How do I sign up?
Just use the PayPal box below and carefully choose your option. Please note that you'll need to choose between 1 or 2 days, whether or not you want a t-shirt and if so, your preferred size. If no size is specified, you will be given a medium t-shirt. If you're not choosing the t-shirt option, leave the second drop down box as 'No t-shirt'. Please also note: you must enter your real, full name in your details on Paypal, as this is what will be recorded on the event register.
Please note ticket purchases are non-refundable and that no paper ticket is needed for the event, once you've paid then your name is added to the register behind the scenes and you will be on the list when you arrive in the morning so all you need to do is show up and visit the regstration desk. PayPal receipts will speed up the process and you can either print them out or display them on your smart phone at the registration desk.
An email will be sent out to those who have booked in the near future with an opportunity to choose the modules you'd like to attend during Day 1 of the event. Modules will only run during the Saturday (Day 1) and spaces will be limited for each workshop, so please reply to this email as soon as you can.

We'll see you there...

Thank you for booking your place at this year's Parkour Generations Rendezvous event. It promises to be another huge weekend for the Parkour community and there will be coaches, guests and participants there from all over the world.
You'll be glad to hear we have a lot of training lined up for you as well as some exciting modules for you to sink your teeth in to if you need a break from all the pushups!
In this email we're including a full list of where you need to be and when, as well as a checklist of things to bring on the day. If you have any questions that are not answered in this email then please send us an email and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note that if you've ordered the limited edition RDV shirt, this will only be available to collect on day one unless you let us know in advance that you're only attending Day 2 by email. The participant shirt is now black because it ended up looking much, much nicer than the white one when we went to the printers. You will be able to collect your limited edition shirt if you purchased one, on Day 1 at registration.
Checklist, things to bring with you to Rendezvous
-Your signed waiver for the event. Just print it out, sign it and bring it along with you to the registration desk when you arrive.
-Changes of clothes and extra layers in case the weather isn't on our side. We're all hoping for a scorching weekend but Rendezvous is a two day event and takes place outdoors, come rain or shine.. and we all know how unpredictable the weather is in London. Come prepared for anything.
-Sun cream. Just in case we get a really hot weekend. You will be training a lot in the sun if it's a nice weekend and you'll need to keep yourself safe and do what you can to prevent sunburn or heatstroke. We saw a few cases of people overheating last year and getting burned but everyone who brought enough sun cream and water was fine. A hat might be useful too.
-Lot's of water. More than you think you'll need. There are shops that will be accessible and lunch breaks but this is going to be a very big event so the queues might surprise you and you don't want to waste your lunch break in the queue for the shop.
-A bag to hold your valuables. There are very few lockers available at the sports centre on day 1 and no locker space at all on day 2 so you will need a backpack or a bag to carry your valuables with you. Parkour Generations will not be held responsible for any damage or loss to your valuables so please plan ahead and bring something to keep them safe. A waterproof ziplock bag for phones and wallets might be useful if it's a wet weekend.
-Lunch. You will be using a lot of energy on the training days so bring something substantial for lunch and snacks to keep you going throughout the day.
