KRTC Past and Present

Our Heritage

Kirklees Rebound Trampoline Club was founded in 1974, the year after Huddersfield Sports Centre was first opened and has been situated within the Sports Centre ever since.

The founder members were Barry Peaker, Peter Barker, Janet Howard and June Wellick. Barry Peaker has been the Head Coach since it's inception and continues to lead the Club today.


Since 1974 the Club has developed from a small recreational team to a highly competitive club with a number of accolades to its name.


In 2000, Barry Peaker was awarded British Trampoline Federation (BTF) Coach of the Year, which honoured his dedication to the sport and his ability to develop elite performers.
