So, go on, get in some family target practice. Or try to keep up with your little Tarzans on our climbing walls and ropes courses. We have grassy spots for impromptu games of cricket and rounders. You can play hockey on the beach, practise your football and tennis skills – or spend the afternoon on the golf course.
Sports & fun activities

Time to play

If you want something less sporty, we have lots of fun for you too. Hop on a go kart. Try your hand (and spade!) at Sand Art. Or get creative with a Pic 'n' Paint pottery session. Pots of fun throughout the day.

Outdoor sports

Whether you’re bringing little kids, bigger kids, teens or adults with you, we’ve tried our best to make sure there’s fun, sporty stuff that interests everyone.

    All-action

    If you love heights and you're up for a challenge, then pop on your safety gear and check out some of our gravity-defying activities. Be sure to watch your step though and keep hold of your safety line as you hang high above the ground.

      Coaching confidence

      We’ve got all the sports equipment and facilities you could ever need, but some things you might want someone qualified to show you the ropes. That’s why we have lots of capable sports coaches who are able to teach you the basics or help you improve your game.
