Scottish trampoline park enters administration

Wed, 27 Jun 2018 | ADMINISTRATION

Air Space Glasgow, Scotland’s first ever trampoline park, has been forced to close its doors after its owners appointed administrators to take over the business.

The £2 million centre, located in the South Lanarkshire town of East Kilbride, opened in 2014 and was considered Europe’s biggest freestyle jumping arena at the time.

The park was later bought by Oxygen Freejumping in 2017, but the owners claimed they failed to revamp and reinstate a consumer interest in the service after purchasing the unit. Following this, the company has also closed down Air Space’s Manchester branch.

CEO of Oxygen Freejumping David Stalker cited “the competitive local leisure market” as the reason for its downfall.

On the statement issued on the Air Space website, the park’s owners stated: “We were unable to rejuvenate our product and as a result our trading performance has become unsustainable and we have no choice but to close and place the respective sites into administration.”

All bookings from 26 June 2018 onwards will be fully refunded by the company.

Oxygen Freejumping has been taken over by new owners, and it is understood that the company will continue to operate.

Graham Simpson, Central Scotland Tory MSP, commented: “As far as I was aware [the park] was popular and ground-breaking at the time it opened. I hope that another viable use can be found for what is a big space.”
