  • Accredited for quality and safety

One of our many roles as a National Centre is to collaborate with partners, organisations and individuals to empower women and girls to participate in adventurous activities.

We allow you full flexibility with a range of introductory, intermediate and advanced courses.

Please note: we endeavour to assign a female instructor to our Courses for Women, however, due to availability we cannot always guarantee this. If you have any questions please speak to our Bookings Team by emailing info@pyb.co.uk.
