  5. Sharon Middleton

    A big thank you to Callum for a very well organised and fun 5th birthday party for my daughter, Emma.

    Inside the first 10 minutes as the children arrived, he had them engaged and knew just about everyone’s names (30 kids in total!).

    So many parents, and children, commented on how good a party it was and how impressed they were by the whole set up. Infact, weeks later parents are still commenting on how much they, and the children, enjoyed it.

    Can’t recommend the services of Callum and A-Star Sports enough.

    Well organised, good fun and value for money.

    Would thoroughly recommend.

  6. Julie, Chester

    I just wanted to pass on a massive thank you to Alastair for planning and delivering a truly awesome party.
    Evie and Rory absolutely loved it and they really enjoyed having Alastair as their games master for a second time!! The Star Wars themed games worked brilliantly and he created a fantastic atmosphere with the perfect balance of fun and structure. I’ve had so many comments from parents to say how much their child enjoyed it.
    He is an absolute professional and one of the nicest people I have encountered.

  7. Caroline Willis

    A huge thank you for another fantastic A Star Sports party. Once again you made a party of 22 6 and 7 year olds stress-free and fantastic fun for the children. There was lots of laughter from everyone with each and every child included in all of the games. Having used A Star Sports for a number of years now I cannot rate them highly enough – true professionals.

  8. F Walker, Chester

  12. Carol Gibson

    Wow, amazing, great fun, fantastic party, kids loved it. That’s just some of the comments I have received from parents of kids who attended my daughter Skye’s 5th birthday party on Sunday. Thank you so much to Steve, my daughter had an amazing time she was hyper for the entire day I have never seen her smile so much or be so confident. Steve has a fantastic nature and is great with the kids, he kept them all entertained and was good at getting everyone involved even the shy ones. I can not recommend a party highly enough, it was the talk of the playground on Monday morning never heard that before after a party. Thanks again Steve

    Thank you so much for a fantastic party today for my 7 year old twins, Sasha & Henry. Alasdair organised the party games, he was great fun & extremely helpful. The kids really enjoyed themselves & the help at mealtime was much appreciated! Thanks again. Anna

  15. D.Gibson

    I would like to thank Callum for doing a fantastic job at my daughters 5th birthday party in East Kilbride today. The kids all had a fantastic time and the parents were all very impressed. Highly recommend for a stress free fun filled day.

  16. dawn abbott

    Stephen was excellent doing my daughter Jessica’s 4th Birthday party. He didn’t know her before party but her made her feel very special and everyone had a great day. I would highly recommend stephen to anyone looking for kids party entertainment.

  17. Steph

    I would like to say a huge thank you to Kyle for making my son’s birthday party extra special, I cannot praise Kyle enough, from the minute he arrived (30 mins early) he entertained my little birthday boy so we could set up and within 10 minutes of the children arriving Kyle had memorised all the 31 children’s names. Kyle then entertained all the children, kept control but made the games so much fun. Kyle helped organise the children for the birthday cake presentation and party bags hand-out which was a great help, Kyle also sat with the children when they tucked into their party food. Lots of parents commented on what a fabulous party it was and a few have asked for Kyle’s details. I would highly recommend A-Star Sports but especially Kyle.
    Thanks again Kyle!

  18. L Weldon

    Having been to several parties hosted by Steven all my son Luke wanted for his birthday was a party with Steven smelly socks. He had a ball. Have never seen him have such fun. All of the kids did. Would highly recommend and will book again.

  19. Nicola Joy

    This is the fifth time we have used Stephen for a birthday party. We have three boys aged 9, 7 and 5. Every party has been fantastic. The boys have had a ball and so have their friends. From dodgeball to pick pocketing tennis balls from a bucket, Stephen has it covered. Money well spent. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough. We will definitely be having him for the next birthday party. Thanks Stephen, see you again soon. Nickie, Ian, Michael, David and Daniel.

  20. Stephanie

    Hamish’s party with Kyle was fantastic. The kids were captivated from the minute he arrived, and all the parents were amazed at how he instantly memorised all the children’s names. He had all the kids behaving perfectly, and they were really pleased when he sat and chatted to them during the party tea. Best party yet! And one Mum has already asked for the details so she can book the same thing later in the year!

  21. Johanna Vaghena

    We’ve just had our son’s sixth birthday party and I would just like to say how incredible Alastair was. There were 35 very excited children and I must say I thought it would be bedlam. How wrong I was, it was absolutely fab! The kids had a ball and the parents were all amazed at the control Alastair had. My son said it was the “the best day ever” and that made it perfect! Alastair arrived early and helped us set up the hall and kept our son amused whilst we got things ready. Really professional service, would wholeheartedly recommend to everyone. Thanks Alastair and A-Star Sports.

  22. Jo Galloway

    I would just like to say a huge thank you to Dale for a fantastic party! My 6 year old son Cameron & his friends have just had ‘the best party ever’…..from start to finish we had every confidence that the party was in safe hands. Dale was so professional & managed to involve all the party guests while at the same time make the birthday boy feel extra special. I must admit that a couple of the guests were rather over excited but Dale had no problem in keeping order & I was impressed that he kept such a large group of 6 year old boys entertained!
    Thank you so much Dale, I would not hesitate to recommend you in future.

  23. Jenny Jones, Chester

    I cannot tell you how wonderful Mark was today, all the kids loved the party and Freddie had the best day ever! Mark was so helpful with everything even after having entertained 30 kids for 90 minutes, he was a true superstar!

    Please pass on our massive thanks and I hope we see him again soon.

  24. A Luxton, Chester

    Benjamin has really enjoyed A-Star Sports. He looks forward to trying out new sports each week. Gary and the coaches are great at keeping the children engaged and motivated.

  25. J Scott, Chester

    Another great year for Joseph at A-Star Sports. His confidence has grown and grown. He loves his classes, thank you so much for providing him with the experience and skills.

  26. C Thomas, Chester

    Jamie really enjoys his A-Star Sports class. Kyle is fantastic with all the children, very positive and encourages them at all times. I would highly recommend A-Star Sports and would like to say a massive thank you to Kyle for all his hardwork and effort over the last 12 months

  27. L Gibson, Chester

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the two Garys and the whole team for the outstanding class you provide. I cannot begin to tell you how much it has increased Anna’s confidence and she has adored it despite not being naturally sporty. It is, by far, the best after-school club that we have attended (and we used to attend a lot! None of the others lasted 5 years!!) . Anna still wants to come to holiday club!

  28. G Harris, Chester

    Louis’ party on Sunday was a great success and Tom our coach was excellent. He built up a great rapport with the children from the outset and was helpful throughout the whole 2 hours and stayed beyond 5pm. I can’t praise him enough. We would love to use your company again as I’m sure would the parents of all the party goers.

  29. E Gearing, Chester

    Jacob has had a great time at A-Star Sports and it has really helped to develop his co-ordination and confidence. He loves going each week and the team are always so encouraging and inclusive. Thank you so much for all that you do.

  30. C Glazzard

    Gary is fantastic! He builds an excellent rapport with the kids, communicates at their level and is enthusiastic. They respond really well and are engaged throughout – an hour flies by! The most important element is that he knows each child by name and actively engages all of them even those quieter ones.

  31. C Grindrod. Chester

    Harvey loves A-Star Sports and eats his lunch as fast as he can so he can get to class! Wouldn’t change anything, it’s a perfect introduction to sport.

  32. Leah

    My son James has been going to classes with Alastair for a few months now and he absolutely loves them. So much so that he asked for an A Star party for his 4th birthday. I’m so glad we listened to him as everyone had a fantastic time! A huge thank you to Alastair for entertaining such a mixed bag of ages and abilities (from 2 – 6!), you’re a legend in our house :) Would definitely recommend.

  33. Alison Adams

    Thanks to Alastair for Charlie’s party today. The children had a wonderful time and Alastair was great at entertaining and keeping them all on track playing the games (not easy with 4 & 5 year olds). The games were great and the pace was just right. Charlie had a great time and really enjoyed his party. Exceeded all my expectations. Thank you.

  34. Woodlands PTA - Woodlands Primary School, Whitby

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to Gary and the A-Star Sports team for attending our School Summer Fair.
    You provided the children with an insight into the fun activities at A-Star Sports, enhancing hand-eye coordination, fitness and discipline, keeping them entertained and engaged at all times. We hope you return next year as we would love to have you back, you were one of the star attractions.

  35. Fiona

    RE Winning a day at holiday club (Chester)

    Can I just say thank you very much for making Lilly’s day so enjoyable she absolutely loved it, in fact so much that she begged to come again on the Tuesday (which she did). In Lilly’s words your clubs are awesome and your staff are great fun.

    You have converted Lilly as she’s not a fan of school holiday clubs but mention yours and she lights up :-)

    Keeping children active and interested in sport is so vital and because of your club Lilly now says she has a keen interest to play hockey. Many thanks again.

  36. Nicola Rice

    We had a party led by Kyle in Northwich (Cheshire) and he was excellent. He knew all of the children’s names within the first ten minutes of the party and had such a lovely manner with every child, especially my friend’s autistic daughter who usually finds these occasions tricky. However, Kyle made her so welcome and involved that she had a wonderful time. Kyle held the children’s attention brilliantly throughout – he was a superstar and I highly recommend him and A-Star Sports. From a very impressed Mummy – Davenham, Northwich, Cheshire.

  37. Bunnies Day Nursery Chester

    A big thank you to the two Gary’s, Mark and the rest of team for another fantastic term. The children love the sports sessions and they get so much out of it. It is always a fun filled lesson, we look forward to having you back next term.

  38. Rachel

    HUGE thanks to Alastair for Seb and Jacob’s party in Chester today!! The whole reception class had an amazing time and Alastair was a master at keeping their attention from the moment they walked in to the moment they left!
    Party was jam packed with lots of high energy games, the children were all thrilled, as were we as parents – totally stress free party! Highly recommended, Alastair is a great party host.

  39. N Roberts, Chester

    Daniel loves coming to his session each Friday. I can’t thank you enough Gary (and helpers) for your positivity and encouraging manner, helping him to feel comfortable. This is the first mainstream activity Daniel has attended and I can tell he feels no different from the other children. Thank you for your support on Daniel’s behalf.

  40. L Hall, Chester

    Zayne loves coming to A-Star Sports so much that he wants a party! Kyle is a brilliant teacher and engages with the children straight away. It has taught Zayne how to work as part of a team and take turns.

  41. L Murray

    Aaron continues to love his sessions at A-Star Sports and Gary continues to amaze us parents with his patience and calm control of bunches of exuberant children. Thank you as always.

  42. P Bodell, Chester

    Craig has enjoyed the introduction to sports and has gained confidence. He loved his A-Star Sports party. Thank you very much Gary for keeping 30 children entertained for 1 and a half hours.

  43. T. Price

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Gary (Chester) for attending Connor’s party yesterday. The party was a huge success, and Gary really made Connor feel special. So many of the parents commented afterwards about how they loved being able to just relax and chat and let someone else take charge of their kids.

  44. Edel

    Amazing party again. Had Grace’s 4th party with Gary, she loved it so much she had her 5th party with him again today! A year later and it was just as fab as last year’s one!!!!
    Everyone had a great time, thanks again to Gary and Sharon for a fab, well organised party x

  45. A Ashibi, Chester

    A-Star Sports classes have been a fantastic introduction to group activities, following instructions and basic sports skills for Jonah. He loves the class and wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t sign him up again!

  46. J Frodsham, Chester

    Thank you for all the fun Katie has had over the last 7 or so years. A-Star Sports has given her a real grounding in many sports which have helped her enormously when starting high school.

  47. N Baines, Chester

    I have been sending my children and the children I childmind to Gary for over 10 years now. My 3 year old now attends and it only gets better and better. Thank you Gary

  48. R Skippon, Chester

    My daughter Isabelle loves A-Star Sports. It has really developed her confidence and she has made lots of friends.

  49. P Hunt, Chester

    A-Star is Kyle’s favourite club. Mark has been amazing with them and Kyle cannot wait to go every Friday. Great choice of games and Kyle’s confidence just keeps growing.

  50. K Sharp, Chester

    Nathan absolutely loves A-Star Sports. When his best friend was leaving the session to play cricket for the summer Nathan was adamant he didn’t want to go and would continue with A-Star Sports! I can see the improvement each time and we are having an A-Star Sports party for his birthday again.

  51. K Ellis

    We’ve been very impressed with the classes that Seb has been to since February. Mark has a lovely calm way with the children and is able to put out equipment, teach them and encourage them completely on his own. Seb has enjoyed many activities each session and has really progressed.

  52. Mrs Nicholson, Chester

    Nicole looks forward to Mondays, she has enjoyed all aspects of A-Star Sports. Being part of a team, listening, doing as she is told and excellent exercise is all part of A-Star. I would and do recommend it to my friends, it’s one of Nicole’s highlights of the week. Thank you Mark for making it such a good experience.

  53. C Arnold, Chester

    Another fun year, thank you Mark. We’ve had a great time every week. It’s a pleasure coming to these classes and the kids are keen to come every time. Mark knows all the children so well and he’s got a fantastic manner with them. So impressed! We keep on coming, I think this is our 4th year now! Thank you.

  54. U Keys, Chester

    Milo has absolutely loved A-Star Sports. Mark is a fantastic teacher and has made every session fun. I have no doubt I’ll be bringing my daughter to A-Star Sports when she is older. Many thanks.

  55. E Johnson, Chester

    The activities are great, the boys love it and it has made a huge difference to their confidence. They love Mark who is excellent at motivating the kids and managing them when they are very excited. Great that the activities are tailored and develop as the kids do. The boys love it and always enjoy sports club. Keep up the great work.

  56. S Evans, Chester

    Ewan has been attending sessions for a couple of years now and still enjoys attending. Mark is a great teacher for the children as he is firm but fair. He also made Ewan’s birthday party very special.

  57. D Hutton, Chester

    Ollie really enjoys his sports classes. He can be quite shy so the class really brings him out of himself. He is making noticeable improvements with his ball skills and is keen to play the games at home too. I really like the range of games to keep 2-3 year olds interested, not an easy task!

  58. A Taylor, Chester

    Another brilliant year! Great to see teamwork being established with the children. Gary does a superb job of bringing each child on, at their own pace.

  59. B Little, Chester

    Best extracurricular sport in the Chester area. Gary is leagues ahead as a coach when compared to other sports coaches from our experience. Love the inclusive attitude and how the coaches always remember that our son is left handed.

  60. T Weeks, Chester

    Both my girls have absolutely loved A-Star Sports. The activities are age appropriate, seem very well thought out and give us great ideas of games to play at home too. Gary is absolutely brilliant!

  61. Mrs Appleton, Chester

    Will always enjoys every A-Star Sports class. It is great that there is such a variety of sports and activities for him to enjoy.

  62. Zoe Morrey

    Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her 8th birthday party. Gary was fantastic – he made sure all of the children were involved and having fun. There was non-stop laughter, fun and enjoyment from start to finish. This was one of the most stress free parties we have had, due to the fact that Gary did everything and we could sit back and enjoy watching everyone having fun. We have received many comments from our friends saying how much their children enjoyed it. We would highly recommend A-Star Sports parties. Thank you Gary!

  63. Sharon

    We had a birthday party for my daughter’s 4th birthday party hosted by Steven. It was such a great experience and he made it completely hassle free! All of the kids (and adults) were laughing the whole time and I’m still getting comments 2 weeks on about how much fun everyone had. I would highly recommend an A-Star Sports party to anyone.

  64. Grace (Chester)

    Gary, thanks so much for doing Evan’s party on Saturday – he had a great time and the feedback from the parents has been amazing.

  65. Jo Hawley

    Booked Mark at A-Star Sports for my daughter’s 5th birthday party on Sunday 14 June. He did a brilliant job, kept the kids entertained, happy and under control for the duration and definitely went the extra mile helping to tidy up, lining kids up for party bags, organising group photo etc. He was ace, would highly recommend Mark and A-Stars!

  66. D Yeoman, Chester

    This is William’s longest running class, he has been attending for 9 years! It has given him so much confidence and enjoyment in sport. Thank you Gary, Sharon and the rest of the team.

  67. MIchelle

    William aged 4 stopped the other day and held out his arm and said in a very grown up manner “after you please mummy”. When I asked who had he heard saying that he said it was Gary from A-Star (Chester) … what a great influence you guys have!

  68. L Chesters, Chester

    James has really enjoyed participating in the varied activities each week. He has learnt about teamwork and his concentration has improved. I will definitely bring my daughter when she is old enough

  69. Jack (aged 5), Chester

    I really like my A-Star Sports class. I love playing volleyball. I have lots of fun there and learn new things. I like all the jokes and news at drink time too!

  70. L Elshani, Chester

    Alastair is fantastic with the children and an asset to A-Star Sports. Ben has enjoyed each and every well organised, fun filled session. He has especially enjoyed the football and basketball sessions and his skill and confidence levels have increased tenfold.

  71. Sarah Gleave

    Had a fantastic A-Star Sports party for our 6 year old son and 26 friends. Kyle (Chester) was superb in organising the games and keeping them all entertained, he even remembered every childs name. He also helped distributing the party food and tidying up afterwards. Many thanks.

  72. Guilden Sutton Pre-School

    Thank you for coming and doing a fantastic sports session with Preschool this morning. The children loved it :)

  73. K.Shepherd

    All I can say is fantastic. I had a party at the weekend for my 4 year old daughter. Steven (Dundee) was fantastic. He engaged with all the children and was fun and friendly. It was great to see the children laughing and having fun. Steven even got the adults to take part which was great fun too. I have had many positive comments as this was the 1st party like this for our group of children. Would definitely use Steven and A-Star Sports again.

  74. Dominique McIntosh

    We had an A-Star Sports party for our 5 year old daughter. It was fantastic. Steven (Dundee & Angus) made it easy to throw a party, advising on suitable venues and times. All the children had a fabulous time whilst the parents sat and watched. The children were totally engaged, having a fun time and well controlled!! We had lots of compliments from the other parents. An all round 10 stars for us.

  75. Judi Stevens-Phoenix

    Had an A-Star Sports party for my 5 year old’s birthday this weekend. A massive thank you to the coach Alastair Ross (Chester) for all his efforts and help. Parents made comments on being very impressed he managed to keep 20 children’s attention the whole time all of whom thoroughly enjoyed all the activities. We’d recommend these parties for anyone looking for something a bit different, energetic and entertaining! The birthday boy absolutely loved it!!!!

