Fancy a high-flying career that’s guaranteed to put a spring in your step?

Sunderland’s first trampoline park opens soon at the Sunrise Enterprise Park and now the company behind it is hiring.

Gravity Force managing director Richard Simpson said: “We secured planning permission for the 24,355 sqft site towards the end of 2015 and have been working hard with our park development team to transform what has previously been an industrial warehouse into the ultimate adventure playground.

“The park will feature one of the UK’s largest main courts, with over 60 interconnected trampolines, two giant tumble tracks, two basketball slam dunk lanes, three performance trampolines, our new video/photo booth trampoline, a huge pit containing over 5,000 
cubes of cushiony soft foam and an extreme dodgeball court.

“There will also be a fully featured cafe with a mezzanine overlooking the courts.

“Sunderland is set to be one of our most innovative and exciting parks. We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing a huge new sporting facility to the local community that can be used by all participants of all ages.”

Gravity Force already runs a trampoline park in Camberley, Surrey, and Richard, who is confident the new Wearside centre will be a hit.

“We have done a lot of research into the demographics of the area and we think there will be a lot of demand for a facility like this,” he said.

“There is one in Durham but there is nothing like it in the Sunderland, Newcastle or Gateshead areas, so we think there is real capacity for it.”

The new trampoline park will generate up to 40 jobs on Wearside and Gravity Force is now recruiting.

“We’re taking online applications for Sunderland and interviews will take place toward the end of January,” said Richard.
