Outdoor Fitness in London & Surrey: Ideas to Book Now

7 fabulous fun ways to get fit in the fresh air

Feel the sand in between your toes as you make a serve, enjoy an evening dip in heated waters, or take to the water on a kayak tour. Exercise needn’t be exhausting when it comes to outdoor fitness in London…

Return to the courts

Perfect your serve in Wimbledon Park, just a stone’s throw from the world-famous green courts, ahead of this year’s Wimbledon Championships. Members are able to book courts (free memberships are available to do this) with sessions for all ages and abilities resuming over the coming weeks.

On your board

Work on your core, perfect your coordination, and take in the scenery of south west London and Surrey’s as you navigate your paddleboard down the winding Thames with SUP4. Board hire is available for novices, while beginners are encouraged to book into sessions; group and 1:1 sessions available.

Take to the Trees

Who said exercise needn’t be exciting? Swing through the trees, clamber over nets and overcome your acrophobia with a visit to Go Ape. Get your heart racing and savour a multi-generational day out in the improving weather with locations in Battersea Park, Cockfosters, Alexandra Palace and Chessington.

Go Golfing

Several green expanses across south west London and Surrey have been turned into trimmed-to-perfection golf courses. Whether you’re a budding golf pro or just looking for an introduction to the sport, you’ll find something suitable in our guide to the best local golf courses.

Time for a dip

Travel may be off the cards for a little while longer, but that needn’t mean you deprive yourself of an al fresco dip. Hampton Pool is set to reopen on March 29, with sessions in the heated pool available to book from 8am a day in advance. Remember to turn up ready for your dip, as the changing facilities will remain closed for the immediate future.

Take to the water

Explore the Thames with a socially distanced kayaking session. In groups of six, you’ll be free to splash your way from Richmond Bridge to Teddington Lock on a self-guided tour, or let an expert take the lead with a number of tours on offer. Book here.

Get competitive

Make a day of it and put a competitive spin on that post-lockdown reunion by booking a slot at Wimbledon Park’s volleyball court. Open 9am-6pm, 7 days a week, priced at £18 per 1 hour slot.
