We specialise in providing fully themed, sumo suit wrestling fun for your party. And for a party in the Woking area you now have a choice:

Either, you can separately book Sumo Experience, a venue of your choice and deal with the catering yourself (see our for kids page)

Or, let us arrange your Sumo party with Freedom Leisure at the Woking Leisure Centre.

This page gives you specific low-down on a Sumo Experience party package at the Woking Leisure Centre.
