ROEFIELD Leisure has new beginner junior and adult climbing courses available this New Year for those who fancy trying something a little different.

The popular courses will focus on basic skills and techniques on the superb eight-metre high indoor climbing wall, including use of equipment, belaying, tieing in, safe rope climbing, general safety and lots more instruction with one of their qualified instructors.

The junior courses are five weeks in length and begin on today from 2-3 p.m. and Tuesday from 5-6 p.m. (these are separate courses).

The adult courses are two-hour intensive courses on Saturday, January 21st (3-5 p.m.) and Saturday, January 28th (3-5 p.m.). Both are one-off separate courses.

Once the climbing courses are completed, it is recommended to try the centre’s climbing clubs to progress with your climbing skills through the week and at weekends.

Places are limited, so if you are interested please book now to confirm your place.

For more information on the courses, clubs and prices please contact Roefield Leisure on 01200 442188 or call in and speak to a staff member.
