Active Nation takes over troubled trampoline park

Leisure operator Active Nation has taken over the operations at Jump Factory, a trampoline park in Basingstoke which ran into financial difficulties earlier this year.

Jump Factory began trading in February 2016, offering a range of trampoline facilities to a variety of age groups.

Problems with the business began to emerge in early 2018, however, as a result of the "seasonality of the business and increased competition", according to its directors.

Business rescue specialist Begbies Traynor were appointed joint administrators of Jump Factory on July 17.

Shortly after, Active Nation acquired the trampolines and other equipment – which were designed specifically for the site in Basingstoke – and officially re-opened the facilities at the existing site on 1 August 2018.

Active Nation has now rebranded the site and it will be operated under its new name, Atmosphere.

A registered charity, Active Nation operates a number of leisure facilities on behalf of local authorities across England.
