New trampoline park opens in Dudley

'Leap Dudley' has opened its doors, with a capacity of 150 people per hour and the first augmented games wall in the UK.

The centre will have their official launch on 26th October at midday, when local man, Sir Willard Wiggan - famous for his sculptures in the eye of a needle - will officially open the community hub in front of the press and dignitaries.

The centre has a central 'jump' area with over 60 integrated trampolines, a sensory room, children's party rooms and a number of function spaces. At the event, visitors will have the opportunity sample some of their kitchens healthy eating cuisine whilst enjoying seasonal produce at an affordable price. Managing Director, Chris Campbell, said:

"We look at young people who come [to Leap] holistically. We give them healthy food and get them jumping about on trampolines - twenty minutes of trampolining is the equivalent to sixty minutes on a treadmill!

"We also have the first augmented games wall in the UK. It's an immersive experience where you play games, run around, get fit and have fun. What we're trying to do is get young people off games consoles and get them doing something active and where they interact with other young people."

In a recent survey, Dudley was voted the most unhealthy area to live in the UK. Leap Dudley are fighting back against childhood obesity and inactivity amongst young people by offering cutting edge technology which encourages physical activity whilst being immersed in a gaming environment.

The centre is based on Birmingham Road in Dudley and more information can be found at
