There were incredible performances at the first ATBShop and ATBShop Skate Warehouse Urban Rider Games at Hawksworth Industrial Estate.
Taking place at the town’s only indoor skate park on Friday 10 April, skateboarders, scooter riders and BMX riders demonstrated their skills, energy and daring throughout an evening of thrilling competition in seven scooter, BMX and skateboard categories.
Organiser Diana Kirk said: “The aim was to celebrate how guys and girls are going out and doing something they enjoy, which is keeping them fit and active. We had 100 competitors from Swindon and also as far away as Bristol and Oxford.
“Throughout the day there were well over 300 people watching the competition; we had great help from parents to put the event and it was lovely to see so many grandparents cheering on the youngsters.
“The kids really had to push themselves hard; there were some amazing tricks, and every time they came off the noise was just amazing. There was a fantastic atmosphere and a great spirit amongst the competitors.”
