The world's first female-only trampoline park might have only just opened in Saudi Arabia, but Bounce Middle East has plans to continue expanding across the Middle East.

The trampoline park and entertainment group has 21,368 square metres of space across its seven venues, which includes its new Riyadh park and another spot at Dubai International Airport. The company plans to triple that figure in two years.

In 2019, it will open parks in Beirut, Dubai and Muscat, while construction is also under way on venues in Bahrain, Al Khobar and a second space in Riyadh. It aims to be present in seven countries by 2020.

Bounce opened its first venue in Dubai in 2014. Now, the trampoline park, freestyle activity hub and "ninja training academy" also has spaces in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Jeddah, Doha and Riyadh.

Doran Davies, chief executive of Bounce Middle East, said: "The entertainment sector is largely underserved across the region, which represents a huge opportunity for our platform.

"Expansion into Africa and East Asia is also on the cards for us at a later date. We're also in the construction stage for two venues of our new Zero Latency concept – the world's first free-roam fully immersive virtual reality platform for the region.

"We continually enhance our product by offering new innovation like free run, the world's largest cage football, zip lines and we're the leading innovator in the Ninja Warrior space with our X-Park Challenge course."
