Whether you’re an armchair competitor or you’ll be out there jumping up and down in the stadium, you can re-enact your favourite moments in the back garden with the help of our great Sports section.
Why don’t you take a look at some of these ads and plan your own mini Olym…(oops, nearly) event in your own home this summer?
OK so it’s not the size of a professional swimming pool, and is probably more suited to synchronised swimming than high level diving, but this 12ft x 4ft swimming pool would look great in any back garden and think of the fun the kids will have! We reckon it could do water hockey too at a push
Fancy making hockey even more fun by doing it on roller skates? And for free? Uni Roller Hockey in Royston are offering free lessons if you bring your own skates!
We don’t know about you, dear readers, but we not only can’t twist our bodies in the way the high jumpers do, but we can’t jump much higher than our own knees either. And let’s not even think about the pole vault…
But how much easier (and more fun!) would the highjump be if you had some of these great Kangaroo Jumpers? We want, we want, we want!
If all the excitement of your own Summer tournaments has tired you out, then this match carp fishing rod could be the thing for you.
The gentle lapping of water, the sun’s rays on your back, the pride in catching that prize winning carp – kind of beats watching the archery doesn’t it?
Of course, you can make your own fun in the garden with balls, frisbees and games that you already have – but do check out the rest of our sporting goods section and maybe you’ll be winning your own medal this summer!
