The 10ft  x 7ft JumpPRO Xcite Oval Trampoline and Enclosure

This is a fantastic Oval trampoline from JumpPROOpens in a new tab., 10ft x 7ft which gives you a total jump area of 9ft x 6ft once you take into consideration the safety enclosure and padding – 41.44 (Sq.ft) or 3.85 (Sq.m)

A very high maximum user weight coming in at 150kg which equates to 23 stone so this means parents and other adults can bounce on this trampoline, but only one adult or child is recommended at one time to avoid collisions, injuries and to not exceed the maximum user weight.

If the maximum user weight is exceeded, this can cause the bounce pad to bottom out and hit the ground which could injure the bounce as well as damage the bounce mat itself or further damage to the trampoline.

Oval trampolines were introduced a good few  years ago now and a cross between a round and rectangular trampoline. The aim is for this style to fit in not so standard shaped gardens but also it’s a great shape trampoline to look at to.

Incase you are not aware, every brand of new trampoline includes a safety enclosure and netting supplied as this is law. The enclosure on this oval trampolineOpens in a new tab. has a zipped entrance which means when its zipped closed when in use, it seals the netting and helps to reduce any falls from the trampoline.

The design is very sleek as you can see, with a very strong galvanised steel frame which adds strength as well as becoming very resistance to rust which if allowed, would weaken a trampoline frame. The galvanised frame also provides durability so when weight is applied, it holds its own very well and will give you years of stable enjoyment.

With an Oval trampoline you have a series of jump zones which work how you would expect a rectangular trampoline to work in not producing bounce back which leads you to the centre of the trampoline.  On a round trampoline when you jump, you are guided back to the centre of the trampoline but this does not happen on a rectangular trampoline.

So on this Oval trampoline, using these zones means that when you jump into the air, you will land in the same area as you started.

JumpPRO have spent considerable time on safety and have designed their Xcite trampoline to incorporate the springs onside of the netting so out of reach of children and adult when bouncing.

As well as the Oval range from JumpPRO they do still provide round and rectangular trampolines with a range of different sizes. When assembled by two adult and you have the finished product, you have a great looking trampoline that will look amazing in your garden for all sorts of outdoor play, exercise and fun for many years.
