Have your say

A giant indoor trampoline park will soon open in Sheffield, creating 70 jobs.

Visitors to Meadowhall will be able to bounce of the floor, walls and ceiling when Jump Inc opens this spring.

The 36,000 sq ft site will include more than 140 interconnected trampolines and nets. It will open seven days a week and will host instructed classes.

Jump Inc founder Chris Hayes, from Handsworth, said: “Our first trampoline park at Parkgate, Rotherham has been a huge success with over 35,000 jumpers in our first month alone.

“The demand from the local community has been overwhelming and we are often fully booked to capacity three or four days in advance which, has given us the confidence to open a larger park at Meadowhall.

“The demand for Jump Inc is definitely there and this new park will enable us to increase our capacity and develop our offering further. This is a very exciting project to be pulling together. It’s a huge investment in the local region and we will be creating 70 new jobs at the Meadowhall park.

“We wanted to do this in our local community to promote health, wellbeing and quality family time - encouraging all ages to get active while having fun.

“Our aim is to be market leaders in the UK with more parks planned over the next three years. While this is a new sector in the UK leisure market, we aim to lead the sector through innovation, park design and out-of-this-world customer service for an unrivalled leisure experience in a safe environment.”
