Racketball

Racketball is the UK’s fastest growing sport! It is played on a squash court and is similar to squash. In racketball, a larger, bouncier ball and a shorter racket are used. 

Overall this makes the game much easier to pick up than similar sports like squash or tennis. Racketball is said to be, ‘easy to learn yet difficult to master’ which is one of the key factors in the sports recent growth.

Football

Our floodlit 4G 5 a-side football allows adults and children to enjoy their football without getting muddy or suffering from injuries so often caused by playing on hard artificial surfaces like astroturf.  The pitch is open at all times for casual play, there are also organised group sessions for adults and coaching for the children.
