Why an Oval Trampoline could suit your family...
At Springfree we have varied trampoline shapes and sizes (8ft, 10ft, 11ft and 13ft) to suit different garden sizes, family sizes, ages, and weights. We want you to make an informed decision so this page is dedicated to families considering either the 11ft x 8ft or 13ft x 8ft oval trampolines.
If you have a good amount of garden space and you have older children/adults these trampolines a great choice .
The oval trampoline has two distinct bouncing areas which do not interfere with eachother. This results in a far safer bounce if more than one person is bouncing at once.
The benefit of an oval trampoline is in the jumping zones, its perfect and safer for two kids of different weights simultaneously jumping.
An oval trampoline fits well into narrower gardens. Also it can fit closer to the edge of a garden appearing less intrusive than a larger round version.

From the blog: Why Buy an Oval Trampoline?
What’s so great about oval trampolines then?
Oval trampolines have become one of our most popular shapes since they became mainstream, and they are the ultimate hybrid of round and square trampolines. They have two main advantages. Oval trampolines have a width of 8ft (the same as our smallest trampoline!) but are 11 or 13 feet long, depending on the model you choose, offering a massive amount of bounce space. Their size and shape makes them perfect for longer, thinner spaces, such as inner-city gardens! Oval Trampolines are also great for square gardens as their shape allows them to be positioned to one side, not wasting any of your precious garden space! As well as this, rather than having a ‘pull into the middle’ effect of a round trampoline, the technology in Springfree Oval Trampolines gives the bounce mat two distinct ‘Bounce Hotspots’ which, when jumped in, provide a more even, balanced bounce.
