Wycombe Wanderers swapped the training pitch for Rush trampoline park on Tuesday morning, putting their players through assault courses, balance beams, foam pit relay races and football darts at the complex in High Wycombe.
The latest in a series of development days organised by manager Gareth Ainsworth and his staff, this event saw the Chairboys team up with one of their newest and most local partners for a fun-filled series of activities, testing physical attributes with a typically competitive edge to the day.
Kicking off with a yoga session on the trampolines, led by Rush’s personal trainer Jo Edwards, the squad embarked on various exercises which included attempting to knock each other off a balance beam, racing to the top of a series of pylons and swimming through a pit of foam cubes.
Ainsworth said: “We’d like to say a massive thank you to Sam Williams, the chief operating officer at Rush, and Jo for having us here and putting on this session for us. Hopefully we can give something back by making the Wycombe fans aware of what a fantastic facility it is.
“What I wanted was some team spirit and togetherness from an already tight group, and that’s exactly what we got. This day was planned before Saturday’s game, so win lose or draw so we were always going to come here, and it’s great to come here in high spirits off the back of a victory and hopefully we can bounce into another win against Coventry on Saturday.
“These development days are important for us, whether they’re physical activity, educational or team-building, and this one wasn’t easy for the boys – it’s quite a workout! It’s all key to what we do as a team and we were delighted to be able to come here.”
