1 - 3 August 2014
We participated in a number of activities over the weekend and were treated wonderfully by the centre staff with lovely accommodation, tasty food and expert tuition.
For the activities the group were split into two to make it more manageable and because there was an age restriction for the Quad Bikes (the younger group did BMX bikes instead). Everyone had a great time as you will see from the testimonials and photo gallery below.
Diary of the Weekend
Friday: Arrived, settled in, had dinner then one activity per group
Saturday: Breakfast, 2 activities, lunch, 2 more activities, dinner then one last activity
Sunday: Breakfast, 2 activities followed by lunch before departing
I really enjoyed going on the 2014 Sportability Residential because I liked all the activities that I took part in, some of which I had not done before.
I thought the weekend was fantastic. I really enjoyed the BMX bike ride. That was my favourite bit. This was the best weekend I have been on.
Two words that sum up the weekend away for me are ‘inspirational’ and ‘admiration’.
I was overwhelmed with the persistence of individual members with different activities - from conquering fears of height and speed to trying out new activities. I had pure admiration for one member who would not give up on climbing the high pole, even though he has a fear of heights, he was dedicated to completing this challenge that he had set himself. And in front of his peers and the instructors he achieved this with great pride. A proud moment for all!
Every activity that we experienced over the weekend was so much fun, from BMX biking to archery, quad biking to climbing walls. Having fun and a little competitiveness along the way always brings an extra buzz! It was enjoyed by all which makes every second so worthwhile!
The food was great and all the staff were highly professional and very friendly. All members were extremely well behaved and a pleasure to be around. Other special moments were in the evenings where we sat outside our cabins with hot chocolates and treats - playing games, doing quizzes and having a good giggle chatting as a group!
Once again another great weekend with all. Cannot wait until the next one!!!!!!
