It's true; girls do just want to have fun. If you imagined that sumo was just for the boys you might be surprised. Around a fifth of our parties are just for girls from 7 through to teenagers. You can see from the customer reviews that their parents have had fun too - we have over 20 reviews in this category alone. Read on or select another review category:
"My 10 year old daughter had a fantastic time battling her friends. Such a wonderful and ridiculously funny experience for the girls to do for a birthday party. We still have sore tummies from laughing so much. Martin had the whole thing buttoned and did a fantastic job keeping order as master of the ceremony. Thank you so much!"

"What a fabulous party!! The party was a great success, all the girls loved it and the adults couldn't stop laughing too! Eveything went so smoothly, from the booking of the party right through to the party itself. Nothing was too much trouble, Thankyou for making Eliza and Sophies 10th birthday a very special one and a one that we will all remember for a long time to come... We both would happily recommend you to our friends, what a fun party... Thankyou again for a very entertaining afternoon." ... (suggestion) "Just keep on doing what your doing!!!!"
(Tracey, Hersham - following her daughter's 10th joint-birthday party)
"I was going to email you this AM and say a BIG THANK YOU for a great party. The kids really enjoyed themselves and that is what it is all about. Thanks again for your time, you have a very good approach with the kids (obviously it comes with experience!) ... The children love the 'dressing up' and competition of the event. Luckily this was something none of the group had done before but all were keen to have another go!"
(Julie, Thames Ditton - following her daughter's 11th birthday party)
"This was a superb party. The children still haven't stopped talking about it. I would thoroughly recommend a Sumo Experience Party to anyone considering hiring Martin. He is enthusiastic and utterly professional. Many, many thanks."
(Katherine, Bramley - following her daughter's 10th birthday party)
"... you were brilliant with the girls being teenagers, they can go either way with things like the sumo but you had a knack of pitching it just right for them... they all had so much old fashioned fun that they just seemed to be laughing the whole time. Thanks again and I will recommend you and the sumo party whenever I have the chance"
(Helen, Guildford - following her daughter's 16th birthday party)
"Highly recommend Martin for any aged kids party boy or girls! He entertained x 14, 11 year girls for 2 hours and they have declared it to be the best party ever! Really well organised great fun and loads of laughs for parents and older brothers and sisters too! (who despite being very cool teenagers were desperate to get in on the act!) Something completely unique for my little girl to remember forever!"
(Kate, West Clandon - following her daughter's 11th birthday party)
"Martin provided a Sumo Experience 12th birthday party for our daughter plus 13 friends. The party was huge success and all the girls have been raving about the Sumo Experience ever since. Martin took control from the start, and he kept the girls entertained yet focused thoughout the 75-minute session. The girls loved it. It was hilarious - a joy to watch. Martin was a pleasure to deal with - easy to book, full explanations, very punctual, and highly competent and confident. A great party !"
(Simon, Thames Ditton - following his daughter's 12th birthday party)
"The party went really well. Martin was excellent at getting the fairly quiet girls at the party to get into the swing of things. They all had a great time and I have had lots of comments about how much fun they had. Martin was prompt and very efficient with emails before the event. Thanks very much for a wonderful party!"
(Lauraine, East Horsley - following her daughter's 11th birthday party)
"Thanks for the party, everyone had a whale of a time, and Rebecca said it was fantastic!"
(Helen, Brockley - following her daughter's 15th birthday party)
"My daughter had a Sumo Party for her 8th birthday. It was excellent, so different, a good laugh. The girls loved it, even the ones that were a bit hesitant to participate. Martin is fantastic with the children." ... (suggestion) "I only invited 10 girls, I would definitely invite more, in case there are a few that dont want to participate. That was my fault though"
(Barbara, Thames Ditton- following her daughter's 8th birthday party)
"A sumo experience party was thoroughly enjoyed by my 11 year old daughter and her friends. I found the party leader to be very professional and helpful prior to the party and on the day."
