Read on to learn more about her story...
COULD YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT SPORTSIE SANCTUM & HOW IT ALL STARTED?
“Sportsie Sanctum is an extension of it’s sister company: Al Buraq Club (a ladies – only and men – only horse riding club based in London). Due to the success and demand of Al Buraq Club’s horse riding retreats, Sportsie Sanctum was created to offer a variety of both single – gender and family multi – sports and fitness activities.
Sportsie Sanctum was also created as an initiative to address and offer a solution to some of the issues that deter women from engaging in sports+fitness. We offer ladies-only sessions, affordable activities and childcare assistance on ladies retreats. In addition, we are a halal/Muslim-friendly venue that ensures the environment, activities and food are all halal.”
WHAT IS GLAMPING?
“Glamping is basically camping but with a touch of luxury. So, instead of sleeping in a standard nylon tent with space only for sleeping bags, a Glamping tent would usually be a little more spacious with decorative furnishings and made of a more durable material. A Glampsite may also feature facilities that are nicer than than what you would find on a campsite, such as: well equipped and decorated bathrooms, an outdoor self – catering kitchen and communal living areas.”
YOU ALSO OFFER LADIES GLAMPING RETREATS. CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THIS?
“Our ladies – only retreats have been deigned for ladies who prefer to participate in sports+fitness activities in a ladies – only environment. Our ladies retreats offer ladies – only sports, fitness, recreational and educational activities. In addition, nearly all our sports instructors are female (you may have the odd male instructor for stationary/sitting sports such as archery/canoeing).”
WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE INCLUDED IN YOUR FAMILY GLAMPING RETREATS?
“Our family retreats include a sports activity, morning countryside treks, sports games and nightly campfires.”
SPORTSIE SANCTUM’S UK GLAMPING RUN FROM JUNE – SEPTEMBER. DO YOU OFFER ANY OVERSEAS RETREATS IN THE WINTER MONTHS?
“We do indeed; we offer worldwide ‘Sportsie Holidays’ all year round! So people looking for multi – sports getaways can join us on our travels before/after our Glamping season. Our sportsie holidays are all about exploring cultures and landscapes through sports and fitness. For example, instead of us hiking on foot through a national park, we would ride through on horseback or on bike. We also experience outdoor activities unique to the countries, such as snorkelling on a pink – beach island in Indonesia, trekking and bathing with elephants in the jungles of Cambodia or hot air ballooning over ancient national parks in Turkey.”
