Errr go on the website and see! If someone says yes they are likely to be gone in two minutes!

Lots of availability for first week of Sept if you aren't stuck with school. Nothing before that though, but I'm sure they will release tickets during the event as they have during the Olympics. Have a look here.

Just checked and there doesn't seem to be anything. Hopefully that will change in the next couple of weeks.

There are wheelchair basketball tickets available right now, but kids will be back at school then..

There must be more tickets to come up. There are 500,000 left and there is no way they have all been put up today. I imagine they will drip feed them in and there will no doubt be more available once they have looked at venue space/seating.

I am desperately trying to get some, they are being dripped in and I am checking around 8 times a day, people are basically racing to get tickets - as soon as they become available they go again

frustrating, but brilliant to see how popular they are

Problem with lots of them is that they are after the schools go back. Checked a few times but nothing available apart for £300-500 tickets for opening/closing ceremonies. DD was interested in going to the Olympic Park but just not going to be possible.

Swimming tickets available but on 4th when schools are back.

yeah - the only dates we can get there are 1-3rd (DD isn't back until 4th)

so fighting a losing battle really but still checking!

Only the opening and closing ceremonies have available tickets that you can actually buy. Cheapest is £250 a pop for the closing ceremony. The other tickets that look as if they are avaialable actually aren't! Try buying them and you'll see what I mean!!

Been trying all day to get tickets with no luck :-(

Waiting for cycling. Thanks for telling us

Hulababy Thu 16-Aug-12 16:23:22

Am too limited as only one day I want really due to school and can't get til mid morning and can't leave to late

ggirl Thu 16-Aug-12 16:24:51

Bugger ..trying a different set now

Thanks for the headsup fruitcorner, just got athletics for Sun 2nd Sept.

jennywren123 Thu 16-Aug-12 16:46:35

I've put three sessions on my shopping list. AM and Evening Athletics and AM Wheelchair Basketball all for the same day. I really want Athletics, so ideally I would love AM Wheelchair Basketball and Evening Athletics, but if the evening athletics isn't available I would prefer AM Athletics. I hope that if I'm lucky enough to get some after I've waited an hour 15 minutes that I can remove the ones I don't need. Now says 2 mins to go so only another 20 minutes until I know

jennywren123 Thu 16-Aug-12 16:49:05

Damn......I got both the athletics ones and I couldn't see any way to remove one lot confused so I've let them all go and now trying again . . . . . . grrrr.

Against all the odds I have managed to get some athletics tickets for Sunday 2nd. I have no idea what for!
