Kids Party - Great Experience Here
May 2017 • Family
Held my daughters 6th birthday party here. It was excellent. The staff were great with the kids, encouraging them but also instilling safety and care in them (and ultimately the parents watching!). As a modern venue the quality of the facilitates was top notch. Thanks guys.

We also had a party tea, which is managed by the sports centre, not the climbing centre. Tip here having attended other parties in this centre, get the cold picnic boxes with a couple of trays of warm food like chips – meant the delays we’d experienced at other parties didn’t happen serving food.

Great place but gets busy
Nov 2016 • Friends
For kids and big kids its a great place to learn. Classes are popular and they all look to be having a great time.

Compact bouldering area but with great routes.

Auto belay for loners or for the spare part to busy themselves on in a group of 3.

Good number of sport leads up suitably steep terrain.

Avoid busy periods, victim of its own success in this regard.

Much more than just a "sports centre add-on!"
Oct 2016 • Friends
Don't be fooled into thinking that the climbing wall is run by the sports centre in the way that the old one was. This is run as a private venture which makes it much better as the guys in charge take a pride in the ownership of the facility and the quality and "freshness" of the routes set. Huddersfield has been crying out for a nice facility like this for decades. They show great enthusiasm with the beginners and kids sessions and provide great background music for old farts like me. If all this wasn't enough, there are good off-peak discount rates and the chance to get a 10% discount card for the wonderful Grove pub opposite. You could be forgiven for thinking you'd died and gone to heaven. Keep up the good work team!

Hugely friendly and welcoming centre
Oct 2016 • Solo
I initially attended with a friend, having done a very small amount of bouldering before. I loved the experience, and joined up for the induction / training, which I was able to complete in three sessions.

The trainers were very experienced, interesting, entertaining, friendly, supportive and welcoming. There's a real feel of a community here, and despite the fact I live nearly an hour's drive away, I still go there as first preference.

The facilities are excellent and well maintained, there are a number of challenges you can undertake setup by the centre staff, and as an added bonus you can get a discount card to the best pub in Huddersfield ( across the road ) too. :)

Overall, the KAL sports centre this is a part of is an excellent facility, and an enormous boon to the city.

Nicas fun
Apr 2016 • Family
My son is working his way through the Nicas qualifications (he is 10). The facilities and staff here are excellent. They even seem to cope when the kids are grumpy & surly or telling me and the world that they can't do it.

Great Facility, Great Routesetting, Great atmosphere
Aug 2015 • Friends
Fantastic centre, light, open, clean, friendly staff...great atmosphere to climb in.

The centre has a very good route setting procedure, new routes on certain lines every fortnight if not weekly... so always new stuff to try... Routes are good quality and graded well too!

Bouldering room is a cosy room so creates a friendly atmosphere with other climbers....half of the Bouldering room is also re-set every month so again...new stuff to climb on a regular basis.

Beginners
Jul 2015 • Family
Visited this afternoon with my 6 year old son for a one hour beginners session.

We both loved it!

All staff were friendly and helpful, particularly Andy who was our instructor. He was great with my son and encouraged us both to push ourselves.

We'll definitely return.

Only slight gripe is having to pay extra for car parking when we'd already spent £40.... This is more the leisure centre though than the climbing centre.... How about reimbursing parking through discounts on future activities?
