Children's birthday parties at Ipswich Sports Centres

Written by MiriamSpall on Monday, November 13, 2017 - 11:12

So much has been written about how to make a party enjoyable for children and thinking of every little detail to make it as memorable as possible, but... what about us parents? Is there a magic formula to create a stress-free party?

The fact is, many of us might feel inspired to organize an award-winning birthday party in the early years of our child’s life, perfect to the last painful detail, up until the point where we realise that children do not need perfection to have a fantastic time! Let’s face it, children are simple creatures, it doesn't take too much to make them happy, just add these simple ingredients to the mix;  friends, plenty of space to run around, snacks and drinks and the result will be; a very satisfied child.

If you are looking for a stress-free party and you live in Ipswich, take a look at our local Ipswich Sports Centres, sadly Maidenhall Sports Centre is now closed

Choose from a variety of fun activities aimed at children 1-12 years old.   It is reasonably priced and makes it very simple for us parents to just to sit back and relax, whilst the children play, just remember to book early as they are quite popular.

Every activity will take around 1.5h and for the remaining 30m, the children can indulge in some yummy party food. Please remember you need to provide your own catering.  Here are some of the themes you can choose from:
