Our amazing range of trampolines is certain to make you and your children happy about playing outdoors. Indeed, as a sport, trampolining has been popular over the past 15 years – mostly at home in the garden. But with the arrival of the indoor trampoline parks in the last few years – it’s become a hugely popular. It makes for an exciting and fun day out and often a great idea for your children’s birthday party. Still not sure? That’s normal as you need to make the right choice, so let’s check out a few key points to consider before buying a trampoline.
1. How to choose the best trampoline for your garden
Rather than travel to a trampoline park, why not have one of your own in the garden? There are a huge range of different models to choose from. There are lots of different sizes available and although they may seem similar, they differ in strength and durability, as well as ‘bouncability’. Regardless of the shape and size of your garden, you’re sure to find a model that will suit your needs. There are a lot of different trampolines to choose from, so we’ve provided some helpful information for you to consider before making your choice.
2. How do you choose the best trampoline model to suit your family?
With a wide range of models to choose from, here are a few things you might consider. Trampolines are available from 6 feet diameter to 16 feet in size. We recommend that you allow for approximately 2m of space all around the outside of your trampoline. You’ll need to consider the size of your garden and the space you have available. How many children do you have? You can bet that they will all want to bounce on it together – so make sure that the model you choose provides adequate space for them to bounce safely. What age are your children? Small children being small and light, won’t need as much room, and the lower spring strength will make it easier for them to bounce higher. Older children will prefer the bigger models – because there’s more room to do back flips, play dodgeball and somersaults. They will also prefer the models with the stronger springs – they provide more bounce for big kids and adults.
3. Here is some important info you should know before choosing your trampoline
Better quality trampolines have galvanised metal parts and springs. This means that they last much longer than those that don’t. For safety, the better quality models have thicker padding to cover the metal parts and bars – to prevent bumps and bruises. Every model we supply uses the galvanised, long lasting parts and as safety is our top priority – you’ll find extra deep padding too. Please see the individual models for full info. The more springs that are included, the stronger the trampoline. Our larger models are designed with older children and adults in mind and are suitable for several children to play on in safety.

9. What is a waiver?
If you have ever been to one of the big trampoline park for parties, you’ll already know that they will ask parents or guardians to read their info and sign a waiver book before the children are allowed in to play on the trampolines. Ever wonder why? A waiver is a document that you sign to confirm that you understand the risks of injury and safety that exist. You are stating that you understand and that if a child becomes injured through horseplay or bad behaviour – you may not claim damages on the business insurance. If you have hired a bouncy castle for your garden events, you will have had to sign one too.
