Gymnastics in Ipswich offers 2 formats for its birthday parties, either Structured or Un-Structured so please see details below outlining the differences. All parties are based in the Recreational Gym. However if the Main Gym is not being used for an event then access will be permitted to this area, although a small surcharge will be made if you wish to use both gyms.
 
 
 
 
 

Structured Party 

Active ImageA structured party has 2 party coaches leading the first hour of play, they will organise the children and play gymnastic type games, obstacle courses, races, parachute games etc.

Following this first hour of structured play the children will then have 20 minutes of free-play time where they can go back and re-visit their favourite parts of the gym or bounce on the trampoline. The party coaches will supervise this play and it is at this point that the adults in your group can come into the gym to take photo's etc, (although we do ask that you complete one of our photography monitoring forms for child protection purposes).

Once this period of free playtime is over it’s a quick visit to the changing rooms to use toilets, wash hands etc then up to the balcony area where your party food can then be served. You can bring a portable stereo if you wish to have music during your food time - the party coaches will advise you as to the location of sockets.

We do not get involved with catering therefore all food must be supplied by you the hirer but we can give you access to a small kitchenette area to make drinks, plate up food etc. Please be aware that this is not a fully equipped kitchen.

We recommend that you advise your guests that the party is for 1hour 45 minutes as your total booking time of 2 hours does include 10 minutes to clear away after food.

We do ask that guests are collected promptly from your party and that you vacate the party area swiftly at the end of your 2 hours to ensure no delay is caused to the party that follows your booking

 

Un-Structured Party

 An un-structured party is purely hire of the facility/rooms from us. There will be 2 members of staff in the gym to monitor our health and safety policies, but the children must be supervised by you the hirer and it is your responsibility to ensure that there are enough responsible adults in the gym to support the children during their play. We recommend no more than 5 children per adult. Photo’s and video whilst the children are at play can be taken although we do ask that you complete one of our photography monitoring forms for child protection purposes.

The children will have one hour and 20 minutes of playtime in the gym, followed by a quick visit to the changing rooms to use toilets, wash hands etc then up to the balcony area for your party food.  You can bring a portable stereo if you wish to have music during your food time - the party coaches will advise you as to the location of sockets.