  76. Jenny Coakley-Harding

    Mark (Chester) is an absolutely fantastic coach, brilliant with the children (in particular the children who do not have much confidence or are a bit shy). All the children love him.

    A big thanks to Mark for providing the entertainment for Finn’s birthday party. All the children had a brilliant time, the selection of games was great. I can’t believe you remembered all the names of 30 children, none of whom you’d met before !! Thank you for helping get the children organised for the food and drinks and for getting them all to sit still whilst we sang happy birthday.

    I would not hesitate to recommend an A-Star Sports party and in particular Mark. You did a fantastic job Mark, well done.

  77. L Barker

    Thank you to Alastair (Chester) for making my 5 year old’s birthday party so amazing. She and her friends had an amazing time. I would highly recommend A-Star Sports for any party.

  78. Katie T-E

    Kyle has taught my children for almost five years altogether – my son and daughter love his classes! What has impressed me most about Kyle, is the way he can relate to and engage with children of all ages and both genders. He is a fantastic teacher – hugely positive and very motivational. We are extremely grateful for all the sports he has introduced our children to and the manner in which he has taught them. I can highly recommend him and his classes!

  79. J.HALL

    I can’t speak highly enough of Steve who kept 36 children of varied ages totally entertained and active at my son’s 6th birthday party. I had also used Steve last year for my son’s 5th birthday party and all 46 of his friends from nursery were there :) Steve was highly professional and kept all the children entertained from start to finish! Both parties were fantastic stress free because of Steve’s fun-packed games!

    Big thanks to Steve for giving Leno the most fantastic birthday parties, which all the kids thoroughly enjoyed! Also thanks for getting them all organised for drinks, food and blowing out the candles on the cakes! Great selection of games for both the boys and girls. Also thanks for suggestions on which hall to use, which was really good.

  80. Ceri

    Thank you, Steven (Dundee and Angus), for helping to give Charlie and Harris a fabulous 5th birthday party! It was non-stop and action and fun and he entertained the children (from toddlers to 5 year olds) brilliantly. There was lots of laughs and silliness but at the same time Steven was in complete control of all of them! I would certainly recommend Steven to anyone looking for a fun, stress free party!

  81. Debbie

    Thank you Steven (Dundee) for giving our son a fantastic party for his 6th birthday. It was extremely well organised and had the perfect balance of great fun for the children with balancing keeping 24 very excited children safe. We would not hesitate recommending a party.

  82. Leanne

    We had a A-Star Sports party for our 5 year old daughter and her best friend. It was fantastic. Gary made it easy to throw a party for the whole class and some! All the children had a fabulous time whilst the parents sat and watched. The children were totally engaged, having a fun time and well controlled!! We had lots of compliments from the other parents. An all round excellent experience. 5 stars from us!

  83. Sarah Burrell

    Hi Brian,

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for such an amazing party. We’re really chuffed with how the day went – you were fantastic and all the kids had such a great time!

    Thank you for making Rory’s 6th birthday party one to remember!

    Sarah, Fraser & Rory

  84. devyani tripathi

    Thanks to Steven (Dundee & Angus) who delivered a fantastic birthday party for my 4 year old in Feb 2015. Kids had a fab time and enjoyed a lot…recommend to all parents.

  85. Ceri Hughes

    Our party was held as a joint 6th birthday party and both boys and their friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The party was run by Alastair (Chester) and he kept everything safe, fun and under control. We were impressed with the party timings, range of activities plus organisation of a large group of children. Alastair really worked hard to include everybody and there were no gaps or quiet spells in the fun but likewise no pressure to join in if children felt initially nervous or shy. A great party was had by all and as parents we were really impressed too, thank you!

  86. Lesley Brown

    I can’t speak highly enough of Alastair (Chester) who kept 30 children of varied ages totally entertained and active at my son’s recent party held jointly with his school friend. They were 6 but we had ages from 3 up to 8, and boys and girls. Alastair has a winning formula of fun, active sports and games – and held their attention and kept their energy going for the 2 hour party. He had lots of good quality kit doing ball games, tag, parachute fun and traditional games with a twist. We held it at Hawarden Institute which worked really well. Thank you to A-Star and especially Alastair!

  87. Ellie Johnson

    Fantastic stress free party for 5 year olds! Big thanks to Mark (Chester) for giving Ellis and Gabriel the most fantastic birthday party which all the kids thoroughly enjoyed! Also thanks for getting them all organised for drinks, food and blowing out the candles on the cakes! Great selection of games for both the boys and girls, no doubt they will be asking for the same next year. I had high expectations as they love the weekly class so much and wasn’t disappointed. Also thanks for suggestions on which hall to use, which was really good. Gabriel wants me to say it was “triple good”, Ellis says it was “fantastic”. Two very happy boys.

  88. Johnson Family

    My son asked repeatedly for an A-Star Sports party after attending a friend’s. So for his 6th birthday I contacted Sharon and was able to book Gary for my boy’s big day. WOW WOW he had a fantastic time and that was even before his friends arrived!!!! The party was amazing, the games varied and children completely engaged for the whole time. Gary was fantastic with all the children, and Seth still talks about him and the party now 2 weeks on!!! I can not recommend highly enough A-Star Sports, a healthy, fun, exciting, action packed party package. Thank you Gary and the team for easy booking, great help with venue and for making a birthday boy VERY HAPPY.

  89. Lynsey

    My daughter has been going to A-Star Sports (Steven – Dundee & Angus) for about 6 months and really enjoys his class so we decided to ask him to do her 3rd birthday party. Steven was excellent – he managed to keep 19 x 2/3 year olds engaged and entertained. The kids absolutely loved it and so did some of the parents. He was also extremely helpful advising on other areas like finding venues and food quantities, which for me as a novice in this area was invaluable. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

  90. Angela Morrison

    My son Lucas has been attending A-Star Sports for just over a year now. He loves it. Today he had his 4th birthday party with Kyle (Chester), it was brilliant! There was around 25 children and Kyle had them engaged and having fun from the word go. He remembered all their names and helped with everything from giving out party food to the tidy up at the end, everyone had a great time, all the parents said how great it was.

    I would highly recommend A-Star Sports for not only the great parties but the classes as well. Brilliant!!

    We’ve been attending classes locally for a couple of years since our first A-Star Sports party – this weekend saw our second party which was fantastic as ever! Mark (Chester) knew all 26 children’s names within 5 minutes and kept them fully engaged for 90 minutes with a fantastic variety of games, adapted to match the birthday boy’s Temple Run theme! Just brilliant. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    I would just like to say a massive thank you to Steven (Dundee & Angus) for Dilyn’s party in Carnoustie on Saturday, all of the kids had a great time especially the birthday boy :) Dilyn has attended a few A-Star Sports parties and he always has a fun time! Other parents commented on how good Steven was with the kids too :) Thanks again.

  93. S. Macrae

    Another great A-Star Sports party. Steven (Dundee & Angus) was brill. Booked an A-Star Sports party for my little girl’s 5th birthday…she loved it, all the kids who came loved it and even the adults loved it…have also held one previously for my wee boy’s 5th birthday and would highly recommend…lively, fun and kids just love the games…perfect.

  94. Sophie Carmichael

    I called Brian (Edinburgh) to organise my son’s 8th birthday. He always got back to me and was very helpful with my questions. It was great to have the reassurance that someone was taking over the running of a large party for boys. Dale came along and was amazing. He was fun, had great control of the children and got them involved in some really fun games. There was plenty of laughter and cheering and he made my little boy feel really special on his birthday. Thank you to Brian and Dale. Great party!!

  95. J Mallinson

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you for organising Evie and Rory’s party. Alastair (Chester) was amazing, my children instantly adored him, and he did a wonderful job – keeping some very exuberant youngsters fully engaged for an hour and a half!!

    The whole party was extremely professional, Alastair couldn’t have been more helpful. I also really appreciate all Sharon’s work in sorting it out at pretty short notice! I shall certainly be recommending A-Star Sports parties to all.

  96. Kerry Crichton

    Hi Brian,

    I came with my son Taylor last night to the Bonnyrigg class for the first time in a few months and just can’t believe the difference in him!

    Last year was a big year with his baby brother arriving and starting school nursery. We saw a big dip in his confidence and he withdrew a little. Before starting A-Star Sports we had tried him at a football class for a term. Every week he would join in for 5 mins of the 45 min session and we finally removed him. The guys were great but just didn’t know enough of how to encourage those who were shy. The first week he started with you I saw a huge difference although he was still cautious with some games…..now he joins in the whole session and, most importantly, LOVES his sports class and Brian bumblebee!! Myself and his dad are so proud of him.

    The rapport you have with the kid is first class and they all listen to you so well but still have so much fun. It’s a cracking wee class with a fabby teacher and Taylor will be attending for as long as it keeps him smiling and confident.

    Thank you
    Kerry Crichton

  97. Kate Trevor-Barnston

    We would highly recommend Adrian Dunn (Wrexham) from A-Star Sports to entertain all the children at your child’s birthday party!

    We asked Adrian to host an A-Star Sports birthday party for 2 boys aged 5 and 6 in a local hall, and he did a truly fantastic job keeping all the girls and boys busy and having enormous fun for an hour and a half!

    He skilfully learns all the children’s names by heart in the first 10 minutes, and builds a rapport with them very quickly. Every single child joined in – there were no children afraid to participate – and Adrian had them all squealing with excitement and running around the hall non-stop, enjoying a wide range of age-appropriate sporty games.

    Adrian has a genuinely warm and friendly way with children; he is talented at keeping their enthusiasm going, and making sure each child is having a great time. He leads the happy birthday song when the cake comes out, and hands out the party bags at the end.

    We could not be happier with how the party went – thank you very much Adrian!!

  98. Andy & Gianna

    Many thanks to Alastair (Chester) for his enthusiasm and helpfulness at our son’s 4th birthday party, many of the other parents commented on how well he kept the children engaged with the games.

    Not only that but he helped moving tables and getting the children in place for their meal, can’t recommend enough, what a refreshing change.

    Thanks again.

  99. Lisa fox-pritchard

    I asked A-Star Sports (Chester) to host a party for my son Harry’s 4th birthday. I have been nothing but impressed from start to finish. Mark arrived 40 mins before the party started to set up and was so helpful even setting up the tables and chairs and tidying up after the party was finished. The children’s ages varied from 2-7 and Mark was absolutely fantastic with them and I was amazed he held the children’s attention for a full hour and a half of action packed fun filled games and sports. All the children and the mums and dads had a fabulous time and I could not recommend this company more…….and I’m a fussy one.

    Thank you so much for making my son’s birthday amazing.

  100. Merlyn Soutar

    Happiness, laughter, exercise.
    The joy on the faces of the children taking part in Callum’s lesson was wonderful to watch and listen to.
    They were exhausted and happy children.
    Thank you VERY much from all of us ….pupils and teacher!

  101. Mr and Mrs Brassington

    Gary (Chester) recently entertained 30 children at our son’s 5th birthday party. The children had a great time, they loved running around and playing all the different games and we had great reports from the parents as their children slept well that night! We would recommend Gary to everyone!

  102. Cylch y Foel

    A huge thank you to Gary for attending our first Birthday Party and entertaining all the Playgroup & Nursery Children – they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the parents were so impressed as to how professional and captivating he was. Many thanks – Cylch y Foel

  103. J. Linton

    My son Noah had his 6th birthday party in November with Steven Cairney from A-Star Sports, in Carnoustie, and had an absolute ball. His friends thoroughly enjoyed it as well and Steven kept them well entertained for two hours – it was a parents’ dream come true when it comes to keeping 25 kids entertained. Would thoroughly recommend A-Star Sports to my friends.

  104. K Taylor

    My son had an A-Star Sports party just under a month ago in Chester. I wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic party. He had such a wonderful time! Kyle was amazing – the children loved him. It was brilliant from start to finish, Archie loved every second. Even helping Kyle set the hall up was great fun and all part of it for him. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends and family, and Archie is already planning his A-Star party for next year!

  105. Ivan

    Just wanted to thank Mark (Chester) for a fun packed 8th Birthday party for my son. All the children had a great time and responded to him really well. His help at the beginning and end of the party was most welcome and all the kids went home happy. It was as stress free as a party of 20 children can be! Overall a really positive experience.

  106. P Spence

    A huge thank you to Steven (Dundee & Angus) for such a fantastic party the other weekend. Birthday girl, Daisy LOVED it and so did all her 25 friends! I would highly recommend an A-Star Sports birthday party to anyone that wants a hassle free and highly entertaining party for their child.

  107. Georgina

    A huge thank you to Gary for my son Thomas’s birthday 4th Birthday party. How he keeps the attention of 25 4 year olds I will never know! Everyone had a brilliant time and were really impressed. A stress free easy party enjoyed by everyone.

  108. Lisa

    A huge thank you to Gary (Chester) for making Benjamin’s 6th birthday party so much fun for all 30 children and so stress-free for us as Mum and Dad.

    Gary easily holds the attention of every child, even in such a large group. He also manages to remember everyone’s names when he has never met them beforehand.

    I was exceptionally impressed that Gary stayed for the full duration of the party. He lined all the party guests up after the activities had finished and then coordinated the group to use the loo and ensured hands were washed before bringing them to the food area. Gary was available to offer help during and after the food. He offered useful tips, like present the cake early so there is time to cut and place into party bags. At the end, Gary again lined up the group ready for the party bags and home time. He even stayed until the last guest was collected.

    I cannot recommend an A-Star Sports party or Gary highly enough. Thoroughly professional, loads of fun and tired happy children at the end – what more could you ask for.

  109. Michaela

    Just to say thank you (Gary – Chester) for a fantastic party on Saturday. The children really enjoyed it and were completely worn out after! So many of the parents have commented on what a great party it was too. You knew all the children’s names and kept their attention for the whole time with really fun games. Staying for the duration definitely took all the stress out of the organisation or running of it for us also. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend A Star Sports. Brilliant party!

    Thanks again,

    Michaela

  110. Christine

    A huge thank you to Gary (Chester) for a fantastic party for our daughter. She had an amazing time, and so did her 20 friends!!! Everyone really enjoyed all the games – parents included, and Gary was so helpful with everything from setting up, to the singing of ‘happy birthday’ and giving out the party bags. We can’t recommend an A-Star Sports party enough!!

  111. SJWs

    Just wanted to thank Gary (Chester) for a superb party for my 5 yr old. He had such a great time, I did virtually nothing and the control and level of engagement Gary managed of over 30 4/5 yr olds was awesome. I’ve had so many compliments from parents of children who attended – it was a great success. I couldn’t recommend Gary more!

  112. A Griffin

    I just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you to Alastair (Chester) for Ben and Zack’s party yesterday. He was great with the children and they all had a wonderful time. Ben said it was the best party ever!

    A massive thank you to Mark and Alastair (Chester) for delivering a truly amazing party last Saturday. Our 5 year old son and his 23 friends had an absolutely brilliant time.

The children loved it and the Mums enjoyed coffee and biscuits whilst their children were kept entertained for an hour and a half! Perfect. Can’t thank you enough. Emily & Linford

  114. J Neve

    Just wanted to say thanks to Kyle (Chester) for a fab birthday party. Eleanor had a lovely time and as always

    and sorting out afterwards was very much appreciated.

  115. Nicky Robinson

    Kyle (Chester) – Thank you so much for Joseph’s fantastic A-Star Sports “Football Themed” party last Saturday, it was perfect for a group of football mad 8 year olds. Joseph described it as the best party ever and his friends are still talking about it!! Your organisational skills and professionalism are amazing, whilst ensuring that the children have a great time.

    How do you remember all the children’s names after just 5 minutes of knowing them……….??

  116. Delyth Jones

    A huge thank you to Gary and Alastair for a fun packed A-Star Sports party for my son’s 4th birthday on Sunday in Chester!

Many thanks, Del Jones

  117. Santana Forrester-Cox

    A big Thank You to Leo and team (Colchester & NE Essex) for a fantastic day. Bobbie really enjoyed his 5th Birthday party, so much he wants the same next year. All parents commented on how good it was and something they hadn’t seen before. They interacted with the kids so well with a variety of different sports games, it was really enjoyed by everyone. Arrived early (before I got there) to set up and stayed until the end, very reasonably priced and would definitely recommend. Thanks so much.

  118. S Sherry

    Kate is running at Vale Royal, hockey at Deeside and playing for school; Ben is captain at Chester Rugby Club, football at Tarvin and cricket with Cheshire CC – both are loving their sport I’m sure in part because of their very positive start with you! (Sharon – Chester). Thanks again.

  119. L Evans

  120. Kathleen Rothwell

    Ethan has loved attending A-Star Sports holiday club with Adrian (South Ribble & Chorley) . He has been able to try out different sports with football, dodgeball and rugby amongst his favourites. Adrian makes it fun and has a great way with children. We thoroughly recommend this to others as an all round sports introduction. Nice to see them learning the rules of various sports as well. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.

  121. Gail Meek

    Gemma is a legend! The party she did today for my daughter Jocelyn’s 8th birthday was fantastic, she had them all under control and having great fun and joining in. Could not recommend her highly enough. Absolutely fantastic, thank you.

  123. Anthea, Claire & Liz

    We would like to thank A-Star Sports for a fantastic party for our 6 year old girls. The girls loved every minute of it. Mark (Chester) kept 30 kids entertained throughout and remembered all their names. The older children (9 and 10 year olds) had a great time, too. We had purple volleyballs from A-Star Sports as party favours which was a big hit with all the children. Thanks again for making their day so special, and for helping us clear up too!

  124. Kirsty

    Mark (Chester) is a total credit to A-Star Sports. I cannot thank him enough. He had 30 kids in the palm of his hand and even remembered their names – brilliant! Could not have asked for a better party host and we will definitely return and so will our friends. Thank you.

  125. Jenny McMillan

    We had an A-Star Sports party for our daughter and her friends’ 5th birthdays. I cannot rate Steven highly enough. He is great and so are the parties he holds. The kids were mesmerised from start to finish. It really takes the stress out of having a child’s party. Great fun….and it tires them out too ;)
    Thanks so much.

  126. Sally

    Thank you so much for the amazing 5th birthday party Mark (Chester) hosted for us. The kids have had a ball. Watching their faces when the crocodile dragged them under the parachute was hilarious! And our daughter was delighted she outsprinted all the boys in tag rugby! Such a stress free party and so many mums saying how great it was! Thank you x

Mark (Chester) arrived and couldn’t have been more helpful, he kept the boisterous class on their toes for the whole time and created a fun filled action packed party for Harry! Thank you, you certainly made my life a whole lot easier, and I will be passing your name on to all of the parents who thought it was a great idea. Also, I would like to thank Mark very much for offering to stay to help clear up at the end – it doesn’t get better than that!!

