YMCA It’s a Knockout Family Fun Day


We hosted the ‘It’s a Knockout’ Family Fun Day on Sunday, 25th June at the YMCA Village and it was a huge success!

The YMCA Village was teeming with activities for the whole family to enjoy!

Inspired by the popular 80’s TV programme ‘It’s a Knockout’, we had local businesses put together teams and come and compete at the YMCA Village in a variety of fun games as part of a FREE family fun day!

Families and friends were invited to cheer on the teams and watch as participants tackled each obstacle with enthusiasm (and maybe some skill!), all while raising funds for the YMCA.

Plus, we had loads of FREE taster sessions and challenges for everyone to enjoy.

Participants took part in family, adult, and youth workouts led by our knowledgeable gym team. They engaged in fitness-based activities and challenges led by our expert team, pushing their limits and taking part in outdoor fitness challenges that tested their strength, endurance, and determination!

For the younger ones, there were specially curated activities designed to keep them entertained and active.

Climbing: Participants got a taste of the exhilarating world of climbing with taster sessions led by our experienced team. They experienced the thrill of indoor climbing, bouldering, and Clip ‘n’ Climb, all in our incredible Climbing Centre.

Gaga Ball: Everyone joined in the fun with this fast-paced and energetic game that combined dodging, striking, and running.

Football Drills: Participants sharpened their football skills with drills that focused on technique, agility, and precision. They engaged in activities like the crossbar challenge and hit the target, putting their accuracy and skills to the test!
