Federal Park Wallsend, NSW
Competition Ground is Federal Park Wallsend (location Boscawan Street, Wallsend) and compete from Monday 5.30pm. Parents for athletes under 18yo are required to stay at park and assist.
We compete as Wallsend RSL Athletic Club (affiliated with Athletics NSW) and as Wallsend RSL Little Athletic Centre (affiliated with Little Athletics Association of NSW).
Our aim is to provide a safe and friendly environment for all members of the Club to enjoy the sport no matter at what level they choose to compete.
The first Wallsend Athletic Club was first formed on 18th November 1874, Mr James Fletcher being the Club President and Thomas Abel (Chemist) first Judge. Competition was held in Federal Park until 1914 when the Club closed due to the war effort.
The Club reformed in 1957, with Mr V Prisk Club President. The club continued from 1957 until present time at the Federal Park site.
An announcement will be placed on club facebook and website by 4pm.
