The Big Flash 19 | Highball Events

Time is flying by and that means THE BIG FLASH is only a month away! The biggest and best comp hosted at and by Highball attracts some of the strongest climbers within the country to battle it out for the TBF Title! Last year Nathan Phillips took the title for the men and Hannah Slaney claimed it for the women!

Throughout this event, we are always needing volunteers to help out in many different ways! The biggest collection of volunteers we need are brushers and Judges for the Semi-Finals & Finals! We are calling for your help and in return, we are offering free pizza and hot drinks! These events struggle without your help so if you are interested come and speak to James or Guy at reception and we will get you signed up! There will be a training day before the weekend of the Flash (11th-13th October), to give you everything you need to know on the day!


Yoga Calendar | High-Stretch

Would you believe we have been offering Yoga Sessions since March?? For the last few months we have been working alongside Kate and Andy to put classes on when we can. Now though we have a fairly set calendar!

From now onwards Andy will be offering Monday Night sessions at 18:30 and 19:30. While Kate will be offering classes throughout September on Sunday mornings at 09:00 and 10:00 for those who enjoy the early bird sessions.

Still free for V12 members and £6 for guests, its well worth having a go and getting a good stretch on!

Follow this link for booking.


Hot Food | BetaCafe

With the summer slowly disappearing our Pizza Nights will cease once the nights get too cold and dark. Don’t worry though, it’s not just yet! The pizza nights will be running throughout September and up to the weekend of The Big Flash (11th-13th October).

We will still be cooking a selection of food once Pizza Nights finish, the kitchen boffins will try to mix it up weekly so its not the same food each week. Also keep your eyes peeled for potential food being cooked on Wednesdays again!

August Edition | TBC Series

August hosted another round of the TBC series where we had a group of level headed climbers keen to tackle the blocs. Some rare appearances throughout the comp too with a ‘one night only’ bloc on the woody board within the training area!
