Coming soon right here in London will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch the Olympic Trampoline finals. Rarely will you have the chance to see up close this iconic festival of sport, especially with it being right here on our doorstep, less than 17 miles away!
The top 16 men and women will perform to win the coveted gold medal only available once every four years and seen as the most desirable medal to own. There is something very special about being an Olympic Champion it ranks alongside becoming World Champion in your chosen sport.
The London Olympic finals will be held at the O2, the old Millenium Dome, named as North Greenwich Arena for the duration of the games. The dates are still provisional at this time and are set as 3rd & 4th August 2012. Ticket prices have been announced as £185, £115, £75, £40 & £20 with tickets going on sales next March. If you want to be there then book early. For £185 you might be spotting for them! There are special prices available and this includes young people who are 16 years old or younger (at 27 July 2012) will pay their age for a ticket. Seniors aged 60 and over (at 27 July 2012) will pay £16. (That's Paul!)

It was a long journey there and back, for some lasting most of the day following a breakdown, but it was worth the trek. With 21 competing on the day we had 14 trophies (and 7 medals), 14 improved personal best scores and 9 qualifiers!
Individual results and scores and more pictures are on our website at www.brentwoodtc.org/easton_17oct10.htm. Pictured right one of our winning teams on the day
A little while ago we announced that Brentwood School Sports Centre offer us a discounted membership rate (thanks to Celia Badley for negotiating). If you want to benefit from this approx 24% reduction and waiving of joining fees (net costs £35 per month gym and pool or £26.50 for gym or pool) you simply need to speak to Reception and ask for the 'Brentwood Trampoline Club Corporate Rate'. They will then know how to process your application.

... is now online on our website together with a link to directions to the venue; from Brentwood you will need to allow yourselves a good 2 hours I'm afraid and, since the comp starts at 9:30, that means an early start for most of us! No programmes will be on sale at Easton so please do print a copy before you go if you want one. Organisers have advised us that the competition will be held in the tennis centre rather than the sports centre used for previous competitions (its on the right had side as you drive in towards the Sports Centre).
Good luck to everyone competing!
