How to Book

Even though these are drop-ins sessions, we do recommend booking in advance, as the sessions are very popular (especially the morning ones).

If you are new to Sportspark, the first time you book, it is best to call our bookings line on tel: 01603 592398. This number is only available for bookings between 10:00-21:00 hours,  Monday-Sunday.
