The trampoline sessions are being added to Tamworth Community Safety Partnership’s Summerwatch events to promote safety and crime prevention over the summer months, which is funded by the Staffordshire Police & Crime Commissioner’s Space scheme.
Summerwatch is being run by the Tamworth Community Safety Partnership, which includes Tamworth Borough Council, Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service, domestic abuse groups, drug & alcohol counselling services and the Clinical Commissioning Group.
A wide range of free activities aimed at 11-17 year olds have been running throughout the summer and will continue up until September 2.
Now, with two weeks left to go until the end of the summer holidays, Summerwatch has added free trampoline sessions at the new Jump Xtreme centre in Wilnecote to the free programme.
The centre has 115 interlinked trampolines and includes main court with 95 trampolines, dodge ball court, Xtreme stunt airbag, tumble tracks and slam dunk hoops.
Entry to the centre is free on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 5pm and 6pm to 11-17 year-olds. There are 30 free places each night, which are available on a first come, first served basis. Please quote SPACE on arrival for free entry.
Other activities running throughout Tamworth as part of the Summerwatch scheme are:
- Boxing sessions at the Cornerpost Gym for boys and girls aged 11-17
- Retro arcade games at Namco Funscape Bowling
- Ten-pin bowling
- Football and other fun sports run by Burton Albion Community Trust at Street Stadia in four venues throughout Tamworth
More information on the dates, times and places of all the Space activities taking place in Tamworth can be found on the Space website at www.staffordshirespace.uk.
Cllr Stephen Doyle, Cabinet Member for Communities and Wellbeing, said, “Jump Xtreme has only been open a few weeks and is already proving to be hugely popular, so I am delighted that we have been able to add it to our Summerwatch programme, thanks to funding from the Staffordshire Police & Crime Commissioner’s Space project.”
