Why is our Climbing wall for sale?
Yes, we are offering our climbing wall for sale!
Established in 2011, we are a family run business and running our own climbing centre has been a very rewarding experience. However, our opening hours no longer fit in with family life. We have reduced our hours to try and better fit our needs but this also means that we are restricting the centre’s ability to attract a wider audience.
The climbing wall is owned and operated by a limited company that we incorporated. We are only selling the climbing centre business as a going concern and not the limited company, as we intend to take that in a different direction.
What we offer can be seen from the other pages on this website. The centre is around 4200sqft of space with toilet, reception and office facilities. Currently we have approximately 1700sqft of bouldering wall and 10 top-rope lines up to 7m high as well as a small gym area. We have over 9000 climbers registered and, amongst other events, run 2 kids clubs and a junior talent squad.
There are 7.1/2 years remaining on the current lease, the building has relatively low overheads and there is ample parking in front and behind the building.
There is enormous scope to expand: Space to add more climbing surface, offering climbing tuition schemes such as NICAS or NIBAS, extending the opening hours, running more outdoor courses etc.
This would be an amazing opportunity for anyone who has dreamed of owning their own climbing centre. We would be happy to provide help and advice to make transition easy as we would love to see the centre continue.
The bottom line – money. Our family life is the most important thing for us, and as we do not rely solely on the climbing centre for our income, we would be prepared to listen to sensible offers. As a starting point we would be prepared to consider offers in the region of £80,000 (no VAT).
