Warm-Up for the Olympics in London this August.
There's a fantastic opportunity to watch established British stars and the talent of tomorrow competing in major events on three successive days later this month. Between 14 and 16 August 2009, London Warm-Up Weekend gives you the chance to enjoy top-class Basketball, Triathlon and Modern Pentathlon.
What you can expect to see at London Warm-Up Weekend :
‘Game On' at the O2 Arena, with the Great Britain Men's Basketball team playing against Poland and Turkey v Israel (Friday 14 August, 6pm)
ITU World Championship Series Triathlon in Hyde Park (Saturday 15 August, 10am and 1.10pm)
Modern Pentathlon World Championships at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre (Sunday 16 August, 3.30pm)
A bonus for London 2012 supporters
A combined ticket for all three events costs £20, while a family of four (children under the age of 16) can attend the whole weekend for £55. As a London 2012 supporter, British Basketball would like to offer you a free souvenir programme for the basketball event.
Seb Coe, Chair of the London 2012 Organising Committee says:
These three events will be the perfect opportunity to see how our athletes are developing ahead of London 2012. I am sure you will enjoy watching world-class sport at two of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games venues.'