Thank you so much for all your efforts.

    Week in week out Leo always enjoys his session, (Chester) no matter what sport he is always engaged. I really like that no matter what their ability everyone has a great time.

  197. Shonagh

    Steven-Smelly-Socks rocks! If you want a hassle free, 100% professional party which kids love then book Steven from A-Star Sports Dundee.

  198. Sarah

    Dale (from Edinburgh) was fantastic with 27 kids today at a birthday party for my 8 year old twins. He organised the party with great professionalism, ease and humour. We were very impressed as he knew exactly how to handle the kids and keep them motivated and enthusiastic. The games were simple, fun and well paced. The feedback from parents has been great too. One little boy said that, “it’s the best party that I’ve been to EVER!”

  199. Alexandra

    How do you keep 30 5-year olds entertained and having fun without complete and utter chaos? Easy, have an A-Star Sports party! Gary (Chester) was fantastic with the children, he remembered all their names, made sure all of them were included and above all else had fun. Thank you Gary for a fabulous birthday party, I would definitely recommend A-Star Sports for both parties and weekly classes.

  200. Sonya Coppell

    Jaden (aged 5) has loved the sessions with Adrian (Wrexham). He enjoys all the games and has become more confident and sociable since starting the class 3 weeks ago. Adrian presented Jaden with a trophy for his patience, for following instructions and trying his best. He has not been able to stop talking about it and he has even showed it off at school. The transformation in my little boy in only a few weeks is remarkable and I would recommend Adrian’s sessions to any parent. A-Stars sports……gets an A Star from me!

  201. Collette

    We had a joint party for our 7 year old son and 9 year old daughter which was run by Kyle (Chester). At first I was nervous about organising this type of party for a younger group of boys together with an older group of girls, however Kyle was absolutely fabulous with them and even those children in the group who aren’t keen on sport had a wonderful time. He had a great rapport with all of them and made sure they were all happy during the party. He also took all of the stress out of it for us, organising them all throughout from the games to singing Happy Birthday at the end. I couldn’t recommend it more!

  202. Ceri Dulohery

    Kyle (Chester) hosted my son’s 5th birthday party and he was brilliant!! He kept the children engaged and busy and they all seemed to have a fantastic time, especially the birthday boy! Great party, would recommend to anyone with similar aged children who love to run around and be noisy!

  203. Lucy FitzHugh

    My son William had an amazing 5th birthday party thanks to Mark from A-Star Sports (Chester). Mark was really helpful and arrived early to help us set up the venue. We had about 20 children and Mark is fantastic at remembering all the children’s names. Mark managed to keep all the children engaged and entertained for the full duration of the party, which is a great effort given their age. I had lots of positive feedback from parents and plenty of tired out children at the end of the party. I would certainly recommend it for anyone thinking about a birthday party. Thanks again, Mark.

  204. Lorraine Nutt

    Many thanks to Steven (Dundee & surrounding area) for my son’s 5th birthday party, which we held in St Andrews. The children had such a lot of fun and they responded to him so well. It was lovely to see. I also appreciated Steven’s help and advice with the set up of the event.

    My son also attends Steven’s Broughty Ferry class on a Monday, and it’s the only one he would never miss. We would both highly recommend the classes and parties to anyone. Thanks again!

  205. Jill Dolan

    Steven made C’s party! All had a great time. Big age range from 4-11 and all enjoyed themselves. Was able to keep rowdy ones in order and encourage shy children to join in. Very active fun for all and much less work for me! Thanks.

  206. Jeff McDermott

    My little boy Caleb’s 5th birthday party was a huge success, thanks to Steven s socks (Dundee based, you know who you are). Steven put together a great mixture of games, exercise and fun for all the kids. He got to know all their names, he kept them all involved and engaged throughout the 2 hour session, with a break for food and juice. Thank you very much, we will definitely use A-Star Sports again in the future.

  207. Clare

    Brian (Edinburgh) provided a fantastic party for my 5 year old son and his friends. They had a great time and joined in enthusiastically – great fun! I had nothing to do but enjoy watching. I would highly recommend this for anyone planning a party.

  208. Mairi Donald

    Our daughter absolutely loves attending Steven Cairney’s weekly A-Star Sports Sessions in Tayport. So she was desperate to have him organise an A-Star Sports Party for her 5th birthday. It proved to be a well-organised, energetic and action-packed morning. The whole event was filled full of fun and happy kids. They had a ball! Steven couldn’t have been more helpful. We’d recommend Steven’s A-Star Sports classes and parties to anyone.

  209. Angela Souter

    Thank you to Steven (Dundee & Angus) for making Cameron’s sixth birthday a great success. His pals and him had a great time. Steven was enthusiastic, funny and committed to ensuring the children had a great time. We will use him again! :)

  210. Jackie

    Thank you very much to Gary (Chester) who did Dominic’s 6th birthday party today. He had an absolute ball as did the other 31 kids! Great credit to you. Thank you very much.

  211. Laura

    Thanks to Kyle (Chester) for a great party for my son’s 3rd birthday! All the children had a blast and it was fun for the parents to watch. Highly recommended!

  212. Ric Harris

    Gary ran a party for our four year old daughter and ten friends, was wonderful to see how he managed to keep them all entertained. They all had a great time and all the running around had used up some of that seemingly endless energy kids have! Thoroughly recommended, they are very good at pitching things at the right age – they have also done a party for our son when he was six, and he loves going to the holiday clubs.

  213. Lisa Swann

    My son Lucas had an amazing 5th birthday party thanks to Mark from A-Star Sports (Chester). It was well organised from start to finish. Mark arrived early to help us set up the hall and got to know all the children’s names as they came in. All 21 children enjoyed the different games Mark played with them they had so much fun and keep telling me how good the party was, as do all the parents who watched. I have recommended A-Star Sports to them. Thanks again.

  214. Wendy

    Max had a brilliant party today. Thank you Gary (Chester), you were amazing with the kids! All the kids and parents loved it.

  215. Erin

    I just want to say a huge thank you to Mark (Chester) who came to do my son Elis’s party today. It was amazing and everyone seemed to have an amazing time. Mark was a massive help and kept 26 very energetic children engaged from start to finish. So impressed how he remembers all their names! Would highly recommend A-Star Sports to anybody who wants a fun-filled action-packed professionally run children’s party!

  216. Katie

    Finlay gets so much out of A-Star Sports and I love the fact he is interested in all sports and sees sport as fun. We have also noticed a big change in his levels of confidence since he started (18 months ago).

  217. Helen McDougall

    Kevin from A-Star Sports ran our son’s 6th birthday party yesterday which was a huge success. He was amazing and managed to keep 30 kids entertained and included throughout. My son thought Kevin was great and one of the mums even commented that he knew all the kids names very quickly. From a mum’s perspective, Kevin’s enthusiasm and help reassured me before, during and after the party – I can’t praise him enough and would recommend A-Star Sports anytime. Many thanks again, Kevin!

  218. Helena Edgerton

    Huge thanks to Dale and A-Star Sports for a brilliant 5th birthday party for my son. All the kids had a total ball. The party ran really well and the structure of the two hour party is perfect. Rory always thoroughly enjoyed Dale’s classes and thinks he is the funniest person ever! All the parents were amazed at Dale’s wonderful way of controlling the kids and teaching them fun games, whilst keeping the sense of fun. Parents and kids alike were all very impressed by A-Star Sports and Dale and I would thoroughly recommend an A-Star Sports party to anyone. It’s worth every penny!

    • Emily Hughes

      My son regularly goes to A-Star Sports club on a Friday afternoon with Gary in Upton. It is a well planned active session which my son absolutely loves. He wears his A-Star t-shirt very proudly. We decided to ask Gary if he would lead a birthday party as we knew it would be a hit with my son, his friends and their parents too! A winner all around! Gary was brilliant and the party was an absolute success. I highly recommend it. Thank you.

  219. Paul Kidley

    Thanks to Gary (Chester) for making Alvaro’s 4th birthday party so easy and fun! What a delight for all the kids to be engaged with a great selection of games, and for all the parents to relax. We would happily recommend you try it out if you haven’t before.

  220. Justine Angrave

    We want to say a huge thank you to A-Star Sports for my daughter’s recent 5th birthday party. Gary was absolutely brilliant! He kept in touch with me beforehand and was very happy to take on board my daughter’s request for a Wizard of Oz theme. On the day of the party he was there early setting up and helping us. There were 30 children altogether (of whom Gary had probably met about 8 before) but he seemed to know all of their names really quickly! He got them all playing games (with a Wizard of Oz twist!) and they had a fab time. He made my daughter feel really special as the birthday girl. When it was time for eating Gary got all the children lined up and then into the room with the food after a quick spritz of hand gel! He chatted to the children and us during the meal and generally helped out which was great. At the end he even helped coordinate the handing out of the party bags! We cannot recommend him highly enough and if you book an A-Star Sports party for your child, I guarantee they and their guests will have a wonderful time. Thanks again Gary, from Jessie and family.

  221. Kathleen Rothwell

    Big thanks to Adrian (East Lancs Chorley, Preston) who ran the holiday club over the easter break. Ethan had a fantastic time playing all the different sports, some of which he hadn’t done before. I thoroughly recommend A-Star Sports to other parents.

  222. Cat Quigley

    Kyle from A-Star Sports did my son’s 4th party yesterday! An absolutely brilliant session, really engaged the attention of 20 three and four year olds! Brilliant choice of games. Great reaction from watching parents. Would highly recommend A-Star Sports for a birthday party.

    Thanks again!!!

  223. Carl

    Just had Kyle do our 4 year old’s birthday party. I can only say that he was amazing with all the kids, had their complete attention throughout the whole party. All the parents commented on how good he was, would definitely recommend him in the Northwich area and will be using him again in the future !!!!!!

  224. Laura Hendry-Kristensen

    My son has been attending A-Star Sports in Edinburgh since January and loves it. Dale is great with the kids and my son is looking forward to his first holiday club during the Easter break. 5 stars for combining discipline and fun. What a great class.

  225. Claire

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Kyle for running Oliver’s party today (in Chester). He made sure the children had fun whilst keeping them under control like the Pied Piper. Pure genius. I would highly recommend him. Most other party entertainers do there bit then leave you to it but not A-Star Sports. Worth every penny. Thanks again!

  226. Rachel

    My son’s 4th Birthday Party..!! 28 children…you need an amazing entertainer! I had one, thank goodness. Mark – (Wirral based) was brilliant from the word go. He arrived before us, offered to help us set up. As the children arrived he got to know each of their names. The children were engaged throughout…(1 1/2 hours)!!! and thoroughly enjoyed the games. I felt that I was able to see my son and his friends interact and play ‘together’, there was good camaraderie between all the children which was lovely to see. By the time the children came to eat they were ready for their lunch!!!! I could go on but I think you get the gist. Thank you, will definitely use A-Star Sports again in the future.

  227. Nicola Smart

    Thank you so much for Neve’s party Kevin (Glasgow). Was fantastic and the kids all loved their new pal Kevin! Brilliant time had by all. Thanks again.

  228. Trudie

    My three year old started this class this term at North Merchiston club in Edinburgh and has loved it from the start. Dale is excellent with the kids and as a naturally cautious child my little one’s confidence in his physical ability has improved significantly. I’m already planning how to fit the class in over the next couple of years, including the summer club! Excellent value for money and would recommend it to anyone with kids over two.

  229. D Davis

    Thank you so much for making Roxanne’s 5th birthday party so special. She had an amazing time and so did all her friends. (Gary – Chester)

  230. G Roberts

    Mark (Chester) controlled and engaged the kids brilliantly. They followed his every command and kept kids and parents laughing. To keep them that engaged for 1.5hrs at 4/5yrs old is remarkable. Some of the parents comments: “the party is one that will be remembered”, “a real treat”, “he’s amazing at remembering their names”(several parents said similar comments), “he’s (their son) totally worn out, thankyou”, “I think my son would really benefit from weekly classes like this, it’s really kept him engaged”, “he’s (Mark) amazing isn’t he”.

  231. Aisling Harper

    Thank you so so much for a fab birthday party for Fynn today with his friends, Kevin (Glasgow). It was so refreshing to actually see all Fynn’s friends joining in and playing together. They all went home happy and exhausted! That was the plan! Lots of great texts from parents saying kids were buzzing about the party and they want one just like that. Thank you again for making Fynn’s and our day lovely and memorable.

  232. Alison Campbell

    A very big thank you to Kevin for the fabulous party he ran in Uddingston for my six year old’s birthday. He was enthusiastic, friendly, relaxed, organised, practical and fun from the very first phone call to the follow up email. All 24 kids were wrapt from start to finish with the games and stories he told them, and Kevin made it easy and relaxed to get them all fed and watered along the way. All the kids went home and told their parents what a fabulous time they had… and one parent booked a party for their son on the spot! We’ll definitely be booking another one – thank you so much :-)

  233. Caroline & Mark Willis

    A huge, and belated thank you to Gary for 2 parties over the space of 3 weeks. Tom (7) and Ethan (5) had a fantastic time and so did all of their friends. Gary did a wonderful job of making sure the birthday boy was made to feel special while still including each and every friend making sure no one was left out. If you want a stress free party while still making sure your child has a wonderful birthday then an A-Star Sports party is the best option. I’m still amazed at the way Gary can remember every child’s name!

  234. Lorna Sharp

    My son was initially introduced to A Star Sports through his nursery that ran a programme for an hour one day a week when he was 2yrs old. It very quickly became his favourite day at nursery and Dale, who ran the course, became a household name. To find out what all the fuss was about I booked a course of lessons at the North Merchiston Club and soon realised why my son enjoyed it so much, not only was it an opportunity to run around for an hour kicking, throwing and catching balls, hoops and bean bags but it also developed confidence, co-ordination skills and team building. Dale ran a fun but constructive session with heaps of enthusiasm and his unique method of discipline with the children meant everyone behaved and listened! So 2yrs later we are still going and I would highly recommend this course to anyone, it has been the best “kids club” money spent. Thank you for all your hard work.

  235. Lynne

    My 4 year old daughter absolutely loves her weekly A-Star Sports class in Edinburgh. Dale is fantastic with the little ones. He provides a fun play environment yet easily commands control and respect from the children. I think it’s great that they are taught a variety of sports. Both my daughter and 6 year old son have attended A-Star Sports holiday club days, which I would also highly recommend.

  236. Emily

    My two sons have been attending A-Star Sports in Edinburgh and we really enjoy the classes. The boys have grown in confidence and skills and Dale and Brian make the classes extremely welcoming and fun and disciplined in a very relaxed way. Would definitely recommend A-Star Sports to others – thank you for such great classes!

  237. L Wilson

    I just want to thank you and your team for a fabulous party yesterday at Little Leigh Village Hall. Mark (Chester) turned up long before he was expected, and immediately started entertaining the birthday boys and their siblings while we set up the party room. He was very friendly and helpful, and offered assistance with the setting up and moving of furniture.

    When the children arrived and the party started, he managed to keep the attention of 24 five and six year olds, and a lovely touch was him remembering each and every child’s name. The games he played were perfect for the age group, and the feedback received from the other parents is that the children really enjoyed themselves. He ensured that the birthday boys were always involved and made them feel extra special.

    After the fun and games, Mark continued to help by bringing out the food, pouring drinks, etc., and taking the time to chat to the parents. All in all, the party could not have gone better, and we are very pleased that we chose to book your company to do our party.

    I should also mention that Sharon was so helpful on the phone during booking, and all the correspondence since then has been friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to my family and friends.

  238. Christine Nixon

    I would like to say a huge thank you to Gary (Chester) for a wonderful 5th birthday party! All the children had a great time and were kept happy and entertained for 2 hours!! I cannot recommend Gary enough, he is great with all the children and engages with them all wonderfully. I had one very happy birthday boy! Thank you Gary!!

  239. debbie dewar

    I have nothing but praise for A-Star Sports! My son attends a weekly class (Dale – Edinburgh) and loves every minute, the activities are well planned and the patience the guys have is just amazing! We also had an A-Star Sports party for my daughter and Brian was fantastic at keeping the kids entertained and a great time was most definitely had by all. I wouldn’t hesitate to have another A-Star Sports party again!

  240. Lisa Sinclair

    We would like to thank Callum (East Dunbartonshire) for providing the entertainment for our son Reece’s 6th birthday party. According to the kids, Reece’s party with “crazy Callum” was the best party ever!!!! We will certainly be recommending an A-Star Sports party to our friends.

  241. Helen

    Both my boys absolutely LOVE coming to ball skills each week. Dale (Edinburgh) is fantastic and teaches them in a fun and exciting way. Thank you for providing such great sports classes. I would certainly recommend A-Star Sports. Keep up the good work!

  242. Sam Holburn

    Harry started weekly classes at 2 1/2 and he not only loves them but I think they’ve really added to his development. Dale (Edinburgh) has a great rapport with all the kids and does a good job of holding their attention and getting them involved.

  243. Louise Taggart

    Ciarán absolutely loves “sports class”. Dale (Edinburgh) does a brilliant job at getting and keeping the kids engaged, encouraging them, but also keeping them in line if they’re playing up. There are always lots of laughs and Ciarán’s always keen to practice the new things he’s learned. We’ll definitely be back.

  244. Susan

    A-Star Sports is one of the highlights of Rory’s week – in fact he is obsessed with it :-) Dale (Edinburgh) and team do a great job of getting the kids enthused about sport. Also so impressed by the way they keep the kids under control and make sure they act respectfully.

  245. Jill, Fraser, Grace and Sam Tennant

    We would all like to thank Steven (Dundee & Angus) ever so much for the fantastic party you did for Sam and his pals. We were all really impressed and we have had loads of positive feedback from the kids and their parents too.

  246. Carl Kameen

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to Mark (Chester) for providing the entertainment at Isabella’s 4th Birthday party. He was absolutely brilliant with all 30 of the children, managed to control them and unbelievably managed to remember all of their names!! The fun and games kept all of the children entertained and feedbck from all parents was that the children had a great afternoon and were super excited. I cannot recommend A-Star Sports highly enough. Cheers Mark.

