NFL PLAYER TO BRING TRAMPOLINE FRANCHISE TO HIS HOMETOWN
Torrey Smith may be a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, but he wants to bring his love for physical fitness all the way across the country to his hometown.
The NFL player, who graduated from Stafford High School, is opening a Sky Zone Trampoline Park franchise in Fredericksburg’s Central Park this summer.
Located at 1410 Central Park Blvd., the 20,000-square-foot trampoline arena will feature open jumping as well as trampoline basketball, dodge ball and a trampoline-based aerobics class.
Smith said he wants to bring a Sky Zone arena to Fredericksburg “so people, kids and teens can have something to do that’s fun—so much fun they don’t realize they’re working out.”
“I’m very much a big kid,” he said, noting that he still loves playing dodge ball at Sky Zone.
Smith said he will host a grand opening ceremony at the Fredericksburg Sky Zone location.
“For me, it’s simple,” he said. “It’s something else to do … For high schoolers, the options are limited unless you play basketball or football and have an arena or a field to spend time. You don’t have to be an athlete to go have fun.”
