Entrepreneurs Lisa and Steve Wootton are investing £1.5 million to launch Flip Out.

The Ashford arena, which is expected to create up to 60 jobs, will be the first Flip Out to open in East Kent.

Mr and Ms Wootton, who live in Kingsnorth, are transforming a 28,000sqft former packaging factory on Ashford’s Henwood Industrial Estate to provide a leisure experience for all ages and abilities.

As well as featuring dozens of connected trampolines that will allow you to spring, trick or flip off the walls, Flip Out Ashford will have stunt boxes, wall runners, slam dunks, dodgeball, a Ninja warriors course, and fitness classes.

There will be four party rooms for private celebrations and corporate functions. They also plan to develop a café on the second floor which they hope will become a popular meeting place for the local community and businesses. Free parking will be provided for more than 100 vehicles.

“We’re very excited to be bringing the Flip Out trampolining revolution to Ashford,” says Ms Wootton. “Having often taken our two boys to trampoline parks, we wanted to launch our own venue that would be fun, healthy entertainment not just for kids but for the whole family. It’s also perfect for couples, groups, and companies looking for a team-building experience with a difference.”

Mr Wootton adds: “Ashford is the perfect place for East Kent’s first Flip Out. The town is growing rapidly and going through some dynamic changes and we want to be part of that exciting future.

“It’s also our home patch and there’s nothing like this here at the moment. We think Ashford deserves to be part of the Flip Out phenomenon.”

Work on the site is scheduled to start within the next three weeks and the couple anticipate opening their doors in early 2017.
