29 November 2016Sports Minister launches Flip Out
Paralympic skiing gold medalist Charlotte Evans MBE and representatives from the Kent Sports Trust Foundation were also on hand to launch Flip Out, an 18,500 sq ft arena with 70 inter-linked trampolines.
Flip Out is partnering with the Kent Sports Trust Foundation with the aim of getting trampolining onto the school curriculum across Medway.
Forty new jobs have been created at the Dockside venue which also features a 7m tumble track, free running area, a separate area for the under-5s to bounce in, plus wall runners and foam pits.
Sports Minister Tracey Crouch MP said at the launch: “Trampolining is a really popular activity right across the country and it’s a great way to exercise, socialise and have fun.
“Arenas like this provide a safe and enjoyable environment for people of all ages and with different levels of experience.”
Kent Sports Trust Foundation CEO Steve Wolfe added: “We’re thrilled to have partnered with Flip Out who share our goal of getting trampolining onto the school curriculum across Medway.
“It’s great that there’s now another place in the county where people can come to have fun, while doing something which is good for their general health and wellbeing.
“Many people don’t realise that jumping on a trampoline for 20 minutes brings the same health benefits as running for an hour.”
Meanwhile, Mark McGill, Director of Flip Out Chatham was looking forward to seeing so many people of Medway and Kent coming to the new attraction:
“I’m thrilled that this unique attraction is now open and ready for people to enjoy.
“To celebrate we’re offering jumpers free trampolining socks until the end of the year.”
You can now book your session to bounce on the Flip Out Chatham website: www.flipout.co.uk/chatham/.
