Easter Camps Alex Tudor visit

How our Easter Camps 2021 became our new success story

Over 1000 participants enjoyed their Easter break with us in 2021. Our Easter sports camps proved a great success after the uncertainty we all experienced at the beginning of the year.

We made great memories, met top sports people and enjoyed staying active!

Our Multi Activity Camps, Netball Fever and The Cricket Academy revived venues across the country this Easter break.

Activated with star visits stories

Young participants engaged with our inspirational star visits.

They met Alex Tudor, Graeme White, Lauren Tait, Megan Thorne and Ashleigh Jay. Their presence at different venues gave the children the opportunity to make great memories and take away gold nuggets of top sports experience and stories.

Coach Max Everett, who hosted Alex Tudor’s visit in one of our Easter camps, talks about the value such visits bring:

“Having a star visit Activate Camps is an amazing opportunity for the kids. They are able to ask questions and learn from former and current professional players. It’s not only the kids that can get star struck but also the coaches!”

Fun and motivation at high level in Easter Camps

Ex-England international cricketer Alex Tudor joined our participants both on the pitch and in a Q&A session.

Watch him bowl, in the video below, with each group so batters could test their skill against him. They all engaged and it felt like a big game unfolding right there, at our venue!

Later, Alex Tudor shared his experience, talking about what it takes to get to that elite level of cricket. Children and coaches alike were captivated by his stories.

Check out our Alex Tudor video highlight of the whole week of sports camps.

Stay tuned to our social media channels. We will have a lot more video content with our star visits and Ambassadors for you soon.

Covid safety at the forefront of Activate Camps

After a lot of uncertainty and strain we all felt through this pandemic, our sports camps brought back the cheer, the inspiration, the focus for everybody to be at their best.

We kept our camps Covid safe with measures in place to reduce virus related risks. With the same Covid related safety in mind, and the prospect of making further great memories while improving skills, we are looking forward to our summer camps now.

Activate Camps receives Feefo Trusted Service Award 2021

We are excited to announce we have won the Feefo Trusted Service award, an independent seal of excellence that recognises businesses for delivering exceptional experiences, as rated by you.

Created by Feefo, Trusted Service is awarded only to businesses that use Feefo to collect genuine reviews and insights. Businesses who meet the high standard, based on the number of reviews they have collected and their average rating, receive the award. A highly valued badge of approval, this accreditation remains unique, as it is based purely on interactions with real customers. As all reviews are verified as genuine, the accreditation is a true reflection of a business’s commitment to outstanding service.

Feefo gives Trusted Service awards to businesses that have collected at least 50 reviews between January 1st 2020 and December 31st 2020, with a Feefo service rating of between 4.0 and 4.4. However, this year the criteria have been adjusted to avoid penalising businesses suffering unduly from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Organisations that won a Trusted Service award last year but struggled to achieve the required number of reviews this year, have been assessed on an average rating over the 24-month period covering 2020 and 2019.
