Rectangular Trampoline Brand Guide

Jumping on a trampoline

Rectangular and oval trampolines offer something a little bit different to rounds. They have a more expressive bounce which allows the user to jump higher and cover more of the mat than a round. This owing to the fact that the springs point in different directions and this doesn't carry the momentum in into the centre as with rounds. The springs stretch to a different extent depending on where they are on the mat and the frames are thicker to compensate for this.

Within the world of oval/rectangular trampolines there are multiple sizes which will fit a variety of different sizes of gardens. It is important that you measure the space you have available in your garden and allow for about a foot to a foot and a half clearance from the edge of the trampoline.

The size of a rectangular trampoline refers to the size of the frame and not the bounce mat. For example a 10ft x 14ft Rectangular Trampoline would have a short side of the frame which is 10ft and a long side with is 14ft. You can learn more about measuring a trampoline in our guide.

There are comparatively fewer different rectangular trampolines available than ovals. This is more coincidental than by design. Ovals and rectangles have a similar bounce so feel free to consider them as part of the same shape when shopping around. We will be comparing some oval and rectangular trampolines of the same size to make it easier for you to choose a trampoline based on the size.

7ft x 10ft Rectangular Trampolines


If you find that you want all the performance features of a rectangular trampoline but you don't quite have the space for a larger trampoline a 7ft x 10ft is a great option. Particularly also for younger children even though they are safely kept on the trampoline by the safety enclosure you will be able to keep a closer eye on them.

There are lots of different brands and models to choose at this size and the table below compares some of the key specifications that affect performance.

The number and length of springs controls the quality of the bounce, frame tube thickness and weight limit gives you an idea of how sturdy the build is and the thickness of the pads lets you know the level of protection available from coming into contact with the springs or frame. We also have listed the manufacturer's warranty to give you an idea of the confidence companys place in the longeivity in each of the trampolines.

Skyhigh 7ft x 10ft Rectangular Trampoline


A longstanding manufacturer of rectangular trampolines Skyhigh this 7ft x 10ft offers a great balance between performance, safety and longevity. The green PVC on the pads, and enclosure pole covers will blend into your garden beautifully too.

Pros
  • Unrivalled bounce with x68 180mm springs, the most of any trampoline at this size
  • Great 114kg weight limit so adults can use too
  • Cons
  • The net tucks on the inside of the pads as a safety feature but you may prefer a design which tucks on the outside of the pads

  • Jumpking 7ft x 10ft Oval Trampoline


    An American brand originally made in Texas, Jumpking have a reputation for making great trampolines and have since introduced their designs to the United Kingdom where they are well respected.

    Pros
  • Nice modern curved pole enclosure design which intersect the pads into the frame
  • 20mm thick padding is of adequate thickness to making getting on and off the trampoline comfortable
  • Cons
  • Only x54 180mm springs means that it will be difficult for the trampoline to generate a particularly high bounce
  • 90kg weight limit is on the lighter side of the other trampolines available at this size

  • Telstar 7ft x 10ft Oval Telstar Vortex (Black Edtion)


    Beginning in 2007 Telstar have produced round, rectangular and oval trampolines. The Vortex black edition is a popular model of their oval trampoline range.

    Pros
  • Good weight limit at 110kg so suitable for adults
  • Net tucks outside the pads which offers more bouncing space
  • Cons
  • Although the trampoline has 58 springs, which is more than the Jumpking, they are only 127mm long. Each spring has less capacity to generate bounce than a trampoline with 180mm springs
  • Enclosure poles are bare foam and unprotected by a sleeve. This means they are more likely to corrode in adverse weather conditions during the winter

  • 7ft x 10ft Telstar Oval Jump Capsule MK3


    Telstar also offer the oval jump capsule in the same size as the Vortex. It offers a different look with the enclosure and the poles insert into the pads.

    Pros
  • Very good weight limit of 120kg
  • Reversible padding so you can choose to have blue or orange pads
  • Cons
  • The bounce is slightly improved on the black Telstar Vortex but the springs are still 127mm long so we would question how good a bounce this trampoline has
  • Whilst this trampoline has protective sleeves they are made from PE material which is less durable and rougher to the touch than PVC

  • 7ft x 10ft Rebo Base Jump Rectangular Trampoline


    Rebo produce oval and rectangle trampolines under the "Base Jump" model of their range and have been trading in the UK since 2004.

