Here are some criteria that are important to find the right trampoline.

What is the appropriate size of a trampoline?

For the choice of size are two factors important: safety and fun. For both, a certain amount of surface area is important.
As a rule, the bigger the trampoline the better it is, i.e. the bigger the trampoline, the more safety and the more fun.
As jumpers get older, the size of the trampoline becomes more important. For teenagers, a trampoline must have a diameter of more than 4 meters, otherwise the available surface offers too little safety.
For preschoolers, a round trampoline with a diameter of 3m or 3.6m is definitely a useful piece of play equipment for a few years. However, at the age of 10-12 years at the latest, we strongly recommend purchasing a trampoline with a diameter of more than 4 meters for safety reasons.

What shape should the trampoline be?

Round trampolines are most common in recreational use because the shape is the easiest to jump on and you are always carried slightly towards the center when jumping. With round trampolines, the construction is simpler and cheaper than square trampolines. The round shape is a good choice in most cases.
Rectangular trampolines have optimal jumping characteristics, but also require more skill and discipline. Due to the fact that the jumping mat on the rectangular trampoline is very narrow, exact jump planning and implementation is required so that you land precisely on the jumping mat again. Rectangular trampolines are very demanding and require respect and consideration!
Square trampolines have similar jumping characteristics as rectangular trampolines. However, control on the jumping surface is easier because there is much more space in all four directions. Due to the complex construction, square trampolines are more expensive than round ones and are usually found only in the quality sector. These trampolines are especially appreciated by demanding jumpers.

Cost quality device and cheap trampoline:

Our experience shows that the buyer of a quality trampoline and the buyer of a cheap trampoline spend about the same amount of money on trampolining over the next 10 years. The buyer of a quality trampoline at the time of purchase and the buyer of the cheap trampoline over time. The difference is that the owner of the quality trampoline will have more fun and less hassle over time. As a rule of thumb, it can be assumed that trampoline fun with a 4m trampoline costs approximately CHF 150.- to CHF 200.- per year. This makes trampolining a very inexpensive leisure activity compared to other leisure and sports activities.
