WELCOME TO THE UK IATP

The work of the IATP in the UK is led by the UK Sub-committee which was established in 2015 by a group of industry leaders who quickly recognised the need for the indoor trampoline park industry to have representation in the UK.

The group has focused upon raising safety and training standards, improving the profile of the industry and highlighting the positive contribution that trampoline parks make to the mental and physical health of society.

With the COVID pandemic and ever-changing situation this work has never been more important and the IATP is leading lobbying efforts and communication with local authorities, the UK Government and leading agencies to ensure the voice of the industry is heard. We would encourage all parks in the UK to join the IATP and contribute to this work and ensuring our voice is heard as a single unified industry.

The current members of the UK IATP sub-committee are:

  • Chair – Harvey Jenkinson, CEO, Gravity Leisure Ltd
  • Vice-Chair – Nick Booth, CEO, Continental Sports Ltd
  • Gavin Lucas – CEO, Go Jump In
  • Shaun Wilkinson, Director, PlayHouse Ltd
  • Simon Wilkinson, Managing Director, Boost Trampoline Parks and Absorb Support
  • Darren Hedges, Founder, AirHop
  • Peter Brown, Managing Director, Circus Trix UK & Europe.
  • Cliff Nicholls, Director, Jump Xtreme.

National and International Standards for Indoor Trampoline Parks

BSI PAS 5000: 2017

In April 2017 the British Standards Institute published the Publically Available Standard (PAS) 5000:2017 for Fixed Indoor Trampoline Parks. This document sets out the minimum standards for the design, construction, and operation of trampoline parks.

The PAS was sponsored by the IATP and written by a working group that included RoSPA, British Gymnastics, The Health and Safety Executive, Environmental Health Officers, Constructors, Insurers, and Operators.

The IATP believes that the PAS 5000 is a very positive step forward in making the Trampoline Park Industry in the UK safer for users and in providing guidance for those involved in the industry. The IATP recommends that all those involved in trampoline parks should be working to these standards as a minimum and from August 2018 requires all UK members to commit to working to these standards.

CEN / ISO

Since 2018 The UK IATP has been part of the BSI Expert panel working on the current CEN/ISO project developing a new international standard for Trampoline Parks based on the BSI PAS 5000. The first draft of the new standard was been published for public comment in June and has now closed with all participating countries submitting their comments and votes accordingly. These will now be considered by the project committee.

BSI PAS 5000 Certification

UK IATP park members are strongly recommended to hold a certificate of compliance to PAS 5000:2017 (parts 4 and 5) not older than 36 months.* This can be issued by an approved IATP Inspection body - a list of inspection bodies can be downloaded below. All parks providing a valid certificate will become IATP certified BSI compliant members.
For 2021 membership, parks still working towards certification can also join the IATP as regular park members with a commitment to gaining BSI PAS 5000 compliance.

*Please note that due to the COVID pandemic certificates issued between 23rd March 2017 and 19th May 2021 must be no older than 48 months.
