Mark and the guys at Blackheath RFC really pulled the stops out over the Olympic period; having never run a campsite on this scale before they excelled themselves in their attentiveness to all you happy campers, and their willingness to help. The bar proved to be a valuable asset, providing a welcome place of rest for weary Games Makers returning from a hard day at the Olympic Venues!

On Saturday the 4th August we decided to come to London. Having the Games this nearby was an opportunity we couldn’t resist. Since the hotels had discount prices which we still found to be a lot of money we looked for a campground near London and found this Campingninja site. This, together with the warm welcome (and showers), clean toilets and a bar made it a wonderful stay. Very well done! And off course we also enjoyed the Games!

Our stay in a pre-erected tent helped make our trip to the Olympics.There was a great atmosphere,a great mix of people from many countries,the organisation and the organisors were both top notch.My thanks and congratulations!!
We stayed at Blackheath for 10 days. We had a fantastic time. The atmosphere was amazing particularly in the bar when team GB were competing! The facilities were good and the staff were amazing. What a great experience.
What a great idea to use a rugby club for a campsite, all the facilities you need- showers, toilets, bar, shop around the corner. Staff were really helpful advising which trains etc to get (2 stops to Blackheath then 10min walk to Greenwich Park). Most other campers were Games Maker volunteers, they worked long days so everyone was in bed early.
Glad we chose to camp!

I was a Games Maker and camped at Blackheath Rugby Club for the whole duration of the Games. I was very happy with all the arrangements, particularly the dedication of the 24 hour security team – it must have been very lonely at the dead of night! I was also very impressed with the speed with which Ryan, the barman, remembered what I drank – the bar was very, very busy most of the time!
