By the second summer the net was perishing and tore easily requiring stitching repairs. By the next spring the net was rotten and couldn't even be stitched. Unless you want to spend another £125-£150 after 2 years you might as well choose another brand. Not good value. (read more)

Had this trampoline for 3 years and surpised at negative comments about net. Mine has a couple of small holes near the top which I reckon were birds but it has had plenty of use. I am really pleased with the quality and durability of this trampoline and when the net gives up and is beyond sewing repair I will replace it (though £150 seems very expensive). (read more)

Just thought I'd add to this review site with some advice - DO NOT BUY THIS.
The concept of an oval trampoline was what sold us - big enough for them to have fun without it taking up such a huge space.
We, like many others have bought a 15x11 Jump King Oval trampoline and paid a small fortune for it and like others the net has shredded within 2 years and yep a replacement net is around £150.
I have just checked on Ebay and found several for sale without nets as the sellers admitted the nets... (read more)

Have an oval pod and the net rubbish. Made of poor material that quickly degraded in the sun and has ripped to shreads. Contacted Junpking to ask for a replacement. Reply was - sorry out of gaurantee (12 months). Can buy a replacement for £150 but surely a £400 trampoline should have a net that can withstand a bit of british sun! Would recommend others consider a different brand. Other than the net it is good though! (read more)

Don't be fooled!! The sales bumf will tell you that these oval trampolines are high performance - as good as rectangular trampolines. I have bounced on one of these and I can tell you that the performance is no better than an average round trampoline. On the up side, they are well-made using good quality materials. Good if you want something unusual with a mediochre performance (read more)

The Jumpking Mini OvalPod is a very well made, sturdy trampoline. The oval shape excellent for long narrow gardens like mine and gives a good bounce area. My two kids (aged 9 and 6) go on together and have plenty of room). It is quite high so the ladder is a must for smaller children, my 6 year old cannot get on without it. (read more)
