Choosing the right sized trampoline for you
How To Choose The Right Sized Trampoline.
One question asked before every family decides on a trampoline -
What size Trampoline is right for our family and our backyard?
Varying sized trampolines are for different areas, family size, ages and weight. Below are the different sizes we offer and where and when they are the best choice for individuals to make a more informed decision. Also keep in mind that a trampoline is a long term back yard investment and thinking ahead is important in regards of your child’s weight and increased social interaction at home, friends, cousins etc
8ft & 10ft Trampolines: If you are looking to buy your kids a trampoline but don’t have a large area, then an 8 or 10ft trampoline is probably the best choice for you. These smaller trampolines are perfect for a small backyard / courtyard or families with smaller children. Remember though you should only ever have one child on an 8 or 10ft trampoline at a time. In such a small space it is probable that they will jump into each another and could hurt each other. The 8ft trampoline is also lower to the ground so weight is also an issue so just check that before your final decision.
12ft Trampolines: Perfect for most families with say 2 kids they don't take up too much space but you can safely have larger children or young adults bouncing on them without too many dramas. 2 small kids can be on it together or older kids one at a time still.
14 & 15ft Trampolines: These big trampolines “Entertainers” as we call them are the trampoline of trampolines! These are the trampolines everyone gets if they have the money and the surplus yard area. They are by sheer size safer, more fun and you can have more than one child/person on at a time. If you have a larger family or your kids are all 10 and up then this is the trampoline for you. Great value too if your kids are sociable and have friends over regularly as a trampoline will entertain them beautifully for hours!
7x10ft Rectangle Trampoline is a very nice small rectangle trampoline, ideal to pop in between the cubby and swing set or garden shed. Nice and compact and similar application as to the round 8 or 10ft trampoline. 1 child at a time rule should apply. Can be built into the ground easily.
8x12ft Rectangle Trampoline – great trampoline with very good bounce for kids up to 12/13 years of age. If they are into Gymnastics this is the most common trampoline for juniors to be using to practice their routines. A better bounce is common on a rectangle trampoline compared to say a 12ft round trampoline due to one side being a shorter in length. Is ideal to be tucked into a corner or as an in ground trampoline.
8x14ft Rectangle Trampoline – We had this trampoline made for the kids that do Gymnastics but find the 8x12 a little too short to round out their flips and therefore land on the pads not on the trampoline mat. The extra 2 foot makes a significant difference without compromising on the bounce too much. This trampoline has ample room for 2 kids at a time up into their teens. This trampoline is a much stronger design than the other 2 smaller rectangle trampolines having a much thicker frame and pads.
10x17ft Olympic Size Rectangle Trampoline, You do need a big back yard for this one and really not suitable for toddlers unless you are really aware that they will not get a good bounce out of this until they are 8/9 years old; better suited to older kids. If comparing to a true gymnastics trampoline with the 2 string woven mat then this trampoline isn’t as bouncy. Kids would need to be about 65-70kg to get the height to do a double somersault. More suited to the tumble mat and single flip routines more commonly done. Excellent trampoline for general family use and self invented ball games.
14x16ft Rectangle Trampoline, it is getting close to being a square and is a great size to make a big statement. We have 4 teenagers and this is the trampoline we have taking over our backyard. It is a well used trampoline even though the kids are ages 15-19+. It is a great space for soccer, and wrestling and for a good old game of jumping tag. It is the neighbourhood magnet as well so be prepared to have the extras jumping over the fence to have a bounce too! Well over 200kg this trampoline is not moved to mow under – drop the mower handles and under you go!
Be sure to instil trampoline safety considerations as priority to your kids regardless of whichever size trampoline you decide to purchase, making sure that you teach your kids how to play safely on a trampoline will reduce the injuries and severity.
