Open Club

Tuesdays and Thursdays open club is where young people get to decide on what they want to do each week.

Parkour

Parkour(pdf, 147KB) originated in the Parisian suburbs and is based around the idea of getting from one point to another as gracefully as possible. It combines running, acrobatics and gymnastics all performed in an urban environment. However before you do it out on the street learn how to do it safely!

Our mega successful Parkour night run by Ash and Bobby, two professional “Traceurs” runs every Thursday. The coaches can teach you all the landings, skills and tricks you will need using a variety of gym equipment. We also run an AQA accredited course in Parkour.

Young people from Ham Parkour club recently created a film of their performances in the grounds of Ham House and won a national BFI Youth Film competition!
