The next round of the ‘Make It Count’ competition run by the world famous Element Skateboard company takes place at ATBShop indoor skatepark on the Hawksworth Estate.
Last year the global competition was held in Manchester. On 7 May the UKs top skaters will be travelling to Swindon in a bid to win an all expenses trip to Barcelona for the Elemental European championships. The winner will be flown to the USA to take place in the world final.
Diana Kirk of the ATB Shop said: “We are obviously very excited as we will have skaters travelling to the town from all over the UK to compete. If you are around on Saturday, drop-in and see some really top class skating. It’s going to be amazing.
“The entry fee for competitors is just one can of tinned food to be donated to the Swindon Food Bank. There are just two competition categories: 13 & Under and 14 & Upwards / Sponsored.”
The event starts at 12pm for warm up and registration and competition takes place between 1pm to 6pm. Spectators are more than welcome to watch and help Swindon Foodbank
