1. How long should the party last?
The length of the party all depends on how old the children are.
Please click on the 'Pricing' tab to give you an idea of how long the parties should last.
*Please note that a minimum party length is 2 hrs and a maximum party length for 5-6 year olds is 2 hrs.
2. How much will the party cost?
The cost of the party all depends on how many children attend, how old they are and how long the party is, as well as any additional extras.
Please see the 'Pricing' tab for a full pricing list.
*Please not that these prices do not include the hiring of the facilities.
3. What should I do about food?
Food is best done at the end of the party. Only 15 -20 mins is needed as children tend to eat very quickly. This is also a great time to cut the cake and sing "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"
Sports Nut now offers barbecues for their parties, at a cost of £5 per head (adults or children). This includes all drinks throughout the party, a hot dog, a burger and packet of crisps, as well as plates, cups, napkins, onions and condiments. For any more details please contact us by email. We have found that food should be very simple. Most parents opt for a hotdog, bag of crisps and a drink or a food party box consisting of a sandwich, cucumber/carrot sticks, chocolate biscuit, sausages, crisps etc if they provide it themselves.
4. What Sports can my son/daughter play?
We can cater for all games/sports, indoors or outdoors and for any age group. Our most popular sports/games are; Extreme Dodgeball, Ozzie End Ball, Football-Cricket, Capture the Flag, Hockey, Parachute Games and Diamond Cricket.
It is completely up to the Birthday Boy/Girl what they want to play at their party.
5. Do children need drinks breaks during the party?
Definitely. We like to keep the children hydrated at all times. Children tend to get very hot and sweaty during our Sports parties, so we like to have regular drinks breaks (water or orange squash should be fine). Every half an hour is normally best, which usually fits in to a natural break between sports/games.
6. What should the children wear?
Sports clothing is normally best. Shorts, t-shirt, tracksuit top and bottoms and trainers. Jeans are not a good idea as they can be very restrictive to children’s movement and can make the child very hot.
7. Do Sports Nut provide all the Sports equipment?
Yes. Sports Nut will provide all the sports equipment for the party.
8. Can Sports Nut provide any added extras?
To make the party extra special Sports Nut can provide a range of Bouncy Castles (including a 60ft obstacle course bouncy castle) at a special discounted rate, in conjunction with a Sports Nut party.
Please click on the link below to view our Bouncy Castle range and Prices.
As outlined in question 3 (above), SPorts Nut can also provide a barbecue for your Sports Nut Party at the cost of £5 per head.
10. What should I do about facility hire?
We can advise you on the type of facility hire that you need for a Sports Nut party. Generally the best facilities are Sports Halls and Schools. If you are not successful then Village Halls can be an option, but the size of the hall can sometimes be an issue (Bigger is definitely better!)
*Please note that in order to hire Davenies School, you must go through Sports Nut and not directly to the School.
11. What happens if a child gets injured?
If a child does get injured it is usually due to an accidental knock or bump. There will always be a 1st Aider on site who is qualified to administer 1st Aid to children. A 1st Aid box is always brought to all Sports Nut Parties.
12. Does the Birthday Boy/Girl get a present from the Sports Nut Team?
At every Sports Nut party, each Birthday Boy/Girl will receive a free Sports Nut Gold Medal.
You may also wish to purchase a Sports Nut polo shirt with our very own embroidered badge. We can also have the shirt printed with your child’s name and age on the back of the shirt to give it a more personal touch.
13. What about photography?
A photography service is available on request. During the party there will be a Sports Nut photographer present who will be taking group photos and action shots of the children. These photos will be uploaded onto our Sports Nut Gallery for all parents and children to view. Prints in a variety of forms can also be ordered via the website, which will make a great gift for parents, children and family members.
14. Do they need name tags?
Name tags are normally a good idea. This makes it easier for the coaches to get to know the names of the children, especially if the children are new to the Sports Nut parties.
