Go Karting: TeamSport

Depending on the type of parent you’re Gravity Force offers two areas you can utilise while being in the facility.

Skiing: Christ’s College Ski Club

Skiing and snowboarding are physical demanding sporting activities. Christ College Ski Club has two slopes ranging in length and gradient to suit the ski level of its consumers.

The Nursery Slope at Christ’s College Ski Club is a 20m long gentle gradient ideal for those first tentative moments on skis. The Main Slope is 50m long with a progressive gradient for progressive learning.

The club also has a Donut Slope which is 40m long, a little steeper than the main slope and specially designed for donutting.

Family lessons start from £85!

Hide And Seek: Virginia Water Lake

The thick woodlands make the site a great place for families wanting to play hide and seek outside of the home. Located on the edge of Windsor Great Park, enjoy a pleasant walk around Virginia Water Lake and look out for the many curiosities, including a 100ft-high totem pole, a cascade, an obelisk raised by George II and part of a ruined city imported from North Africa.

Take a picnic or grab an ice cream from the kiosks dotted around the lake. Entry into the woodlands is free, parking is from as little as £1.50.


There’s no better time to improve your golfing ability than winter, it means you have months to go until summer where you will be able to play more regular because of the weather and length of daylight.

TopGolf is a great family sport activity in Surrey. With micro-chipped balls and virtual playing fields - as well as sports aside from golf - it’s an easy way to reach pro status.

How it works is you score points by hitting micro-chipped balls at giant targets on an outfield, kind of like darts but on an enormous scale. The closer you get to the bullseye, the more precious points you earn.

The same whizzy tech is applied to other sports, like TopBreak for snooker fans or TopShot where the game challenges you to hit consecutive targets at top speed! Finally, Footgolf serves up assured silly, slidey fun. It’s trickier than it looks, and you’ll be hard-pressed not to trip over your own feet - good luck!
