Activities List

Discover the true “polder” sensation by spending a day in the green fields of Holland. Poldersport De Kwakel offers 13 sports events and 2 polder programs. In our building, ’t Praathuis, you can comfortably converse with your companions before indulging in the polder fun. To complete your programme we can serve lunch, barbecue or drinks and snacks on our garden terrace.
Sports events
Take the opportunity to compose your individual programme from the events listed below. Each event takes 1.5 to 2 hours. The price of two sports events is € 30,50 per participant from Monday through Friday and € 33,00 per participant on Saturdays and Sundays. Each sports event is suitable for groups numbering 10 and more.
This trek through the polder involves 25 different ways of crossing polder watercourses. You will use various ropes, trapezes, ropeways or a raft to get across. In addition, you will do assorted balancing and agility exercises while attempting to get to the other side. You can’t afford to miss on this for the true polder experience. (For pictures see 'Poldersurvival')
You will be launched into the water in a stable Canadian canoe and then make a 4-kilometer long trip through a variety of landscapes. (For pictures see 'Kanotocht')
Teams of 5 to 8 will combat each other on such “disciplines” as a slippery slope, an obstacle course, belly sliding, a caterpillar-skippy-ball race, the A-game, cross-country team skiing, the Ferris wheel and the wobbly barrel, a field see-saw and Balanz Bikes. (For pictures see 'Zeskamp')
This is the Kwakel variety of the traditional, archaic Scottish games: tug-of-war, cross-cut sawing a log, tossing the log and punching the bag. (For pictures see 'Kwakelse highlandgames')
Your assignment is to build a raft with your team, using barrels, wooden beams, ropes and a flagpole and flag. Next, you hold a race to see who is fastest. (For pictures see 'Vlottenbouw')
Amongst the green meadows, a field with real ocean sand and a giant ball strikes the eye. You are attached to your team mates with thick elastic bands. Now let the match begin. The field, by the way, can easily be transformed into a beach-volleyball court. (For pictures see 'Levend- voetbalspel')
Poldersport De Kwakel has collected a couple of spectacular jumping events, including pole vaulting, bungee-trampoline jumping and rail leaping.
In the heart of the polder we play golf with a wooden-shoe club. Try not to hit a cow… (For pictures see 'Quakelgolf')
With your team you will construct a rope bridge spanning 25 metres. Tension mounts as you try to get across: upside down, right side up or if need be by means of a pulley. (For pictures see 'Touwbrug bouwen')
In a team you will build a giant catapult. Once it is finished, you engage in a contest: Who can fling the longest shot? (For pictures see 'Katapult schieten') 
It only takes 10 minutes to learn how to fly a stunt kite. We have kites to go with all wind forces. Will you manage to keep both feet on the ground? (For pictures see 'Stuntvliegeren')
For groups we have selected 7 problems, aka challenges. Each one of them can be solved, even if the solution is not obvious. When the game is over, a brief evaluation will put everyone with their feet back on the ground. For this event there is a supplementary charge of € 4,00 for each participant. (For pictures see 'Poldermodel')
You may not become as good a marksman as Robin Hood in 90 minutes, but it is possible to learn the basics of archery and safety. Who knows; this event could be right on the mark. (For pictures see 'Handboogschieten')
Polder programmes
Polder programmes last from 3 to 4 hours. The price is inclusive of coffee, tea and a slice of Kwakelse krentenwegge, a local treat.Choose any one of the following. 
As a start to this programme for active over-50s an intensive introduction with your coaches is followed by a warming-up. The key factor is the interaction between the coach and the group; any signals from the group will cause the coach to modify the programme. The group determines which way to go: no strings attached, no holds barred!
