    Birthday Parties

    Why not book a birthday party with us? You have all the fun and we take care of the rest! Most of our party bookings are made for weekends or during the school holidays. It is also possible to have parties after school on weekday afternoons.

    We can offer the following:

    • Toddlers’ Gym - This party is only suitable for children aged 1 -5. We set out a variety of equipment in our activities room for your children to explore including play tunnel, slides and benches. Parents supervise this type of party themselves unless a member of staff is specifically requested. We recommend that the maximum number attending is 30. A very popular option is to add a bouncy castle to this party.
    • Fun & Games - The games we use for this type of party vary according to the ages of the children invited. For 5-8 year olds we play games like Musical Statues, Stuck-in-the-Mud and “What’s the time Mr. Wolf?”. For older children the games are more sport orientated. If there is a particular game or sport you would like us to include, please let us know. The maximum number we recommend for this type of party is 20. This can also be combined with a bouncy castle.
    • Football -One of our staff looks after the hour of fun, picking the teams and organising matches and penalty competitions. We recommend a maximum of 20 to ensure everyone’s full involvement throughout.
    • Bouncy Castle - We have high sided castles for your children to bounce on to their hearts’ content. The maximum number we recommend is 12-15 and this type of party is most suitable for children up to the age of 8. Please remember that socks must be worn on the bouncy castle. Our bouncy castles can be added to all of our other parties.
    • Trampolining - A qualified trampoline coach ensures that everyone bounces in a safe way. The maximum number recommended is 18 and please note that we do ask for parents to assist with the supervision to ensure that safety regulations are met. Please remember that socks must be worn on the trampoline.
    • Combined Parties - You can combine your activities. Popular combinations are Toddlers’ Gym and Bouncy or Fun & Games and Bouncy.

    Please note that we do not provide catering for parties. However, we do provide tables and chairs in our lounge, activities room or squash court so that you can set out your partyfood while your children are having a good time elsewhere.

    • Tracy, Mum of 2 (12 and 9 years) Portslade

      All of our family use Portslade Sports Centre. I first started going about 20 years ago, and then after I had the children, I went back to aerobics classes and used the creche facilities. The ladies who ran it had been there for a long time and I felt were completely trustworthy. I still go to two classes a week and my Badminton club also use the facilities there. My sons have gone to the Fun Club and MultiSports - they have really enjoyed the variety of activities offered there, and having been going there so long, know lots of the staff there, who are all very friendly. They must enjoy them as, during the holidays, they look forward to it and always want to go! It would be great if the Fun Club / MultiClub could start a bit earlier to tie in with the exercise classes.

      We use the Sports Centre for a few things - I do aerobics there and my eldest daughter also does the Fun Club in the holidays sometimes, which she really enjoys as they do lots of craft activities and have a bouncy castle there at the end of the holidays. She doesn't have to go, but always asks to so I think that speaks for itself. My daughter does gym classes there, and is always happy to go even if none of her friends are going. It would be great if the creche could be open every morning. The staff there are always friendly and helpful.

      We've used Portslade Sports Centre so much - lots of birthday parties, fun club and multi-sports! The kids love it - the staff there are so friendly and do everything they can to help. Their birthday parties have been fabulous and I even had my birthday party - a trampolining one - there this year!
