Surrey Sports Adult Climbers

Adult Climbers



If you have never climbed before but are interested in bouldering, you will need to book an instructed session to learn the basic safety principles. Private Tuition can be booked for whenever we have an instructor available. Our private lessons start at £30 for a 1:1. Private lessons are perfect for families looking to try climbing together, first-time climbers who would rather not be in a group, introductions to ropes or bouldering and more. Our instructors can accommodate the session to your needs and will adjust their instructing style to suit you. To enquire about availability please email us at climbing@surreysportspark.co.uk or call us on 01483 683698 to book.


Our four-hour beginner courses for ages 14yrs+ will teach you everything you need to know to start bouldering and top rope climbing independently. Skills will include knot tying, fitting different harness types, belaying, catching falls, using auto-belays and bouldering safety principles. Our beginner courses run as 2x2hour sessions on Sundays 11:00-13:00 on the first two weeks of the month.


Public Sessions

If you are an experienced climber, you can come to any of our walk-in public climbing sessions and use the centre independently. At the start of your first session you will need to pass a bouldering only, or top ropes safety test with a member of staff. To use the auto-belays, you must be able to pass a top ropesafety test.

An experienced climber who has passed our safety test perfectly may supervise two novices or children at a time.

1:1 Coaching

Our coaching team includes Catalyst Coach Jules Astier and World Champion Paraclimber Matthew Phillips. Coaching sessions start at £30 and can be booked whenever we have an instructor available. To enquire about availability please email us at climbing@surreysportspark.co.uk or call us on 01483 683698 to book.

Guest Notice – Face Coverings

From Saturday 19th September, it will be essential for every person in Surrey Sports Park’s communal areas to wear a face covering. This is in-line with the campus-wide policy introduced by the University of Surrey.

The policy does not apply whilst taking part in sport and exercise and activity areas are exempt.

The University considers that the responsibility of wearing a face covering sits with individuals and we expect all our staff, students and public to adhere to this requirement where possible.

Please be mindful and respectful towards members of our community who, due to exceptional circumstances, may be unable to wear a face covering; their reasons may not be visible to others.

Thank you,

Surrey Sports Park
