About the league

Hampshire is one of seven divisions of the Southern Counties Veterans AC Track & Field League. It was known as the Hants & Surrey Division until 2016, but was renamed as all member clubs were then based in Hampshire.

The other divisions are:

  • Herts & North Middlesex
  • Kent
  • Mid London
  • South London
  • Sussex (currently operating independently of League)
  • Western

Each division stages a series of matches, usually on Monday evenings in April, May, June and July, at various venues within its geographic area. The men's and women's champions, plus the runners-up in the Kent Division, then compete against each other in the League Finals which take place in early September.
