The SportsPad is great for many different types of bookings, and every booking comes with exclusive use of the venue! The best bit? Other than birthday parties, one price covers all players!

For every booking we will set you up on your chosen sport and game mode (we will help you choose the best games), and you can choose to play as many different sports and games modes as you want. The simulator can be adjusted to the age and ability of the players, and there are 5 different goalkeeper levels on the football games. You can also choose where on the field you want to take aim from, for example with football free kicks or rugby penalties.

For event and party bookings we will host the entire event, so help organise the teams, keep all the scores etc. For standard hourly bookings we will set up the challenges, and always be on hand to change the sports and advise which ones are the best.

Listed below are example of the types of booking we can accommodate, and what you can expect from your visit. All bookings can be made online, over the phone or in person. For standard hourly bookings the booking must be paid for in full at time of booking, for parties and events we will take a 50% deposit at time of booking with the balance payable on the day of the event.


Standard Hourly Bookings

Available all day every day, these cost £20 per hour off peak (for bookings finishing by 5pm Monday to Friday), or £30 per hour at other times. Recommended for groups of up to 8 players, though you can bring more. If you would like us to run the booking as a competition, we recommend that you book our event or birthday party package, but if you are just looking for a bit of fun, then this type of booking is for you!


Birthday Parties

Please see our separate birthday party page for details of our party package. The packages start at £150 during the week and £160 at weekends, for 10 children. Extra players can be accommodated and any number up to around 20 works fine! We can also offer 'mini'parties' for up to 6 players!


Children's Hosted Events (such as Junior Sports Club presentations or parties or school visits)

These are great for football club (or other sports!) parties or presentation evenings. Recommended for groups of 8 or more, they cost £40 per hour. Bookings of up to 2 hours can be made without a food and drink package, or 2-3 hours can be made with a food and drink package. If you take the food and drink package we will reduce the booking price by £10. The food and drink package starts at £6 per person, please call for more details.
