The 1860 Club
OUAC strives to provide facilities, coaching and competition opportunities for everyone from complete beginners to international competitors, across all disciplines. The diversity and scale of OUAC’s activities require significant ongoing financial support from external sources.
With the systemic shift in UK athletics from volunteer based to more professional, OUAC is struggling to cover new costs arising from coaching and more club members competing at higher levels. As a result and in order to build upon recent successes and continue this upward trajectory, OUAC has created a new supporters' society: The 1860 Club.
This supporters club, based on our year of foundation, will provide a regular and dependable funding stream to support our vision for the future, enabling us to plan ahead with certainty and confidence. On top of this, it will allow the club to adhere to our core principle that athletics should be affordable for all.
Anyone can become a Member of the 1860 Club by donating £18.60 per quarter, while alumni aged under 25 can join for just £18.60 per annum. Those who give £1,860 or more per annum will become Patrons of the 1860 Club.
In recognition, all members and patrons will:
- receive an exclusive pin badge (pictured)
- have their names listed on the OUAC website and in each year’s Varsity Athletics programme
- be invited to an annual drinks reception held in Oxford
