Welcome to my Franchise

Welcome to our Franchise

Welcome to our Playball Belfast family where children are motivated to want to play be active and learn essential fundamental skills for all ball sports. We are a multi-sport group that encourages all-round development through structured sports play sessions. Helping children find their feet onto the sport field is just one small part of what we do at Playball. Our primary concern is developing the whole child so that they feel confident to try new things become more independent leaving mum (Icando) or the caregiver and enjoying social time with new friends in a teacher-led environment. Our coaches are motivated, and are experts in their field working with young children and delivering excellent high quality Playball classes. We offer weekly term time classes and our very popular Playball BELFAST summer Easter and mid-term camps at Methody/Ardnavalley each year. We offer classes on Monday Friday and Saturday at QUEENS SPORT, Belfast, and WEDNESDAY at Queens Leisureplex, HOLYWOOD. We run after-school classes and classes during the day at schools and nurserys schools accross BELFAST and HOLYWOOD too.
Classes generally take place inside, and we try to move outside where possible during the summer months.
