What some of our hirers say about us:
"I have been teaching Pilates, Piloxing & Cardio Dance Fit at Hummersknott Active now for a number of years and am delighted to be able to help so many people get fit & more active in such a friendly, spacious, clean and efficiently run venue. The community are very lucky to have such an amazing sporting facility that is buzzing with activities. My classes attract men and women from 16 - 75 yrs of age, often with 2 or even 3 generations in one class. Attention to detail is reflected by the helpful Hummerknott Active Staff, meeting you in reception, showing you where you need to go, a large safe car park & an overall great atmosphere. Many of my attendees come to my classes whilst their children are doing an activity such as Karate or School of Rock & Pop or while their partners are having a swim or playing football. Hummersknott Active is an asset to Darlington, helping to get our kids more active whilst providing a multitude of exercise for Adults." Mel Hutchison's Exercise Classes

"I currently hire a hall at Hummersknott School for my tums, bums and aerobics classes on a Monday to Thurs evening , 7 to 8pm. The venue is fantastic, hence my decision to run 4 classes a week here. The Active staff are extremely helpful and take good care of me as a hirer. The car park is big and safe and well lit, always a bonus for ladies coming to keep fit.
All in all a brilliant, and well run venue, available all year round too, which is a bonus." Julie Baker, Fitness Instructor.
"Since relocating to Hummersknott Active in 2012, Kyokutan Karate (www.kyokutankarate.org.uk) has gone from strength to strength by being able to provide regular karate coaching sessions for juniors and seniors, competition squad training sessions, hosting our own regional competition and having two of our members become National Champions. We have only been able to do this due to the excellent facilities provided by Hummerknott Active and the support of the Stephen, James and the rest of the Hummerknott Active staff who have always gone out of their way to make sure our needs are catered for."
Russian language and culture school "TeremOK" has been using brilliant facilities at Hummersknott Academy since September 2012.
"We are very pleased with friendly, safe and welcoming learning environment and assistance from the staff. We offer a range of activities for the students from the age of 3+ till 100, that include Russian language tuition, arts and crafts and dancing lessons.
As well as this, we would like to thank Hummersknott Academy for letting us use the main hall and all equipment for special occasions."
Many thanks from Russian school "TeremOK
