May Blog | NuKids Masters | May Half Term

NuKids Masters | Highball Events

Nukids Masters is just around the corner with plenty of spaces on the qualifiers still! There are 2 Qualifiers during the evening, one for under 12s and a general open qualifier for all from 6:30! 25 blocs to try and get the best score you can, remembering there will be a top gun score so if you get over that then you shall be positively disqualified. There is a Grand Final for the top 10 Male & Female competitors where there will be 4 blocs for each finalist, which they will see for the first time when they come out onto the comp matts! Creating a exciting scene on the DMM Comp wall for climbers and spectators! Head here to register online for a qualifier!

We are using the online scorecard from Vertical Life, alongside our paper cards, during this competition so we highly recommend to PRE-REGISTER for this along getting those rest days in preparation for it! It is essential that you update your scorecard throughout the whole qualifier and this will be policed throughout!


May Half Term | Highball Holidays

May half term will soon creep upon us, and we have ram packed our calendar with plenty of sessions ranging from our classic HighballPlays to the ever popular 30 min Junior Taster. Not forgetting the adults, we have a lot of private sessions where you can tailor the session to whatever you want (this one is also perfect for slightly older children wanting a custom experience). Or book onto a Introduction to Bouldering where you will be shown everything you need to know about navigating around a bouldering centre, but obviously learning that climbing thing too! Once you have done an Intro to Bouldering you can then supervise 1 child below 8 years or 2:1 ratio with anyone above 12 years old!

We also have a brand new session called FamilyPlay where you can have yours and your little ones first experience of climbing together! We do require one adult and one child as a minimum, but why not get involved and come and have a climb instead of just watching!

Check out the calendar here!


Yoga | Highball Events

Yoga has been arranged for the whole of May! There have been a few hiccups along the way, finding our feet with instructors and location but this is all slowly coming together! Keep you eyes out for more information soon. Currently its on once a week every Thursday night, free for V12 members and £6 for non members. Come get your stretch on between 8:45-9:45pm!

SACA Area | Highball Extensions

Exciting News! We are planning on extending our SACA area to above our Rehab Rooms! This extension will take place over the next few months, so bare with us while we have some construction happening onsite! This is all for you guys to have that little extra space to stretch, warm up, lift weights, hang board and to also give our yoga classes that extra space they need!

Ladies Night! Our night with dedicated sessions for all you lovely ladies to come and get involved with climbing!

It always runs on the third Friday evening of each month unless stated otherwise, and includes cheaper bouldering inductions for those looking to get into climbing, and free coaching for those looking to improve.
