Our Story So Far...

Garden Climbing Frames is owned and operated by Real Sports Ltd, which is managed by myself Paul Smith, a sports and play enthusiast and experienced online retailer since 2003.

A number of years ago I was lucky enough to meet my lovely partner Marianne in the beautiful county of Oxfordshire, where we now live happily together. Marianne and I soon realised that we shared a passion for play and looked for a way to explore this further.

Stories of her childhood adventures, playing on homemade go carts, climbing frames and tree houses inspired us to create Garden Climbing Frames to help bring the same excitement and happiness to children everywhere, whilst helping to encourage active outdoor play and exercise.

We wanted to find a way of making climbing frames accessible and affordable to all. The modular nature of Action climbing frames allows parents to choose their own design, whilst controlling the budget at all times and having a positive impact on the environment. New and exciting play modules can be added as children grow up and develop new abilities and skills or as a special treat for birthdays and Christmas.

Our Proudest Moment

We are lucky enough to live right next to RAF Brize Norton and get to watch all of the planes on manoeuvres each day. This summer we helped to sponsor the officers annual summer ball by providing a selection of play equipment for the event. In gratitude for their service, we offer a permanent 10% discount for all RAF members.

Our Plans For The Future

We shall soon be offering a local installation service to cover a fifty mile radius of Oxfordshire, with future plans to install nationwide. We presently work closely with a professional installation company, who specialise in the assembly and construction of outdoor play equipment. If you would like us to provide you with an installation quote for any of our climbing frames or even for your own design, please contact us at play@gardenclimbingframes.co.uk or call us on 01993 844145 with your requirements for a no obligation quote.

The Evolution of Garden Climbing Frames

Gardening Climbing Frames History Pic

Climbing Frames have evolved over the years, making leaps and bounds, both in terms of their design and the choice of materials to create them. We choose to specialise in Action climbing frames, which are beautifully constructed from sustainably sourced top grade *PEFC pine.

This choice of timber helps to protect the environment for future generations to enjoy. Wooden climbing frames are as sturdy as their metal counterparts, but arguably look far more beautiful in a natural garden environment.

Unlike the "come as they are" designs of the past, our flexible modular climbing frames can be positioned in a number of ways to suit the shape and size of your garden. In addition you only pay for the features you really want, such as a swing arm, slide or fireman’s pole, saving you money and space in the garden.

PEFC Timber - The Responsible Choice

*PEFC - The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to ensuring that timber products are produced with respect for the highest ecological social and ethical standards. Consumers who choose PEFC certified products actively help to maintain our forests and natural resources for generations to come.

The Design Process

We work closely with all of our customers to develop the perfect climbing frame that is right for their play requirements and size of garden, whilst keeping one eye on the all important budget. Our free design process starts with an initial consultation (or friendly chat as we like to call it) to first establish the basis of the design. How old are your children? How much space in the garden is available? What play activity does your child enjoy the most? We use this information to help decide which base tower (or twin towers for larger designs), are best suited with a choice to add a swing arm or alternative play module such as monkey bars or slide.

Once a foundation for the design is decided, we develop a 3D design to incorporate your choice of play modules and accessories. The design is based on the exact measurements and layout of your garden to allow you to view your climbing frame design from all angles before you commit to placing your order.

The design stage of the process can take anywhere from thirty minutes to several hours, where changes to play features and their positions are made. We want you to be entirely happy with your design and will make every effort to ensure every detail is perfect for you, no matter how long it may take.

Our Climbing Frame Gallery

Our favourite part of the design process is the moment a 3D model in your garden, ready and waiting for your excited children to play the day away. As every design and garden is unique, we simply love to receive photographs to share in our climbing frame gallery for all to see.

If you have recently taken delivery of your garden climbing frame please us a photo or two at play@gardenclimbingframes.co.uk and let us know which part is your favourite.

Happy playing

Paul and Marianne
