Trampolining and Teen Trampolining

Trampolining is fun and is an exciting sport, requiring strength, fitness, coordination and balance. Our classes focus on teaching safety and good control on the trampolines.  Children progress through a certificate program which ensures they have the basic competencies required before moving into more difficult skills such as somersaults. We take a maximum of 8 per group, working between 2 big trampolines and a double mini tramp. 

Socks need to be worn at all times on the trampolines.

New this year, we have a dedicated trampoline class for teens – no previous experience required!

The Lifetimers Leisure Club provides activities to help enrich and empower the lives of adults’ aged 50+.

The Club is operated by the Community Recreation staff of the Porirua City Council based at the Te Rauparaha Arena.

Full and half day trips give you the opportunity to explore, investigate and enjoy the Greater Wellington, Manawatu and Wairarapa regions.

We offer a range of outings 2 - 3 times month, either to places you haven't been to for a while or to hidden gems that you are yet to discover.

Recent outings have included gardens, historical sites, exhibitions, sanctuaries, "Operatunity shows", ferry trips and "Big Walks". Quite often we find an extra few minutes to hunt down a cafe for a cuppa and a bite to eat.

Plus, we regularly do evening outings for a night at the theatre, a ballet, or a musical. Travel to and from the venue by chartered bus means no parking hassles and a chance to chat with each other about the highlights afterwards.
