A spotlight on the entrepreneurs who are creating new, unique events to Charlotte. Meet the team behind Sky High Sports!
Meet the Sky High Sports team that's bringing locals health, wellness and fun. They are the one stop shop trampoline park that’s changing the game by adding laser tag to their arsenal of experiences! The team behind Sky High Sports is Terry (owner), Aaron, Carolyn and Tripp, who have been providing fun to the Charlotte community since November 2014. Terry says her family made the purchase because they were looking for a small business opportunity that would focus on health, wellness and a good time for any age.
Lending a Hand to the Community
According to Terry, they wanted to provide meaningful employment for people looking for an interactive experience, and what’s more interactive than trampoline dodgeball! She wanted working at Sky High Sports to be more than just another job, she wanted it to be an opportunity to help. Whether working at Sky High sports was a first job or a summer internship, Terry and her team were focused on lending a hand to the community.
Favorite Sky High Sports Experience
When asking Terry about her favorite experience they offer she said, “There are so many wonderful experiences at Sky High Sports but I am thrilled to have opened Fort 485 Tactical Laser Tag inside Sky High Sports. I like to describe it as a paintball arena that we moved inside!” And we’d have to agree with her. During our photo shoot the team jumped for a while while our photographer Robert broke the ice, and once we got into the laser tag arena there was nothing but fun and showing off their skills. Beware...there are plenty of zombies and toxic waste barrels scattered around the room for paintballers to hide behind. And just in case you try to cheat, they have motion sensored lights and noise machines, nowhere is safe!
