Skaterham was originally built to offer somewhere safe and challenging for young people to go and practice extreme sports. During the development of the former Caterham Barracks, the developer, Linden Homes offered the community the opportunity to build something for future generations and so twenty years ago a youth conference was held to find out what young people in the area needed, and Skaterham was born!
In the past two decades more than 30,000 young people have become members, and active membership currently stands at 4000, with many of our original young members returning as parents with their own children.
Through donations and fundraising, and entry fees we have continued to grow Skaterham, and have a shop, a cafe, viewing platforms, new toilets, professional sound and lighting, and a tuck shop.
We have recently introduced fitness classes, run by our manager Darren, a qualified fitness instructor
We continue to improve and build on our success thanks to our members and our amazing volunteers. Skaterham relies on goodwill and funding to survive – we are a charity and keep our entry fee low so that is affordable for all.
We offer a friendly, safe and supportive environment for riders of all ages and abilities in the evenings, at week-ends and in the holidays.
If you haven’t yet visited Skaterham please come along and have a look around. You’ll be amazed!
