Husband and wife team bring trampoline park to Liversedge

A husband and wife team have invested £1m in the creation of a trampoline centre, set to create 35 jobs for people in the area.

Liversedge-based Adrenaline International, set up by Michael and Debbie Fitzpatrick, features 140 connected trampolines, a giant air-bag, basketball slam-dunk courts, children’s party rooms and an in-house cafe.

Expecting a daily footfall of 700 over the coming months, the centre was created after the entrepreneurial pair grew ‘tired’ of children’s soft play parties and wanted to offer something different.

A £30,000 loan was provided by the Business Enterprise Fund (BEF) to enable the firm to use prismatic trampolines; an interactive light feature for use in games and aerobics classes. 

“We’d spent so long researching and planning our dream business, that we knew it needed to jump out. The Prismatic feature is the perfect finishing touch and we wouldn’t have it without BEF’s support,” said Ms Fitzpatrick. 

Stephen Waud, chief executive at BEF, said: “We were delighted to support Adrenaline International to help achieve Debbie and Michael’s business goals. It’s fantastic to see a different concept bouncing into the Yorkshire area aimed at everyone from toddlers and teenagers, to anyone interested in fitness.

“As a social enterprise, it’s important to us to support unique businesses and creative entrepreneurs, and mainstream lenders are often unable to lend their support here.”
