The burgeoning interest in trampoline parks shows no sign of abating as plans have been brought forward to open a new venue in south Staffordshire.
New company Jump Xtreme, which is due to open its first venue in Bolton this year, has lodged plans to open a park and café in a disused warehouse in Tamworth, believed to be the only one of its kind in Staffordshire.
The site, in Brent House on the Tame Valley Industrial Estate south of the town, was previously the home a food wholesaler but has been vacant for over a year.
The centre will have interlocking trampolines but also be able to offer sports such as dodgeball and basketball as well as changing rooms with lockers and facilities for parties and events.
It is expected the new venture will create around 60 full- and part-time jobs, have parking for 100 cars and be open seven days a week between 9am and 10pm, with an 11pm close on Fridays.
According to newly submitted planning documents, the park will operate pre-bookable hourly sessions able to accommodate 100 people per time, with a maximum of 55 starting every half hour.
Trampolining is increasingly being seen as a cheap, easy and fun way to make children and young people more active and encourage them to take part in group sport.
Jump Nation is due to open Europe's largest park in Walsall next weekend, which will have 218 trampolines, while Rush UK submitted plans last year to open Birmingham's first venue in a former go-kart track in Kings Norton with more than 100 trampolines.
And Air Space launched its first park in the Midlands shortly before Christmas at a venue boasting more than 100 trampolines in Wednesfield.
Popular in the US, it is a new craze for the UK as the first ones only opened here as recently as 2014.
