Hello there and welcome to the UCD Trampoline club website!
Before we begin I'd like to addresss a few FAQs:
No, we don't just jump up and down on a trampoline.
Yes, you can join with no experience.
No, no you don't have to wear tight lycra (but it helps)
Yes, this is a real sport. It's been in the Olympics since Sydney 2000.
No, you can't "do a flip" until you've worked up to the skill.
Yes, it's only €15 for a whole years membership!
Since the dawn of time man has looked to the sky , at the birds and the bees and the pterodactyls , with one dream; to fly 🚀. Here in the UCD Trampoline club, we help you fly up... and back down again and back up in a repeated fashion, usually wearing some kind of lycra with white socks on the most beautifully pointed toes, all this fuelled by your own massive muscles! YEEEAAHHH!
Trampolining is a unique sport that combines cardio, co-ordination, core strength, flexibility, balance and stamina and wait for it, you won't believe this one; it's fun . With 6 olympic standard trampolines and experienced coaches available for one on one coaching at every training session, the odds are definitely in your favour.What do you want in a sports club?
- Regular training times like every Tuesday 8-10 and Thursdays 5-7?
- A club unaffected by the weather? Indoors!
- A chance to talk to some people? What else would you be doing when you're waiting for your turn!
- A club with a formidable background? UCD Club of the year 2011, 2017 and Intervarsities winners the last 6 years running!
If you're here looking at the website, you're obviously interested. You'll go far my friend 👣. Take a look around the site, we're quite proud of it. You'll find details on the history of the club, pictures and reports from our (many) trips away on the Events page, our coaches and committee on the About page and games and videos and everything else on the EE page. It's all just a click away...
Yours with reckless abandon,
Note from the Webmaster
WELCOME! I hope you like the site. If you don't, Paul will weep a Mississippi of tears ...
Naturally for the best experience you should probably use Google Chrome as your browser but come on, who doesn't these days eh?!
If you have any feedback, suggestions, secrets, adoration or ideas, head over to the 404 Forum and we'll see what we can do.

History of the club
The UCD Trampoline Club was set up by Andrew Cahill in the 1980's; the era of the A-Team, Gummi Bears, Air Wolf, Jem, Teddy Ruxpin, Brave Star and the Samurai Pizza Cats. The club is equally as cool as any of these things.
