What types of parties do you provide?
We offer a large variety of parties, which we split into two options: themed or sport. Themed parties include anything from superheroes to pirates and mermaids, while we offer sports parties from football to rugby to dance (and many many more!). We even offer specialist Toddler Activity parties for tots and pre-schoolers! Click here for a full list of our party plans and activities.

How can I book a S4K Party?
All of our Parties are available to book online via our booking page. Our form will capture all of the details that we need in order to make your child's day special. Once the form has been completed, our team will contact you within 48 hours to introduce themselves and discuss any additional requirements.
What venue should I book for a S4K Party?
All of the games we play can be delivered indoors or outdoors. Some games work better in a hall and some better outside so if the weather is being kind we may decide to mix the party between both. The coach will be prepared for games indoors and outdoors so the decisions can be made when the coach arrives. As a rule of thumb, we encourage parents to book venues with sports halls for children from 5 years and or for parties with a large number of guests. This is so that we can have as many children participating in the activities as possible at all times, rather than waiting for their turn. We have a list of "tried and test" venues available for our families, click here to take a look.
What do we do if it rains and we have no indoor facility available?
We will always recommend having an indoor area for games should it be required. If there is no indoor facility available the coach will do their best to make the best of the space they have. We will consider the extent of the rain, the age of the children and the activities being played and do our best to play as many games as possible.
I have a mixture of boys and girls, will they enjoy it?
All of our games are designed to be as inclusive as possible and we pride ourselves on the fact that we can find a game for everyone. We believe it is very important to make sure every child is involved at the same time and all of our games are chosen to be fun for both boys and girls.
Some of my child's friends are shy - will they join in?
It is not uncommon to have children who are a little bit more shy than others. We will do our best to bring them in slower without disrupting the flow of the party - something that our Sports Entertainers are excellent at doing. They may wish to play with some equipment aside from the activities before they join in the structured events which we would be happy for them to do.
Do S4K provide prizes?
We provide a medal for the birthday child(ren) at every party. We are happy to hand out any extras such as medals or trophies that you provide at the end of the party in a ceremony type event.
Do S4K provide food?
Sadly due to food standards regulations, we are unable to provide food for our parties.
Who will host my child's party?
You will receive the details of your party coaches on the week of the event. They will also be in touch early to introduce themselves to you and discuss the event. All of our instructors are fully DBS checked and work in local schools providing activities.
How much space do I require for a S4K Party?
The space required is dependent on the amount of children attending and the activities you would like us to provide. Most of our games can be adapted if we need to within reason. We strongly recommend having a separate area for parents that wish to stay to maximise the space for activities!
Who will be coaching my child?
Your child’s Sport4Kids session will be led by a trained and experienced team of coaches. Safety is paramount to us and all of our coaches are certified by the Disclosure Barring Service. All of our coaches are enthusiastic, fun and patient – we make sure of it!
What if I need to cancel a party booking?
We understand that sometimes things happen and a party cannot go ahead due to illness or unforeseen circumstances. For any party that is cancelled with over 48 hours of notice, we are happy to credit the party and move it to a different date - whether that be in a week or in a year.
Am I able to leave a deposit to secure a party booking?
We request all payment for party bookings up front in order to minimise the level of administration required. This can all be completed by the booking page in a few short steps.
Do you take last minute bookings?
We are lucky enough that we have a large number of talented Sports Entertainers that we can call upon to assist with our party programs, so we are often able to attend parties at short notice. We do not recommend waiting until the last minute though in order to avoid disappointment.
Do you offer discount to S4K Members?
Indeed we do! If you are a member at any of our S4K Clubs, you can expect 10% off your party booking with us.
