Bin It to Win It

Bin It to Win It is our new match night competition and everyone can take part!

Prize fund for 25 November 2017: £40

The aim of the game is simple – throw a tennis ball into a bin. Do you think you can do that? You’ll be throwing the ball from the stands and the bin will be on the centre face off spot. Still sounds easy? Give it a try!

The prize fund starts at £20 and if there’s no winner we’ll add another £20 to the pot for the next time. Balls cost £1 each and are available in the rink foyer before the game and in the first interval – we’ll play Bin It to Win It straight after the second period. When you buy your ball you’ll need to give us your name so we know who our winners are. You’ll have 30 seconds to throw your ball so make sure you’re in position! Our announcer will tell you when to start throwing and when to stop. If more than one ball lands in the bin, the prize fund will be shared equally.
