Clip ‘n Climb at Dover District Leisure Centre in Kent

If the kids are climbing the walls this Easter then a new attraction at a Kent leisure centre should be perfect for budding monkeys.

The High Places Clip ‘n Climb activity at Dover District Leisure Centre is now open between 9am and 7pm.

The indoor climbing attraction is the perfect place for both children and adults to burn off excess energy and get everyone out of the house - even in poor weather.

Clip ‘n Climb is a unique and extraordinary climbing experience for climbers of all ages (four and up) and abilities.

The centre’s colourful arena for Clip ‘n Climb features 16 impressive fun-themed climbing experiences as well as 20 individual climbing lines up to a maximum height of 7.5m, each boasting different striking designs.

“Clip ‘n Climb is fantastic and can help children in a number of different ways,” said Ryan Bacmeister, Clip ‘n Climb manager.

“Apart from the obvious fitness benefits in which they can work on building muscle strength, it also tests agility, balance and helps develop problem solving among them which in turn helps strengthen their confidence.

“These children have to think before scaling these challenging walls and this is hugely important for their development. I also love Clip ‘n Climb because it is a sport that is not competitive.”

The area can also be used for birthday parties so kids can enjoy a brilliant climbing adventure party.

The impressive new centre in Whitfield, Dover is part of a £26 million investment from the council.

Other impressive facilities include Kent’s first accessible Swim England-certified eight-lane, short course championship swimming pool, a four-court sports hall, a 120-station gym and fitness suite, studios for aerobics and group cycling, two squash courts which can also accommodate spectators and two 3G outdoor and floodlit five-a-side pitches.