  247. Lezley Sutherland

    Gary did a brilliant job today at my twins 4th birthday party, keeping 26 very lively children engaged and entertained for nearly two hours! Lots of fun and laughter, lots of interaction and interesting activities and reportedly “the coolest party ever!!” Many of the parents who attended have already commented on how fantastic Gary is with all the children, remembering all their names and holding their interest with a variety of games and activities which are pitched pefectly for small children. A fabulous party, thank you very much Gary !!

  248. Nicola Lewis Smith

    15 x 7 year old boys in a hall with lots of things that can be thrown could be a disaster – but step in Kyle from A-Star Sports (Chester) to save the day! What a fantastic birthday party – the boys had a fab afternoon. If red cheeks are proportionate to having a good time then the boys had a great time and after all that they calmly sat down to their party food. Stress – what stress? We love Kyle!

  249. B. Mortell

    My two children are still playing with their foldable frisbees – as well as frisbee, several other made-up games including fastest re-folding!

  250. M. Worboys

    Thank you very much for the frisbee. This was a really nice gesture for the boys and girls. Gustav spent so much of his holiday playing outside with his frisbee that the washing machine couldn’t keep up with the constant dirty trousers! Frisbee also goes to school with Gustav every day – wish I could say that about books and homework…and, to top it off, it came skiing with us!

  251. B. Little

    Thank you, Gary (Chester), for a brilliant party. You made Casper feel very special by letting him go first all the time. I could hear the parents’ laughter as they enjoyed watching the kids. I will definitely be booking you again!

  252. Marianne

    Steven did our 5 year old son’s birthday party in Broughty Ferry. Everyone had a brilliant time and thoroughly enjoyed the games. Lots of very happy children and their parents. Thanks again, Steven.

  253. Stef Hume

    Hayden went to an A-Star Sports party in December, I was so impressed I phoned Steven the week after and booked Hayden’s party. The activities are great fun, Steven gets all the kids involved and most importantly the kids love him. Hayden can be quite shy but with Steven’s party he was completely confident and happy to take main stage as the birthday boy – something he would normally shy away from. I would definitely recommend an A-Star Sports party. Thank you Steve for making Hayden’s birthday such a special one xx

  254. Barbara

    Recently booked Tommy from A-Star Sports (Bearsden&Milngavie) for my son’s birthday party. He was so helpful with all the questions I had when getting the party organised. He showed up early on the day so I could get in and arrange the food and tables in the hall. The kids had so much fun. He seemed to have a great rapport with them in such a comparatively short time. Would definitely book another party.

  255. Natalie Eastwood

    Having just had Will’s 4th birthday party this afternoon, I want to say a huge thank you to A-Star Sports (Chester), in particular, Kyle Taylor who lead the party. Having had to postpone due to Chicken pox, Sharon was incredibly helpful and went out of her way to help re-arrange it all at such short notice. Today, Kyle was outstanding: knowing every child’s name within the first 10 minutes; engaging them at all times; including EVERY child throughout; and most of all, making sure they all had lots of fun! The number of positive comments from other parents speaks volumes, with many of them reporting that their child was saying it was “The best party EVER!”

  256. Tina Denbigh

    I would love to thank Gary (Chester) for helping to make Scott’s party so brilliant. He arrived early and once he’d set up his own gear, helped me to arrange the chairs in the hall. He seems to appear, by magic, at the door as each child arrives and greets them. How does he remember ALL the names! Every child enjoyed the party and many mums have praised Gary and his ability to include them all and with such enthusiasm. He then managed to occupy the children once they’d finished eating and arrange them in a neat little line ready for their party bags. The man is a true professional and I would highly, highly recommend A-Star Sports for a party.

  257. W Hall

    I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with Mark’s work at Elliott’s party on Sunday (Chester). He was fantastic with the 24 kids and they all had a great time. After the party, he even stayed on a little to help us tidy the room which we were very appreciative of. Please pass on our thanks and praise!

  258. Gemma McGrillis

    A very big thank you to Gary (Chester) for a fantastic party for my son’s 4th birthday! Every part of the afternoon was expertly planned and the kids had a really amazing time. Every child was included, every child had a smile on their face and (how I don’t know) Gary learnt all 27 of their names in about 10 minutes!! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending A-Star Sports – a truly professional company providing an excellent service. Thank you :-)

  259. Rhonda

    I would like to say a massive thank you to Kevin on behalf of staff and children at FAST OSC. Children had great fun and I would highly recommend you to other services :)

  260. Mandy Gardner

    My son attends A-Star Sports class every Tuesday and it’s the highlight of his week. He really enjoys all of the games and gets on fantastically with the teachers, who are great with the kids and really get to know all of them. A Star Sports is also his favourite for birthday parties and keeps the kids entertained throughout.

  261. Julie Flockhart

    Just wanted to say what a fabulous party my son, Robbie, and his friends had today. Dale was brilliant with them & they all had a great time. I would highly recommend your service to others.
    Thank you.

  262. Julie Flockhart

    My son attends A Star Sports every week & loves I thought one of their parties would be a great idea – how right I was! I organised a party for his 4th Birthday. Dale (Edinburgh) had 26 kids eating out his hand! He was great with them & they all had a ball! It was pitched perfectly for the 4 and 5 year lds there. It made my life easy – thank you! I would highly recommend your parties.

  263. Audrey Hand

    EAST DUNBARTONSHIRE – My 5 year old daughter has been going to A-Star Sports in Lenzie for almost 2 years now. We arranged for Callum to host her 4th birthday party and he made it really special. Tommy takes the Tuesday class and he is so good with the kids. My daughter loves A-Stars and she also does some of the classes in school when they are on too.

  264. Heather

    Would like to say a very big thank you to Adrian (Wrexham) for the party on Sunday. Harry and William had a fantastic time. Many parents commented on how much their children had enjoyed themselves.

    Many thanks

  265. Claire Perks

    I just wanted to thank you to Adrian (Wrexham) for Sunday – the kids really enjoyed it and the parents were very impressed (not to mention delighted that the kids would be tired out!).

    You did a really great job and put all of the kids at ease, I’d have no problem in recommending you to other people.

    Thanks again.

  266. Aileen Aitken

    My two daughters (aged 3 and 5) go to A-Star Sports in East Dunbartonshire. They love it! They think they are just having fun ‘throwing pancakes into frying pans’ (throwing bean bags into hoops), ‘racing motorbikes’ (rolling hoola hoops), ‘chasing mice’ (trapping tennis balls in cups), ‘dodging alien space ships’ (dodging foam frisbees) but they are actually learning all the basics of sports and techniques (balance, speed, coordination, aim, etc). Tommy and Callum are fantastic coaches who hold the attention of every child, capture their imagination and make exercise fun!! If you are in the area I would highly recommend you bring your kids along to join in the fun!!

  267. Ellie Nolan

    Just returned from a fantastic birthday party for my 7 year old son. Steven entertained 25 of his classmates brilliantly for the duration. It was fun, energetic and pitched just right. Thank you!!

  268. Joanne

    Kyle (Chester) was superb, he remembered all the children’s names within moments and ensured that everyone was included and enjoying themselves. My son had a great time and so did all his friends. Thanks so much!

  269. June White

    A great big thank you to Steven Cairney, who made my son’s 5th birthday in his words “awesome”! Ewan and his friends loved every minute. Steven is professional, energetic, enthusiastic, funny, encouraging and is brilliant at keeping the kids fully entertained for the entire duration. Most of all the kids loved him. I couldn’t recommend Steven and A-Star Sports highly enough.

  270. Dawn Kenyon

    A huge thank you to Adrian (Wrexham). Harrison had an amazing party as did all of his friends. The party was fun packed and very actively enjoyable. I would most definatly recommend :-)

  271. Pamela Paterson

    A big thank you to Steven who gave my boys a fantastic birthday party on the 18th January. It was the best, fully active, full of fun party I’ve ever seen. Kids leave the party shattered but full of smiles. The children all had fun and a week later are still talking about it. Anyone who is considering booking an A-Star Sports party won’t be disappointed. I’ll be doing it again.

  272. Gillian

    Thank you Steven (Dundee & Angus) for a super 4th birthday party! My son & his friends had a fantastic time … Stress free for me too!! Would definitely recommend it.

  273. Chris

    Just a note to say thank you very much for a great party on Saturday. Kyle (Chester) kept all the kids engaged and enthusiastic. We had a lot of enquiries from other parents as they also thought it was fantastic.

  274. Martin & Anne

    Thank you, Leo – our son’s 7th birthday party was fantastic. All 24 children had a wonderful time. We have had many comments back from parents saying how much their children enjoyed it – Fred “wanted to do it again”, Lucy said “it was the best party ever”. We couldn’t be happier with how the party went – lots of activities, lots of fun and lots of very happy children, which equals happy parents. Many thanks.

  275. Sarah-Jane Baldwin

    Big Thank You to Steven for a fantastic party for my daughter Alice who was 7. She absolutely loved it and all her friends had a great time. Even better – completely hassle free for me! Best party we have ever had. We hope to see Steven at my son’s birthday and with twins on the way for years to come!!!!

  276. kirstin crombie

    Thank you so much Steven for doing my son’s 5th birthday party..they all had a ball and I would def recommend him to any of my friends. A fantastic stress free party…thanks again.

  277. H

    Thanks to Steven Cairney (Dundee) for making our son Lewis’ 4th birthday a success. All of the kids (and parents) really enjoyed themselves, not to mention Lewis, who was very excited leading up to and during the party.

    Lewis continues to look forward to Steven’s weekly classes.

    Ross & Hollie

  278. Cate Nelson-Shaw

    Both my children have loved their A Star Sports classes in Edinburgh…they have fun, they have the chance to try so many different sports, learn great foundation skills, contribute to the class as part of a group and make new friends…it’s a fantastic activity made even better by the lovely coaches, Dale and Brian, who bring out the best in the children in a caring and considerate way – I would highly recommend A-Star Sports! Thank you for all you have done for the children :)

  279. Jacqueline Campbell

    Thanks to Brian (East Edinburgh) for an outstanding party for my 4 year old twins and their pals on Saturday. Kept them all entertained and me organised for 2 hours. Best option for a stress free party, lots of happy kids and parents!

  280. Emma Thompson (Llansilin)

    Thank you so much to Adrian (Wrexham) for Sunday’s party, Jack thoroughly enjoyed himself even though he was tired. Jack and all his friends have been talking about how good it was at school today.

  281. Rich (Great Sutton)

    Big thank you to Mark (Chester) for Hannah’s 4th birthday party. All 22 kids had a great time and really enjoyed all the games. Lots of good comments from the parents as well, some asking about the classes you run (they’ve been pointed in the direction of the website). All the kids looked worn out (good sign) and settled down for food with a real appetite. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again. (Hannah is already making plans for her big 5, and you’re on her list!!) All in all a great idea for a kids’ party and I’d thoroughly recommend it. Thanks again

  282. Robyn

    Thanks Steven (Dundee & Angus), this is our third A-Star Sports party. My daughter has had two and now my son has had one for his fourth birthday. Definitely stress-free for parents and the kids have a brilliant time!! Would definitely recommend!:)

  283. Colette

    A big thank you to Dale (Lothian) – my daughter and her friends all had a fantastic time at her party today. Very well organised and under control the whole time – he was absolutely brilliant with the kids! A most definite stress free party for parents, thank you!

  284. Lynsey

    My son Jack (3) absolutely loves A-Star Sports and I feel it is a great way for him to make new friends and have a great time. Callum is great with the kids and has so much patience with them.

  285. Andrea

    I would recommend Kyle to run a party without hesitation. He kept thirty 5 year olds plus older siblings totally under control, happy and engaged for 2 hours today. The kids loved him, the games were fast moving and everyone had a great time. Couldn’t have asked for more.

  286. David Vine

    A huge thank you to Kyle for entertaining close to 30 five year olds for an hour and a half! The kiddies loved it and the adults got a rare chance to stand back for once and also enjoy the day! Can’t recommend Kyle enough, a great guy with a fantastic attitude towards how a child’s special day should be celebrated! Thank you.

  287. Tonia Rutherford

    Thank you to Adrian (Wrexham) for such a great party today. The kids all really enjoyed it. One of our best parties ever I think. Hope your ears aren’t still ringing!!!

  288. Helen Clibery

    I would like to thank Gary (Chester) and his team for the A-Star classes at Hope Farm every week. Both my children have really enjoyed their time with you. Winning the trophy has been the highlight of some weeks. I have been pleased to see the way Josh has calmed down in the last 12 months, and going to your classes has helped with this. Sam has gone on to High School with a real love of PE, and his attending these classes has helped with this. Thanks again, Gary. Your ability to control the children, especially at parties is amazing, and how you remember the names is quite astounding! We’ll miss the classes, but Josh is ready to move on.

  289. sue allan

    A huge big thank you to Adrian for doing Max’s 6th birthday party. Everyone enjoyed it, the parents thought you were fabulous, the kids were worn out – which is always a good sign. Highly recommend you to anyone. Thanks again, Sue

  290. J Lowe

    I just wanted to thank you for our son’s party back on Sat 2 November in Cuddington. We thought that Kyle had a great manner with all the children and we were really impressed at how well lots of 3 year old boys concentrated! All the children were really engaged and had lots of fun. We will definitely recommend you to friends.

  291. Catherine

    Gary and Mark,
    Thank you very much for your fantastic classes. Both of my children have attended A-Star Sports and both not only enjoy but now achieve in sport. My daughter represents her school at hockey & is athletics captain and both children play hockey for their city/county. This wouldn’t have happened without the support, encouragement, fun environment and great skills of the A-Star team.
    keep in touch! Best wishes Catherine and family

  292. Victoria (Wrexham)

    HUGE thanks to Kyle for another fantastic party for my son, Charlie. (We booked him last year too!) Kyle can keep the attention of 20+ six and seven year olds for over an hour and a half…AMAZING. He is brilliant with the children – even walking around the circle in a game with the more shy members of the group. A wonderful time was had by all. =)

  293. A Millard

    I just wanted to say what a fantastic party Kyle (Chester) did for Darcey on Saturday. All the kids enjoyed themselves and about four mums said that they might join A-Star Sports class on a Friday with us. He really did do a great job at keeping 24 kids amused for over an hour and a half. Please pass on our thanks again to him and we will see him on Friday!

  294. Liz

    Thanks to Kyle (Chester and surrounding area) for doing such a brilliant job at Charlie’s party on Saturday. He somehow kept 29 very boisterous 4 and 5 year olds fully engaged, under control and having really great fun from start to end.

  295. Helen

    A very big thank you to Mark (Chester) for running such a great party for my daughter and her friend last week. All the children had a fantastic time. I was particular impressed with how Mark introduced himself to each child individually and memorised all their names! He also helped to set up and put things away at the end and the children loved him. I would definitely book A-Star Sports again and would recommend to friends.

  296. Claire

    A huge thank you to Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas), who ran Josh’s party in September. Kyle was very friendly and was fantastic with the kids (all 25 of them!). I was delighted with the contact I had before and during the party. Last week Mark ran another party for us and once again I was blown away with the way Mark held the kids’ attention and interest. I don’t know how they remember all the names! Really excellent, thanks again.

  297. Caroline McKevitt

    I just wanted to say thank you to Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) who hosted my little boy’s 5th birthday party last weekend, he was absolutely brilliant as were the activities! He kept 30 children from ages 4 – 8 occupied and attentive for over an hour and a half!
    I would highly recommend A-Star Sports for anyone planning a children’s party. Thank you!

  298. Laney and Martyn

    We would just like to say a HUGE Thank You to Richard (Chelt and Gloucester) for making Atlanta’s birthday party amazing. Lots of parents commented with positive feedback, Atlanta had a great time and so did all of her friends. Hats off to you Richard, 21 2-4 years olds! You did fantastic. Thank you once again for not just doing the sports party but going above and beyond and helping to set up and clear up etc. You really were a Star!!!

  299. Alex Vickers

    Mark was excellent at Aled’s party here on the Wirral. He learned all 30 names within 10 minutes of meeting the children, and kept them well under control whilst keeping the enjoyment levels high. The children never stopped running or smiling. Mark couldn’t do enough to help us with all aspects of the party – and even offered to come and help us in the kitchen! Recommendation without hesitation.

  300. Fiona Domville

    Thanks to Kyle for giving my daughter Emily the best party ever! The children had a brilliant time and were totally involved in the games the whole time. Kyle even managed to involve Emily’s little brother Sam who also had the best time! Would highly recommend A-Star Sports to any parents looking for a party entertainer. Emily and Sam were exhausted and very happy after the party.

  301. P Slater

    Just a quick thank you for a brilliant party run by Kyle (Chester) last Sunday. All the children had a great time and the parents loved the fact that they could look forward to a quiet day afterwards as the children would all be exhausted! A win win situation.

  302. Kevin Mccann

    Dylan and his friends had the best birthday party today thanks to A-Star Sports, Wrexham, Oswestry & Whitchurch and Adrian Dunn. Would highly recommend for anyone with kids

  303. joanne chadwick

    Thanks very much Adrian (Wrexham) for running Max’s party last weekend and especially for doing the extra bit when the kids had raced through their food quicker than expected! Several parents told me afterwards what a great time their children had had, and how nice it was to have done something a bit different. Thanks again!

  304. F Wheatcroft

    I wanted to thank Kyle (Chester) for giving my son, George and his friends such a wonderful party last Saturday. He worked so hard and they were all thoroughly engaged for the whole time.

    It was all very well prepared and organised, even down to the high fives and thank yous before hand washing, and it was lovely that Kyle stayed while the children had their food and cake.

    Please pass on our thanks and appreciation,

  305. M Llewellyn

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you. Mark (Chester) was just superb. He had a great rapport with the children and quickly learnt their names. I take my hat off to him controlling 24 children for all that time. He helped set up and put away, too – which was very helpful.

  306. Belinda Mortell

    I love it and so do my kids. My 3 year old and 5 year old have thoroughly enjoyed the classes, summer club and parties since we discovered A-Stars 18 months ago. The staff are all lovely and it is great that nearly all are male, which makes a change from all female primary school staff.

  307. Rachel Scotland

    Thank you, Adrian (Wrexham, Oswestry & Whitchurch), for supporting our Community Event at Plas Madoc. Really impressed by the way he included everyone and at one point had 18 young people of various ages playing and working together. Really impressed by Adrian’s ability with the children.

  308. K Tierney

    Just to say thanks so much for making holiday club (Chester) so much fun for Rachael and Patrick. They really enjoy themselves when they come to you and I love hearing about all the new sports they are learning! Patrick is learning that there is life outside football and Rachael discovered a liking for lacrosse!

