A TRAFFORD company is jumping for joy after scooping two coveted awards at the North West Entrepreneur Awards.

Jump Nation, based in Trafford Park, was named ‘Start-up Company of the Year’ and ‘Leisure Company of the Year’ at an awards ceremony at the Mere Golf Resort and Spa on October 21.

The double win tops off a successful first year for the business, which saw 260,000 jumpers through the door and a £2.5million turnover.

Jump Nation, Europe’s largest trampoline, offers one hour bounce sessions for children and adults, as well as fitness classes and parties.

Michelle Ball, co-founder and director of Jump Nation, said: “We’re incredibly proud of these awards and humbled to be amongst such well-respected businesses from the region.

“To be recognised in this way is a true reflection on how hard our team has worked to get the business started planning, through to welcoming our first visitors on the trampolines.

“It doesn’t stop here though; we’re an ambitious team and have exciting expansion plans ahead.”
