Cardiff Blues make a splash at Aqua Park Cardiff

First Team News | 11th July 2019

First team players from Cardiff Blues splashed out on Aqua Park Cardiff to get some wet and wild team building ahead of the 2019-20 Guinness PRO14 season.

Tackling mountainous obstacles around the park, the team took the opportunity to use the aqua park as a creative recovery session.

Cardiff Blues hurled their teammates into the air on the super soaking blast bag and showed off their flips and tricks off the Action Tower, exercising team trust and creating lots of healthy competition.

Robin Sowden-Taylor, head of strength and conditioning at Cardiff Blues, said: “It was brilliant to finish our first week of pre-season training at Aqua Park and the boys had a fantastic time.


“As soon as we heard Aqua Park was coming to Cardiff Bay, we were really keen to get involved and to use the facility for a team building and recovery session.

“Being the first week back in training some of the boys have not seen each other for a while and there are some new faces in the squad. It was a brilliant way for the boys to bond away from the usual training environment and have some fun in the process.”

Aqua Park Cardiff is Wales’ biggest inflatable aqua park measuring 8,000 square metres and features more than 70 exciting and challenging obstacles.

Simon James, Director at Aqua Park Cardiff, said: “It was great to have the team come down and take on the park, adding to the Rugby World Cup excitement later this summer. Aqua Park Cardiff is fantastic for team bonding, having a laugh with your friends and getting active in the great outdoors this summer.”

Aqua Park Cardiff is open now until 9thSeptember but due to the high interest, visitors are encouraged to pre-book. Tickets for the park are priced at £20 for a 50-minute session and can be booked on the Aqua Park Cardiff website.
