Our team is based in a massive facility providing family activities and a state of the art bouldering walls for all abilities.
The core products are Trampoline, Ninja Course and Clip’n Climb sessions and of course the bouldering wall where we run adult and kids sessions alongside regular open climbing.
We have invested a huge amount in the facilities and in the team and have seen a steady growth in our community since fully opening in 2019.
We are part of the “Flashpoint Group” which have centre’s across the south of the UK. Which means there is a lot of opportunity to grow and collaborate with the other centres.
Our goal is to create a thriving community in which customers and staff are healthy and happy. If this sounds like somewhere you would like to work, read on…
