Pitch Up For The Games
10:32am 12th June 2012
Visitors to Weymouth during the Olympics will be able to pitch up at two sports venues during the games.
Weymouth College Community Sports Centre and Redlands Community Sports Hub are offering 300 pitches between them.
The initiative run by outdoor experts "Camping At The Games".
A night's stay at any of the sites will cost no more than £10 per adult, and £5 per child. Clean toilets, hot running showers, parking and access to a lively clubhouse is all included.
Rhian Evans, co-founder and director of Camping at the Games, said: "We wanted to make taking part in the Olympics affordable for everyone. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved in the Olympics. We have joined forces with local sports clubs close to Olympic and Paralympic venues who can offer their facilities and atmosphere for less than a 10th of the price to provide great value accommodation that in turn will generate valuable revenue to be reinvested into community sport."
