Children’s activities

YMCA Hawker has something for children of all ages with activities and classes from dancing to cycling every day of the week,  a fun two-floor soft play centre, and gym that is open to anyone over the age of 11 and lots of outside space for running around.

Why not bring a ball and enjoy the large playing fields and basketball hoops; borrow rackets for a game of ping pong or hire a court for tennis? We run a range of tennis courses throughout the year, for players of any level.

Those looking for after-school care and holiday clubs need look no further; we run a range of playschemes that make full use of the facilities to provide fun and affordable childcare.

If you would like to arrange a birthday party, The Pod soft play has a range of options for all budgets and we also offer dance and other themed parties on request.

The fully equipped gym is large and airy with both and cardio-vascular equipment. Join as a member or pay-as-you-go to suit you.

We run over 50 classes a week. From Zumba to Pilates and Line Dancing to Insanity, there is something for all ages and levels of fitness.


Our idyllic riverside café serves a wide range of food at excellent prices. Enjoy a drink with friends as the children have fun in the outside play area. There is a special children’s menu and plenty of buggy space. All profits are used to fund YMCA projects that help vulnerable local people.
