Climbing Notice:

Our recently appointed Climbing Development Officer is leaving Hertfordshire Sports Village. In this interim period where we will be without a Climbing Development Officer, we will now be taking this opportunity to fully review the most appropriate way forward for the climbing wall and the climbing programme. Unfortunately, until further notice, we will be unable to continue with our term time and holiday Kids Village climbing programmes, climbing parties, climbing inductions and group climbing bookings.

As you know from your custom with us, we have high standards for the facilities and services that we provide and hold safety as a top priority. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality climbing sessions and in the interim period where we decide on staffing plans for the wall we do not want to make promises on delivering sessions or services that we are unable to fulfil. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. This decision has not been taken lightly and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your patience regarding the changes in the climbing wall and its programme. We will announce any further updates here in due course.

Please Note: Casual climbing will be unavailable during these times:

  • Mondays: 9.00 - 22.30
  • Wednesdays: 13.00 - 17.00

A Competency Assessment tests your ability to safely put on a harness, tie in and belay (no teaching is involved).
