Pre-Olympic/Paralympic Training Camps

In order for international teams and squads to acclimatize for any Olympic or Paralympic Games, it is becoming increasingly common for Pre-Games Training Camps to be established. There are two in the Dover District:

  • Deal Gymnastics Centre (Artistic Gymnastics)
  • Fowlmead Country Park (Road Cycling, Mountain Bike)
