Announcement: London to Host The 2013 European Championships of Slalom Skateboarding


I am pleased to announce that the UKSSA has been successful with its bid to host The 2013 European Championships of Slalom Skateboarding. The event will be staged at Hog Hill from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th August 2013.

The e-mail I received this morning from Petr Janousek, ISSA EU status Marshal read as follows:

 ‘‘Congratulations Rob.

It is an honor for me to tell you that ISSA BOD and EU status marshals decided on the allocation of organizing the European Championships 2013 to London. We believe that in our decision we support the growth of slalom skateboarding in England. Personally, I am excited because Hog Hill is a great place for holding races.

Rob, if you need some support, you contact me and I try to help you.

Good luck with organizing the European Championship 2013!“

This is a great opportunity to show not only what a 1st Class venue we have but what a good show we can put on. In the coming weeks I will be putting an action plan together with key sponsors and supporters. I will also be asking for a number of volunteers to step up to form the main race committee.

It would be appreciated if you could wait for further detailed announcements before bombarding us with your questions at this early stage. Updates will appear here and on the UKSSA Facebook page. 





Let’s do this thing!
