Here at Vuly, we’re always keen to be part of a good cause (and spy the new trends hot off the runway), so when Leanne Roberts approached us about donating a Vuly Trampoline for auction at the annual Gumdale State School P&C Fashion Parade, we didn’t wait to be asked twice! Continue reading

Eddie Cole: October 1, 1936 – May 23, 2011
One of the early pioneers in the sport of trampoline, Eddie Cole, passed away on Monday, May 23, 2011 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa USA.
Eddie spent many years traveling throughout the world representing the Nissen Trampoline Comp any (George Nissen is considered the Father of the modern trampoline) conducting clinics and providing outstanding educational programs.
Eddie was born in Houston, Texas, but grew up in the Chicago area where he discovered his life-long love of springboard diving and being able to fly through the air. Enro
lling at the University of Michigan, Eddie first joined the diving team, but was approached by gymnastics coach Newt Loken who soon talked Eddie into trying out for the trampoline. This is where he excelled. Eddie won the Big Ten Trampoline Championship award (an American award) for three years in a row from 1957, as well as the 1959 NCAA Trampoline Championship. He was also the 1965 World’s Professional Diving Champion.
The trampoline game known as “Spaceball” intrigued Eddie so greatly that later in life he redesigned his own improved version for commercial use. His idea of combining bouncing, basketball a
nd a hoop became known as “Jump Shot” and is a popular attraction for commercial fun centers throughout the world.
The sport of trampoline has lost an icon and ambassador of our industry. He will be sorely missed by everyone in the trampoline community.
Vuly is proud and privileged to be able to donate two trampolines to the worthy causes of AAAD Kids and Pets Disaster Checklist and Research Kinder.
- Aussie Angels Assistance Dogs (“AAAD”) Kids and Pets Disaster Wishlist
AAAD is a charity whose purpose is to provide trained dogs free of charge, to assist disabled and medically challenged persons in their day to day lives and to enhance their quality of life. Following the recent natural disasters that have struck Queensland and Victoria, AAAD has set up a donation service to put smiles back on the faces of all those children and pets who have lost something due to these devastating phenomena.
After receiving an email from a woman whose young family had almost lost everything due to Cyclone Yasi, AAAD was inspired to contact Vuly to seek a trampoline donation that could assist the family. The woman’s three children, who were trampoline enthusiasts, greatly missed their trampoline when it was destroyed by Cyclone Yasi.
- Research Kinder
Research Kinder is a small preschool with strong community links, who believe in keeping their neighbourhood safe by supporting one another. Located in a semi-rural area in Victoria, Research Kinder has a passion for creating healthy and happy lifestyles for all the children who attend their centre. Many of the staff are volunteers who give their time freely to the kinder.
Vuly is proud and privileged to be able to donate two trampolines to the worthy causes of AAAD Kids and Pets Disaster Checklist and Research Kinder. We’ve been touched by your warm reception to Vuly products and the love that you share with us for the backyard trampoline. We hope that you enjoy your trampolines as much as we did giving them to you!