(Philippa, Cobham - following her daughter's 11th birthday party)
"...the downloadable invites were brilliant. All aspects were covered pre-party and on the day everything was set up and cleared away with no fuss and I had nothing to worry about during the party ... Everything was taken care of ... the children were given safety instructions and rules before the games began. It was by far the best party I have ever held for Jessica it was great fun (couldn't stop laughing at them). Very reasonable costs and good value for money. I would suggest that you possibly add a medal of some description for each of the guests (obviously incorporate prices into party cost or offer as an extra) but even without this it was absolutely brilliant"
(Sarah, Walton-on-Thames - following her daughter's 10th birthday party)
"Thanks for running such a lovely party yesterday. The children really enjoyed it and I have had lots of positive comments. … I am sure you will have many more friends/siblings contact you soon."
(Catherine, Dorking - following her daughter's 9th birthday party)
"The girls thoroughly enjoyed it and have said it was the best party ever!!!!"
(Julia, Great Bookham - following her daughter's 11th birthday party)
"Martin was great with getting everything ready, organising the kids and keeping the momentum up for an hour and half. He provides all the necessary kit and the fat suits, along with the helmet and "hair bun", got us all laughing. All the children enjoyed it and talked about it afterwards. Highly recommended for an entertaining party."
(Liz, Weybridge - following her daughter's 12th birthday party)
"An excellent party that was totally new and different for the girls. Thanks again for a lovely party... I had excellent feedback on the T-shirts which the girls loved and were of a high quality." ... (suggestion) "Perhaps you could formalise helper roles and rotate between the spectators eg, gong basher, scorer, your helper to start the bout, someone to throw salt etc"
(Caroline, Weybridge - following her daughter's 9th birthday party)
"Children loved it - as did the ladies who had a go! Concerns about the headgear suitability for 9yr olds. Seemed too large and fell off quiate a few times....needs to be a smaller fit and a forehead strap or something to hold in place. Smoke machine was a definite no-no for the children - dramatic effect outweighed by the coughing and spluttering! Great party overall."
(Phillip, Thames Ditton - following his daughter's 9th birthday party)
"...the girls really enjoyed the party. It was as much fun to watch as it was to participate which is all too rare. I think it was good for the girls to be encouraged to use their physical strength to express their aggression in such a fun and safe way"
(Julie, Kennington - following her daughter's 13th birthday party)
"Beth and her friends really enjoyed the party. It was well organised but fun and Martin was a great host/ref. It was fantastic to find something a bit different which made everyone laugh so much! We would thoroughly recommend it - in fact we already have to several friends!"
(Sarah, Oxshott - following her daughter's 8th birthday party)
"It was a brilliant party which kept some active, inquisitive 10 years old thoroughly engaged. For something a bit different for unafraid and tenacious children it's perfect … They had a fantastic time"
(Sara, Putney - following her daughter's 10th birthday party)
"Sumo party for her 11th birthday and the kids had a great time. Everything (equipment, service, games, entertainment value) was top-notch and I would highly recommend a Sumo Experience party! I would like to thank the Sumo Experience for a fabulous and much talked about party!!"
(Shareen, Sunningdale - following her daughter's 11th birthday party)
"We recently held a Sumo Experience party for my 12 year old daughter. We paid a bit more as we live further afield than normal, but it was well worth it. From the beginning, communication was excellent. As soon as Martin knew the venue, he checked the website and realised that the rooms booked were a bit small, and got back to me straight away. I was able to change the booking at the hall without any trouble. I thought this was very thorough. The girls had a great time, but probably are at the upper end age wise. I think that 10-11 years is the probably the optimum age. We had one 8 year old present, who was only just big enough to fit in the suit!! I know the girls will remember this party for a long time and judging by the noise level and amount of laughing know that they had a great time!!"
(Joanne, Liss - following her daughter's 12th birthday party)
"We had a Sumo Experience party for my daughter's 10th birthday.
It was absolutely brilliant! The girls had so much fun and Martin kept them thoroughly entertained for an hour and a half. They totally got into it and found it fun and hilarious. It is also very entertaning to watch. We hired a hall and called in pizzas for the birthday lunch. It was a perfect 10th birthday party!"