  309. C Thomas

    Just wanted to say a massive thank-you to Kyle (Chester) for Jamie’s party last weekend. Jamie had a fab time and hasn’t stopped talking about it all week. All parents who attended were very impressed with the way Kyle was with the children, how he got them all involved and how after about 5 minutes knew every single child’s name. He even organised the children to sing Happy Birthday. I had one very happy little boy at the end of his party and would highly recommend your birthday parties to all parents. Thank you once again and see you in September.

  310. Lynn S-F

    Thank you to your whole team of coaches (Chester) for a fantastic holiday club from Monday 5th August-Friday 9th August. Oliver loved every minute of it and his enthusiasm for A-STAR SPORTS is still current topic of conversation with his friends and family.

  311. S Eland

    Bryn enjoyed the Summer club so much. As he’s only three, this was the longest period of time he’d ever been away from us, but he had a great time. Steven encourages all ages and abilities and Bryn was devastated when the club finished. He’s definitely keen for the Autumn term to start!

  312. Stuart family

    Fantastic activities. Perfect for lively, sporty children. Great coach with great child friendly approach. (Chester & surrounding areas)

  313. S Verhaeghe

    We have loved every minute of A-Star Sports classes and parties. We will sorely miss you now that we’re moving to Germany. Want to come and set up A-Star in Munich?

  314. J McManus

    Great variety of activities, well organised and children given the right amount of support, coaching, praise and encouragement!

  315. T Youens

    Fin has really enjoyed all the activities but especially looks forward to the game at the end of the session. I think it’s really age appropriate and hopefully will give Fin a lifelong love of sport.

  316. Williams family

    Jacob has really enjoyed the A-Star Sports classes. It is his favourite activity of the week. Gary is an inspirational teacher and has a fantastic rapport with the children.

  317. Z Allan

    Jacob has had another fabulous year at A-Star Sports. Both Gary and Kyle have encouraged Jacob to persevere at all sports. He has thoroughly enjoyed himself and is looking forward to starting again in September.

  318. Williams family

    Isaac has really enjoyed the variety of activities and this has kept him engaged throughout. It also ensures a range of different skills have been nurtured in him.

  319. Szawin family

    It’s a great session and Kyle really adapts to the age / ability of the children. Amelia looks forward to it every week.

  320. L Nash

    George has improved so much this year. He enjoys sports and talks a lot about it. Kyle is a fantastic coach – really appreciate all his work.

  321. K Taylor-Edwards

    Activities have really helped Evie’s confidence develop. Kyle is brilliant with the kids of all ages. Benji has enjoyed learning about all the different sports.

  322. K Bendon

    Joe started half way through the summer term. Kyle’s inclusive approach has really enables Joe to fit into the class and enjoy all the activities.

  323. Wyndham family

    My son’s balance and co-ordination have really improved since starting classes. He looks forward to Monday afternoons.

  324. J Edgerley

    Kate has really enjoyed this year. She has enjoyed trying different sports. Kyle is enthusiastic and we have definitely noticed a big improvement in Kate at sports day this year. Thanks again!

  325. J Edgerley

    Another excellent year. Kyle works so hard; great at getting them engaged in the activities, especially listening skills. Thanks!

  326. B Jones

    This is a fabulous class and is a definite favourite! Kyle has the patience of a saint and Celt is looking forward to coming back after the summer.

  327. Jones family

    A-Star Sports has really helped Adam improve his confidence and he is learning to enjoy a range of sports. Kyle has a great way of bringing the best out of his pupils!

  328. C Thomas

    Bamba has waited for years to join a class! He is already loving it and is sorry the class doesn’t continue over the summer!

  329. R Niestroj

    Absolutely brilliant. Thomas is always keen to go to classes and loves it. Gary has helped Thomas enormously and Thomas’ confidence and concentration is improving no end – thank you so much! (Chester & surrounding areas)

  330. A Fletcher

    All the coaches from A-Star Sports are enthusiastic, outstanding, great with instructions and letting the children understand rules of games. Lots of new skills learnt from throwing and catching to fun games at the end to unwind. Love the trophy, too.

  331. K Farren

    Kyle has so much energy and enthusiasm for every child at every class. Our 4 year old son loves A-Star Sports and it really is the highlight of his week! (Tarporley)

  332. M Gaskarth

    We’ve had an ace time over the last couple of terms. It’s just a shame that my work pattern has changed and we can’t make Fridays. Many thanks for the great variety and Kyle’s great approach and rapport with the class!

  333. L Ebbage

    Charlotte has thoroughly enjoyed the A-Star Sports experience. It has given her lots of confidence in PE classes at school as she’s practised many sports already at A-Star. The staff (Chester) have been wonderfully friendly and encouraging and above all fun. Thank you, A-Star team!

  334. L Ebbage

    Emily has loved A-Star Sports – particularly Kyle (Chester)! Kyle creates a fun but controlled atmosphere which makes for brilliant classes. Keep up the good work!

  335. N Franklin

    Gary (Chester) is brilliant at putting kids at ease. He copes with my son very well as he is not always easy to deal with.

  336. O'Reilly family

    Erin has loved the classes, all the laughter and fun which she has enjoyed at her class. Giving her confidence, learning new skills. Balancing has improved. Very enjoyable. Great class. (Chester)

  337. L Gibson

    Since starting A-Star Sports Anna’s physical skills and, more importantly, her confidence have increased so much – not only in sport but all areas. Anna may not be ‘naturally sporty’ but, thanks to Gary (Chester), I think she has found a love for sport which will hopefully continue throughout life. Thank you, Gary!

  338. Smith family

    Absolutely fantastic. Couldn’t believe how quickly my daughter slotted in to the class. Gary (Chester) is absolutely fabulous with the children – always encouraging and positive with all of them. Thank you so much for teaching her in such a fun, enjoyable manner.

  339. J Head

    Maisie has loved every minute of her A-Star Sports club this year. Mark (Chester) is very friendly and caring whilst being helpful and fair at all times. Thanks, Mark!

  340. D Green

    Bethany says that A-Star Sports is fun, active and great. I have no hesitation in signing Bethany up for next year’s class. A great team (Chester & surrounding areas). Thank you.

  341. S Munnely

    With my son having a few problems we found Gary (Chester) to be very patient and understanding. Even though my son doesn’t always listen, Gary always keeps his attention and keeps him involved – he loves coming to class so a big thank you to Gary and all at A-Star Sports.

  342. Grimshaw family

    My boy and girl twins (aged 3) absolutely love Gary’s sports classes (Chester) and I have noticed a huge difference in their level of ability with regard to co-ordination, using simple sports equipment and also listening skills and following simple instructions! The classes are excellent.

  343. M Scott

    Oliver has enjoyed his A-Star Sports classes very much; the variety of activities and general happy and positive atmosphere are great! (Chester)

  344. J & S Scheuber

    Jasper has really enjoyed the classes and has grown in confidence since joining. Thanks to Gary and his hard work (Chester & surrounding areas).

  345. D Broadhurst

    Great team activities this year – it’s been fun to watch the children develop. Jack is getting more confident and enjoys this class so much. See you in September! (Chester & surrounding areas)

  346. K Hover

    Finlay’s confidence has grown a lot since starting A-Star Sports and it is his favourite after school activity. I think it’s important that he gets to practise a wide range of skills and different sports with the emphasis on having fun. (Chester & surrounding areas)

  347. L Rawlinson

    We really enjoy A-Star Sports and our son Alex loves coming every week and, despite the fact that he is younger than the others in his class (Penyffordd) , he has been welcomed by all. Steve is an excellent coach and treats all the children with respect and encouragement. Thanks a lot!

  348. G McGrillis

    The activities have been varied and engaging – can’t think how you could improve them! Joe loves his Monday afternoon session – thanks! (Chester & surrounding areas)

  349. Smith family

    Millie and Lola have really enjoyed their half term with Kyle. As a parent of identical twins I’m pleased that Kyle doesn’t always pair them together and recognises them as individuals (many people don’t!)

  350. K Whiteman

    Kyle has an amazing ability to engage my son and his friends. He has a firm but very friendly approach to teaching and obviously loves what he does.

  351. K Perry

    Too many good things to say about A-Star Sports (Kelsall) – it’s great to see them progress and the structure of the lessons as they move up a class. Kyle is an amazing coach – enthusiastic, funny and the children just love to be around him. Please can we have him to come and work at our pre-school! Would love to see him coach netball :)

  352. L Hall

    Brilliant class (Gresford) – Kyle is a fab teacher and good at holding children’s attention when their minds start wandering!

  353. Hall family

    Tilly has really enjoyed coming to Kyle’s class (Gresford). He is a brilliant teacher and knows how to get the best out of the kids.

  354. Pugh family

    Great fun, keeps George interested and looking forward to coming back each week to learn new skills whilst having fun with friends (Gresford).

  355. A Murphy

    Joe has enjoyed A-Star Sports and learnt a lot of new skills. He often demonstrates things Gary has taught him when playing in the garden! Gary has a lovely way with all of the children and I know Joe has become very fond of him. I am sure Jack will want to join you when he is older!

  356. C Scaiff

    A great mix of activities, good to see the children participating in team games but also individual skills. It sets them up for starting school I think. (Chester & surrounding areas)

  357. C Scaiff

    A very good mix of activities; the short length of each activity and fast pace is perfectly suited to this young group who have limited attention spans!! Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) is excellent at motivating and reining in stragglers and has admirable levels of patience. Many thanks and see you in September.

  358. Crowdon family

    These classes (Heswall) have been fantastic for my son’s confidence in sport. The small class format has really benefited him. I particularly like the range of sports they are introduced to. Big thank you!!

  359. Kendrick family

    Dylan has really enjoyed coming to sports club (Chester & surrounding areas) and he will miss it in the summer. Steve has been brilliant and Dylan is looking forward to starting again in September.

  360. Julia (aged 10)

    I have been going to Gary’s classes (Chester & surrounding areas) since I was 3, and I have always enjoyed them. I love the variety of sports and my favourites are probably football and dodgeball.

  361. M Davies

    Just a short note to say a BIG THANK YOU to Kyle and Adrian for running Anna’s 4th birthday party.

    We were lucky to get 2 coaches – Kyle and Adrian were great with the 3 and 4 year olds and all 18 of the children felt comfortable and included in all games……I’ve never seen so many smiling faces.

    I will definitely be booking more A-Star Sports parties over the coming years.

  362. Lynne Sykes

    Thanks to Gary for doing a brilliant job of entertaining 16 lively 3, 4 and 5 year olds at our daughter’s 4th birthday party last weekend.

    The activities were pitched perfectly to engage all of the children for an hour and a half. They had a fantastic time – by the end of the afternoon they were exhausted from running around and laughing so much.

    And Gary made life so easy for us as ‘hosts’ – lining the kids up to come to the table, helping rally the singing after the cake-cutting and even distributing the party bags.

    An A-Star Sports party is active and fun but it is also highly professional. Our daughter had a fantastic time and it was worth every penny.

  363. Sue Liddon

    I booked Steven (Dundee and Angus) for my son Charlie’s 5th birthday party. He attends weekly classes and really enjoys them. On the day, the party was a resounding success and relatively low stress. Charlie had a big group of friends attending and Steven managed the children brilliantly and with seemingly comparative ease! Throughout, the games were varied and held the children’s attention, as well as capturing their imaginations! All children left happy but tired. Everyone had a great time, including the adults!

  364. Laurie Williams

    We have just had my son’s 6th birthday party given by Kyle (Chester area). It was fantastic – Kyle did a brilliant job and kept everyone entertained with so much energy. He got the kids all involved and they had a great time. Would highly recommend – thank you so much Kyle!!!!

  365. Kelly Rossington

    Had two amazing coaches for my daughter’s 5th birthday party. They entertained the children for a solid hour and a half, not requiring parents to supervise (which was a nice break). They helped encourage all 35 children to participate and the games played were suitable for all ages attending the party. All the parents were so impressed how they controlled their children so well, in a fun and friendly manner. I would not hesitate to recommend A-Star Sports for any occasion where children need entertaining in a happy and fun way.

  366. Elaine Proudfoot

    Alister Ramm (Edinburgh) entertained a group of 22 children for our daughter’s fifth birthday party. He made a huge effort to welcome all the children and learn their names. He was fun, energetic and kept them all under control throughout the party with structured play and games. Lots of jokes, giggles and smiley faces all afternoon. He definitely earned his fee! Would highly recommend this for a kids’ party.

  367. Bill Massey

    I have never seen kids AND parents have so much fun at a birthday party. The laughter on the faces of the parents as well as the kids said it all. How Gary (Chester) kept good order whilst generating so much pleasure and enjoyment is a testimony to his skill. Nothing was left to chance even down to the hand wash gel before eating.
    Thanks for a great afternoon (Max Tracy’s Granddad).

  368. C Thornton

    Sharon (Chester area) did a great job with our 5 year old’s party. So much energy, so much fun, all the kids responded to her and lots came to tell me how much they had enjoyed the afternoon.

  369. E Brooker

    Thanks for today’s party. Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) was brilliant and the children had a fab time. Lots of the mums complemented him, too!

  370. J Williams

    Steve (Chester & surrounding areas) did a brilliant party this afternoon! The control of the children amazes me and I have had many positive remarks on a wonderful party, so thank you. Most importantly, the birthday boy said it was ‘the best’!

  371. Jodie Hogg

    Steven in Dundee just held a sports party for my son’s 4th birthday party. Great time had by all, kept all the kids in line but while Having fun! Definitely recommended.

  372. Lisa Eadie

    Gary slater (Perth and Kinross) just gave my son a brilliant 6th birthday party. 20 children kept thoroughly entertained through various games. First experience of a party like this and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Awesome. Thankyou!!!

  373. Anna Moss

    Thank you Steven for a fantastic 4th birthday party! Everything ran so smoothly with your help, and best of all they had a brilliant time! I would strongly recommend choosing this as a birthday idea (Tayport, Fife).

  374. Lynsey Fraser

    Steven Cairney (Dundee & Angus) kept my Son and his friends entertained today at my son’s 6th Birthday Party. There were some children a little reluctant to join in, but Steven was great and encouraged them to participate. All the children really enjoyed the party and I would definitely recommend Steven to anyone looking for ideas for a children’s party. Thanks again, Steven!

  375. Angela Khaleeli

    Alister Ramm (Edinburgh) entertained a group of 35 five and six year olds at my son’s 6th birthday party yesterday. To say he was wonderful is an understatement, he had the excited bunch eating out the palms of his hands and they all had a fantastic time. The party was completely stress free and everyone went home with a big smile on their faces. I would not hesitate to book another A-Star Sports party and would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks again, Alister!

  376. Richard Kelly

    My son attends a weekly session in Perth. He loves it. We had an A-Star Sports party for his 5th birthday. Everyone who has seen the photos from the party cannot believe how engaged and enthused the kids look. Five year olds in a sports hall normally = chaos, but not this time. A great concept that deserves all the support it can get.

  377. Julie Reid

    Dale was fantastic (Edinburgh). He kept a group of 5 and 6 year olds entertained for the whole session, getting them to work together and they had tremendous fun. One of the Mums at the party then asked for booking details for A-Star Sports she was so impressed with the whole thing. Great party (our third!), thanks again.

  378. A Harrison

    Will really enjoys A-Star Sports. In fact, he seems to talk about it all the time, with us having to tell him how many sleeps it is until the next session. (Chester & surrounding areas)

  379. S Fletcher

    This sports group enables my child to attempt and learn more sports; gives loads of confidence, too. He enjoys every weekly session. (Chester & surrounding areas)

  380. R Niestroj

    Thomas just loves A-Star Sports and is hoping that he will be allowed to continue in September even though he will be older than 10!!! (Chester & surrounding areas)

  381. G Roberts

    It’s fantastic – Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) is great at engaging Adam in classes and encouraging him with his colours and numbers etc.

  382. K Taylor-Edwards

    Both Benji and Evie love the classes. Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) is fantastic with children of all ages. He is able to motivate the children and inspire enthusiasm in a structured and caring environment.

  383. Steph

    Thanks for a super party. The kids had so much fun and are still raving about it now. All the parents I spoke to were very impressed with how Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) got all the kids to focus for so long and how brilliant he is at remembering names. Thanks again.

  384. A Cowan Sinclair

    My little boy had great fun today. A-Star Sports were out at his nursery. It’s a fab idea and good luck with it all in the future. We will definitely sign up for more classes. Well done x

  385. A Worth

    Lynne and I thought Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) did a fab job at the party. The children all loved it and lots of parents said how great it was. We gave your leaflets out in all the party bags!

  386. L Smith

    Big thank you to Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas) for running my daughter’s fun, energetic, well organised A-Star sports party. It was fantastic, all her friends loved it and many parents commented on how good Sharon was at keeping the children engaged and under control for so long! A great idea for a birthday party, and perfect for getting children involved in keeping fit and staying healthy. Hope to see local classes in this area soon !

  387. L Nash

    William has improved so much this year. His understanding of the various games is so much better. He enjoys attending classes. Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) is a fantastic coach. Boys love him! We’ll be upset when William is too old to attend.

  388. A Edwards

    Josh thoroughly enjoys coming to A-Star Sports (Chester & surrounding areas). In addition to the fine and gross motor skills he has learnt and refined each week, he has also learnt skills like waiting in line and sharing. Thank you.

  389. J Edgerley

    George’s listening skills have improved thanks to A-Star Sports. Excellent variety of sports and games. Excellent organisation and progressive skills. George has made some good friends, too. Thanks for the excellent sessions (Chester & surrounding areas).

  390. J Edgerley

    The girls have really enjoyed their lessons. It has been really good as a parent to see progression from the start of the year. Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) has been excellent!

  391. J Webb

    Jake and Hugh had a great party yesterday, massive thanks to Kyle (Chester) – he was fantastic, everyone was saying how fab he was with the children. There were over thirty kids so it was a big party, well done that man!

  392. Sheena Mitchell

    A huge thanks to Gary (Perth & Kinross) for Anna’s 5th Birthday party on Saturday. Kept 18 kids fully entertained, in rather freezing conditions, but carried on regardless. Would highly recommend Gary for a party.

  393. Lisa C

    Gary (Perth & Kinross) thank you very much for yesterday. The party was fab, the kids had a brilliant time. I especially liked how quickly you were able to get the children involved in the games, even the quieter ones. Thank you.

