Jump Street, Malaysia's First and Asia's Biggest Indoor Trampoline Park Official Launch

Earlier this month, Jump Street, Malaysia's first and Asia's biggest indoor trampoline park has officially opened with the presence of our Minister of Youth and Sports, Malaysia, YB En. Khairy Jamaluddin.
During the official launch, the Jump Street Trampoline Park and the Malaysian Gymnastics Federation (MGF) had sealed a first-of-its-kind public-private-partnership (PPP) agreement aimed at identifying and developing athletic talent in an effort to build Malaysia's first trampoline team and to help them qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The agreement was signed between Tn Hj. Razak Mat Amin, President of the Malaysian Gymnastics Federation and Mr. Duncan McGilligan, CEO of Jump Street Malaysia Sdn Bhd and witnessed by YB En Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Youth and Sports, Malaysia.
Before the signing of the agreement, Mr. McGilligan started the event with a speech:
He said that "Jump Street is about making fitness fun. By doing so, it is our intention to play a role in meeting the Government's aspiration of instilling a sports culture amongst Malaysians."

He also added that "As more and more Malaysian's become attracted to trampolining there is a growing and ready pool of potential talent MGF can tap into. Moreover, we are on track towards opening a total of five trampoline parks across Malaysia and even more across South East Asia in the very near future. We hope to see trampolining become as popular as football or badminton here in Malaysia."

Right after Mr. Duncan McGilligan's speech, Tn Hj. Razak Mat Amin, President of the Malaysian Gymnastics Federation followed suit:
He said that since trampolining became an Olympic sport in 2000, many nations have started to develop their own trampoline team. "Moreover, trampolining in itself is also an activity that can help any athletes, regardless of the sports discipline. Many may not realize that jumping on the trampoline helps build balance, coordination, stamina and strength. All these elements are integral towards creating Malaysian athletes that will be world class," he explained.

YB En. Khairy Jamaluddin gave a speech afterwards:
