With Britain’s handball elite plying their trade overseas, the London 2012 Olympic Games can often seem a distant prospect to UK handballers.
However, Olympic organisers are now challenging clubs and organisations to get involved, open up and be part of London 2012.
Clubs are being invited to take part in the 'London 2012 Open Weekend', which will take place between 24-26 July 2009, and feature a series of London 2012 inspired events around the country.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘Open Up’, and London 2012 are asking organisations to challenge themselves and their local community to try something new, join in and be inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Last year 700,000 people took part in over 650 events.
Events selected by London 2012 will receive a marketing kit with posters, postcards, banners and web banners.
Registration is now open at london2012.com.
