14 Aug Bracknell Extreme Show
Extreme skateboarding show comes to Bracknell. Whether you know your ‘ollies’ from your ‘half-pipe’ you can still enjoy some skateboarding fun this summer with a town centre display.
The Rubicon display team were in Bracknell on Wednesday and Thursday to show off their skills as part of the Love Bracknell Love Leisure campaign.
They will also be teaching skateboarding skills on Monday, August 24, and Friday, August 28, at Bracknell Leisure Centre.
The centre is also running a Teen Extreme course every Tuesday and Thursday at 4.15pm from September 8 to 10.
The course will help teens develop core strength and stamina for skateboarding and BMX bike riding.
Iain McCracken, executive member for leisure, said: “Skateboarding is a popular way for young people to exercise.
“The courses at the leisure centre offer youngsters in the borough a safe and fun way to develop skills, after which they can try out their newly-acquired skills at Mill Park or, for the more experienced, at Longhill.”
The sessions will be divided into age groups:
Session 1: 9.30am to 10.30am for ages 7 to 10.
Session 2: 10.45am to 11.45am for 11 and over.
Session 3: Noon to 1pm for 11 and over.
Session 4: 1.15pm to 2.15pm for 7 to 10.
Session 5: 2.30pm to 3.30pm for advanced riders – you must have your own skateboard and be able to perform an ollie for this session.
