‘So come along – get fitter, healthier, muddier and… ASSAULT YOUR SENSES!’
COVID19 UPDATE (17/05/2021)
The safety of our customers and staff remains our top priority and we will therefore – in line with Step 3 of the government’s ‘road map’ – be implementing & ensuring the following social distancing measures;
A minimum 1 metre distance must be maintained by members of different households/bubbles
Sanitising gel is available to use before, during & after each session
Our muddy ditches will be OPEN!
Both male & female changing rooms are now open, in which face masks are to be worn by anyone aged 11 or over. Numbers will also be limited to ensure distancing between households/bubbles is maintained
The video safety brief will be held indoors with a minimum 1m distance maintained by members of different households/bubbles, as guided by floor tape. Only 8 households/bubbles per brief
Any minor first aid requirements are to be met by a member of the same household unless it becomes absolutely necessary for a First Aid-trained member of staff to intervene. Should this be necessary then PPE (mask & gloves) will be worn by the staff member
If you are experiencing ANY of the main symptoms of Coronavirus then you MUST NOT attend the session and instead follow the guidance on the NHS website
The playground is suitably easy to find (off main road, sign posted) and lots of fun, we arrived 15 mins early and straight away could see all the awesome obstacles, we then signed in and waited eagerly for the saftey breif, after this we was on our way. The course is set out perfectly and easy to follow, the majortiy of the obstacles have a scaled and RX version (easier/harder) so is suitable for all ages and abilities. The marshalls are great and are situated around at various points of the course, they are on help and hand out advice and technique if needed and reassurance to the little ones. After around an hour of “freeplay” they started to set up some challanges (tyre flip, hang and timed laps) these were fun (13 tyre flips in 60 seconds �). The facilites on site are plenty good enough for the size of the playground and bottles of water are only a £1 so were the wristbands. The only thing i would say about the playground is the drive once on site is extremely bumpy and unlevel even our family car at 5mph was bottoming out. Ideally this needs to be sorted as only 4x4s could make it over safely.

"Had a great day today at the playground. Was great to be able to try obstacles without the pressure of lots of other racers and glad I conquered my fear of the incline/decline monkey bars. Being able to train like I have today has helped me identify where my strengths and weaknesses are and what I need to focus on in the future to get better at something I love. – Nathan Hawkins"
