Lovely place. The pool isn't overly busy although have to share a lane. Staff are nice. Changing rooms are clean and has a shower cubicles for the shower after. This place seems fairly well equipped.

Son went for a climbing birthday party and really enjoyed himself. We've been to several climbing walls and this one is good - good balance of fun and challenge.

I done the rockstart sessions on Tuesdays in January and had the help of staff to pass my safety test. I now go every week (often more than once) and cannot fault the staff and other climbers for their friendliness and support.

a really nice wall, a little small for my taste as it got crowded really easily, but the routes were well graded and well maintained. The cafe was nicely stocked with the usual cakes and tea with some chis and fried goods on offer too.

Excellent facility, friendly and helpful staff. The climbing wall here is slightly shorter than at Harlow (next local wall), but at 10m with some tricky overhangs and a variety of graded routes there is plenty here to while away the hours. Definitely recommend!

She was aged 6 and climbed right to the top only because they put sweets on a small ledge for her to get, she then wanted another go

We've been visiting Basildon High Sports for just under a year now - prior to this we'd never climbed at all. Everyone here - the staff and the climbers are extremely helpful and friendly; there's no clique, everyone is always offering help, advice and encouragement;...More
