Clip ’n Climb Ipswich has announced a new partnership with Suffolk coffee supremo, Paddy & Scotts, which will see the opening of the largest Paddy & Scotts fuelling station in Suffolk.
Clip ’n Climb Ipswich is due to open in May, and at 13,500 square ft2 this flagship location will be the first purpose-built site in the country. The Ipswich Clip ’n Climb will see many firsts for the company, it will be the biggest centre of its type anywhere in the world, boasting 42 challenges and it will also have the highest wall and drop-slide in Europe, the all weather facility will allow visitors to indulge their passion for climbing all year round.
Clip ’n Climb Director, Mark Patterson said: “We are absolutely delighted to enter into this partnership with Paddy & Scotts – it really is the icing on the cake for an already very exciting project. There is a tremendous amount of synergy between these two brands and the relationship will help cement our bespoke centre as the flagship Clip ’n Climb in the UK and one of the very best in the world.”
The 106-cover Paddy & Scott’s fuelling station will be housed in a spacious, newly-renovated mezzanine overlooking the climbing area and will exclusively serve Paddy & Scotts artisan coffee, a range of smoothies, Tea Pigs tea and its latest product, Nitro Cold Brew, along with a delicious array of food including handmade pizzas. It will be the perfect place for climbers to refresh and refuel after their energetic session, whilst parents dropping off children can sit and relax over a freshly-brewed coffee whilst enjoying a clear view of the arena.
Paddy & Scott’s grows, roasts and distributes coffee, machinery and ancillary products throughout the UK and beyond. Martin Westhorp, an equity partner at Paddy & Scott’s, is working alongside the team at Clip ‘n Climb in Ipswich to deliver a comfortable and stylish cafe serving great coffee. “We are very excited to open the doors to one of our largest fuelling stations yet and it’s great to be involved in a project that focuses on health, energy and having fun,” explains Martin. “Clip ‘n Climb is doing great things for the leisure industry, so it’s a fantastic fit for our brand, which is all about fuelling ambition.”
Interest in indoor climbing has grown enormously as many people, especially those with families, seek out exciting activities that are both physically and mentally challenging. Climbing will be making its Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020, and is set to explode on the world stage. It is certain to see its popularity rise throughout the globe.
