The Ballroom Climbing Wall

The Ballroom Climbing Wall is a dedicated bouldering centre for all abilities in Coventry, a place where anyone aged 5+ can come and give bouldering a go.

We take pride in the fact we have over 200 bouldering routes across 700sqm of climbing surface, created by the country's best climbers and setters.

Find us in the city centre opposite West Orchards shopping centre. Best place to park is either West Orchards (beware it shuts after 5:30!) or Bishop Street is a 5 minute walk.

We look forward to welcoming you to our centre - all you have to do is book your 2 hour time-slot by clicking here and fill in the online registration form (and make sure the parent or legal guardian has done so for any U18s), rock up and we will do the rest!

We help kids become enthusiastic and competent climbers. We teach NIBAS which is a structured programme designed to improve confidence and develop skill regardless of ability. The course consists of 6 sessions which can be booked flexibly over a period of 8 weeks for £48. Or if you would just like to try it, book on to any of our sessions at the weeknd as a one off.

The current government guidelines mean that we have to use a booking system to control the number of people in the building at any one time. Therefore all users of The Ballroom Climbing Wall must now book in a 2 hour time slot. You can book one 2 hour slot per day - this is to ensure all our community get the opportunity to book in whilst we are at a limited capacity.

All supervisors and new climbers to our centre will need to fill in the online waiver before they come. Click here to fill it in. Make sure to click preview document so you can read all of the conditions of the centre before signing! We will be reviewing our capacity and need for a booking system on a regular basis, and we will update our website and social media when changes to our policy are made.
