The new skatepark in Crawley, England will be inaugurated on the weekend of September 22nd – 23rd with the skateboard contest taking place on Sunday.
Here’s the official statement from the Crawley Bourough Council site :
This showcase event will give participants the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and talents. Entries will be open to males and females for both skateboarders and bmx riders in the following age categories: U10, U16 and Open. Entry into the competition is Â£3 per person (competitors only). Advanced registration is recommended to ensure a place but on-the-day registrations will be taken at 10am on both days if places are left. The BMX competition will take place on Saturday with the Skate competition following on Sunday, both starting at 11am.
The format for the U10/U16 competitions will be individual entries with 1 minute runs; Open competition will be a â€œJamâ€ format â€“ teams of 3 with 3 minute runs (teams will be made up from individual list where there are only two in a team).
