A frequently asked question is. “Is trampolining dangerous?” Of course like any physical activity it isn’t without its risks. However, there is more chance of gaining an injury from playing football, rugby, netball or any other contact sport. The fun and health benefits outweigh the small risks involved.
We want to ensure that all participants have as much fun as possible, and also it is really important for all participants to understand the risks and to follow set rules, safety guidelines and jump within their own ability. Serious injury and death can result from the use of trampolines if not used properly.
Some of our policies are:
- Before commencing any activities all participants are required to read and sign a risk acknowledgement and disclaimer form which educates visitors about potential dangers and how to minimise the risk of injuries
- Shortly before the start of jump sessions all participants are required to watch a short safety briefing video on every visit and also will receive any specific safety instructions from our safety briefing marshals relating to the particular activities being undertaken.
- Our Court Monitors are trained to watch for potentially dangerous activities and will ensure the safety rules are adhered to for the safety of all visitors to our park.
- CCTV is in place throughout the park for the safety of our visitors
As a member of the International Association of Trampoline Parks, our safety policies and procedures keep risks to an absolute minimum at our parks. We have a team of fully qualified first aiders at the park at all times who are there to deal with any medicinal issue – you will be in the best hands.
Our rules and guidelines are designed to prevent/minimise risk of injury to yourself and others. Before your session, we ask that you watch our short safety video, which will visually explain our park rules in a few minutes. We appreciate that if you’re a returning bouncer you may not wish to watch this again. However, we request that you watch it again as a refresher.
Your safety and ensuring that your experience at Jump Xtreme is as much fun as possible, are our top priorities; this is why the rules are in place.
Home Trampolines VS Jump Xtreme Trampolines
Home Trampoline accidents are often in the news, and the vast majority of trampoline accidents happen on garden trampolines which are often misused by being overloaded (more than 1 person!), or badly maintained with non-existent or damaged safety netting.
Our Trampolines are all fixed into a raised platform, with ASTM and ADIPS approved padding on all hard surfaces. So if you do have a tumble, you will not fall from a raised level as all of our trampolines are at floor level. Key areas of the park have extra padding and safety netting installed.
Before commencing any activities all participants are required to read and sign a risk acknowledgement and disclaimer form, which educates visitors about potential dangers and how to minimise the risk of injuries. Unfortunately there are no exceptions - no waiver means no jumping!
If you need any guidance or assistance in completing the waiver for any reason, a member of the Jump staff will always be there to offer a helping hand!
Our Court Monitors are trained to watch for potentially dangerous activities and will ensure the safety rules are adhered to for the safety of all visitors to our park.
We want all of our jumpers to have a fantastic, flipping, tucking and jumping time at Jump Xtreme. We therefore do as much as we can to reduce the risk of injuries sustained in the park. Our Trampoline systems are manufactured in the UK by Continental Sports, who have been supplying Schools and Gyms with Gymnasium equipment including trampolines for over 50 years and our systems are certified compliant with ADIPS (link to http://www.adips.co.uk/), so we have designed safety into the park from the ground up. We have also trained our staff to the highest standards and continue to ensure that they are properly trained and up-to-date with the latest safety information available.
