As part of the forthcoming 'Workplace Challenge' Sport Birmingham will be hosting a 'Wake up Shake up September Challenge' across the city. As part of this campaign Ackers will be running a number of 'Have a Go' sessions throughout September just for adults. A Have a Go! session is exactly that - a session where you can 'have a go' at a new activity with direction from a qualified and experienced instructor.
Each session costs just £20 per person, is for 1.5 hours and includes instruction and equipment.
Sessions have to be pre booked in advance by calling our reception team on 0121 772 5111.
Come on you own, with a few friends or get a team from your office together one night after work or at the weekend.
Activities on offer include Archery, Canoeing, Skiing & Climbing.
Please see our timetable below for dates and times but if you have a group of 4 or more then we will be happy to book a day and time that is more convenient for you. Just give us a call.

All our outdoor adventure activities take part in over 75 acres of diverse landscape and habitats ranging from open grassland, woodland and marsh cut through by the River Cole, the Grand Union Canal, and Mainline Railways. This creates a fascinating area to have a great outdoor adventure. We are often described as a hidden urban oasis, a green gem that overlooks Birmingham city centre.

  • a residential centre designed for you to stay and be active,
  • a canoeing centre with canoes, kayaks and bellboats,
  • also archery zones, team building areas, jungle challenge course, and adventure trek.
