🔥 What’s hot for January in the capital … including SNOOKER royalty at Alexandra Palace, RUGBY meets the City of London special, HOCKEY’S Big Day In at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the NETBALL season has lift-off with international action featuring England vs Jamaica.  

🎉🎟️ Competition giveaway! 🎫🎉  Two Golden Tickets to the AP Race London International were up for grabs to one lucky reader.  But who won?!  All is revealed below.

🎬 On with the action ⤵️



The world’s top 16 players – including arguably the greatest of them all, Ronnie O’Sullivan – are on the baize at Alexandra Palace for London’s biggest snooker event.  The Masters takes place all this week and there’s still time to bag a last-minute ticket for some of the sessions. 


International netball returns to the Copper Box Arena on Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 January for the Vitality Roses Test Series between England and Jamaica.  It’s a sell-out, however resale tickets are available from the England Netball website.


Rugby League and the City of London collide at the Capital Challenge, a unique annual event held in the iconic surrounding of the Honourable Artillery Company.  Try something a little different as London Skolars and London Broncos face-off on Friday 20 January.  


England Hockey’s National Indoor Finals are fast and frenetic and headed to the Copper Box Arena on Sunday 29 January.  Super 6s Finals Day is a popular date in the calendar so don’t delay if you want to be part of Hockey’s Big Day In!

👀 That’s just a flavour of this month’s action in the capital.  For the full rundowincluding football, horse racing, rugby union, basketball and ice hockey visit our ‘What On’ page here.


Congratulations to Becky in Stratford, Newham, who won our prize giveaway for a pair of Golden Tickets to AP Race London International in May!

Swimming superstar Adam Peaty is set to headline a stellar line-up of Olympians and world champions at the Aquatics Centre from 27-29 May.
