Mendip AC is a friendly, welcoming club. We are able to cater for all abilities of fitness, so don’t worry if you’re just starting out or have never tried athletics before. When you join, the coaches will speak with you and help you decide what training sessions are right for you. They will also guide you through all the things you may not have tried before. It really isn’t as scary as it may seem and soon you’ll be enjoying yourself  and learning many new skills.

As a club, we recognise and support the development model put forward by UK Athletics, where we have athletes aged 7-11 training at Fundamental Level, athletes aged 11-14 training at Foundation Level, and we have Event groups for older athletes. We hold the ‘Club Mark’ award, a quality standard which we have held for a number of years and are required to keep a 1 to 12 coach athlete ratios.

Please contact the membership secretary for information if you are interested in training with MAC.

Our numbers are always limited by the number of coaches available.  If you are a parent or a person with experience or interest in becoming a qualified coach, which would help us take on more young athletes, please contact Peter Grosjean at
