Reaching new heights

Along with the tons of fun that can be had on the trampolines and sponge pits, they also offer Parkour, Adventure kids and Fitness classes, along with the hosting of birthday parties and teambuilding exercises.
The park has been under the management of Hillétje Honiball and her team since 15 February this year.
As she explains: “The Adventure kids’ class is a development programme that focuses on the fundamentals of gymnastics, hand-eye coordination, balance and overall body and core strength, while having fun at the same time and allowing kids to enjoy themselves to the fullest.”
On the other hand, she says that Parkour is a training discipline using movement that was developed from military obstacle course training. “The aim is to teach kids to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assistive equipment and in the fastest, most efficient and safest way possible. This class focuses on balance, endurance, core strength, bodily orientation and awareness.
“Essentially, our adventure kids programme is targeted towards younger demographics (children aged between 4 and 7), while the Parkour programme is much easier for kids older than 8. However, the ultimate purpose of both programmes is to create confident and tough young individuals and of course, to promote an active lifestyle for your beloved kiddies.”
Why the park?
The idea for the business began with Hillétje’s son, Robert, a gymnast who has represented the country internationally many times. “He has a passion for human movement and health and to him it is very important that especially children keep themselves busy with things that encourage physical development,” she says. “His idea was actually a sport complex that allows for a variety of sport codes.”
Hillétje and her team offer special prices for home schoolers and school groups in the morning from 10:00 to 13:00 and during school holidays. “We also have membership cards that are valid for a month that allow kids to enter the park at a very reasonable price. The team at the park all know how to help kids develop their abilities. We can also make arrangements for classes in the morning,” she says.
