Decathlon Opens New Store In Dunstable And Launches Competition For Local Schools To Win Ski Lessons At The Snow Centre

Sports retailer Decathlon has launched a competition for schools to win a session for their pupils at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead, to help celebrate their new store opening in nearby Dunstable.

Olympic Skier and BBC Ski Sunday presenter Graham Bell will join them during the event on Tuesday December 5, 2017, which for most pupils, will be the first time they try skiing.

The competition will encourage children to draw themselves participating in their favourite sports. Winners will be decided on a Decathlon web page following the submission deadline of November 3, 2017.

Three Prizes On Offer

1st Prize: Half Day Ski Event (including ski lessons from instructors at The Snow Centre)
2nd Prize: £350 Decathlon School Equipment
3rd Prize: £150 Decathlon School Equipment

Graham Bell said:

This is a fantastic opportunity for a school to give some of their pupils the chance to try skiing in their local area. Many people don’t realise that it’s possible to get into skiing or snowboarding in the UK, without necessarily having to head out to another country and I’m delighted to be involved with this project that will help get more kids into winter sports.

The date for the ski event is 5th December, 2017.
