The Trampoline World Championships are the World Championships for trampolining. They were originally held annually from 1964-1968. The frequency was switched to biennially from 1970-1998. The admission of trampolining to the Olympic Games required a switch to holding the World Championship as a qualifier in the year before the Olympics from 1999.
