The Practice is up the road from the famous Chesil beach and on a good day you can see across the sea to the iconic Durdle door coastline from many parts of the Wyke Regis area. Weymouth beaches are sandy and the waters shallow making them ideal playgrounds for young children.

Hiking, cycling, sea swimming and triathlon are also popular local sports.
