Just wanted to put this post together to show how easy the new system is to use! The new system will make multiple bookings MUCH easier than the older system, so please read.

1. and click the button for the booking system.

2. Select the class you would like to attend/book on the left and choose the amount of spaces you'd like to book on the bottom right. If you want to book subsequent weeks, select the next class on the left and repeat.

3. You'll see a little shopping cart next to the schedule if you've selected a class on those dates. You can click other classes on the left and click "select" to add more classes to your cart. When you've selected the classes/amount of spaces you'd like to book, click "PROCEED" at the bottom right of the page.

4. You'll be taken to a summary page to recheck your bookings, you can remove bookings on this page if you've added something by mistake. Click "book now" when you've checked the bookings on the left.

5. All details for each booking/multiple places on the same session can be entered on this single page. please ensure correct phone, contact email addresses are correct. Scroll down to continue and press "Continue" when this information is entered.

6. Payment - Final check before heading to the checkout system via Paypal.

7. You can pay via your paypal account of via a debit/credit card. Click the box below the paypal login box to pay by card. Follow the remaining instructions. Your booking is only confirmed after payment.
You'll then receive an email confirming these bookings and only need to make the single payment for multiple bookings.

Hope this helps!

3rd Aug 2015: Class Update & Parkour at Parliament.

Hi all! Brad here, hard to believe that it's coming up to a year since the adult outdoor classes started and it's been great to see so many people learning about and catching a real passion for Parkour and movement. I'm sure everyone who's been coming to classes has seen an improvement in movement ability alongside new friends and improved fitness. Keep it up and share what we're doing!

Class Changes:Being the first year SP is running classes over summer, there will be some last minute changes/cancellations if class bookings are quiet while students and families are way/on holiday. This is to ensure that good numbers are in attendance for students to enjoy classes together and to at least cover hall hire costs. To help avoid these late changes, please do book classes sooner than later.

The only date to mention in advance so far, is that there will be no classes on Friday 14th due to a hall booking error at St Bernard's. Any bookings already taken for this day will be refunded.
Parkour UK AGM
The Parkour UK AGM 2015 went well with a good representation of coaches from across the UK including the Parkour UK President Sebastien Foucan. There's plenty of exciting news including the continuation of Parkour being officially recognised by the UK's national sport bodies, further membership and insurance options not only for Parkour professionals but students.There's plenty of other exciting "behind-the-scenes" work/news which will be shared by out NGB in due course.

Parkour at Parliament!
Our Ninja Warrior UK and Parkour friends, Katie Mcdonnell and Shirley Darlington-Rowat met with Tracey Crouch from the Department for culture, media and sport to show and share what it's like to #givePARKOURaGO. This was a great high-level  opportunity to show the prevalence of Parkour in today's community, alongside the importance and growing amount of women in Parkour. Facebook post here:
Please continue to share the website and details about Southend Parkour with your friends and family so we can further expand the local Parkour community, developing fitness and exploring movement together.
