Flip Out, the UK’s biggest and most popular trampolining brand will have its doors opening in Ashford on Saturday 8 July.

A 28,000 sqft former packaging factory on the Henwood Industrial Estate has been transformed into an exciting and innovative family entertainment centre that is sure to be a great hit with visitors of all ages.

Around £1.5m has been invested by Ashford entrepreneurs Lisa and Steve Wootton to bring the world’s fastest growing trampoline franchise to the town.

The project has created around 60 jobs, with a recruitment policy aimed at employing local people to fill roles including reception and café staff, and safety crew. The team is led by manager Gavin Churchman, himself an Ashford resident.

Steve Wootton said: “We have taken an empty shell of a building and turned it into a fabulous trampolining arena that has to be seen to be believed.

“In the months running up to the opening, we have attracted thousands of followers on social media eager to be a part of what we have created here. I thank them for their patience and look forward to welcoming them all to share in the fun.

“Our aim is simple – we want to give visitors a fantastic experience that will get them coming back for more and our talented and dedicated staff will be key to making that happen. We are delighted to launch the Flip Out revolution in Ashford this summer!” added Steve.   

As well as featuring dozens of connected trampolines that will allow you to spring, trick or flip off the walls, Flip Out Ashford offers stunt boxes, wall runners, slam dunks, dodgeball, an obstacle course, a free running course and plenty of other surprises.

Flip Fit is a programme of regular fitness classes – for ages 15 and over –  which provides an enjoyable way to boost energy, tone and strengthen, and burn up to 1,000 calories per session. Increase your flexibility and balance with a blend of exercises from trampolining and gymnastics, all led by a trained instructor.

There are four rooms for private celebrations, with party packages available for children and adults. Resident DJs will also be in the house and a programme of special events will be announced soon.

A spacious and well-equipped café on the first floor is set to become a popular meeting place for both customers and employees of businesses based on the busy Henwood estate.

Flip Out Ashford is also expected to be a popular choice for companies looking to organise staff team building days and corporate events.
