NUKIDS Masters – Highball
3rd May 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm BST
The NuKids Masters is an event where ‘NuKids’ competitors get to experience and take part in a World Cup Style Bouldering Competition with qualifiers and a grand final!
We created the ‘NuKids on the Bloc’ Comp series to cater for the majority of people who use our centre those climbing up to Font 6b. It’s a fun competition for all ages, perfect for people who are relatively new to climbing or those who don’t take it too seriously but still like a challenge!
It’s for fun, for the experience and it doesn’t matter where you finish. Come and get involved.No matter how little you climb or what you think of your ability, this is the comp for you. It’s a great social event.
The qualifiers will be a similar format to our regular NuKids Challenge Nights, with the Grand Final being staged on the DMM Comp Wall in front of friends, family and a supportive Highball Crowd, roughly kicking off at 21:00 until 22:15 (roughly).
There will be 2 qualifiers, the first from 16:00 to 18:00 for 12 years and under, this is too allow the younger climbers and their supervisors the space they need*. The second qualifier will take place on Friday 3rd May between 18:00 & 20:30, both timings will include the same 25 blocs up to 6b.
The top 10 male and female competitors (regardless of age category) will go through to the grand final on the same evening.
The 10 men and women who qualified will take on 4 problems each ‘on sight’, with each problem judged independently.
It’s going to be a very exciting couple of hours and every competitor will feel the support of an excited Highball crowd, who will cheer on the finalists as they crank, crimp and crush their way up the blocs!
Please note: any under 18’s that wish to participate will either need to be signed off (have a Green Card), have an over 18 supervise them or book onto one of our supervised sessions
