ESPN showcasing the Ultimate Dodgeball Championship

UDC Instagram & Facebook

Sky Zone is having a media moment.

In addition to the brand making its big screen movie debut in Bad Moms Christmas this week, Sky Zone’s Ultimate Dodgeball Championship is being featured on ESPN’s national TV schedule tomorrow night (Sunday, November 5th).

The 2017 semi-final and final matches will be showcased in a 1-hour special on ESPN2 and the ESPN app tomorrow at 8 PM EST.

Last year ESPN showed UDC content via online video, and this year the coverage was upgraded to primetime.

Congrats to the athletes who make the UDC matches so much fun to watch!  And thanks to the Sky Zone team members who put so much work into bringing UDC to life.

Bad Moms jump at Sky Zone


I can’t wait to see this movie.

Because it’s going to be funny? Yes.

And because it’s Sky Zone‘s theatrical debut.

The first Bad Moms was a hit. The sequel opens in theaters this week. The original bad moms are joined by by their own mothers, played by Cheryl Hines, Christine Baranski and Susan Sarandon.

You can catch a peek of the characters’ visit to Sky Zone at 1:33 and 1:57 in the trailer above.

Check out the film at a theater near you this month. I’d be curious to hear what you think of the movie and the Sky Zone scene.

Meanwhile, if you’re interested, here are a couple article sharing insights about the comedy.

The Sky Zone story and CNN video

Inc. Top 10 Fastest Growing Companies in L.A.

I’ve been meaning to write more about Sky Zone ever since changing jobs in December.

Lucky for me, CNN recently shot a video that provides a great overview of the company, including one of the most interesting parts of the Sky Zone story:  how it started with one idea then pivoted to another, creating a new category of out-of-home entertainment in the process.


This entertainment category — indoor trampoline parks — is expanding quickly.

Sky Zone, by far the largest player in the market, was just named to Inc.’s Top 10 Fastest Growing Companies in Los Angeles (and #273 on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S.).

Sky Zone and other competitors are opening parks around the world. E.g., Sky Zone recently announced park openings in Saudi Arabia. A recent Bloomberg article highlights this expansion.

Here are 3 more videos to help introduce the company and what it stands for.

The brand manifesto:


Some of the activities inside our parks:


Dodgeball is one of the most popular activities. It’s played year-round inside the parks — pick-up games, within events & parties, and some local tournaments. However, the biggest event is our international competition, Ultimate Dodgeball Championship:


If you haven’t visited a Sky Zone yet, I hope you have the chance to check it out. Jumping isn’t just a lot of fun, but a great workout, too.  If you do, please let me know your thoughts.
