Daventry A.A.C. is one of the member clubs of Daventry and District Sports Club, based at the Stefen Hill Sports Ground. The Club was formed in 1965 and was initially based at the Ashby Road School playing fields until the athletic track was constructed at Stefen Hill in 1980. One of the founder members of the Club, Roy Fenn, is still the current Club President. The Club is entirely self-financing, with the running of the Club and the maintenance of the facilities being carried out by volunteers.

Over the last 3 years many of the facilities have been updated with the addition on a new run up for the long jump, a new shot putt area, hammer cage and flood lighting for the 100m section. The new floodlighting has enabled full winter training to take place as well as extra training days to help further develop some of our promising athletes.

Do you want to want to join the club? Then why not visit a training session on Tuesday and Thursday evenings 7pm – 8:30pm. If you would like to know more please contact us via email or phone.

We welcome all athletes regardless of sex, age and abilities. Please feel free to browse the site and if you have any further questions do get in touch.
