Indoor Trampoline Park Finance & Leasing
Over the past few years, trampoline parks have become a booming business in the UK. Fuelled by the demand of an increasingly fun-loving and fitness-focused generation (see this video on BBC News about the fitness benefits), and with a working business model from the US, more and more indoor trampoline parks are popping up across the country.
This sector has great returns for anyone looking to invest in the industry. Each centre is always very busy, with bookings in advance, an easy-to-manage premises for staff, and proving to be cash-generating from day one.
We’ve already heard from property developers saying they are getting inundated with requests for new sites.
What can I finance?
Trampoline parks come with a wide variety of equipment, and we can help you get funding for all of the following (and more):
- Trampoline beds (flat and angled)
- Foam pits
- Rest zones
- Junior zones
- Dodgeball court/Slam-dunk basketball hoops
- Sound/DV systems
On top of all of that specialist kit, we can also help you get finance for catering facilities, furniture, HVAC (heating, fans and air conditioning) systems, and anything else your premises needs to get setup.
Can I lease a trampoline?
Yes! Leasing is an incredibly tax-efficient form of financing your trampoline park, which often requires no deposit, with fixed payments over a fixed term, and is 100% tax-deductible. Forget huge capital costs, venture capital, or risking adverse bank loans. Leasing allows you to pay for state-of-the-art indoor trampoline equipment over the period of the kit’s lifespan from your working capital.
“…banks are still wary of lending against health and fitness property.”
