Fun Abounds Trampoline Centre is opening its doors to visitors on Sunday (October 27) as it celebrates its tenth anniversary.
More than 5,000 members have stepped through the doors since the centre was launched on October 24, 2009.
There have been many changes in the intervening years with a wide range of opportunities to engage everyone in healthy sporting activities.
The youngest members attend an ever-popular parent and toddler session, there are Mini Fun n Bound sessions for children up to four years old, and more fun classes for older children.
In addition there are sessions for adults and for those with special educational needs.
There are classes too for elite gymnasts with representation in England and Great Britain teams.
Fun Abounds is run by the charity Sky High Trampoline Gymnastics Academy and is a non-profit organisation.
Founding members Stella and Mike Jackson, and Gail Andrews wanted to introduce their passion for trampoline, double-mini trampoline, and tumbling gymnastics into a dedicated facility to increase the accessibility of the sport to the local community and wider areas.
Gail said: “My hope is that over ten years we have impacted lots of people’s lives positively, by increasing confidence, and self-esteem and enabling the to become physically and emotionally healthier.”
Activities planned to celebrate the anniversary include:
- Fun and games
- Fresh food
- Use of the gymnastics equipment and trampolines
- Chocolate tombola
- Hoop the jar
- Pie your coach
- Teddy Tombola
