Let us understand each step, in brief, to know how exactly you can convert your trampoline into a wrestling ring in an easy way.

#1. Get Required Tools and Equipment

The first step for turning your trampoline into a pro wrestling ring is to get all the necessary tools, materials, and equipment. We have already mentioned the list of essential tools above. Next, you should go to a nearby local shop or buy required things from an online store. Finally, make sure all the tools and materials are of the best quality and in enough quantity to execute the task of creating a trampoline wrestling ring.

#2. Dig Holes for the Poles (Pipes or Posts)

You have purchased 4 wooden poles (or PVC pipes). Now, you should mark the spots where you will dig holes for the poles. We recommend one pole at each corner of the trampoline to create a square around a round trampoline. It would help if you made a court by installing 4 poles (1 at each corner) irrespective of the shape of your trampoline.

Simply mark the 4 spots around your trampoline where you want to install the poles with turnbuckles. After that, dig at least 3-4 feet deep on each area to properly install wooden poles into the ground. You can dig deeper to make the poles stand firmly, but you have to buy longer poles for that. Ensure each pole remains around 4 feet out of the ground after installation.

#3. Install the Poles into Ground

You should install the wooden poles into the ground one by one. Just insert the pole into the hole and make sure it is installed firmly. All four poles should be installed correctly, and none of them should shake or wobble as it can be dangerous when the kids are wrestling and the poles are shaking. You can add dirt, concrete, and rocks around the poles to strengthen them.

#4. Fasten the Pipes

If you have purchased PVC pipes instead of wooden poles/posts, this step is for you. First, you need to install the pipes into the holes you have dug in step 2. After that, use the plastic fasteners to secure the pipes into the ground. To make it highly secure, you can use 4-5 plastic fasteners on each pipe. Finally, ensure all four PVC pipes are correctly installed and won’t move/shake under pressure.

If you have got wooden poles and installed them in step 3, you should avoid this step and continue the process from step 5.

#5. Mark Drilling Spots on Poles

It would help to mark the spots on each pole where you want to insert ropes. Inserting ropes in each pole and connecting them will create a ring around the trampoline. It will turn your trampoline into a wrestling ring, and then your kids can start playing wrestling fights/games with their friends.

Ideally, you need to draw/mark 3 spots on each pole to create a wrestling ring with nonstretchable ropes.

#6. Drill the Marked Spots

It would help if you drilled the marked spots on the wooden poles (or PVC pipes). Ensure that all the holes are small or medium and not too big. Because the big holes can’t hold the ropes well and they may cause the wooden pole to tear or break in the long term.

#7. Attach the Hooks or S-Rings

After drilling holes into all 4 poles/pipes, you should attach hooks on each hole of the poles. You can also use the bolts and nuts in place of hooks use a washer for added security on bolts.

#8. Tie the Ropes

Now tie the ropes around the entire trampoline using the holes with screws/nuts & bolts in the poles. Make sure you cover the whole playing area and install the ropes properly to convert your trampoline into a wrestling ring.

#9. Add the Foam Pads or Pillows

After tying the ropes, the next step is to attach the foam pads or pillows. The foam pads/pillows are generally attached to the turnbuckle hooks on each corner of the wrestling ring. It would help if you used the shoelaces to tie down the pads/pillows.

#10. Staple the Cloth

You have got a large piece of cloth which is the last thing to use in this process. The fabric should be large enough to the outer edge of the trampoline. Then, you should install the cloth with the help of a staple gun.

The staple gun will let you attach the cloth to the trampoline covering the area below the playing surface on the outer edge. It will make your trampoline look entirely like a WWE wrestling ring. Some people also add a WWE logo on that cloth for their kids.

Check the Trampoline Wrestling Ring Before Using It

You have completed all the 10 steps for turning your trampoline into a wrestling ring. Next, you should check the trampoline wrestling ring to know if everything is installed correctly. Next, you should review the poles, hooks, ropes, pillows/pads, and parts. If everything is in ideal condition, then you can allow your kids to enter the trampoline wrestling ring and play a fight with their friends.
