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: trampolines, air track, foam filled pits, and our giant inflatable 'challenger'. 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 variety of sweet and savoury snacks and unlimited juice.
Parties are available on Saturday afternoons only. To check availability, call the South Durham Office on: 01388 811877.
Parties for Infants - 0-3 (children turning 3 years old and under)
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 toys and the inflatables will also be blown up throughout the session.
- During this party all adults within the gym are welcome to take photos.
Pre-School Parties – 3/4/5 (children turning 4 and 5 years old)
Our pre-school parties offer slightly more structure with a ‘free play’ element, giving children time to explore the gym at their own pace. Within these parties, one parent is required to accompany their child at all times unless they are willing to participate fully alone. For babies who wish to attend the party and are toddling around, toys can be put out and these children are welcome to explore the gym with an adult rather than joining in the structured part of the session.
Structured Parties 5+ (children turning 5 years old and above)
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.
- 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.
