Welcome to the pink gym! We are here to teach you to be the best you can be in a fun and safe environment!

Birthday Parties

Your Party at South Durham Gymnastics Centre

We guarantee a memorable day with exclusive use of our fantastic Pink Gym for one whole hour, where our trained coaches will organise, amuse, supervise and instruct the children on all the apparatus, including the trampolines, foam filled pits and inflatables. Our coaches are experts at keeping the children engaged, safe, and challenged regardless of previous gymnastics experience, with fun and laughter filling the gym! Parents, relatives and friends can watch the antics unfold from the viewing gallery above!

On arrival, you can expect a meet, greet, and induction chat from our coaches. They will introduce themselves to the children and explain what they will be doing, along with the rules. This is very important as safety is paramount.

At the end of their gym time, the children will go upstairs to our South Durham Diner for a 30 minute tea party. This will consist of a cold buffet with a choice of Tuna, Ham or Cheese Sandwiches (2 out of 3), with a variety of sweet and savoury party foods and unlimited juice.

Parties are available on Saturday afternoons:

  • 2.15pm - 3.45pm
  • 3.15pm - 4.45pm
  • 4.15pm - 5.45pm

To check availability and book, please call the South Durham Office on: 01388 811877. 

Free Play / Pre-School Parties:  0 - 4 Years

Book a ‘free play’ party session where children can explore the gym and all its obstacles in a safe environment. All children attending the party must be accompanied by an adult who will help support throughout the party. Baby and toddler toys will also be available throughout the party.
During this party all adults within the gym are welcome to take photos.

Structured Parties: 5+ Years

Our fully structured parties give children the whole party experience along with all the challenges that come with gymnastics. After a series of games and warm up activities, the children will be split into smaller groups and taken around the pieces of apparatus with our coaches, allowing them to either practice their favourite gymnastics skills or to try something completely new. Within these parties parents can relax and watch the party from our viewing gallery located upstairs next to our South Durham Diner. The children even have access to our inflatables for the ultimate party experience. 

During the above parties photos can be taken by the birthday child’s parents from inside of the gym, and from spectators on the balcony.
