Checklist For Jumping Equipment

For an Athletics facility to be able to carry out all jumping events within athletics, the following equipment list shows the minimum requirements:

High Jump Equipment

  • Pair of High Jump Stands
  • A Jumping Lath
  • A High Jump Landing Area

Other options are available to suit the level of athlete using the equipment. A high jump fan (equivalent to a runway) is also required as an installation.

Pole Vault Equipment

  • A pair of Pole Vault Uprights
  • A Jumping Lath
  • A Pole Vault Landing Area

Again, options are available to suit the level of athlete using the equipment. A pole vault runway and pole vault trough (and lid) are required as a fixed installation. For both landing areas, if the mats are left outdoors, a rain proof cover will be required.

Long Jump & Triple Jump Equipment

Although the take-off board can be described as portable, in reality all components of long and triple jump equipment are fixed installations. These include a runway, take off board/s and a sandpit landing area.

For all four events the relevant measuring equipment is required to officiate the competition. Several options are available again pending the level of competition being held.
