    A good setup

    20-02-2017 by Nicholas Stokes

    This venue included 2 hosts that did a good job organising games and revving up the party. The technology and the games seemed to entertain the kids (aged 7-9) well for an hour and a half. The other elements were there, including party balloons, music, food (basic), and facilities. The location is clean and well presented, with excitement coming from the ability to have darkness and the big screen. There were a couple of minor negatives. On the website it says something about 'We know who'll win in the end', which is a bit off. When we run a home party we make the games fair, and even tend to avoid having the birthday girl winning (after all they are getting presents and attention already). But this place was the opposite. I assumed it would be subtle fudge at the end but according to my kids it was very obvious throughout that the birthday girl was getting extra points. This spoils the games for everyone, including the host. Also the venue was very keen to get us all out right on time, even though there was no-one after us. 15min for cake was really too tight. These 2 issues could probably be avoided by talking to the organisers beforehand about your preferences. I would recommend this venue if it is not too far from you.

    Answer from Impact Wall EQ on 01-03-2017:
    Thank you for your thoughtful review. We have implemented this change so the parents get to choose if they want their child to win or not. It has made the contests much more exciting. Ronan (Impact Wall).

    Highly recommend!

    Tennis Quest is the venue for the best children's birthday party! The host Ronan, is amazing with children. He involved all the kids in 4 activities including tennis, disco and an interactive asteroid game. He left all the kids wanting more. The children had the best time and a few commented it was the best party they had ever been to. It is also very reasonably priced.

    Try it - its fantastic!

    21-02-2016 by Pearl

    We are thrilled to have found Tennis Quest! It is an amazing place for kids to learn skills and have fun as well. Ronan has a unique talent for teaching kids how to play tennis– his system really works! My son started lessons at 3 ½, he is now 4 y/o and declared the other day “I love forehand!” Tennis lessons are a highlight of our week – it is a friendly, fun learning environment for all ages.

    Good to try

    04-02-2017 by Lina Hoang

    First we booked for a free trial lesson as this place charges very affordable prices but they provide quality lessons. I got 2 kids and the younger one 3.5 years old is too young to start piano lessons,and teacher recommend other places for group dancing/singing classes, so teacher only chose my 6 years old. Teachers are so kind and honest, they won't take your children for lessons until your children are ready to learn piano. And my son likes iit, he can't wait for the next lesson.

    Interesting class!
