First coached 1 to 1 skate lesson for autistic 11year old
Aug 2021
Today I took my 11 year old autistic grandson for his first1 to 1 skate session. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed by the vast facility, and particularly pleased with the way that young coach HARRY managed the session. He is an extremely competent and encouraging young coach; a good role model for youngsters. My grandson was thoroughly excited and very satisfied by his session. As a retired sports coach myself, I witnessed some good coaching skills and very progressive, safe instruction. I would highly recommend the facility and coach Harry in particular. I am very pleased that I chose coaching at SourceBMX, and will most certainly be booking further 1 to 1 coached sessions for my grandson.

Popped in today whilst on holiday. Looks an amazing place for BMX and to skate. Staff in the shop were amazing and very helpful. Just wish we had somewhere just as good back home.

Great to sit and watch
Jul 2019 • Family
I took a 5 year old family member in here the other day. It’s free to go in and watch.
We headed downstairs to where the viewing area and cafe are and found some stools overlooking the ramps/bowls, whatever the technical term is!
I said to my little companion that a very long time ago it used to be a swimming pool and she asked if the middle section used to be the hot tub! I don’t think I knew what a hot tub was when I was five!
We had a slush puppy and a coffee and watched the BMX riders and scooter riders perform some tricks.
Loved the wall display of artistically decorated skateboards. Going to watch something like this is a good way to stir some interest in getting involved in this sport.

Hi, Thanks for the positive review - it's great you had such a good time spectating and enjoying our cafe. If your little companion fancies trying out it out for his or herself, we offer a free taster session which includes all equipment hire and a warm welcome from one of our qualified marshalls/coaches. Please let us know any ways we could improve and move up to 5 stars! ;-)

Can not recommend enough.

Great venue. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff. Friendly approachable coaches topped off by great customer service provided by the management - particularly Matt for whom nothing is ever too much trouble and makes customers feel really valued.
We’ve been visiting for years and will be visiting for many more yet I imagine as it caters for all ages from toddlers to adults.
Really nice little cafe bar with a good view of the main park to spectate.
My children would particularly like to mention Greg, Stewart, Phil, Jack, Josh, Bollaj? Ali & Glen who show them masses of both patience and support throughout their coaching sessions. Never had a single problem here that hasn’t been sorted immediately which these days is rare.
Keep up the good work guys!

We stoped by for a ice cream for the kids here.
Apr 2019 • Family
The ice cream was yummy and tasted amazing. It really differentiates between a good quality and poor quality ice cream. Not very sweet and my kids loved it all.
Surprised the prices where quite affordable. P

Amazing place and amazing staff
Mar 2019 • Family
1st time visit here. I took my 2 young kids, armed with there own scooters. Guy that served me explained they were not suitable. They have have hire scooters so this wasn’t a problem. The guy spent at least 5 minutes sorting a fault on my daughters scooter anyway. He was super friendly and helpful. The venue and facilities are incredible. So pleased I took them. Will definitely make this a regular thing😃

Amazing subterranean skate park converted from Victorian swimming pools

My grandson loves this place. always busy with bikes and scooters but never overcrowded. Good behaviour seems to be the norm, with everyone just enjoying the well-designed facility.

Took a youth group here on the Wednesday night girls only session, the staff were friendly, patient and helpful and sorted all the group out with equipment and advice.
The other people using the park at the same time were so tolerant and older ones really looked after the younger ones which was fantastic support.
Would definitely go again.
