Why join?

Joining our club is a great opportunity for all those who are passionate about climbing and for those who are interested in trying a new and unique sport. We're really looking forward to meeting all the new members whether you are a seasoned climber or if you've never stepped foot in a climbing wall. We run regular events including socials that range from pub crawls to laser quest, lots of internal and external competitions, outdoor trips throughout the year and lessons taught by our lovely exec. Our club caters to all climbers and we have plenty of friendly faces around. If you become a member of our club you will:

  • Have access to the climbing wall during club hours
  • Be able to hire our gear for free during club hours and helmets for outdoor trips
  • Allow you to sign up for our free top rope lessons (suitable even for absolute beginners!) and lead climbing lessons
  • Be able to buy BMC affiliate insurance at a cheaper price
  • Get a 15% discount at Lockwood’s in term 1 and 10% off in terms 2 and 3 - Lockwood’s is a local gear shop and a great place to spend some money
  • Access to our weekly emails detailing all club events including socials and competitions and sign-ups for trips (socials and competitions are free to attend)

Try climbing

We are holding taster sessions in weeks 1 and 2, Monday 3:15-5:15 and Wednesday 1:00-3:00. During the taster session you will get a chance to try some top rope climbing and bouldering. Please make sure you turn up 10 minutes before, only sign up for one session and only sign up if you are sure you can attend as these slots are very popular and will fill up quickly! Sign up for a 45 minute slot in these hours here. Before you attend you need to fill out the Warwick Sport climbing registration form.

If you would like to try out climbing before you join the club outside of tasters, you can buy a one time climb from the sports centre reception. Everyone who uses the centre for the first time will also need to complete an induction which involves a floor walk and a bouldering induction video.

The Wall

If you decide that you would like to climb more regularly at the centre you will need to look into either the Climbing (£200) or All Inclusive (£299) Memberships from Warwick Sport. Please note that the All Inclusive Membership only allows climbing during OFF PEAK HOURS, however, our club hours will still count as off peak for our club members. These memberships are NOT REQUIRED to become a member of the club but can be purchased either online or at the reception in the sports centre. Please note, all prices are based on 2020-21. Take a look at the sports centre website for more information.

Before you climb you will need to have an induction session at the wall which you can do during club hours. Please register online first so you can spend more time climbing!