    Pros
  • Eye catching black and green colour scheme together with the curved enclosure poles
  • PVC protected foam pads are soft to the touch and of a decent thickness a 20mm
  • Cons
  • Springs are of a good length but there are only 56 compared to the 68 the Skyhigh features
  • 38.1mm frame tube gives it the thinnest frame of the rectangular 7ft x 10fts. It is especially important to have a thick frame for these types of trampolines as the whole mat will be covered

  • Sportspower 8ft x 10ft Rectangular Trampoline


    Also producing a variety of other play equipment Sportspower rose to prominence by stocking their trampolines in Argos. They have recently ventured into making rectangular trampolines.

    Pros
  • A slightly larger bounce area than all the other trampolines as it has a larger frame
  • 100kg in weight limit is suitable for adults and kids
  • Cons
  • Sportspower don't disclose any information about the thickness of the pads, the frame thickness, number of springs or length of springs. This makes it very difficult to make an assessment of how well it bounces or how durable the structure is
  • Big Rectangle Trampolines



    If you have a larger space in your garden and perhaps have older children you may find that a 7ft x 10ft rectangular or oval trampoline isn't quite big enough.

    The trampolines we are looking at in this guide are very big so if you need something a little smaller you can read our rectangular trampolines guide which looks at smaller models.

    Big rectangular trampolines off the very highest specs available in the world of trampolines. They have the biggest bounce mat areas, the most springs and the thickest frames.

    The trampolines we will be examining in this guide vary from 10ft x 14ft to having 12ft x 17ft frames. You will need to provide about a foot to a foot and a half clearance round the trampolines to allow the user to get on and off safely. It is also worth considering that should the bounce stumble and lean back on the net it will bulge out slightly. For this reason you need to make sure there is a suitable amount of space round the parimeter of the trampoline

    The table below will look at five different models of trampolines, many of which come in two different sizes. This will give you an idea of the model that will best suit your needs.

    10ft x 14ft Skyhigh Rectangular Trampoline and 10ft x 17ft Skyhigh Rectangular Trampoline


    Moving up size in the Skyhigh Rectangular trampoline is the 10ftx14ft, the smaller twin model of the Skyhigh 10ft x 17ft.

    Pros
  • 120 or 144 springs of two different lengths which attach to the mat and outer frame. This ensures a great bounce with the most springs available at this size
  • Outer frame structure which supports a very high 140kg weight limit
  • Cons
  • The footprint of the trampoline is made slightly larger by the outer frame design so you will need to accommodate for the 11.5ft x 14ft real size of the trampoline with the 10ft x 14ft or 12ft x 17ft with the 10ft x 17ft

  • Rebo Base Jump 10ft x 14ft Oval and Rectangular Trampolines


    Rebo have two separate trampolines available in 10ft x 14ft: one which is oval and another which is rectangular. They share the same key specifications so it really depends on which shape will fit in better to the space in your garden

    Pros
  • Net tucks on the outside of the pads creating a larger bouncing area
  • Eye catching curved pole design
  • Cons
  • For a trampoline of this size we question if x72 180mm springs will generate enough kinetic energy to lead to an exciting bounce
  • 100kg weight limit is lower than both the Jumpkings and Skyhigh which have a 140kg weight limit

  • Upper Bounce 10ft x 17ft Rectangular Trampoline


    An American company, Upper Bounce make large rectangular trampolines in a variety of bright colour schemes.

    Pros
  • A very good weight limit of 226kg, however please bear in mind that weight limits are simply listed by what the trampolines have supposedly been tested too. At a glance there is no vastly superior engineering in the Upper Bounce compared to the Skyhigh or Jumpking trampolines that mean it can support almost double the weight.
  • Cons
  • In our opinion x108 180mm springs won't generate a particularly exciting bounce
  • The thickness of the frame is not disclosed so it is difficult to get a read on the structure of the trampoline

  • Jumpking and Jumpking Deluxe 10ft x 14ft and 12ft x 17ft


    Jumpking have two tiers of large rectangular trampoline available: standard and deluxe. The deluxe upgrades the thickness of the pads from 20mm in to standard to 25mm and also the 104 springs from 180mm in length to 210mm

    Pros
  • Both have a 140kg weight limit which is very high
  • You have a choice of a more green colour scheme in the standard or black for the deluxe
  • Cons
  • In order to have a bounce comparable to the Skyhigh you need to upgrade to the deluxe model which has a far higher RRP
