Birthday Parties

There’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than with a high tempo to tire out your little ones, keep them active and burn off all that cake!

At Colchester Sports Park we offer a variety of fantastic birthday parties in Colchester for all ages including:

Pump Track Birthday Party

Does your little one consider themselves the next Sir Chris Hoy or Laura Kenny? If so our Cycle Pump Track Parties are perfect for children aged 10 or above.

Get exclusive hire of the track, with bike and helmet hire included in the price.

To ensure everyone has a great time, we limit Pump Track parties to 8 participants, with drinks and refreshments available from our on-site Paddy & Scott’s Coffee Shop.

Multi-Sports Birthday Party

Are your little ones sports crazy? Then you have to consider a Multi-Sports Birthday Party at Colchester Sports Park, where up to 15 guests can enjoy a whole hour of non-stop sport in our indoor sports hall.

Suitable for 5-13 year olds, our Multi-Sports parties can consist of Rounders, Kwik Cricket, Hockey, Football or a mixture of them all! Just let us know what you’d prefer when booking.

Your sporty crew can enjoy 1 hour of lung-busting activity, plus 45 minutes in our Party Room for food and drink*.

Please be aware that parents and/or immediate family may arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the party to set up and remain for 15 minutes after the party to pack away.

*Optional packages for food available at an additional cost.

Football Party

Think you’ve got the next Harry Kane or Lucy Bronze in your brood? What could be better to showcase their skills to their mates than a Football Party at Colchester Sports Park?

Our Football Parties are for 5-13 year olds, with a maximum of 15 guests enjoying a whole hour of football fun in our Sports Hall, and another 45 minutes in our party room for food (available at an additional cost).

Bubble Football Party

A football party with a twist…

Sporty fun in a bubble to get the party popping. Any sport-loving child is sure to enjoy jumping, shooting and bouncing their way to victory at a Bubble Football party with their friends – an ab-zorb-ing activity for all!

Bubble Football is ideal for kids aged 9 and above, and parties are based on a maximum of 12 guests (sharing 10 bubbles). Wind down and refuel after an hour in the Sports Hall with 45 minutes in the party room for refreshments.

Birthday Party Catering

No birthday party is complete without snacks – especially after the fun of releasing some energy on the bikes or in the Sports Hall!

Let us take care of the catering for you; choose from a selection of hot food (for an additional fee of £60) or cold food options (for £50) to take the fuss and hassle out of party planning whilst making sure the little ones are well refuelled after the sporty action. We’ll chat you through the menus at time of booking and you may book catering up to 14 days before your party date.

If you would prefer to arrange this yourself, you are welcome to bring your own drinks and cold buffet-style snacks to set up in the party room or visit Paddy & Scott’s coffee shop for cake, hot chocolate and more. We do only ask that no hot food (such as pizza, burgers etc) is brought onsite.

Please give the Sports Park team a call on 01206 282000 to chat through menu options, if you have any questions, or would like to make a booking.

Please note that payment will be taken at time of booking, which secures your chosen date.
