Sports & Fitness

Looking after our health and having fun

With our own gym equipment and field located at the back of the center, we provide regular sports and fitness sessions. We promote a healthy lifestyle through a range of different activities, from sports days to local walks.

During the summer, champions can enjoy taking part in hiking trips in the local area, such as Roseberry Topping and Low Force Waterfall.

Champions also take part in dance sessions as part of our media projects, filming dance videos such as “Thriller” and “This Is Me”.

In 2023 and 2024, Five Acres received grants from Great Aycliffe and Middridge Partnership (GAMP) for a accessible tricycle and three Jorvick Tricycles. This enabled Champions to have access to regular bike riding sessions.


When the weather is fine we spend a lot of time outdoors. We also have space indoors where our champions can take part in table tennis, pool, indoor ball games and fitness classes.
