Trampoline basketball is a great way for kids and adults alike to slam-dunk like the pros. The slogan used to be, "I wanna be like Mike!" Now you can be with a trampoline basketball hoop. Imagine yourself jumping higher than anyone in the NBA and pounding the round ball into the hoop with the confidence of an all-star. This is what trampoline basketball is all about.

Trampoline Basketball Is Not a Team Sport

When you decide to get a trampoline basketball hoop for your backyard, trampoline safety should come first in your mind. This is not a team sport. Trampoline basketball is designed to be a single player sport. Yet it can also be a game of horse or ghost where the players take turns doing trick shots and seeing if they can outmaneuver their opponent.

When considering a trampoline basketball package there are a few things to look for that will keep the play safe. Insist on a padded hoop. Your kids and you will be jamming the ball through it, so help keep everyone's hands protected with adequate pads. Also make sure that it is strong enough to hold up to the rigors of some heavy-duty use.

Another important aspect of a trampoline basketball hoop and backboard is that it be designed to work with your trampoline enclosure. Some will, and some won't. Some can actually work against the positive aspects of the enclosure and weaken their holding ability. Lastly, remember that trampoline basketball is not a team sport. One at a time play will keep everyone safe to play another day.