  394. Naomi Clarke

    I would just like to say a huge thank you for the fantastic entertainment at my son’s birthday party on the 9th March in Perthshire. I was very nervous about the party, having invited both of their classes and expecting around 40 children! However, I was amazed at how instantly involved the kids became in the games. They listened to everything that Gary said and they had an absolute blast running around. There were no prizes or competitions so no tears and they all sat down perfectly for their snacks as they were ready for a rest, which was great and made it so much easier. They were really eager for more games after their food and thoroughly enjoyed every last minute of it. I have already been recommending A-Star sports and Gary to others in the area, just brilliant!

  395. Tony & Seonaid

    Our daughter has attended a number of parties run by Gary (Perth & Kinross) and she was most insistent that he ran her 4th birthday party! All of the kids had a great time. Lots of fun and games. Excellent effort! Thoroughly recommended.

  396. Val Fenton

    Big Thank You to Gary ( Perth & Kinross) who came along to Letham Village hall (Fife) and kept a room full of kids brilliantly entertained for Logan’s 8th Birthday. All kids really enjoy their afternoon. Thanks again, Gary.

  397. G Ponton

    Thanks to Gary Slater (Perth & Kinross / East Fife) who entertained a hall full of screaming 5 & 6 year olds for my son Joe’s birthday party. Excellent time was had by all. Top man Gary!

  398. Fiona

    A big thank you to Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) for entertaining 27 children at the joint 5th birthday party for our son and his friend at the weekend. The party was brilliant, went very smoothly and all the children enjoyed themselves. Mark is a fantastic host and it was amazing that he remembered all the names of the children. Thank you again Mark and I certainly recommend an A-Star Sports party.

  399. Clare Jones

    Adam and Finn had an amazing A-Star Sports party, courtesy of Steve and Kyle (Chester) – a huge thank you to both of you for engaging all the children with a superb variety of games and activities – we were delighted with your very professional service which was especially appreciated by all the kids (who were pleasantly exhausted after racing, jumping, shaking parachutes, playing games etc etc for 90 mins!). We also received many positive comments from the parents who stayed to watch the fun! A-Star Sports made a 5-year-olds’ party a stress-free event…something I could never have imagined! Thanks again – it was outstanding!

  400. S Hamilton

    Thank you to A-Star Sports for running three sessions at the WAGs Spring Coffee Morning at Greenbank Church yesterday. Dale was amazing and all the kids (over 36) loved it. We have raised nearly £1,000 for our two Edinburgh based charities ‘It’s Good to Give’ and ‘Tailor Ed Foundation’. Brilliant stuff. Thank you, A-Star Sports.

  401. Lisa O'Hare (Perth & Kinross)

    I’m sure everyone knows how good A-Star Sports is but I’d like to pass on my recommendation for his parties – excellent time had by 21 kids. Worth every penny and I have one very happy 4 year old :) Thanks Gary Slater (Perth & Kinross), you do a fab job!

  402. Susan and Derek

    Thanks again for a fab 6th birthday party for Duncan. You could tell by the looks on the childrens faces that they were loving every minute. It still amazes us that you can get their attention and learn their names so quickly! Would highly recommend!

  403. Lucy & Scott Davidson

    A massive thanks to Gary (Perth & Kinross) for doing Ashley’s birthday party again this year! All the kids had an amazing time and I have had many compliments from parents at the school gate this morning! Gary you are a complete professional and have a fantastic rapport with kids! I can’t recommend enough. Thanks again.

  404. Victoria

    Just to say a big thank you to Steve (Chester) for my son’s 7th birthday. All the kids had a great time & really enjoyed all the games. A particular favourite was crab football! Steve kept them all entertained & it was just what we were looking for. It all ran very smoothly & I would highly recommend. Thank you again.

  405. Nick & Julie

    HUGE thanks to Dale (Edinburgh) for a great 4th birthday party for Lara. She loved it, her friends loved it and all the parents were impressed with the format and how totally engaged the kids were throughout.

    Big thumbs-up.

  406. Gael

    Big thanks to Dale (Edinburgh & surrounding areas) for a great party for our 5 year old son. He kept everyone entertained and active – kids loved it. Highly recommended!

  407. Lynne Gray

    Thank you very much Gary (Perth & Kinross) for Euan’s brilliant party this afternoon. He had a great time – as did his friends, judging by the messages I’ve had.

  408. L Tagg

    Ella had a great time today at St Margaret’s Hall (Wrexham). Thank You! She even played some of the games when she got home! Fantastic children’s sports club!

  409. Catherine Slater

    Many thanks to Kevin for a fantastic party. Every seven year old should have an A-Star Sports party. It was the most fun I’ve ever seen children having at a party from start to finish. Great great job, Kevin. Thank you!

  410. Jill

    Massive thank you to Steven (Dundee) for a great party. All 20 kids were thoroughly entertained and totally engaged for the whole party. Steven was totally professional and could not have been more helpful. A-Star Sports parties would get a 100% recommendation from me. Thanks again.

  411. Helen

    Thanks to Gary (Chester) for 2 fantastic parties. All children (girls and boys) had a fabulous time, good variety and age appropriate activities. Gary has an amazing ability to remember all children’s names and keeps all interested. As the host parent it couldn’t be better. We have been to other parties run on a similar idea, but not nearly as good as Gary’s!! Will be booking again!

  412. N Cottle

    An enormous thank you again for a fantastic party. My eldest son said it was ‘brilliant’ and ‘Sharon is so much fun’ (Chester & surrounding areas). Fin said ‘she always remembered everyone and that it was my birthday’ and my daughter said ‘everyone gets a turn’, so you can safely say that they are huge fans of yours. May have to enquire about Easter holiday club!

  413. Sally Drysdale

    Thank you to A-Star Sports for a great party for my little girl’s 5th birthday; kids all had a ball and Simon (Perth & Kinross) was great with them all.

  414. Mark and Caroline

    Huge thanks to Mark from A-Star Sports (Chester). Tom had a fantastic birthday and Mark was outstanding with all the kids, many of whom have said it was the best party they have ever been to! That is down to Mark’s skill in including everyone while still making sure Tom was centre of attention at the same time. Thanks Mark, looking forward to the next one!

  415. Stephen Gardner

    Can I just thank Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) for an excellent party on Saturday at Waverton village hall for my son Charlie. The whole event was made stress free by Mark’s professional and relaxed approach, with 26 children aged four and with a couple of younger ones for good measure. He is a credit to A-Star Sports. The children loved the games and the parents were amazed at the behaviour of 26+ children. Mark quickly learned all names of the children making sure they were all involved throughout the event. Thank you again, will be sure to use Mark in the future.

  416. Sarah Louise Muir

    Just like to say a huge thank you to Gary (Perth & Kinross) for doing my son’s party today in bridge of earn!! They had a brilliant time and Gary kept them entertained and the kids loved it!! Cannot recommend him enough!! Made a 5 year old very, very happy!! x

  417. L Lynch

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!! Amazing party, everyone had so much fun. Isaac loved every moment of it, felt very special and was very sad that it was over! Megan has said that she definitely wants one for her next birthday!

    Everyone has commented that Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) is an absolute star with the children, quite simply amazing.

    I really hope you manage to find a venue in Frodsham for classes. I know all 3 of mine would want to come. I will have to see if I can get to any of your others in the meantime.

    Once again, thank you so much for making the party so great and easy! You are a pleasure to deal with.

  418. H Howard

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) for Joshua’s party on Sunday. He did a fantastic job and the boys all adored him. Joshua is already planning his birthday party for next year!!

  419. Robin

    A great experience from beginning to end. From first call the organisation was efficiently handled by Lorna and Alister. On the day, Alister gave pre-party help and advice in a friendly and confident manner. The children were kept well entertained throughout, with a good balance of fun, silliness and order. Would happily recommend A-Star Sports parties.

  420. Allison

    A massive thank you to Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) for running such a fab 6th birthday party for Archie and Charlie. They had an amazing time. Kyle did a great job of learning the children’s names and organising 30+ children so well – they were busy for an hour and a half with so many different activies. The children had so much fun and the parents who stayed were asking which company he worked for. Even our 1 year old daughter wanted to join in!
    Thanks also to Sharon – you were easy to liaise with and responded to emails so quickly. Thank you. I would highly recommend an A-Star party!

  421. Guilden Sutton Pre-School

    Big thanks to Gary and Sharon (Chester) for their generosity and support in coming to the Preschool yesterday and doing a fantastic coaching session with the Children as part of their community support programme. It was energetic, noisy and great fun!! We sent home a lot of tired children yesterday – think they all slept well!

  422. Craigie Park Nursery

    We are orginal customers of Gary (Perth), and he has always provided excellent classes which he has adapted over the years to meet the children’s needs in the current groups. He now has a young helper Simon who is showing real promise and under Gary’s guidance he is developing confidence and a good understanding of the pre 5 age group. It is wonderful having access to this resource, which is lead by a nurturing male role model. Even when the children move on to big school they speak with great respect about Gary and the fun they had in his classes.

  423. Kelly Cobb

    Massive “Thank You!!!” to Gary and Simon (Kinross) for an utterly brilliant Toddlers Christmas party! The kids had an absolutely amazing time, even the most timid and shy little ones in our group came out of their shells very quickly and joined in with all the games. Shining, beaming wee faces all round!…and we got a surprise special visitor which topped off the morning for the kids! Cannot recommend Gary enough to anyone who will listen, both my kids go to his classes and LOVE it!!

  424. Gemma

    Thank you to A-Star Sports (Chester) for giving Harrison a fantastic 5th birthday party. Kyle was excellent – the children listened to him and they enjoyed themselves immensely. The games were imaginative and engaged the children (from ages 3-5 years) for near on 2 hours. Amazing! Would highly recommend.

  425. Paula & Bruce

    A huge thanks to Alister (Edinburgh North & West) for a fab party for our son’s 6th birthday. He had a great time as did all his friends. We were hugely impressed with how Alister commanded their attention and kept them focused. We would definitely recommend an A-Star party !!

  426. Kevin Petrie

    Thanks to Gary (Perth & Kinross) our wee boy had a fun packed 6th Birthday party. He already loves the weekly sessions so you can imagine just how much of a good time he, and 20+ of his friends & school chums, had over 2hrs! It was a pleasure to see so many kids engrossed, enagaged and having fun. All the kids left exhausted but with a smile. Great job, Gary.

  427. Rachael Watson

    Thanks to Alister (Edinburgh) for a fantastic birthday party for William and for the ongoing enthusiasm and fun at the weekly classes. My 3 (now 4) year old tried another type of ball sports class last year prior to trying A-Star Sports; he really didn’t like the first one; felt much more like a classroom; but adores A-Star. I would (and have) highly recommend A-Star Sports to all William’s friends!

  428. Rachael Banks

    My son and his friends had a fantstic 5th birthday party run by Dale (Edinburgh) yesterday! I have had so many comments from parents saying how well run the party was and how their kids had so much fun. Dale really engaged the children and activities were pitched at their level perfectly. He even managed to involve some of the grown-ups! I would highly recommend an A-Star Sports party.

  429. Jane

    Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous birthday party my son had on Saturday. Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) was absolutely great and many of the parents who stayed for the party were impressed at Mark’s ability to remember names and keep nearly 30 children fully occupied for the whole of the party. I did tell Mark he was great! Thanks again xx

  430. Emma

    Alister (Edinburgh North, West & surrounding areas) – just to let you know that the girls LOVED the class today! I have never seen them so excited about anything!!

  431. Fiona (Perth)

    Gary (Perth & Kinross) – thank you for a fantastic party, one very happy birthday boy and lots of texts from really impressed parents. Thanks again….

  432. John and Janice Milligan

    Our son has had a fantastic time with Alister (Edinburgh) and has loved every minute of it. The opportunity to try a variety of sports has been invaluable to him. His favourite game is tennis and he is really starting to blossom at it. He practises out the back of our house every day hitting the balls off the wall. I’m sure the time spent with Alister has been a big help in getting him to work out what his favouite sports are.

  433. Clare

    Thanks to Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) for organising Oliver’s 5th party today. When he went to sleep tonight he said: “Thank you Mummy for the best birthday ever!”, when I asked him what the best bit was he said all the games and Gary! Great work, highly recommend. Thank you.

  434. Sue Liddon

    A huge thank you to Steven Cairney and all his Christmas helpers for the Christmas A-Star Sports holiday club today (Broughty Ferry). Charlie (4) had a terrific time and has come home full of chat about his experience. It helped me considerably in the knowledge that Charlie was fully occupied so I could get the last bits and bobs for Christmas sorted. Steven always goes the extra mile in helping and supporting both kids and parents – his support with Charlie this year is hugely appreciated – and Charlie has been positively responsive!

  435. J Slaughter

    Our daughter Holly had a fantastic party today and a lot of that was down to Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas). The children loved him and the games he played and he was brilliant with them. He really made the party a success (and a lot easier for me!).

  436. Linda Hartmann

    A huge thank you to Gary (Perth and Kinross) for a fantastic party for Rory (5). I can’t believe how easy it all was and all of the kids from tiny to older were included and had a brilliant time. The parents even got time for a chat and a cuppa!!!

  437. Rachel Mitchell

    Thank you Gary, Archie our 6 year old and his friends had a great Party this weekend!! (Luncarty, Perth) It would have been tough to keep 20 kids entertained for 2hrs but you had them engaged and running around the whole time. They were all exhausted but very happy by the end!!! Thanks Again!

  438. Leanne

    THANK YOU GARY (Chester). Harriet had a fabulous A-Star Sports birthday party. I was totally impressed at how well Gary maintained the children’s attention and kept them entertained and happy for nearly two hours. You made the party stress free and we’re all very grateful for that. If only I could have so much control over two children as you had over 35!! Would highly recommend.

  439. Emma Walker

    What a brilliant party we had today for my son’s 5th birthday party; Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) was brilliant, keeping everyone motivated and involved, remembering every child’s name, putting the parents at ease too so they could just relax and watch. Perfect party. We love the weekly classes too, my son’s confidence in sport is noticeable every week and he talks about Mark and A-Star all of the time. We have tried various children’s sports classes and never got past 3 classes without my son’s interest being lost and me questioning what I was spending my money on…so a huge thank you from one happy mum!

  440. Yvonne

    Thank you, again (Chester and surrounding areas). Stress-free amazing party. Everybody, including the parents, had a fabulous fun-filled time. Mark remembered all the children’s names. Sharon and Gary helped to find a fabulous venue at the county sports club. I have always had a first class service from these lovely people.

  441. Louisa Grotrian

    A huge thank you to Alister (Edinburgh) for a fantastic party for my four year old son Adam. Without exception all the children loved it, and according to the nursery are still talking about it two days later! Alister had an excellent rapport with all the kids and I would recommend him without hesitation. Thank you again.

  442. Dr Monika Rashid

    Dale (Edinburgh) entertained 35 children at my 4 year old son’s birthday party. My son had a brilliant time. They played all sorts of games with a variety of different sports equipment. Dale was fantastic with the kids. He showed great care and patience with all of them. He recognises the shy ones and the distracted ones but still manages to keep them all focused and included while still showing them a great time. I didn’t need to worry about anyone. I have only good things to say about A-Star Sports and a BIG thank you to Dale who made the day perfect.

  443. Robert Allan

    Thank you very much to Gary (Perth & kinross) for giving my son Grant the best birthday party, there was a wide age range of kids & everyone of them had a great time. Thank you.

  444. Wardie Nursery

    Wardie Nursery welcomed A-Star Sports into the nursery for weekly sports classes. Since Dale (Edinburgh North West) joined us the children have taken part in a range of sports, they have an improved knowledgeable attitude towards exercise and how it makes them feel. They are able to take turns and are keen to try new things. Dale has an excellent rapport with the children and they love Thursdays because they know Dale is coming in. We thank Dale and A-Star Sports for the enjoyment they bring into the nursery on a weekly basis.

  445. Caroline G

    Huge thanks to the superb Gary Slater (Perth/Kinross) for a fabulous party yesterday for my son’s 5th birthday. All 18 of the kids had a fantastic time, all were included and it made our day very easy indeed. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

  446. Michelle

    Big thanks to Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) who did a fantastic job for my son’s 4th birthday party. Kept all the kids fully entertained, I’ve never seen such a big group of kids with full attention and focus. Definitely recommend to anyone holding a party, completely stress free for parents and amazing how Mark remembered all of their names, just fab. We will be in touch for the next one for sure – worth every penny. Thank you.

  447. Gillian Grigor

    After going to classes for over a year, Ben finally came home with an A-Star Sports trophy for a week. Some things are worth waiting for. He once had to ‘sit out’ for a while for being a bit too active (i.e not listening) with his mates. It had a big impact on him so today he’s ecstatic, loves Alister ( Edinburgh) and has been working really hard to ‘be recognised’. We like and support this approach!

  448. Ashleigh McKay

    Had a great party with Gemma. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Might have another sports party for my younger one when the time comes!!

  449. Nicola

    I would like to say how much my son Grant loves going to A-Star Sports with Gary (Perth & Kinross). It’s the only activity that he goes to without any complaints, Gary has so much time & patience for the kids & has really helped to make my son more confident. Thank you.

  450. Morven Clark

    Thanks to Gary in Kinross for Gus’s party. All the children had a great time. Gus is now 4 and really looks forward to his weekly A-Stars.

  451. L Barker

    Just wanted to let you know that Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) did our son’s joint 6th birthday party last Sunday at Tarvin Community Centre and he was Brilliant!!!!! From the moment he arrived he entertained all of the children. He was polite, professional and great fun. He involved all of the children of every age and arranged a wide range of games that appealed to them all. We couldn’t fault Kyle on any level and we will of course be recommending him and A-Star Sports to anyone and everyone! Thank you for making our son’s party a special one.

  452. A & S Evanson

    Hi A-Star, just a quick message to say thanks to Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) for the great job he did for our son’s party Dom on Saturday in Barnton. All the parents were amazed at how he had them eating out of the palm of his hand!!! Cheers Kyle and good luck in the future.

  453. S Munnelly

    Review from http://www.freeindex.co.uk: My son has been doing A-Star Sports for about a year now and he loves it. I wanted a club for him but didn’t know what. A-Star Sports ticks all the boxes as it’s a mixture of everything. Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) is absolutely brilliant with the kids, he is firm but kind and with my son not being the best at listening and doing as he is told Gary knows what to say and do so they all join in and listen. I couldn’t complement Gary and A-Star Sports highly enough!!

