Specialists have been appointed to install a Clip 'n Climb at the new Dover District Leisure Centre.
The company Entre-prises is providing a colourful climbing arena with 16 challenges including the Big Cheese, Astroball, Speed Climb, Leap of Faith, Twister and Stairway to Heaven.
This will be part of the new £26 million centre at Honeywood Parkway, Whitfield, which is due to open early next year.
It will have an eight-lane county standard competition swimming pool, learner pool, sports hall, outdoor 3G pitches, squash courts, and a 120-station fitness suite.
Cllr Trevor Bartlett, cabinet member for property at Dover District Council said, “We hope to make Dover District Leisure Centre the destination of choice when it comes to getting our residents more active and enhancing the range of sporting opportunities on offer.
The new Clip ’n Climb will really complement the leisure offer within the locality and offer people something new and challenging.”
Entre-prises is has more than 30 years' experience is designing bespoke climbing frames to encourage more people to take up the past-time.
Clip ’n Climb uses a special technology so a climber can go up without the need of someone to control the ropes at the bottom. The various heights and levels also ensure that anyone can enjoy the climbing experience from the age of four upwards. It also for adults of any age and for all abilities.
Mick Cooke from Entre-prises said, “The climbing facility has been designed to ensure that it has something for everyone whether they want to conquer their fears on the vertical drop slide or race against the clock in one of the timed challenges.
"We are looking forward to delivering this project and providing the community of Dover with a fun and innovative climbing experience.”
John Bates is the business development director at Places Leisure, which will manage the new venue.
He said: “Climbing is a sport which can be enjoyed alone or together with the whole family and we are excited to be able to offer this activity when the new centre opens early next year.£
