Childrens' Parties Let us take the stress out of arranging your child's party. We offer themed sports parties for children aged 8-12yrs. Choose from football, basketball, netball, multi-sports, swimming, dance or cheerleading (age 5 ). Prices start from just £53.00 and our party packages include one hour with a sports coach followed by one hour in a private room where you provide your own choice of food and entertainment. Alternatively you can simply book a room for a disco.
We have a 25 yard pool and swimming lessons are available from age 4.
Disability Sports If you play wheelchair sports or if you like rugby then you should try, at least once, wheelchair rugby league. It's fast and furious and is played to rugby league rules. It's a summer sport, so games won't interfere with the basketball season. A league started in the spring of 2010. Sports wheelchairs are available. Anyone can play, children and adults. All you need is the upper body strength to push a wheelchair. For more information please ring Paul at Jigsaw on 0161 2536306 or email It is no coincidence that international netball and wrestling teams use Smithills Sports Centre regularly; the facilities are quite outstanding.
