Upcoming Events For Sports Fans In Sydney
Are you going to visit Sydney in the near future, and you also happen to be a sports fan? If so, you will be glad to know that there are many sports-related activities lined up for the next few months, giving you an opportunity to have fun and even participate in some of them. The population around Sydney is sports-oriented so this means that in addition to enjoying something that you love, you also get the chance to mingle with people who have the same passion as you do. Some of the notable sports events that are happening soon in Sydney include:
The Andre Charlton Biathlon
This is a biathlon held every Thursday between 15 January and 02 April. The biathlon usually starts at 6:30 pm and takes around one and a half hours to complete. It is held at the Andrew Charlton Pool on Macquaries Road in Sydney. The biathlon involves a 4-kilometre run across The Domain, followed by a 300-meter swim.
You are encouraged to come along with family and friends who can simply be viewers or even participate in the event. This is a fun and friendly event, and does not require you to be particularly fit in order to take part in it. Consider renting a coach to the venue particularly if you are travelling in a large group, since this is the most convenient way to travel when you also have to carry the gear you might need for the biathlon.
The Tennis Fan Zone
This is an activity that is held every day between January 26 and February 1st at Customs House, 31 Alfred Street. Attending this event will not cost you anything, but will give you the opportunity to watch live tennis with other enthusiasts from the neighbouring regions.

In addition to watching tennis with other people who are enthusiastic about the game, you also get the opportunity to win prizes and giveaways every day.
