Well the simple answer would be yes rectangular trampolines do offer better performance then round or oval trampolines; this is why they are used in competitions.

The main reasons for this are as follows -

The first reason being the shape because the trampoline has straight edges it allows the springs to work at different timings this gives better performance because you will always land where you left off on the trampoline, where as on a round trampoline the springs are all stretched at the same time meaning the user gets pulled into the centre of the mat making it very hard to master techniques.

The second reason for better performance would be due to the size most rectangular trampoline are very large meaning they have more and longer springs which will always give a better and higher bounce. Also these trampolines will have a larger weight capacity.

The more professional trampolines use different types of mats and don't tend to use springs, the actual matt links direct to the frame and these will be double layered giving the best bounce possible on the market but these will cost allot and can range into the thousands.

My over all conclusions would be if you can fit and afford a rectangular trampoline then I would highly recommend buying one over any other shape and size.   But if you are just looking for a trampoline which your little ones can use to play on then a round or oval one would be sufficient as your children are not going to notice a massive performance in them unless they are into doing more technical tricks and even if they are doing technical tricks a round trampoline may still be at a performance level for them unless they are up to a club standard.
