Basketball Trampoline! Now That Sounds like Fun

By: Remy Jirek

Doesn't a basketball trampoline sound like a lot of fun? You can usually find these trampolines available at fun plex's and other outdoor play areas. Buying a backyard trampoline is fairly easy, but finding one that you can play basketball with can be more difficult. A true basketball trampoline is long and rectangular and shaped like a gymnastic trampoline.

Types of trampolines that you can play basketball on

The two main types of basketball trampolines are the traditional rectangle type that has a basket on each end. This type comes in a variety of models and some might even have a partition in the middle. These basketball types of trampolines are usually professional quality and very expensive.

The other type of trampolines for sale that might be offered at a better price are regular round trampolines that have a basketball attachment. They are an enclosed trampoline similar in style to a regular kids trampoline but you can play basketball on them.

These regular trampolines can be called a rebounder or fun jumper as well. You will find these for sale at a variety of retail store, but you may have to purchase the basketball accessory separately.

Pricing

The sale price of your trampoline is an important aspect of your purchase. You don't want to spend more money buying trampolines than you have to. Shop around and look for the best price when you buy a trampoline. Don't settle for the first store that offers the type of trampoline that you are looking for. Instead keep a log of the prices at different stores and even consider looking online for a better price.

Using the Internet to your advantage

The Internet is a great place to find good deals on trampolines of all types and you can often get specials for discounted and free delivery. If you are interested in a large basketball type trampoline the Internet may be your only source for one. You might also consider asking around at amusement parks and other similar fun places.

If you find a place that is offering trampoline basketball, be sure to ask where they purchased their trampoline. The one they own may be fairly old, but the company is likely still around and probably selling even better basketball type trampolines. Again, use the internet to your advantage when searching for a good trampoline store.

Home Models

For your home trampoline you can usually find fun basketball accessories online. Try looking at online auction places and other specialty fun stores to find the best basketball equipment for you home trampoline.

It is important to only play basketball on a trampoline that has an enclosure around it. When you are playing basketball it is too difficult to have to worry how close you are to the edge of the trampoline. By having an enclosure around your trampoline you will ensure that if you jump too high … you will still stay in the trampoline and not end up on the ground.
