubs with extravagant personnel resources, but despite our fielding far from full-strength K&P teams in the first two fixtures, there was more than substantial commitment, enthusiasm, spirit, and not a little talent, amongst those available that we punched above our weight right from the off. This 3rdmatch, with the team gathered by Chris, but father Mark Hall in charge on the day, epitomised that sheer determination to keep fighting despite yet more K&P athletes being unavailable. We clawed our way into 6thplace, and with one match to go in Liverpool on August 4th, we need to target keeping ahead of Herne Hill and Windsor SEH to give us the chance of avoiding “the drop” and remaining in Division One. A 10% hike in athlete turnout and points across the board could well be enough!!

Massing at the club for a 7:45am start in the drizzle was not made any better by the absence of the long-heralded coach. One worried Team Manager’s phone call later and our chariot pulled into the car park allowing the Team to arrive at the Ashdown Leisure Centre in style. In a year where team numbers have been low just enabling a few athletes to attend that would otherwise have been out off by the journey could make all the difference. A big thank you to the Club for agreeing to part-subsidise the coach hire.


The joyous moment of overtaking the Guildford and Godalming team coach on the motorway on the way down was lost to our athletes who were either heads down and focused on their various gadgets or out for the count from near end-of-term sleepovers.

Ebbisham Match 2 Woodcote, South London 10th June. Print

Such a contrast in weather from the Arctic conditions from the first match to a pleasant breezy Summer’s day.   We welcomed four new U13s making our U13 team swell to eleven strong and athletes of all abilities and skills to ensure Kingston covered every event in this age group and they did exceptionally well.  Our U15 team of six athletes performed brilliantly to try and cover as much as they could and altogether Kingston finished 4th.    Herne Hill winning the second match again which means that the Championship will be theirs – not even Croydon or South London will be able to overtake them in the final match on 8thJuly.  However, Kingston retain 2ndin the league because of our outstanding first match result, where we came second.
