A host of activities at Silksworth Sports Complex and Ski Slope
Silksworth was a small mining community in Sunderland, although most of the links back to a vibrant mining community have all but disappeared. It now proudly boasts the Silksworth Sports Complex, which is a must go to venue for visitors to North East England. With 3 dry ski-slopes, for all you skiing enthusiasts to practice, 2 lakes which are brilliant for anyone who wants to while away the hours fishing, a lovely picnic area, and for the kids an adventure playground, as well as a skating park. For the more sportier there is an athletics track, tennis courts, soccer and hockey pitches. Indoors there are 8 tennish courts, an aerobics studio, a gym as well as a cafe and lounge bar to relax after the rigours of the day. This is all topped off with a great community swimming pool.
One of the unique features of Silksworth Sports Complex is their dry ski slope. Private Ski and Snowboard lessons can be purchased for all levels of experience. Individual or group lessons can be booked, from 4 years and up, up to a maximum of 5 people.
Silkswoth Sports Complex also hosts the sport of Snow tubing. Snow tubing is lots of fun for kids and is great for adults too. With inflatable “doughnuts” which you step into and then slide down the slope its an experience you don’t want to miss. You can hire the Snow tubes for 30 minutes, or even better book a party which is a really unique experience for both the young and young at heart.
All in all, a great sporting venue with lots to do for the whole family.