  454. Marion Richardson

    Just wanted to say thank you Alister (Edinburgh North and West) for all the fun and learning you’ve given James and David over the year in your classes.Thank you for your patience with them and for bringing them on so much in their confidence and “taking part skills”! You are a fabulous coach and a very rare find! Thanks again.

  455. Sarah Rankin

    Thank you to Gary (Perth & Kinross) for a brilliant party for my 7 year old who had a fantastic time! He was great with the kids, they loved the games and Gary made this the most stress-free children’s party I’ve ever had! Highly recommended!!

  456. Heather Campbell

    Thank you very much to Gary (Perth & Kinross). At the party the kids were aged 5/6; 35 in total. Gary made it a stress free afternoon. I would highly recommend using Gary to anyone. A five star party, thanks again.

  457. N Wright

    Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) did an amazing job on Felix’s birthday. He was fantastic with 20 unruly 4 / 5 year olds and his ability to remember all their names was truly astounding!

  458. Fiona Owen

    We booked A Star Sports for our toddler group and the kids had a fantastic time. I was amazed at how Gemma managed to keep all the children entertained for so long with a few balls and beanbags. She was amazing and we will definitely be booking another session soon.

  459. K Whitley

    My 5 year old daughter cannot wait for class tomorrow in Wrexham. She had so much fun at dodgeball last week and it was absolutely brilliant to watch the children enjoying themselves and developing in confidence as we watched!

  460. M Galt

    Thanks for everything yesterday, Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas). James loved his party and we had some great feedback from the other children and their parents :)

  461. Rachel Owen

    Wow – what a fabulous party! Thank you, Gary! (Chester and surrounding areas). We had 25 or so 4 year olds with a few younger and older ones mixed in and everyone had a brilliant time – parents and children alike! Some of the children are still talking about Gary 3 weeks later!! And the parents were so impressed at the way Gary learned each name within seconds and was able to remember them all at the end of the party and he kept the children’s interest for the whole time! We were also grateful as we had been away and were delayed returning and would have had to cancel the party had we not had such faith in Gary being able to “run the proceedings”. Now we are just so excited that my brother enjoyed it so much he booked a party for my nephew so we get to play again!! yey!!! Highly highly recommend the parties, and the classes too – thank you!!!!!

  462. Rachael B

    A huge thank you to Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) for entertaining all of the children at the birthday party yesterday – you managed to involve and include all of the children (and how you remember all their names is amazing!); the parachute lift was a favourite for the birthday girl but everybody seemed to enjoy the variety of games. Thanks again for making the day such a success!

  463. Katrina (Perth)

    I wanted to say thanks again for coming to our group and doing the free taster session for children with Down’s Syndrome. The kids all really enjoyed it and the parents also said they thought it had gone well. We may well contact you again about another session. I am also now Vice Chairman of our Tayside and Fife Branch of Down’s Syndrome Scotland so I will discuss at our next Committee meeting whether this is an activity that is of interest to all our families on a regular basis.

  464. Rhona Cochrane

    A huge thank you to Kevin (Lenzie Class) for making Adam’s Birthday party such a fantastic experience! A great time was had by all the children and many of the parents all commented on how their children enjoyed it. Well organised and such good fun. I would highly recommend Kevin @ a-starsports for any parties and weekly classes. Well done!

  465. Emma Thomson

    A huge ‘Thank You’ to Kevin (Glasgow) for Charlie’s 7th birthday party! He entertained 30 excited children who had great fun & loved his games. He also made my life very easy by helping with organising the kids at snack time & even helped us clear up :) I’ve been having parties for my children for 14 years & this was the easiest ever!!

  466. Lisa Mann

    Thanks very much to Gary (Perth & Kinross) for a great fun filled party this afternoon. The kids were a mixture of ages, 2-6 yrs old, and the activities were suitable for all. I would definitely recommend A-Star Sports parties for anyone looking for a fab active party to keep all entertained. Thanks again.

  467. Nicola Clark-Tonberg

    I can’t recommend A-Star Sports more highly – lovely Alister (Edinburgh North, West & surrounding areas) has just kept 24 six year olds and assorted little brothers and sisters highly entertained and amused at my son’s birthday party. After three years of knowing Alister and his team I can honestly say they’re amazing. Maybe they can teach ME to catch a ball now!

  468. Constance Tough, Headteacher

    I speak on behalf of all staff members and pupils when I say that your (Steven Cairney – Dundee & Angus) input during Health Week was greatly appreciated. It is always a delight to welcome people into the school who can share first-hand with the children their knowledge about their job, interests, expertise or life experiences. Once again, may I thank you and hope we can call on your services for future events.

  469. H Chesters

    Hi Gary / Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas) – just wanted to say a massive thank you for the holiday club, so pleased Nathan made me enter the competition on Dee 106.3!! They have both really enjoyed it and have loved learning new sports that they would not normally get chance to do at school. I was a bit worried about Nathan coming at first following his illness but if ever anyone has any concerns about sending a child with any disability then they need not worry – you have been great with him and it has really helped his confidence in being able to do things like he could before he was ill. We will be back in October!!

  470. Victoria J - Kinross

    Gary (Perth & Kinross / East Fife), just to say a massive THANK YOU for Oliver’s fantastic party, all the kids had a ball and it was the easiest party we’ve ever done! I had so many texts come through from the parents saying how much their kids had enjoyed it, so thank you……..

  471. H Ruddy

    Massive thank you to Stephen and Gemma (Dundee & surrounding) for Cameron’s 6th birthday party. All the kids had a blast, and it was so nice to be able to leave them all in capable hands, which let me just concentrate on the food. No stress mum = happy mum. Stephen was extremely helpful on the phone, and kept in touch to see if he could help in any way. On the day itself, Gemma was absolutely brilliant and the kids loved her. Massive hit with all the school kids! Thanks again, and I’ll be in touch for my other son’s birthday.

    Another reason to love A-Star Sports…just watched Newsnight on BBC 2; The 2012 Olympics is inspiring the rising generation from all backgrounds, but yet there is no specialist sport coaching in primary schools and a severe lack of access to facilities in the more deprived areas. Thankfully, A-Star Sports coaches (Chester & surrounding areas) are giving my children the opportunity to gain experience in MANY different sports that I never had the opportunity to play and from such a young age.

  473. Joanne Pennington

    Matthew had a fantastic 6th Birthday party, thank you so much Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas). I was thoroughly impressed by your helpfulness from the day I first made contact with you. The children had a brilliant time and they were kept entertained from start to finish, I would definitely recommend an A-Star Sports party to anyone. Thank you.

  474. Katherine Hogg

    Dear Steven (Dundee & Angus),

    We just wanted to say a big thank you from us all for helping make Andrew’s party on Sunday a great succes. You are brillant with the kids – they all respond to you so well – and Andrew had a ball! All the children enjoyed the games and the parachute was the highlight – the looks on their faces was great to see!

    Many thanks again

    Johnny, Katherine, Andrew & David

  475. Andy & Elaine Fraser

    A big thankyou to Steven (Dundee & Angus) for Scott’s 5th birthday party last Saturday. The kids all had a great time and it was the talk of the nursery on Monday. The parachute game went down particularly well, especially among the mums & dads! Great fun, well organised and everyone was included. I would definitely recommend Steven for kids’ parties and wish something similar had been around when I were a lad!

  476. Mrs T Ives

    Just want to say a great big Thank you from the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides who attended our Jubilee Fun Day. The weather had left the field so soggy and we were worried we could not have the sports, but ‘oh no’ A-Star Sports (Chester & surrounding areas) came up trumps with a variety of fun activities for the girls. They had to think of games that could involve girls from 5 to 16 years and that is just what they did. Although we had other activities to do the girls were all asking to have another day that had more sports sessions. I would really recommed A-Star Sports as a reliable and economical day of fun activities including sports and games for all ages. Thank you from Girlguiding Ellesmere Port.

  477. Amanda Wilson

    I must say a big thankyou to Kyle for Thomas’ party on Saturday. Everyone was amazed at how he kept all the children entertained and remembered all their names so brilliantly!! Thomas and all his friends had a wonderful time and I will definately be recommending A-Star Sports + + +

  478. M Lewis

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for Bob’s party today. Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) was brilliant! We had a range of ages from 3 until almost 7 and he not only coped with that challenge, he kept every one of them entertained – I think they will all sleep well tonight!! The parents that stayed all said what a great party it was and they were so impressed with Kyle.

  479. Bea and Ally Morrice

    Very many thanks to Dale (Edinburgh) for providing Isobel and her pals with an enjoyable and memorable 5th birthday party. Judging by the noises and the smiles on their faces, all of them had a great time.

  480. C Manley

    Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) did a brilliant party for my children. They loved it. He kept all their friends fully entertained throughout, leaving me free to do other things. This is the 3rd party we’ve seen of Gary’s, all just as good fun! Feedback from some other parents was he’s amazing with the kids – thanks again Gary.

  481. Jon

    Thanks to Dale (Edinburgh) for providing a fantastic 6th birthday party for Nathan and his friends! The games came thick and fast, keeping the kids thoroughly entertained throughout. Would recommend to anyone organising a party for energetic youngsters!

  482. Rachel

    Can not speak highly enough of Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) and the party he did for our daughter and her friend. He was at the venue before us, assisted us in setting up tables and chairs, spent time to get to know the birthday girls and siblings before guests arrived, kept all the party goers entertained throughout, learned their names, kept the lively ones in line, kept them amused while they ate. Helped tidy up after. Highly recommend him for a party!

  483. Edinburgh Ballet

    Alister and Dale (Edinburgh North, West & surrounding areas) – a huge thank you from all the students at Edinburgh Ballet for helping to make our ‘fun day’ a great success! Just wanted to add a personal note to say thanks so much for all your efforts today. It was a great day with lots of fun had by all. We are delighted to have achieved our fundraising target, so thanks again for your help! Mel

  484. Tor Bretherton, Manager of Harrison Playgroup, NMC

    A MASSIVE thank you from all the Tuesday children attending Harrison Playgroup at North Merchiston Club!!!! A-Star Sports (Edinburgh South & East, Midlothian and East Lothian) have run free taster sessions for the children and I am delighted by how much each child has progressed in their listening skills, concentration and ball skills. Thank you SO much.

  485. Linda Williams

    Thank you for Jack’s party! Jack really enjoyed it and his friends seemed to have had a good time. Thanks again. (Chester & surrounding areas)

  486. Mayfield Salisbury Playgroup.

    Thank you for supporting our Summer Fair. We would like to take this opportunity to say what a treat it was having Alister (Edinburgh North, West & surrounding areas) keeping our children fit and entertained! The children were mesmerised by Alister and his energy and enthusiasm meant that they had such a fun time.

  487. Helen & Ben White

    Joe had a great birthday party! Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) was at the venue when we arrived and was superb throughout. His organisation of the children and games was fantastic and really took the pressure off us and allowed us to enjoy the party too. Joe thought Mark was brilliant!

  488. S Nisbet

    Thank you so much for giving Daisy a brilliant party on Monday, Gary (Perth & Kinross / East Fife). The afternoon has been the talk of school and everyone loved it!

    I will definitely recommend you to other mum’s for any parties that they are looking to organise and will be back in touch for anything that we are organising in the future.

  489. Su

    My son used to attend these classes and A-Star have just done his 10th birthday party – both were great! Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) somehow manages to memorise all the names, make an appropriate fuss of the birthday boy, maintain order and maximize fun. 100% recommended!

  490. Alison Skea

    A massive thank you on behalf of Swansacre Playgroup for an absolutely brilliant Sports Day this morning, Gary (Perth & Kinross)! The kids had a ball and especially loved Over the Hedge (volleyball), the Sausage Race (relay) and the Shot Putt. Fantastic – can’t wait to do it all again on Wednesday! :)

  491. Julie Agnew

    A-Star Sports provide my nursery children with fabulous fun filled sessions! As a health promoting nursery Kevin Key supports us with sports sessions which make exercise fun and exciting for the children and staff! Kevin ensures that the activities are age and stage appropriate and offer challenges for the children. The children are becoming more confident as a result. Five star experience for our children and lots of ideas for staff to carry on in nursery.
    Well done A-Stars!!!

  492. Briony Jardine

    Gary (Perth & Kinross / East Fife) kicked off our school’s health week and all the nursery children thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The activities were age appropriate and differentiated accordingly to meet the needs of all the children. The day was well organised and ran very smoothly. Gary worked well with all children, staff and parents and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to someone else. I hope he will come back next year for more sporting fun. Thank you!

  493. M Morris

    Review via http://freeindex.co.uk: All 27 children had an amazing time and the birthday boy hasn’t stopped talking about it since. Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas) did a brilliant job both in communication before the event and then on the day. She remembered all the children’s names from the start which was really nice and she kept them all engaged and happy throughout the party. The games were great, really mixed which suited all the children with something for all of them. Very much appreciated and would highly recommend to anybody. Thanks.

  494. Karla Lewis

    Thank you for a fantastic party. The children were totally absorbed and occupied for the entire time playing a wide range of fun games. Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) had total control over them but in a very pleasant way and he couldn’t have been more helpful even once his bit was done. Harry (6) thoroughly enjoyed it and so did we! Thank you.

  495. D Simpson

    Thanks again for a great party Kevin and a big thank you to Joanne, too. Everyone raved about it at nursery this morning and said it was the best birthday party they and their kids had been too. Even more so the fact that Joanne rememberd EVERY single Child’s name as soon as she was told … not an easy task when you have 18 kids in front of you for the first time. High 5, Jo :0)

  496. Jack and Karen

    Isla and her friends had the most amazing 4th birthday party thanks to Gary (Perth & Kinross / East Fife). His ability to control a large number of excited children was fantastic and he aimed the well paced activities perfectly for the age group. He also gently persuaded those children who were shy to join in – parents watched in awe! I would highly recommend Gary for a party of any age. Everyone will be sure to have fun. Thanks, Gary!

  497. Sarah R

    Review via http://freeindex.co.uk – Over the past few years, Gary and his team (Chester & surrounding areas) have brought both my son and daughter on leaps and bounds, teaching them a number of skills, which they have been able to apply to various sport activities and also in everyday life. Gary creates a bond with the children he works with; he has patience, an ability to balance fun with respect and a real talent for coaching. I can’t recommend Gary and A-Star Sports highly enough.

  498. Fiona Jeffrey

    A big thank you to Gary Slater (Kinross) for Karis’s 5th birthday party. Gary was absolutely tremendous, even helping me set up beforehand, and everyone had a wonderful time.

    100% recommended!! Thanks again.

  499. L Chamberlain

    I really can’t rate A-Star Sports highly enough. My Son James has been attending classes with Gary (Chester & surrounding areas) since he was 2 1/2 and I have to say it’s been the making of him. James had speech problems when he was younger and was never confident at school but seeing him in class he was like a different boy. All the classes are age appropriate, starting out from 5 minutes of lots of different skill building activities to start with and now he’s playing short games of football etc. Each lesson a new rule or skill is taught and practised so they are not inundated with lots of new things at once. We also had an A-Star Sports birthday party this weekend – it was the best party ever. All the kids and parents loved it – it was so well organised and structured – certainly took the pressure off me. Holiday Club is fab too and we’re already signed up for this year. I have to say that the best thing about A-Star Sports is the Team – it doesn’t matter who teaches you they all have the same training.

    Testimonial submitted via Facebook ‘ratings’.

  500. Lisa

    I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Callum for hosting a fabulous party for Karmen and her friends for her birthday. The children were thoroughly entertained, never a dull moment; he even managed to get Mum and Dad involved. Good job, definitely recommend Callum to anyone.

  501. Emma & James Riches

    Would like to say a huge thank you to Gemma from A-Star Sports (Perth & Kinross), Hamish had a fantastic time with his friends on Saturday, all the children loved the activities and games. I don’t know how Gemma remembers all the children’s names, for such a big group of 4 year olds. All the parents were amazed how Gemma managed to get all their children’s names correct and how they all listened to whatever Gemma had to say and the control she had of them to participate. Gemma, you’re an absolute star. It made the whole party very stress free, I was able to get the food organised while the children were being entertained. All the parents thought it was a fantastic idea for a children’s party, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Gemma and A-Star Sports. Thank you so much for making Hamish’s 4 Birthday Party very special and a funtastic celebration!!

  502. Anne

    We had a fantastic time with Crazy Callum today! He taught us some great games and worked really well with all the children. His enthusiasm was infectious and a great time was had by all.

  503. Arniston Playgroup

    Dear Brian (Edinburgh South & East, Midlothian and East Lothian) – we would like to express a huge thank you for the work you carried out with the children. Your knowledge and interactive skills with the children was second to none. You ensured all 14 children were included in the activities and kept the children’s attention at all times. Every child left the building talking about what you had carried out with them. The staff were so impressed that we have now included some quality indoor time to allow us to use the ideas we gained from you. Once again, thank you for your support and generosity, it is very nuch appreciated.

  504. 172 Pentland Beavers

    A big thank you for an excellent ‘guest appearance’ evening at our Beaver Scout Colony. The Beavers had a really great time; they learned lots (the values that you teach are very aligned to scouting) and had great fun in the process. Thanks again!

  505. G Roberts

    Adam went to the Hoole session today (Chester & surrounding areas) – it was his second session. He was really made up with his new t-shirt!

  506. C Bennett

    Amber really enjoyed her first session today (Kelsall – Chester & surrounding areas) – she hasn’t stopped going on about it, and wants to know if she can come again tomorrow :-) x

  507. V King

    We cannot thank Mark enough for bringing the best out of Alfie as he is such a quiet little boy who loves A-Star Sports and this week Alfie is so proud at winning his award. Thank you, Mark (Chester & surrounding areas).

  508. D Shaw

    Just a quick message to say how pleased we were with our son’s birthday party on Sunday. Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) arrived in plenty of time and I was very grateful that he played with my two kids for 10 minutes while we finished setting up. The party was great, all of the kids (aged 3 to 5) really enjoyed the games and responded very well to Mark’s instructions. I have had many comments from other parents as to how well Mark interacted with the kids and how amazed they were he could remember their names. Mark was also helpful with sorting out the party bags and tidying up.

    Evan loves his class on a Monday and I would highly recommend your parties and classes.

