Overloading a trampoline with more than its maximum weight capacity can lead to serious injuries, as well as damage to the trampoline.
A trampoline’s maximum weight capacity depends on its shape and size. Check the weight capacity of the trampoline you intend to buy to make sure your jumpers will not exceed it.
The weight capacities of most round and rectangular trampolines vary by size within these ranges:
- Round trampoline: 250–330 lbs.
- Rectangular trampoline: 500 lbs
