The Olympic Rings
The UK is the place to be this summer, it’s official. The biggest sporting event to be held in this country within living memory is fast approaching; with the Olympic torch currently making its way along the South Coast this week, all of you happy campers would be gutted to miss out on an opportunity to get involved in all the action!
What better excuse could you be given than your friends at Camping Ninja taking over the capital to provide you with the opportunity of being right at the centre of the action for only £10 a night! You may have heard about our recent initiative, Camping at the Games, as we’ve had ninjas on the news people! 75% of our proceeds get pumped straight back into the clubs we are working with, so get on board everyone; support Team GB and the local sports communities across London.
Even if you don’t have tickets it’s still worth getting yourself down to Londontown to celebrate what is promising to be the best summer of events London has ever seen! There are a vast array of events to suit every palate- sports enthusiasts can still enjoy the marathon and non-ticketed road cycling; whilst the artists among you can get yourselves down to the wide range of free music and arts festivals our capital is playing host to this summer.
We’re working with 9 campsites for the Olympics, but here’s a small selection, and what they have to offer you non-ticket holders out there that still want to get involved with Team GB:
Surbiton Hockey Club West London: Surbiton is located on the outskirts of London close to some fabulous green spaces including; Bushy Park and Hampton Court Gardens where the Time Trials will be taking place. This club is also easily accessible to Central London for the marathon as well as the road cycling.
Southgate Hockey Club, North London: Southgate is situated in the stunning grounds of Trent Park where there are a host of outdoor pursuits to enjoy; including bike riding and even a Go Ape Centre. Despite being a rural site it is also perfectly situated for easy access to Central London and the Olympic Park.
Weymouth College and Redlands Sport Centres, Weymouth and Portland Bay is a natural amphitheatre and there are several vantage points where you can watch the sailing events if you don’t have tickets. The college is set on the stunning Jurassic coastline and both the college and the sports centre are readily accessible to Weymouth Town Centre, and the beach where there will be a range of cultural activities during the games, including Weymouth’s very own opening ceremony!
