Trampoline in Britain | Add Free Entry

England: Bath | Shropshire | Surrey |

Trampolines have enjoyed a renaissance lately and now they are a fairly common site in the suburban garden. But trampolining is about far more than bouncing around in the garden, it’s a serious competitive sport! Gymnasts use the trampoline as part of their display. They can be see performing skilled and graceful acrobatics while bouncing on the trampoline. As of January 1, 1999, trampoline became a discipline of gymnastics at the Olympic Games. If you want to try out trampolining as a sport then it is essential that you seek out a properly organised and supervised gymnastic or trampolining club as it can be a dangerous pastime. Luckily, the sport is so popular here that there are clubs literally all over Great Britain. For instance, the Jumpers Rebound Centre is the home of the Gillingham Jumpers. This local club claims to have over 1500 people training each week, numbers that probably mean it is the world’s largest trampoline club! Clubs like the Gillingham Jumpers take safety very seriously, the staff and instructors are carefully selected and the equipment is well maintained with proper safety nets and padding in place. This centre of excellence in trampolining sets the standards that other clubs would do well to follow.
