Off The Felt Activites at UKIPT Bristol

By Mark Valentine

As well as looking after you during your stay in Bristol for the PokerStars United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour, our sister site UKIPT Hotels will make sure that there is plenty for you to enjoy away from the tables. We have arranged activities that will thrill, entertain and may even reward you for your success, so don't miss out!

FootGolf

FootGolf is a combination of two of the UK's favourite sports: Football and Golf. The idea is to get the ball around the course in as few shots as possible, using a size 5 football and your feet! 

The rules are pretty simple and anyone can play. We have spaces available from 14:00 on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th August and it's ONLY £20 per player including transport to and from the casino/venue.

We will also be awarding a trophy for the lowest round!

5-A-Side Football Tournament

After the Penalty-Gate and Ringer-Gate scandal of the 5-A-Side tournament during UKIPT Nottingham we perhaps unwisely have decided to give the UKIPT players further opportunity to 'challenge' each other.

We have two pitches booked at Goals Bristol at 14:00 on Thursday 6th August - Ideally you have a team of 5-7 players ready to go! Please email us to confirm your interest and/or participation. We can arrange transport to and from the DoubleTree by Hilton! 

Thankfully, all of this will be done under the complete control of the professional referees at Goals Bristol South. Cost is just £50 per team (based on minimum 8 teams).

Bristol Balloon Fiesta - Hot-Air Balloon Experience

UKIPT Bristol is happening during the biggest Ballooning week of the year and we're offering players the opportunity to enjoy a 4hr balloon experience. Upon meeting the pilot and ground crew there's a safety briefing, balloon inflation and a 10mile flight with champagne and return journey back to your starting point. Prices begin at £199 per person and are available individually or for groups up to 6 people.

Go Karting

Time to rev up the engines once again as the UKIPT Bristol Karting Championship heads to TeamSport. You will get a 5 minute warm up on the track, followed by qualifying and then the feature race with a podium celebration and trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Places are limited, and are £50 per person on Thursday and Friday at 4pm.

Beer Pong

The Temple Bar at the DoubleTree by Hilton will host the next round of the UKIPT Beer Pong Challenge alongside what is sure to be a low-key affair on Saturday 8th August! The greatest game you can play with ping pong balls and a jug of beer will be open to anyone who wishes to enter. Of course, if you would rather stay off the alcohol, we will also be playing with soft drinks, too!
