Welcome to the UEA Climbing Club, one of the biggest clubs on campus! 

Climbing is the perfect club to join if you want to challenge yourself, make a great bunch of friends and try a new sport! The Climbing Club is open to all abilities and levels and many people who join the club have never climbed before. We are also committed to making sure that all members are trained to the highest safety standards. 

We host 4 sessions a week which are included in your club membership fee. You will need to book in for these sessions as we have to control the numbers currently. The link is beneath the session times please put your full name. These sessions are only open to club members who have completed their training and sports park induction.

Session times

Monday at 3-5pm

Wednesday at 3-5pm 

Friday at 7-10pm 

Sunday at 4-6pm

 

Link to book your slot for sessions: Sports Park Session bookings 

Please make sure if you have booked a slot for a session and then cannot attend that you remove your name from the slot so it can be filled by someone else. We will not be able to let you attend the session if your name is not on the sheet due to the need to socially distance within the Sports Park climbing wall. 

We also run a weekly trip to Highball Climbing Centre in Norwich, which has incredible  bouldering and sport climbing facilities, including the massive DMM competition wall, access to auto-belay, 40 degree training board and a fully kitted gym.

 

What do we provide? 

We provide shoes and harnesses for all sessions as well as safety training so it doesn't matter if you don't own any kit. We also provide all kit for trips throughout the year.

Socials: 

When we’re not Climbing, we love socialising and we have a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials throughout the year so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. In the past, we have been on bar crawls, slacklined, had BBQs, gone trampolining, done film screenings, formal socials and much much more!

Completing your training:

Once you have paid your SAM and club member-ship fee you will need to sign up for a training session through the link below. When you have been trained you will then book an assessment through the sports park reception desk to make sure that you are capable of using the climbing wall safely. This assessment will cost you only £5 and is required by the SportsPark and lasts for 12 months.
