New Activities for Summer 2013 at Sandy Balls, New Forest

Falconry at Sandy Balls, New Forest

Sandy Balls has been making memories for our guests for nearly 100 years, during which time many families have returned year after year to enjoy our wonderful holiday village.

We have been working hard on developing our activity programme with something new for all ages.

For our younger guests, we will be running Kids Jet Ski sessions on the outdoor pool. These inflatable mini jet skis are great fun for children up to the age of 10. Our new multi-sports session is also tailored to get younger children running around and playing various sports.

For older children (and grown up children too!), we are delighted to welcome back Segways. Segways are two wheeled, battery powered electric vehicles. A fun and unique experience, Sandy Balls has introduced a couple of options for you to try. We ran Segway Tours and Segway Olympics during May Half Term and had great feedback so will be including these as a regular addition to the summer programme in 2013.

Segway Tours offer you the chance to try out these fun vehicles on the pathways around the Estate. Our Segway Olympics is a group session where you can laugh at Dad as he competes in the egg and spoon race (on a Segway of course), or race your friends in the 100m sprint.

For water lovers, we have partnered with the New Forest Water Park to introduce to you exciting new water sports. Scream with excitement on the banana boats or ringos, a firm favourite with families and groups, test your skills with water skiing or wake-boarding on a state of the art pylon cable, or enjoy the new craze of Stand Up Paddle Boarding.

Looking for something different? We will be introducing a Falconry Experience to our programme so you can enjoy these fabulous birds in the wonderful Sandy Balls setting.

Falconry is the art of flying trained hawks at wild quarry in their natural environment. It is an old and very spectacular sport. Our sessions, suitable for adults and children over 6 will give you the opportunity to get up close to these wondrous birds and fly them.

For arts and craft fans, we will of course have our family favourites so you can still enjoy a wide variety of craft activities from biscuits and baskets to tie dye. We will be introducing Candy Cones which we expect to be a big hit with the kids, Coaster Making and Treasure Boxes, where children can decorate and make a box to store their keepsakes.

Book now to create a summer of fantastic memories for all the family.
