Greystone Skatepark will host tehUK Nationals this weekend

The UK National Skateboarding Championships 2019 are happening at Greystone Skatepark in Manchester THIS weekend and the women compete in street and park on Sunday 4/14!

This is the first official National Skateboarding competition to be held in England, with competitors earning qualifying points for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020.

Competitors for the event will be invite only, with a selection process which includes: current UK ranking, previous competition standing, sponsored and professional status and future potential in the two event disciplines.

It looks like since there are not a ton of female skaters competing so there really is no qualifying round - they practice on Sunday and go straight to finals - which you should be able to see LIVE!


Sunday
          
2:00 pm                 Female Park Final (6 AM PST / 9 AM EST)

3:30 pm                 Female Street Final (7:30 AM PST / 10 AM EST)

5:45 pm                Results/Prize Giving (9:45 AM PST / 12:45 PM EST)

Confirmed skateboarders for the event for the women include Sky Brown, but we have heard that shredders like Stefani Nurding and Helena Long will be competing as well!

Skateboard England CEO, James Hope-Gill: “We’re excited to announce the launch of the UK Championships. The most talented skateboarders from around the country will compete in the first event and with Olympic qualification points at stake, it is set to be one of the highlights in the skateboarding calendar.”

Sunday will be streamed live and you can watch the action on line at these two sites:
