A NEW trampoline park will bounce into Salisbury creating 60 new jobs, it has been announced.

Gojumpin has been granted permission to open a trampoline park in Castlegate Business Park, in Old Sarum.

The project will boast an open jump area, for up to 90 jumpers, dodgeball areas, foam pits, tumbletracks, along with a café and conference room.

Within the plans to Wiltshire Council, the company said: “Trampoline Parks are relatively new in the United Kingdom but are rapidly becoming a popular leisure use. There are now over 200 trampoline parks in the UK.

“The venue provides for children to have recreational fun and exercise and for adults of all ages to enjoy as part of a keep fit regime.

“It is a leisure activity which was developed in the United States and is now gaining in popularity in the UK.”

Gojumpin chairman Vernon West confirmed there will be 20 full-time and 46-part time and casual jobs created with the opening of the park.

In a report to the council, he said: “Employees at the Salisbury site will get the opportunity for vocational training at our Slough HQ, as well as classroom-based training, prior to the opening of the Salisbury Arena.

“Training will be tailored according to the needs of the growing company and the skills gaps of the team it has chosen to grow with the business.”

It expected that the trampoline park will be open from 10am-10pm Monday to Friday and 9am-10pm Saturday and Sunday.

The company’s report added: “During the day time the premises will cater for younger pre-school children by providing for toddlers. The late afternoon and early evening during the week day are the most popular times when children are out of school.

“There are no dedicated trampoline parks within or close to Salisbury that could be impacted by the development proposal such that the vitality of the town centre would be compromised.”
