The FTA World Championships is a Trampoline Battle, where the best athletes face-off to see who has the most Creative, Difficult and best Executed Freestyle Combos on a 5 x 5 m EUROTRAMP™ Freestyle Trampoline.
In 2016 the sport was officially coined "The Sport Born On Instagram" and with it the world's first garden trampoline competition was held. Called the ‘GTGames,' the event was held in Escondido, California with the top 50 athletes from around the world invited to attend, based on skills demonstrated their Instagram GT Games Official Submissions. With broadcasters and publishers such as Jukin Media, Fox News, the New York Times and L.A Times, the sport really took off! This was the birth of this new sport and the impetus for creating the Freestyle Trampoline Association.
Co-creators, Greg Roe & Trish McGeer, quickly saw the sport as a community that were looking for a way to showcase their skills, so more events were added to the calendar in the years to follow, including a GTGames in both Europe and New Zealand. Fast forward 3 years and many events later, the first FTA Sanctioned Supertramp competition was held in Europe, called 'Freestyle Frenzy’ at Crossjumps in The Netherlands This event captured live audiences across Europe and reached as far as French Tv channels with high flying skills never before seen in competition with a competitive format that was safe for the athletes as well as an amazing Show for the Audience. The best in the world were then invited to compete at the Freestyle Frenzy Championships in 2019 in The Netherlands.
Then the world plunged into a global pandemic and the FTA was forced to postpone events for eighteen months. During this time, we created a series of investments such as: an Podcast Education Series, Franchising the FTA and ‘jumping’ into Esports.
Now, as an Official Global Esports Federation Member, the FTA is positioned with Esport Leaders to bring the excitement of Live Trampoline to the Video Game Screen for the first time! #GRTproflipper is the world’s first 3D & Real Physics Mobile Trampoline Simulator with Live Leaderboard Scoring!
