Treetop Golf have launched the Quiet Sessions, to provide accessibility and inclusivity to all, which echoes the Metrocentre’s Quiet Hours initiative, which aims to create a more peaceful environment for shoppers.

The Quiet Sessions have been designed to provide a calm environment for those who may find the usual setting overwhelming.

To ensure the environment is less stimulating, Treetop Golf have implemented several adjustments to their courses, which includes no strobe lighting and no background buzz.

It will also be conducting a staggered entry system in order to reduce crowding.

General Manager of Treetop Golf at the Metrocentre, said: "We believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy our unique mini golf experience. Our quiet sessions are our way of ensuring that those who experience sensory overload can enjoy the jungle without discomfort. We’re committed to making sure everyone is welcome at Treetop.”
