Get Sporty In Swindon 

If you've been inspired by the London 2012 games, here's a few places you can try the events yourself!
 
While you might not have the grace and style of Jade Faulkner - Swindon's very own Olympic Gymnast - there's no reason why you can't have a go at some of the events yourself.

We've put together a list of places you can 'go for gold' in Swindon from A-Z.

Archery

No, skin-tight green leggings aren't required!


Athletics

Reckon you could take on Usain?


Badminton

It might not look it, but it's hard work!


Basketball

The next Michael Jordan?


Boxing

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee".


Canoeing

Hope you don't mind getting wet!

On yer' head, son.
