Founded by dadpreneurs Vernon West and Gavin Lucas together with mumpreneur Linda Willaford-West, Jump In is a leading UK leisure and recreational activities business. Jump In has three indoor trampoline arenas in Slough, Tonbridge and Warwick and offers jumping, fitness and free-running classes as well as jumping sessions for kids and adults.
Jump In is powered by Altitude, a leading international trampoline park operator with multiple sites across the US as well as arena development in Japan, UAE, South Africa and India.
Jump In will use the new funding package to boost their site opening programme over the next 12 to 18 months, including 3 new arenas in Enfield, Aberdeen, and Poole that are expected to open early in 2017 together with potential further additions in London, Harrogate, Edinburgh, and Crawley.
