Spot the ball park: 13


30 April 2010

Can you identify the sporting arena? We take an aerial view of a topical ball park, football stadium, marathon course, golf course, Games venue, race track, iconic arena, athletic theatre (some literally theatres), pitch, park, stretch of water or wherever else sport takes place. And we ask you to identify it with the help of a cryptic clue… For older STBPs, click here



Clue: This ain’t no Arthur Miller thing, not this weekend at least.

What’s the venue? And the city? How could this (long) weekend see a first? And with regards to 25, who wagged at who?

Answers in the comment box, please. The winner receives a cushion (of the metaphorical kind, suitable for resting head or rolling along).
