Who do we need to contact?

Moving forward (as of September 2023) all climbing sessions will be delivered by an external, long-term hirer. West Sussex's largest climbing provider, who already run 'Climb Chichester', 'Climb Hayling' and 'Climb Midhurst' will be coming to Bognor! Please see below for a word from Richard:

"I would like to introduce myself, my name is Rich and I am taking over the operating and running of all climbing activities at the climbing wall at the Arena sports Centre in Bognor Regis. I already teach and manage 3 other climbing walls and am excited to bring this facility under our control. We will be bringing across our hugely popular climbing club sessions to the wall in Bognor. I have lived in Bognor for a number of years and pumped to be able to teach on this wall. I will be bringing across our proven climbing award scheme to club members, where the children work through their various awards. We will be offering the following courses for the Autumn term: Wednesdays 5-6.30pm Beginners (8+) and Wednesdays 6.30-8pm Intermediate (10+). Saturdays - to be confirmed."
