The Pioneer Club
The Pioneer Club is a large, multi-functional Community Centre set up in 1941 as a charity offering youth club facilities, the oldest indoor skate
park in the UK, a Main Hall for musical performances, various rooms for hire and a community cafe.
The club specialises in supervised skateboard coaching for youngsters, and since the opening of the skate park in 1987, has always encouraged a new, young generation of users to come up through the ranks.
Sunday morning skate school (10am – 12 noon) and the Thursday beginner’s session (6-8pm) are both very popular for absolute beginners of all ages and those honing their new skills.
Especially popular with the youngest visitors are the dedicated scooter sessions and the weekends provide a great opportunity for parents to join in too! It’s also a great party venue and can be booked for private hire!
Skateboarding and scootering are not only an excellent way to keep fit but can also help build confidence in youngsters, as well as encouraging skills such as teamwork, problem solving, balance and creativity.
On a Saturday afternoon there is also a supervised Youth Drop-in where young people aged 12+ can play table tennis, games, X-box or even just chill, from noon until 4.30pm.
This marvellous facility is based in Bernards Heath on the site of the old Fire Station, exactly 1 mile from the centre of St Albans and there is ample free parking.
