Bouncy fun

Trampolining is brilliant aerobic exercise. It improves your balance and there are loads of challenging tricks to learn!

Overview

Trampolining is a competitive Olympic sport in which gymnasts perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. Girls can have a go by just bouncing, or learning some tricks, according to their level of confidence and skill.

Looking for something a little more challenging on a trampoline? Try aeroballing - a cross between trampolining, basketball and volleyball, which is offered at our Blackland Farm Activity Centre in Sussex.

This page does not refer to the use of smaller trampolines as a leisure activity, or for activities taking place at trampoline leisure centres (such as Airhop). In this case, a qualified instructor is not required. However, you should ensure that Information and Consent forms and a risk assessment are completed, and that you take appropriate safety precautions.
