House Comp 2017

After the razzmatazz of last year's epic live-streamed House Comp we're heading back to our roots this year with an old skool comp, brought to you by folks who know what 'back in the day' really means. We're going classic on the comp experience this year, gearing up for a day that's all about getting together for some great skateboarding and general good times.

House Comp will be on Saturday, 16th September, and as always it's just £5 to skate or spectate for the whole day. We'll be back to our familiar comp structure, with events for 12 and Under, 16 and Under, Over 16 and Pro / Sponsored skaters. There'll also be a Best Trick event on a new 'mystery' piece, unveiled on Comp day.

The park opens at 10am with the Comp starting at 12.30. Spots to compete are available on a first come, first served basis, so we suggest getting here in good time to get your name down.

We've some fine sponsors this year with Death, Landscape, Bones, Alien Workshop, Heroin, Story, Kurb Krusher and Bones Bearings weighing in with some quality merch for winners and runners up, alongside Slugger, and Avit. Plus there'll be cash prizes up for grabs for the Pro / Sponsored event. And we'll be cooking in the car park again, with profits from food sold going to skateboarding charity SkatePal. So dust off your Koston 2s, get nailing those frontside noseslides and you're good to go. See you there.

 

Holiday Opening Times

Holiday times are nearly upon us so to keep you and yours entertained throughout from Mon 24th July until Sunday 3rd September we'll be open 11 while 9 weekdays and 10 while 9 weekends.

Get Kids Out Learning

With the summer holidays rapidly approaching we've hooked up with the inspirational scheme Get Kids Out Learning , which helps parents find places for fun activities, learning opportunities, and days out in and around their region. The campaign by educational organisation Tutora aims to help families steer clear of screens during the big break, and head out of the house instead, to access experiences which will keep children's minds ticking over til September rolls round. Skating is an activity which boosts brainpower as well as keeping you fit, so we're really proud to be part of this scheme which is bringing together some of the best learning spaces and venues around the UK.

Holystoked fundraiser

Saturday 17th June we're having one of our famousish punk and pool nights with the money going to the excellent @holystoked to help skating in India. It starts at 7 and is £5 in to skate and/or watch 4 great bands. Get on down.
