Trampoline Safety Rules

    To ensure safe trampolining for all the family, please follow these Safety Rules.
  • 1. Use the trampoline only under mature, knowledgeable supervision.
  • 2. Inspect the trampoline before each use. This includes the frame assembly and the springs. Tears in the jumping bed can quickly grow and become un-repairable if continually used.
  • 3. DO NOT allow more than one person on the trampoline at a time.
  • 4. DO NOT attempt stunts. Somersaults and other dangerous maneuvers can cause serious injury or death, even if you land in the middle of the bed. If you wish to take your trampolining skills further, consider joining a local club.
  • 5. DO NOT jump off the trampoline. Always climb on and off the trampoline.
  • 6. Avoid jumping too high.
  • 7. DO NOT use your trampoline when feeling ill, tired, when using medication or under influence of alcohol.
  • 8. Protect your trampoline from unsupervised use. Removing the ladder can stop a young child climbing on to the trampoline whilst unattended.
  • 9. Only use your trampoline when the surface of the bed is dry.
  • 10. Read the manufacturers instructions before using the trampoline
  • 11.Put the Trampoline on a flat surface.
  • 12. Provide at least 4 ft (1.22 m) clearance around all sides.
  • 13. Always supervise.
  • 14. Never go underneath the Trampoline when someone else is jumping.
  • 15. No animals on the trampoline.
  • 16. No toys or furniture on the trampoline while jumping - any new object introduced to the trampoline could potentially be another 'hard surface' and could result in injury by impact.
  • 17. No somersaults - untrained jumpers run the risk of landing awkwardly.

Trampoline Safety Tips

Ensure that the trampoline you buy is manufactured to both the US (ASTM) and the EU (TUV) standard. Another great resource on trampoline safety is the trampoline safety fact sheet provided by RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents). Next it is important to learn how to a) use it safely and b) where is the best place to put it. After all, there are many potential hazards that can occur when using a trampoline. These include falling off the trampoline, landing improperly while trampolining or even falling off the trampoline. Purchasing suitable trampoline safety equipment, taking your children to trampolining lessons or courses and ensuring there is a responsible adult supervising them at all times are all ways that you can help ensure that they can enjoy their trampoline and help avoid accidents or injuries. According to the RoSPA trampoline safety fact sheet 75% of injuries occur when more than one person is on the trampoline. Remove the ladder after use so that young children can't get onto the trampoline on their own. Ensure your children are supervised at all times when they are bouncing on trampolines. Even better check out our comprehensive list of Trampolining Clubs across the UK so that your children can practice their more advanced trampolining moves under professional supervision. If you know of any clubs not listed on the page please let us know.
17. Rebounding is enjoyable! People who rebound find they are able to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous. The effect is not just psychological, because the action of bouncing up and down against gravity effectively stimulates the lymphatic system without trauma to the musculoskeletal system. This unique discovery is central to the reasons Rebounding has become one of the most beneficial forms of exercise ever developed.
