SOBELL TRAMPOLINE PARK

Inner London’s first trampoline park will finally open this weekend at the Sobell Leisure Centre.

The controversial trampoline park being built at the Sobell Leisure Centre to get more youngsters exercising will cost them as much as £10.50 a go.

The growing list of people opposing the installation of a trampoline park at the Sobell Leisure Centre now includes Islington councillors, Jeremy Corbyn, the granddaughter of Sir Michael Sobell and even trampolinists.

GLL won the contract to run leisure centres in Islington and the recent proposal to build a trampoline park in the Sobell Centre has meant close scrutiny of the contract, writes Tricia Clarke, Yerbury Road, Tufnell Park.

Furious five-a-side players have served Islington Council with a legal notice over the decision to replace their pitches at the Sobell Leisure Centre with a trampoline park.

Footballers have accused the town hall of a lack of transparency after discovering it lent leisure bosses cash to build the trampoline park replacing their five-a-side pitches.

Two sets of protesters teamed up to take on the mighty Islington Council over the loss of their beloved football pitches.

Campaigning five-a-side players have been bounced back in their calls for a “proper” consultation over the installation of a trampoline park at Sobell Leisure Centre.
