Greenwich Council has 1000 tickets for this summer's London 2012 test events in Greenwich Park to give away to local residents.
The test events will take place in early July in Greenwich Park and residents who want to attend are invited to enter a council ballot.
Cllr Chris Roberts, Leader of Greenwich Council, said: “A hugely important element of the Council’s work with LOCOG has been concerned with maximising the opportunities for local people, especially young people, to be involved in the Games and be a central part of local preparations.
“These events will allow local residents and schoolchildren an early opportunity to experience the atmosphere of world class sporting events ahead of the Games proper next year.”
Information on how you can enter the ballot for tickets, limited to two per application, can be found on the council website.
Local people wishing to know more about the test events can meet London 2012 organisers at "drop-in" sessions being held this week in Greenwich Park. The sessions will be held in a tent next to the Tea House in Greenwich Park tomorrow, Friday (both 10am to 8pm) and Saturday (10am to 6pm).
