John Nike Leisuresport – Busy, Busy, Busy!

One week here feels like an eternity and in a good way!

We had an awesome Army hockey tournament from Wednesday right up until today; there was only one down fall…the stench that came with the players. My oh my, for all you hard-core hockey fans and players I’m sure you know what we mean!

Then we had Ice Karting on Thursday, one of the best sessions yet; the guys were insane. Finally we’ve been prepping all day for our first ever UV Foam Party on Ice which is tonight, who’s ready to partaaay. Keep an eye on Facebook next week for all our videos and photo’s.

Outside on the slopes we’ve been busily prepping our chairlift hopefully to be back in action by the end of November. Don’t let this put you off though we have two drag lifts (one for each slope) which work just as well.

Also Pantomime rehearsals and prepping has begun. Check out a sneak peak of our crystal ball chandeliers…FullSizeRender

Last but not least we had a final goodbye to one of our full time members of staff who has been with us for over a decade! Amy Lack who plays and refs hockey is an absolute asset to the our work force. She has worked in every department grinding hard as a steward, ski instructor, snowboard instructor, bar tender, cafeteria assistant, receptionist, duty manager, fitness instructor and gym manager! Yes one lady has accomplished this all under our roof. We bid you farewell and all the best of luck at your new job. Here’s to Amy!IMG_1768[1]

We’re already into the first week of October, Halloween is almost here and we are gearing up for a month of mayhem and madness down at John Nike Leisuresport Complex. If you’d like to keep up to date with what is coming up, or take advantage of some of our awesome giveaways, or just want to see what goes on behind the scenes, keep your eyes firmly glued on our weekly blog updates.

This Girl Can

To kick things off, this Saturday is one for the ladies This_Girl_Can_Logo_PMS_248when we host our very own This Gir
l Can! We are doing our bit to celebrate active women up and down the country by hosting a day of fun filled activities…so come and join us as we celebrate getting women active! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never tried any of th
e activities before; they are all designed to be suitable for beginners…and more importantly, to be fu
n, social and friendly! This Girl Can promises to be a brilliant day, as we open up the ski slope, gym and ice rink for all you ladies to come and try all the fantastic sport facilities we have to offer. Regardless of your age, shape, or ability, we guarantee you’ll go away feeling like you’ve learnt an amazing new skill! So if you have ever wanted to whizz down the slopes on skis, try your hand at snowboarding, strap on some skates and give the ice a whirl, or if you simply want to hit the gym and hear some nutritional talks to get that look you’ve always been after, head on down. The day starts at 10:00am and included in the entrance fee of £15 are loads of special offers, deals and a goody bag!

Bracknell Bees

Riding high on the back of a win against our neighbours, Basingstoke Bison, we welcome Manchester Phoenix to the Hive for our first Saturday game of the season. Both teams won their last games against their local rivals and will be looking to keep their winning streak alive, so it is sure to be a tough time on the ice. On Sunday the Bees head off to Telford to face the Tigers, who are currently sitting top of the leader board. The Tigers have lost their last three games so no doubt will be hitting the ice hard to get back on track. Both games face off at 6pm and for the Manchester home game on Saturday, kids get in for £1!



If you have been Kartingdown at the rink this past week, you will have seen us getting the carts ready for some on ice karting. Cam and Matt have been getting themselves all covered in grease, making sure that the karts are in top shape for you to take them for a spin…hopefully not literally. d every Thursday from 7pm – 9pm, so if you fancy yourself a bit of a boy, or girl racer, give us a call to book yourself in for an evening of spills and     thrills.Ice karting is held every Thursday from 7pm – 9pm, so if you fancy yourself a bit of a boy, or girl racer, give us a call to book yourself in for an evening of spills and thrills.
