TRAMPOLINISTS are jumping for joy after finding a new home for their club, and receiving a £50,000 grant to secure their future.

Dimensions Trampoline Club, in Earls Colne, has been saved from possible closure and handed a second lifeline for its tenth birthday.

When the Covid pandemic hit, Dimensions was forced to temporarily close along with other clubs and societies.

However, as restrictions lifted, and the club was looking forward to welcoming back members, it faced an uncertain future when their previous premises could no longer accommodate them.

As things reached a worrying level, Earls Colne Recreation Club came to the rescue, offering Dimensions the space they needed to start up again.

Despite the space being available, there was only room to store two of their six trampolines, so sessions had to be limited, and any chance of welcoming new members was put on hold.

The news got better for the club, after it received a £50,000 grant from the Sport England Return to Play fund.

Dimensions has since been able to build a new purpose-built storage cupboard to hold all six trampolines and equipment, and now has everything needed to be at full capacity.

The club celebrated its tenth birthday last month and was also able to hold its first club competition in three years, giving junior members their first experience of competing before they take part in regional and national competitions.

Head coach Claire Carse said: “The new cupboard gives us easy access to our trampolines and equipment. It means we can expand the number of sessions we have available, have more members jumping for longer, and welcome new members to the club.

“It really does secure the club’s future, and I’d like to thank Sport England and Earls Colne Recreation Club for their support.”
