As of June 10th until July 10th, the Football European Championships will be taking place in France. For the football fan his is great news, 1 month of international football watching the best players from around Europe going head to head.
But what if you’re not a football fan? Well I’m afraid you’ll be spending the next few weeks trying to remember what time Coronation Street is on because ITV are showing Romania v Switzerland at 7:30pm.
Worry not though, because here 6 activities that will get you out of the house and away from the pubs just long enough for you to miss the matches!
This brand new high ropes course at Tees Barrage, offers a 90 minute session of fun for all the family for as little as £7.50 per person!
Tackle the many obstacles, including rope bridges, zip lines and walk the planks 18 metres above the River Tees!
Complete over 20 unique challenges at GoClimb, the brand new climbing attraction in Billingham Forum. Le your imagination run on the space wall, mirror wall and lightning wall as well as taking on the parabolic slide and leap of faith.
Again, another 90 minute session will get you away from the football for just the right amount of time.

Miss the first half and try a 45 minute Les Mills Body Combat class with Activ8. If that’s not for you, Piloxing, Spinning and AquaFit are all 45 minute sessions.
Enjoy a leisurely swim or race down the flumes at Splash. Enjoy a 1 hour session in the pool and maybe spend some time in the Jacuzzi after for good measure, just to make sure you know the football will be defiantly be finished when you get home!
