The Easter Holidays are just a few weeks away and we’ve a full program running from 3 April for the whole two weeks.
Our February Half term program sold out way before the holidays started, so be sure to book early to guarantee your spaces!
We’ve also made a few changes and increased capacity on some sessions where we can, and we’re launching a brand new session… HIGHBALLPLAY. VIEW AVAILABLE EASTER SESSIONS!
As usual, we will be extending our opening hours by opening from 10am every morning throughout Easter. Whilst we have specific ‘bookable’ sessions running throughout the day, the centre will still be open for general climbing as usual.
NOTE: We will be closed for general climbing on Friday 7 April to allow for route setting for the NuKids Masters Qualifiers. In the evening, only the rope wall and training areas will be open for general climbing as the bouldering walls will be for NuKids Competitors only.
All young climbers – aged under 18 – and novice adults need to be supervised when in the centre, either by a suitably experienced adult who has registered with Highball or, one of the Highball team. Registered climbers can supervise up to 2 guests if both guests are aged 8+. Children under 8 must be supervised on a 1:1 basis.
Teenage climbers aged 14 and 15 can work towards a green card which allows them to use either the bouldering or climbing facilities unsupervised. Teenagers aged 16 and 17 can book onto the standard Bouldering Induction or Intro to Climbing course to gain unsupervised access to the bouldering and/or climbing walls. Parental sign off will be required.
60mins | Ages 4-15 | £10.50
Our newest and most exciting climbing session, HIGHBALLPLAY, launches at Easter and will be replacing FunBlocs and LittleBlocs. It’s suitable for children from age 4 to 15 which means it’s perfect for siblings, friends and family members of different ages. We’ve made some changes to the climbing walls, adding by added some new Auto-Belays to the climbing walls, along with new climbing holds and fun climbing challenges. All this means more climbing time and much more fun for everyone! READ MORE
