When to book

Challengers sessions are in high demand – we’ve set up booking periods so that as many families as possible can use Challengers.

Booking periods

Our booking periods are promoted through the year and follow the school terms and holidays. For each booking period we will send you instructions when to book. Booking periods are well in advance of the events – up to 3 months.

So that bookings can be shared out fairly and equally to as many children and young people as possible, we have a maximum number of sessions that a family can book in each booking period.

Bookings open at 9.30am online and on the booking phone line.

The list below contains the dates of all upcoming booking parents:

2018 booking periods

Top-up periods

During a top-up period, booking restrictions will be removed and you will be able to book any spaces that are still available.

Waiting lists

If your preferred schemes are full you can book yourself onto waiting lists on the Booking Website – just click on the session you want (full sessions are displayed in red) and select ‘Book onto waiting list’.

We will call you if and when a space becomes available.
