Back in late 2012 Jump Zone opened it’s doors in Sandyford, Co. Dublin, Ireland. The business, the first of it’s kind in Ireland and Europe is 20,000 sq ft, kitted out in trampolines. Since it’s opening, Jump Zone has become extremely popular in the South Dublin area, so much so, that another Jump Zone is due to open this week in Santry, North Co. Dublin. Via The Journal:
DUBLIN TRAMPOLINE ENTREPRENEURS Daniel Begley and Paul Quinn will open a second ‘Jump Zone’ in Santry this month, resulting in over 60 new hires at the company.
The new 35,000 square foot facility represents an investment of more €1.3 million and will feature two dodgeball courts and Europe’s first ‘foam pit’. It will overtake the pair’s Sandyford site as the company’s flagship operation.
Jump Zone is understood to be at an advanced stage of discussions on franchising the operation to Wales and Spain, with expressions of interest also arriving from other parts of the UK, France and Holland.
Since opening its doors in 2012, the original Jump Zone in Sandyford has clocked over 100,000 customers and accommodates dodgeball competitions, fitness classes and children’s parties.
This is fantastic news for the business owners and for the sport of gymnastics and trampolining in Ireland.
