About Nissen Cup
The "Nissen Cup" is the oldest international trampoline competition and owes its name to the inventor of the trampoline, George Nissen (USA). As a sports professor and dive master, he constructed the first prototype of a trampoline in his garage in the 1930s, fixing a piece of cloth with elastic bands on a metal frame to mark the birth of the trampoline. The trampoline gymnastics (singles and synchronous) is today an elite sport and Olympic discipline - a discipline that includes freedom, flying and space. The multiple alti and turns at a height of 8 meters require a sophisticated technique, perfect body control and extremely aesthetic movements.
The Nissen Cup is held every two years in Switzerland and fortunately for the fifth time in Arosa. Thanks to the great presence of the world's best trampoline gymnasts, we can look forward to a top-class and exciting competition.
