Trampoline Games

Selwood trampolines such as the jumpKing Air can be used for many games here are a few mentioned by the climbing frames UK staffers

Wild Boar:

How many people are needed? You will need at least 2 players to play this game.
Object of the game: To get and stay out of the middle of the trampoline.
Age Range: Recommended for jumpers age 5+
How to play: The person in the middle of the trampoline is the ‘wild boar’, he/she is blindfolded. He/she is on their hands and knees and jumps around crazily. When the ‘wild boar’ tackles someone, he/she has to guess who they have tackled. If he/she’s right they switch places. When the ‘wild boar’ gets too close to the edge of the trampoline, shout “fire”. This game is best on the bigger trampolines i.e. 12ft & 14ft JumpKing Air trampolines.

Ring Around The Rosy:

How many people are needed? You will need 3 people or more to play this game.
Object of the game: Walking round in a circle singing a song & following each other moves.
Age Range: Recommended for little jumpers +
How to play: Form a circle in the middle of the trampoline. Hold hands, or walk around in a circle. Singing, “Ring Around the Rosy, a Pocket Full of Posies, A tishoo, A tishoo, We all Do A _____________.” Each person takes a turn picking the way you should fall down. Examples: Bottom drops, knee drops, backwards drops, etc. You can get even more creative by doing animal drops, airplane or train drops, and more.

Hot Potato:

How many people are needed: 3 players +
Object of the game: To stay in the game by catching the ball
Age range: 5 years +
How to play: The jumpers are on the trampoline. All players must be jumping at all times. A soft ball is thrown between players. Players must catch the ball. If they drop it, fail to catch it, or stop jumping to catch the ball they are out. Play continues until there is only one player left. *We recommend using the inflatable ball from the JumpSport GamePak

Crack The Egg:

How many people are needed: A minimum of three players
Object of the game: To crack the egg
Age Range: 5 years+
How to Play: All players are on the trampoline. One player is chosen to sit in the middle of the players who have formed a circle around her/him. The player in the middle sits with knees drawn to chest and arms around her knees. The players jump around her/him until she/he “cracks” or releases her arms from around his/her legs.

Telephone:

How many people are needed: A minimum of three players
Object of the game: To follow in pattern
Age Range: 5 years +
How to play: Children line up around the edge of the trampoline. One person goes to the centre of the trampoline and performs a trick. It could be a bottom drop, bouncing two or three times, or another type of trick. The next child in line goes to the centre of the trampoline after the first person exits off. They then perform the first persons trick, than add a trick of their own. The third person than enters the centre of the trampoline and continues the cycle until someone is not able to remember the sequence correctly. They then are “out” and become a judge to watch the others and make sure they perform the sequences correctly.
