Westminster has lots of great athletics venues available for locals living in the central area of London. Synthetic surfaces are the most common for athletic tracks, although there are a few grass versions. The synthetic track means that sports people are able to train throughout the year and in the rain – if not too heavy! Floodlights are in operation at some of the athletic venues to enable athletes to train through the winter months too. The facilities have areas for field events too and that includes discus, javelin and hammer throw.