  509. Julia Maguire

    We saw Alister at a party for our son’s friend and were so blown away we immediately booked him for our son’s party 4 months later. We’ve just had that party and it was as good as we’d hoped. Alister manages to engage with the kids in a way that lets them have crazy active fun, while keeping them under control as well. He remembered the names of all 25 kids which was a feat in itself. He is very funny, hugely energetic, able to connect with kids brilliantly and is also very inclusive, so a few of the kids who didn’t know any others didn’t feel isolated. The balance of fun and control was perfect, so the kids were reined in when they needed to be but didn’t notice it was happening because it was all done as part of the fun. It was a brilliant party, everyone had a fabulous time, so thanks Alister! We’re looking forward to booking some summer holiday activities now!

  510. S Weaver

    Review via http://freeindex.co.uk – My little boy and his friend attend A-Star Sports weekly and requested A-Star Sports do their joint 4th Birthday party. The party was a great success – all the children were fully engaged and entertained for the duration of the party and a great time was had by all. Following the party we had excellent feedback. I certainly recommend A-Star Sports for a successful party.

  511. Suzanne

    A big thanks to Gary & Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas) for the fantastic party yesterday. Sam, Daniel and all their friends had a great time. You managed to engage and entertain all the children for the entire 90 minutes – wonderful. Thanks also for staying to do the cake. We’ve had excellent feedback about the party.

  512. Vicki Sutherland

    Our A-Star party was fab – Gary Slater is a super star!

    Thanks so much for making a kids party so much fun, the kids have been talking about it ever since. How on earth do you manage to remember all the kids names? We were impressed, they are still talking about the inflatable bananas that was their favourite bit!! Thanks again, Gary.

  513. Andrea

    Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) – brill party yesterday. Alexander loved being the centre of attention, and the mums and dads thought tiring the kids out was a great idea – thanks! And please start classes in Northwich on a Thursday or Friday for my younger son!

  514. Paul Bell

    Thanks for entertaining the kids so well for Ethan and Rosa’s 5th birthday party! Ethan’s volunteered comment afterwards says it all – “I want all my parties to be here (with Gary)”. All the kids loved it! (Chester & surrounding areas)

  515. Sally

    Alister – thank you so much for doing Robbie’s 6th birthday party. It was a fantastic morning and the most stress-free party I have ever held! Thanks, again.

  516. Nicky and Freddy

    Thank you, Ali. You were fantastic, the kids all loved you! Freddy has not stopped talking about the fun time he had. You certainly made his 6th birthday special. Thank you.

  517. Verity and Tahlia Bowcock

    Sharon Bassett was an absolute star!

    It is the first time I have not had to panic about the entertainment provided for my daughter’s party – worrying if the children would enjoy themselves or not. Knowing Sharon fron Tahlia’s regular A-Star Sports classes, I knew Sharon would deliver a great party.

    Sharon is a true professional and has great skills both with adults and children alike. She pitched the party perfectly for a large group of 27 four and five year olds with a few two year old siblings tagging along, too. I, and other parents, could not believe how quickly she knew all the children’s names and engaged them for the full hour and a half of games.

    Even after she had finished her activities – she got the children’s attention to sing Happy Birthday! A great party – one I would fully recommend to others and I know the other Mums and Dads who were at the party were impressed too. They are asking about the regular classes and getting details to host a party!

    Tahlia had a fantastic 5th birthday! Thanks, Sharon.

  518. Julie Thomson

    The reliable Steven provided yet again the perfect activity party for my 5 year old and his friends. Steven’s structured activity meant that the children enjoyed lots fun in a secure and safe manner. The staff on duty at the leisure centre commented that ours was the best behaved party they had seen in a long time. When you are responsible for providing a successful children’s party where all the children join in and respond well to the fun, this is the way to go. Steven Cairney (Brechin) has a real enthusiasm and gift with children. Would highly recommend this stress-free option.

  519. Alison

    Gary Bassett (Chester) did a party for our 4 year old, Lauren, and 20 of her full-of-energy mates. He has this fantastic ability to remember all their names, let them go mad, but keep them under control and most of all let them have a great time. He takes the pressure of running the party off you so that you can do the food etc and chat to the other parents. Everyone said how good a party it was. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

  520. Louise McAleese

    We had a wonderful party with Gary Slater today! Just fantastic! Everyone had a ball, everyone was included. The least stressful party we have ever held. AMAZING was the verdict from my son. Thank you for making his day very special

  521. Susan W

    We decided to book Gary Slater for a birthday party having seen how fantastic he was with the kids at the local youth club. The birthday party (for 30+ children) was without doubt the most fun, most stress-free party we have ever held. All the children had a fantastic time, we had time and space to sort the food while Gary took charge, and it was lovely to hear how he made the birthday girl centre of the action while ensuring everyone else had an equally great time. His rapport with the children is terrific. I would recommend Gary for birthday parties for both boys and girls (ours was mixed), and we will certainly be using him again.

  522. Neil

    Spent a wonderful hour with A-Star Sports in Kinross. It’s so good to see children enjoy themselves so much with this introduction to sport class, I thoroughly recommend it to any parent. Gary Slater is so good with the children, fun and learning together is nice to see.

  523. Sarah Corsar

    Gary Slater (Kinross) provided a fantastic birthday party experience for our daughter Maya and her 28 (!!!!) friends from nursery. From start to finish Gary made the party a memorable and fun time for the children. He totally went the extra mile by creating ball games relating to the Smurfs as Maya wanted a Smurf party. From our initial booking to the end of the party we had a great customer experience and would recommend Gary to any parents considering an A-Stars Sports party. I think Maya and her friends would also agree!

  524. Nicky and Freddy

    Thank you, Ali (Edinburgh North/West) – you were fantastic and the kids all loved you. Freddy has not stopped talking about the fun time he had. You certainly made his 6th Birthday special. Thank you.

  525. Claire Ruddy

    My son had an A-Star Sports party for his 5th birthday. It was fantastic and all the kids had a great time. Kevin was great with the kids and kept them entertained for the whole time. Many parents are now having A-Star Sports parties for their own children due to the great time that was had by all.

  526. D Wallace

    I have nothing but praise for the Edinburgh Merchiston class instructor Dale. He has a natural ability to interact with the kids getting them to line up, listen and be quiet without him having to say a word. He can then have them laughing within seconds, all taking part fully involved and learning through fun.

  527. Adele Munday

    I would rate this the BEST childrens activity out there. The hour long classes and range of sports covered give children a really good grounding in many team sports. The lessons are extremely well taught, promote good sportsmanship and seem great fun, my son never wants to miss a class (Chester & surrounding areas). As a full-time working Mum, ‘A-Star Sports’ enable my son to play many sports I simply wouldn’t have the time or knowledge to teach him.

  528. Finlay Macdonald

    Thank you to Steven (Tayside and Angus) for Emily’s Birthday party on Saturday 17th March.
    A fun filled party for 5 year olds. Both boys and girls had a whale of a time and Steven provided a very slick and professional party. I would certainly recommend to other parents in the area.

  529. Sharon Kelly

    Hi, thanks very much for helping Ava and her 30+ friends celebrate her 7th birthday. A great time was had by all and the Princesses and Pirates have been raving about how much fun it was. As parents, we were impressed with how you managed to command the attention of such a high number of excitable children! We would highly recommend Steven (Dundee & Angus) and I’ve got a feeling he will be helping our son celebrate his birthday too when the time comes. Thanks again, Sharon and Shaun :-)

  530. Sara

    A massive thank you to Mark (Chester) for the fabulous party he did for my son’s 4th birthday last weekend! Ben absolutely loved it and, even though there was a wide range of ages in the children at the party, Mark kept them all totally engaged and clearly enjoying themselves for the whole time. I have no idea how but he also managed to remember every single one of the 19 names! Would absolutely recommend A-Star Sports for parties – brilliant entertainment for any age group and excellent value for money! Its no surprise that many of the parents at our party have either already had an A-Star Sports party or are now looking to book one! Many thanks, Mark!

  531. Alison Smith

    A huge thank you to Gary (Kinross area) for Tom’s party on Saturday. He kept sixteen 5 year olds entranced for the duration of the party. All left exhaused but happy, thank you!

  532. S Harrison

    Thank you to yourselves and especially Kyle (Chester & surrounding areas) for making Jacob’s birthday party a success. All the children enjoyed themselves and had a brilliant time. I think all the parents were happy last night as the children were well and truly worn out and in bed early!

  533. M Meredith

    A big thank you to Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) for Cameron’s party yesterday. He did a great party – Cameron and his pals were thoroughly entertained and had a great time. We have had a lot of positive feedback from the parents, so hopefully it will encourage others to have one, too!

  534. Margaret Hammond

    A MASSIVE thankyou to Kevin Key for my son Craig’s 6th Birthday party on Saturday. There was no doubt that all 29 kids had a fantastic time. Kevin has a very unique way of dealing with the children, they just love him! They behave and enjoy the fun-packed 1.5 hours. I had nothing to do!!!!! – just perfect!! Kevin once again thanks so much!! – highly recommended!!!

  535. Sharon Welsh

    My 7 year old son has been going to our local session for some time. As well as being a fun-filled hour of exercise he has learned various sports and how to be a good sportsman (prior to these classes turn-taking and not winning everytime were a challenge for him). A special thank you to Leanne at the Bridge of Weir session who manages to capture the attention of every child and make hard work seem like fun.

  536. Janne Hooper (Brown Owl)

    Gary and Mark’s (Chester & surrounding areas) session complimented our ‘Olympic’ themed Pack Holiday magnificently with their mix of handball skills and athletic events. The 21 Brownies (7-10 yrs), under their guidance, had the opportunity to experience throwing the javelin and hammer. They also learned the basic rules of handball which culminated in an energetic game to put them into the practice! To finish with the Brownies had a team relay and loved the opportunity to try the hurdles. Their visit was a big success and one of the high points of the weekend. Many thanks.

  537. Louise Smart

    Rosemount nursery has been working with Gary Slater for over 18 months and the children thoroughly enjoy the sessions each week. Gary shows great skill, knowledge & enthusiasm in providing a fun energetic skill-based sports sesssion which greatly adds to the development of both the health and well-being of our children.

  538. Angela

    Thank you to Gemma (Dundee) for making my daughter’s 7th birthday party a fantastic success. All the kids had a brilliant time and a few parents have asked for Gemma’s contact details, she is great with the kids and makes it such fun. Highly recommended!

  539. Lucy & Scott Davidson

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Gary Slater (Perth) for a fantastic A-Star Sports Party for Ashley’s 5th Birthday! All the kids had an amazing time and I know the parents were all really impressed too! Thank you and I’m sure we will be seeing you again soon!

  540. Mark Bainbridge

    Thanks for a great joint party for my daughter and her friend. A village hall full of reception children were brilliantly entertained for 2 hours. All the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we would definitley recommend a party with Gary (Chester & surrounding areas).

  541. J Cavanagh

    Thank you for the brilliant party you did for Zach and James, Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas). All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks again for a lovely birthday!

  542. Susan Matthew

    Just had a party for my 6 year old and his 27 friends!!! Party was run by Steven Cairney (Dundee). This is the second time we have used Steven, he is fantastic with the kids, it amazes me how they just behave!!! I would always recommend Steven to anyone, he makes the party enjoyable for kids and me! No stress at all!!! Thank you Steven, hope to see you soon as I know a lot of the parents were impressed!!!!

  543. Sharon & Daisy Woodward

    Gary Bassett (Chester & surrounding areas) provided a fab party for my daughter’s 6th birthday. I cannot believe Gary could remember every child’s name (22 of them) that he had not met before! Gary provided a very personal approach to each child as they arrived, which as a parent I thought was fabulous. Many thanks, Gary – you have definitely been recommended.

  544. Susan

    What can I say? The 24 kids at my sons 5th birthday party had a ball. Gemma (Perth) is fantastic and lots of the parents commented on how she managed the kids and how they were responding to her so well. Would highly recommend both the parties and the classes!

  545. Jo

    Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) did a fantastic job at our daughter Emma’s 6th birthday party over in Broughton. The kids loved it. Professional at all times and mingled with them when it was food time. He remembered all their names too!!! Would recommend to anyone.

  546. Cheryl Gahan

    Gemma did my son’s 6th birthday party on Saturday and all the kids had great fun, lots of different games for the kids to get involved in. Gemma was fantastic with the kids and I would definitely recommend A-Star Sports to all you parents out there!!

  547. Sarah Johnson

    Sharon (Chester & surrounding areas) provided a thoroughly enjoyable fifth birthday party. Thirteen lively five year old boys were kept enthused and enthralled during the sport activity games, whilst the party was kept well-controlled. I very much recommend A-star sports, it makes life easier for us all.

  548. Lynn Watret

    My 6 year old son, Ross, began classes last week in Lockerbie. He came out absolutely buzzing with excitment and enthusiasm!! All credit to Tommy for making the session so much fun! A fantasic way to let off steam after a hard day in the classroom!!

    Having seen how much fun was had, Gregor – my 3 year old – begins this Thursday and is already hyper at the prospect of attending!! Will be recommending the sessions to friends for sure! Thanks guys and keep up the brilliant work!!

  549. Ricky McCracken

    Hope organised a fantastic 3rd Birthday Party for our son Ben and his 20 friends. She did a great job of ensuring all the little ones were involved in a variety of fun games and activities and Ben really enjoyed himself. Many of the parents also thought it was a excellent party for getting the kids involved in playing games and everyone joined in. Hope was very enthusiastic with the children which created a really good party atmosphere! She also went over and above the call of duty by helping us set up the party room which was a nice touch! We can certainly recommend Hope for future parties!

  550. S Bebbington

    Gary and Sharon Bassett provided the most perfect party for our liitle boy’s 5th birthday. There was a good mixture of boys and girls all from the same class at school. Gary has an amazing talent to be able to remember everybody’s name, not just the most energetic children (!) and was really good ensuring everybody was involved. I would strongly recommend A-Star Sports for birthday parties, they make life easier for mums and dads.

    I can’t recommend these classes enough! Children who are already good at sport get even better and those (like mine) who have slightly less natural ability get good. My children all love the classes which definitely increase their confidence as well as ability in all sports, and helps them look quite competent when they do PE at school – no mean feat!! Gary Slater does a great job of making sure everyone in his classes are challenged and encouraged…and they have so much fun :)

    We would like to thank you – Kyle and Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) – for giving Xavier such an amazing 5th birthday party. He had a fantastic time, as did all the kids he invited. You were so professional and had total control of the little terrors! All of the parents said how impressive you were and several children have asked if they can have the ‘same’ party as Xavier – watch this space!

    My five year old son, Ethan, attends Thornton Hough Village Hall on Tuesday afternoons for the one hour session with Mark. Ethan and his friends always enjoy the sessions. We decided to book a party at the same venue last Saturday. This is probably one of the best parties that we have had so far and this is without doubt as a result of Mark. The kids really enjoyed the party and the parents who watched from the back of the hall were highly complimentary of Mark also. I’m sure there will be more bookings as a result! Mark is an absolute credit to himself and is an excellent ambassador for A-Star Sports.

    Everyone had a ball. No pun intended. Gemma was fantastic throughout the whole party. Definitely recommend 2 friends 4 the future.

    We have just had a fantastic birthday party for our daughter who is turning 4 next week. There were 45 children aged 4 and below and Gary Bassett was fantastic with them all. He kept them all entertained and I still don’t know how he remembers all their names! I would recommend A-Star Sports to anyone. They arrive early to help you set up, they help get the children seated for food, line the children up to collect their party bags…and most of all the children have a great time. They just make everything so easy for the party host. Thanks again, Gary. Sure we will see you again in the future for more parties x

    My son, although active, able and full of energy was not a natural sportsman and intimidated by faster more skilled boys so reluctant to join in team sports. After attending weekly sessions, his confidence grew and abilities developed so that he is now eager to play sports. He has chosen to play both hockey and football outside school, and is playing well, gaining praise from the coaches and enjoying the games. I do not believe this would have happened without the huge input from Sharon & Gary Bassett. Thank you.

    We had 25 x 6-9 year olds at our “Olympic” party and Gary Bassett entertained all of them for two fun-filled hours, keeping them happy from the moment they arrived. The easiest and best party we’ve ever done! Highly recommend!

  558. V. Conway

    Thank you for sending Mark (Chester & surrounding areas) to facilitate our party – he was brilliant! The children responded to him brilliantly and his memory is something else – 28 children’s names remembered, amazing! A great experience and certainly one I will recommend to friends.

    My Son regularly attends the weekly sessions and thoroughly enjoys the variety of sports offered. Gary Bassett is a fantastic coach and keeps the children focussed and interested at all times!

    We have also just had an A-Star Sports birthday party to celebrate our son’s 6th birthday. Again, the coach was Gary, who successfully managed to keep 21 x 6 yr olds well and truly happy for the whole two hours. Well done and keep up the good work!

    Coaches provide sports coaching through varied and fun games to improve the children’s confidence, self-esteem, balance, hand-eye co-ordination and general fitness…[with] a huge array of varied and imaginative equipment to make the skills accessible to children…a great sense of fun, team spirit and energy in each session.

  561. S. Edwards

    A healthy, positive attitude to sport and activity whatever a child’s skill and encouragement to learn and enjoy all sports…The coaches are great role models for the children who strongly admire them.

  562. K. Jones

    The activities are so good that the children don’t even realise the skills that they are learning! Children are encouraged as individuals but also to work together.

  563. P. McNamee

    Every child, whatever their strengths or weaknesses may be, spends an hour each week having fun, learning new skills, and all in an environment that is safe. Every child leaves with a smile and a pride in themselves…Each child is eager to please, excited to learn and determined to contribute.

  564. R. Niestroj

    I was so pleased I rang the telephone number at the end of the snippet in the local paper! My kids love it and so look forward to their weekly sessions. As the classes are small, this enables the coach to really get to know the individual needs of the children….[our coach is] very sensitive to children’s individual needs and helps to build their confidence, skills and determination to do well.

  565. C. Rowson

    This programme encourages friendship, team and individual development…lots of fun and smiling faces… Children love to listen for the next game and their attention is held with eager keenness.

  566. S. Dawson

    The programme helps the children with co-ordination, motivation, fantastic physical activities in a real fun and imaginative way.

  567. J. Aldridge

    Few activities generate the laughter and exuberance of allowing children to be children whilst still providing a learning platform…[the activities] inspire all children to be active, caring, happy, more confident, enthusiastic, sociable, well mannered and team spirited individuals

  568. R. Tootell

    The sessions build on the skills that the children have, give them confidence to try new activities and provide challenge. As a primary school teacher who regularly monitors the lessons of other teachers, I wish I saw the level of commitment, planning, organisation and enthusiasm in school that I see every week here.
