Plans have been put forward to open a new trampolining arena on an industrial estate to the south of Leamington and Warwick.

Jump In, which has already succesfully launched a similar venue in Slough, wants to create the ‘140-jumper’ capacity facility which will cover the 26,000sq ft former Leeson Polyurethanes HQ in Hermes Close.

The arena will also provide conference facilities for up to 80 people and could create up to 80 new jobs.

Vernon West, executive chairman and founder, said: “Jumping is great fun and happens to be great for your health, too.”

“We place a focus on providing a safe, clean, affordable and family-friendly environment that set our parks apart, and keeps people coming back.”

The facility will be open for families and will offer including 3D Dodgeball, Kid Zone, Foam Pits, tumble tracks and a huge main court where people can jump freely between interconnected trampolines and literally bounce off the walls.

Jump In was set up by Mr West and his wife Linsey Willaford-West after they visited family in Fort Worth Texas when they came across Altitude Trampoline Park.

They brought their toddler to the park and had so much fun that they came back nearly every day of the remainder of their trip.

They reached out to fellow entrepreneur Gavin Lucas to co-found and head up the organisation.

He was compelled by the opportunity as he is passionate about sports and a fellow parent and could see trampoline parks transforming the way British people get fit.

Subject to planning permission, the team plans to open the arena’s doors to the public in March.
