If you’re a fan of a little bit of friendly competition but no so keen on playing sport in large teams, why not grab a mate and take part in some 1vs1 activities during your London trip?
There are so many to choose from- tennis, ping pong, badminton, just to name a few! London is also packed full of venues where you can enjoy them, with many within easy reach of the Grand Park Kensington hotel.
Enjoy a spot of snooker at Efe’s Snooker Bar
Head to this spacious, fun venue and spend the afternoon hitting some balls around with a mate. If you fancy a tipple while you play, this is a good place to go. They have an extensive menu and are often updating their bar offerings. Just try not to drink too much, it may affect your snooker skills!
Play tennis in Victoria Park
If you enjoy getting outside while you take part in sport then head down to Victoria Park and play a few games of tennis. The Victoria Park courts are probably the most well-established in London and have been operating for 15 years. You can also receive coaching here if you are looking to brush up on your skills. For adults, court hire is £6 per hour. Of course this sport is weather permitting, so pray for some sunshine so you can get out there and enjoy yourself!
Get stuck into some ping-pong at Bounce Farringdon
This is a really cool little venue that serves up pizzas and 1950’s style cocktails for you to enjoy while you are playing some ping-pong with a mate. After a few games, get comfy in one of their diner-style booths and enjoy a much needed meal. After this jam-packed evening, our 4 star hotels in Kensington offer the perfect respite to cool down and prepare for tomorrow. With great transport links, you could easily set out to challenge the victor to another game of 1v1 competition elsewhere.
Play air hockey and video games at the Las Vegas arcade
Located in Soho, this is the arcade to end all the other arcades up and down the country. It is the only dedicated video game arcade that is located in Central London so as you can imagine it gets pretty busy in here. They have a wide range of machines including driving, shooting and also PlayStation 4s so you’ll never have to play the same game twice. They also host weekly and monthly tournaments if you fancy being extra competitive.
Tired from all of that competing? Check-in to a 4-star hotel in Kensington London to rest up. You’ll love the Las Vegas arcade so much you’ll probably want to head back there in the morning after you check-out!
Enjoy some bowling at All Star Lanes
Another fun-filled, themed venue, All Star Lanes is a boutique bowling alley that boasts burgers, cocktails and even karaoke, so why not enjoy all of this as well as taking on your friend at a game of bowling?
