Covid-19 Policy

We are pleased to announce that Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich will be reopening AGAIN on Friday 4th December at 4pm – bookings can be made via our website from Saturday 28th November!
Since Lockdown 1.0, our team have worked extremely hard to create a safe and comfortable covid secure environment for all our climbers and visitors. We loved welcoming you all back after such a challenging start to the year, and we are extremely thankful to everyone who has supported us this entire year. We have received excellent feedback throughout for all the measures we have put in place as a business, and we have used Lockdown 2.0 to strengthen these further.
Please make sure that everyone within your booking follows the recent government guidelines and arrives at Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich not displaying any COVID-19 symptoms prior to and on the day of your visit – contact us straight away if anybody is displaying COVID-19 symptoms so we can rearrange your session and help keep everyone safe. All standard terms & conditions apply.
Here is a breakdown of the current main changes we have implemented for a safe return for Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich in accordance with government guidelines:
  • Face Coverings – all staff will wear the necessary face covering for their specific roles in accordance with government guidelines and have all received the required training prior to re-opening. Customers should wear their own face coverings when visiting Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich in accordance with government guidelines, but you don’t have to wear face coverings whilst climbing or when seated in the cafe.
  • All climbing sessions must be booked online before entering the centre moving forward. Our booking page is very mobile friendly and you can even book onto a session up until 10 minutes before the start time, subject to availability! As of 14th September, you cannot book online for a group size larger than 6 people unless you fall within the exceptions to the new government laws in place. Please email if you fall under these exceptions. Please follow the latest tier system guidelines when making your booking
  • Increased daily deep cleaning of entire centre, increased hand sanitiser stations, one-way systems, and improved signage during your visit and reminders for everyone to stay safe & clean.
  • If you have made a booking and someone within your booking group develops COVID-19 symptoms, please email us straight away and we will reschedule your session for after 14 days from your original booking date.
  • Opening times have been shortened until further notice to allow sufficient time for staff to complete regular daily deep cleaning of the entire centre.
  • Climbing session numbers have been reduced to help maintain social distancing and we will be using our party rooms upstairs as an additional safety briefing area – 3 brand new walls have also been installed to further help this.
  • Non-climbing adults can enter the arena to help as ‘clippers’ in orange bibs during ALL sessions, provided they have attended the safety briefing, but ONLY for children 7 years and under. We strictly allow a maximum of 1 adult to enter in the arena per 2 children. Our friendly team of staff will be available to help climbers during all sessions to make sure everyone is safe and having fun – please help us to limit unnecessary numbers in our arena where possible! All other visitors can watch from our cafe upstairs where you can relax and enjoy our great food & drink menu, which has a large seating and viewing area.
  • All climbers will need to wait in our new waiting zone once checked in at reception – please arrive 10 minutes before your session start time, but no earlier.
  • Our additional challenges (Vertical Drop Slide & Leap of Faith) are currently closed, but will remain under review whilst we continue to monitor government guidelines.
  • Our water fountain in the arena is available for water bottle use only – please bring your own water bottle.
  • Our cafe has been split into a watching area for non-climbing visitors and a seating area – we are running table service only and we are strongly encouraging cashless payments. Please note that as of 14th September, it will be a maximum of 6 people to table at all times.
  • Our arcade zone has been removed.
  • All gift vouchers must be purchased online through our website.
As always, we will be working relentlessly to make sure everyone who walks through our doors has a fantastic time. All measures we have put in place are to make sure everyone can continue to enjoy visiting us safely – so let’s KEEP CLEAN…AND CARRY ON!
If you have any further questions or concerns, please email us on
Thank you for your ongoing  support, and we will look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit!
Kind regards,
Mark & Josh
