Sporting facilities: Helping to blow away the cobwebs
January 10, 2022

Rydal Penrhos’ exceptional sporting facilities are available for those looking to expand or blow away the cobwebs following the festive period.

The great facilities at Rydal Penrhos have enabled me to offer my clients an elite, spacious and focused environment to train in. The new modern equipment, big space and high level of cleanliness have allowed me to grow my business offering a wider range of fitness option to more people.” – Simon Lacey (Personal Trainer) 

Once the Christmas season comes to a conclusion and the cheeseboard, wine and other treats become a distant memory, the time comes to focus on health and either maintaining or boosting fitness levels.  

New Year’s resolutions about getting in shape are commonplace throughout most households in the United Kingdom. Blowing away the cobwebs in January after the festive period is something many aspire to but find difficult to accomplish for one reason or another.   

It can be quite overwhelming – with social media filled with posts about body transformations and adverts for cut price gym membership. Couple this with work and family commitments and it’s not hard to see why many people fail to meet their objectives.   

There are a plethora of fitness groups and trainers that can help you accomplish your individual goals in the short and long-term. For any groups such as this looking to expand, Rydal Penrhos has first-class facilities to give them and those attending another major boost.   

The school was recently used by three-time defending Super League champions St Helens for a special pre-season camp to further testify the outstanding facilities available that are used weekly by local clubs and teams in addition to prestigious organisations such as Cricket Wales and Glamorgan Cricket Club, who recently held a coaching day at Rydal Penrhos.   

This also includes Welsh youth rugby, cricket, netball and hockey squads who hold residential training camps with us. The school’s incredible New Field sporting venue -which has its own pavilion – regularly hosts Cricket Wales youth matches and has seen iconic figures such as Andrew Flintoff attend.  

Rydal Penrhos has a vast array of facilities, including a Sports Hall and Fitness Suite that can be used for netball, basketball and indoor cricket nets, with the astroturf surface providing a floodlit training area for pupils and clubs across the region to utilise.  

The school also has its own outdoor cricket nets area, no fewer than five immaculate rugby pitches, seven outdoor tennis courts, two squash courts, four Eton Fives courts and a dedicated short game golf area for anyone wishing to hone their bunker, chipping or putting skills.  

If that wasn’t enough, Rydal Penrhos has an RYA accredited Sailing and Water-Sports Centre as part of our campus and this is available to visiting groups.  

Our instructors can put together taster sessions or a day on the water for our more qualified visitors, which has been part of the school’s history for more than 60 years and something pupils absolutely love all through the academic year.  

The school’s sporting facilities are available for evening and weekend hire and during all school holidays. For more information email events@rydalpenrhos.com or call 01492 530155.
