8 best trampolines

Keep fit and healthy and have fun this Bank Holiday weekend with our selection of trampolines

Children (and adults) who regularly jump on a trampoline reap a whole host of benefits, according to research – not just the obvious health benefits, but persistence, concentration, muscle control and coordination.

But how do you go about choosing the best trampoline for your needs? The first thing to consider is size. While very small ones can be good for adult fitness or toddlers, the general rule is that 6ft trampolines are ideal for young children and smaller gardens , while 10ft and above are suited to larger gardens and older children and teenagers.

You should also think about accessories. Bear in mind that the majority of accidents happen on trampolines with no enclosures and that a ladder will stop children from jumping off the trampoline, which is another major cause of trampoline accidents. If you plan to use your trampoline all year round, a weather cover and an anchor kit will protect it from the elements.

Think about longevity too, ideally opting for a trampoline with a long guarantee on the frame as these are the hardest parts to replace.

Verdict:

The Springfree Oval Trampoline has a brilliant safety record, but it does come with a very large price tag. The JumpKing JumpPOD Oval is your next best bet – a fabulous all rounder that blends well in a garden and really is built to last and with safety in mind. Still too expensive? Plum is renowned for their high quality outdoor toys and we think their Whirlwind Trampoline is one of the best trampolines available.
