With climbing added to the Tokyo Olympics, it is not surprising to see the indoor climbing market growing in popularity (40 to 50% surge in people wanting to climb indoors).

Clip ‘n Climb opened 18 new centres in 2021 and currently Clip ‘n Climb Challenges can be found in more than 340 centres in 50 countries. Their concept is suitable for different set-ups: starting a stand-alone facility; adding an adventure corner; running a family entertainment centre – with Clip ‘n Climb providing operational and marketing support.

A new addition to the Clip ‘n Climb selection is the Champion’s Series, designed to reproduce the Olympic spirit, just like in Tokyo. It is a new set of walls that comprises of fun new ways to promote a healthy competitive environment for climbers. The Champion’s Series consists of three types of walls, based on each Olympic discipline: Lead, Bouldering and Speed climbing. The Series has a small footprint but a delivers a big impact.

Clip ‘n Climb have also developed five new Prima Challenges. These compact Challenges allow indoor activity centres, climbing gyms and FECs to introduce new activities and maximise space. It represents a new opportunity to extend your portfolio and add more to your adventure park.

With our beginnings in New Zealand, and recent expansions we have experienced exponential growth in the last few years alone, expanding in the United Kingdom and relocating our central Clip ‘n Climb Hub from New Zealand to the United Kingdom.

In the United Kingdom, Clip ‘n Climb is now offered to franchisees who are seeking a complete turnkey business model. The franchise model has been designed for owner operator franchisees who will manage the business on a local basis to the format developed for the brand. Each franchisee will have staff to support them in the delivery of the service with clear operating standards, supported by a training and support programme, Clip ‘n Climb franchise operating manual, on-site business visits and Clip ‘n Climb marketing strategy and ongoing marketing support. Clip ‘n Climb recently added Pip the Possum, their new mascot, and South Ridge Café to the franchise possibilities.
