We are looking to build a climbing centre in central Lowestoft to meet the growing popularity of the sport. We currently only have use of a very small wall, which is the only facility within over an hours drive from the area. Over the past year the demand has hugely outgrown the facilities we currently have.
We hold both childrens and adults sessions which are over subscribed. We would like to be able to cater for the increasing demand, as well as being able to further progress the members we already have. As well as having many children and adults of all ages, our youngest member being only 4, we also have many other groups wanting to use a climbing wall. These include school groups, youth groups, disability and special need groups, recovery groups, vulnerable people.
We would like to be able to provide safe, quality facilties for all these groups to use.
With climbing being added to the olympics in 2020, we feel it is the perfect time to improve our facilities and progress the sport.
As well as a fun activity for all we have many talented people many of whom are children who have recently started competing, and some who are considering climbing as a career.
Having a purpose built climbing centre would not only meet the demand that is already in place, but offer opportunities for many more to get into the sport.
