Our terms and conditions outline the risks and anyone participating at BOUNCE is deemed to have accepted these conditions prior to participating.
Like most sporting activities, trampolining and other adventure-challenge activities creates the potential for injury even when done properly and following appropriate rules and guidelines. Our rules and safety guidelines have been developed in conjunction with recognised safety experts with the specific direction to meet or exceed world’s best practice. To minimise the chance of dangerous situations, especially for inexperienced participants, we have clearly posted rules at the entrance to each area. These rules are enforced by our staff.
Historically, trampoline related injuries have occurred when jumpers have ‘fallen off’ a trampoline onto the ground or landed ‘on the frame’. BOUNCE has minimized these risks by ensuring our trampoline areas are walled with rebounding surfaces and frames are covered in high grade foam padding, that has undertaken head attenuation testing in line with potential fall heights. We have designed our facility to reduce or eliminate the hazards associated with typical home trampolines and are continually working to ensure a safe environment through optimal design, engineering, construction, staff training, supervision and research.
To minimise the risk that can be associated with adventure-challenge activities (such as parkour and freerunning) in an urban environment, our adventure-challenge areas have been designed by professionals in the industry, with high grade foam padding incorporated into the activity areas.
All trampoline support structures (the steel and springs between the trampoline beds) are covered by more than two inches of high grade foam padding. In the Performance Trampoline area, this increases to eight inches. In addition, we have added technology to our padding – the first layer is a carpet-bonded foam for durability and strength, and the second layer of foam is enclosed in vinyl for adjustability and comfort. The springs are completely encapsulated in a polypropylene sheet and covered by vinyl padding. We have met or exceeded the padding requirements advocated by all applicable International standards.
All activity areas are monitored by trained staff and all team members complete:
All team members complete the above training before monitoring areas.
Our three core safety rules are:
There are dedicated rules per area, which expand upon the above core rules.
Our staff also enforce our ‘one person per trampoline/apparatus’ rule to avoid collisions. Children under 110cm in height have dedicated areas which keeps these smaller jumpers separate from larger children or adults.
BOUNCE is part of leading international bodies that are striving to create the world’s best practice for trampoline and adventure-challenge activity safety. BOUNCE is a member of and meets or exceeds the standards associated with the following organisations :
Development Programs (Freestyle Academy) are available for all levels of ability to help develop skills from learning to jump safely through to specialised skill development and freestyle movement.
Anyone jumping at BOUNCE is required to wear our grip-socks designed to help maximise grip, safety and general hygiene.
In adventure-challenge areas (e.g. X-Park, Free-run, Clip n Climb), participants are recommended to wear closed toe, flat soled running shoes with tight laces.
There are no age restrictions, but in order to ensure the safety of our bouncers, Junior Jumpers must be able to walk unassisted and must be under 110cms.
We encourage and welcome any feedback that helps us continue to develop a best practice safety program and environment at BOUNCE. Contact us to provide feedback.
