Trampoline Sizes

There are many sizes of trampoline to choose from. Consider the age and size of your jumpers; the area available to set up your trampoline, including clearance space; and whether the trampoline will be used for gymnastic training.

Trampoline sizes are equal to their edge-to-edge diameter, so a trampoline jumping area will be smaller than its listed size.

  • 36-48 Inches:Mini trampolines without nets are designed for adults who want to add a low-impact aerobic activity to their fitness routine. Some have handrails that attach to the frame to increase safety and stability while exercising. Many mini trampolines are foldable to make transporting them easy.

  • 55 Inches:This size trampoline is best for young (6+) children. (Children under 6 years of age should not use trampolines.) Its size and round shape produce a moderate bounce so that smaller, less experienced jumpers can have adequate control of their jumps. The mat is low and close to the ground, making it easy for them to get on and off safely and without a ladder. Trampolines higher than 1.5 feet from the ground are not recommended for young children.

  • 7–8 Feet: This size trampoline is good for families with children over the age of 9. The mat is low and close to the ground, making it safe and easy for children to get on and off without a ladder. Trampolines over 1.5 feet in height are not recommended for young children.

  • 10–11 Feet:Recommended for adults and children over the age of 9, this size fits in smaller yards but provides more space to jump on, and thus more opportunity for a higher and more enjoyable bounce.

  • 12–13 Feet:This is the most popular size among all jumpers. It provides a larger area to jump on and a higher bounce, but requires a larger yard with open flat space.

  • 14–16 Feet:A trampoline of this size requires a greater amount of space, but its large jumping area makes it the most popular option for gymnasts, acrobats and other trained athletes.
