Online booking campsite firm Campingninja has opened reservations for stays at three temporary sites available during the Olympic Games.
A night’s stay costs £10 per adult and £5 per child at the first three community sports clubs signed up to provide temporary camping facilities during the Games.
Reading Rugby Club, Wodson Park Sports Club in Ware, and Blackheath Rugby Club are the first of six temporary campsites that Campingninja’s brand ‘Camping at the Games’ will be providing for the Olympics.
Reading RFC is based less than 10 miles from the site of the Olympic rowing at Eton Dorney, Wodson Park is an eight mile cycle ride along the Lee Valley Pathway to the Olympic Canoe Slalom and around 45 minutes by train to all the East London venues, while Blackheath RFC is the closest to the Games.
Each sports club has space to accommodate at least 100 camping pitches during the four week Olympic and Paralympic Games. Wide screen televisions will be provided showing the main sporting events.
‘Camping at the Games’ co-founder and director Rhian Evans said: “It’s great to see these sports clubs embracing the opportunity to benefit from the Olympic legacy and improve their facilities for the local community.
“While they all benefit from a fantastic location for the Olympics, each club is unique and will be offering something slightly different, so we envisage a huge demand for our sites.
“‘Camping at the Games’ is already proving to be a hit with families, groups of friends, couples and volunteers and it’s encouraging to see how much support there is already from across the globe.”
