Staying Safe

We’re not spoil-sports. We’re not health and safety ‘gone mad’. But we are glad that you’re reading his page. It’s important stuff.

Everyone loves the feeling of defying gravity and mastering new skills (from basic jumps to advanced acrobatics). But we don’t want the risk of injuries to spoil anyone’s fun. Trampolining injuries can occur to all parts of the body, including the neck, arms, legs face and head. Head and neck injuries are the most serious. However, the most common injuries are caused by awkward landings and include sprains or fractures to the wrist, forearm, elbow and collarbone.

The good news is that the vast majority of injuries are entirely preventable.

First thing to say is that trampolining isn't suitable for children under six who aren’t sufficiently physically developed to control their bouncing. Secondly, combining alcohol with trampolining is never a good idea. Finally, whatever your ability level, talk to us about learning new trampolining skills, especially advanced moves such as somersaults.

We’re here to keep you reaching for the sky, safely…

  5. Be aware of those around you

  6. Always avoid contact with others
