How on earth do you dry a trampoline without getting wet trousers?!

We got a 10 foot trampoline for our garden at the weekend. The weather's not been the Mae West so I've had to dry it off a number of times before it's been used. And I've ended up with sopping wet knees every time. Even though I only kneel places I've already dried - the water, of course, rolls to the lower space created by me kneeling and I end up soaked. Do I have to either wear shorts or waterproof trousers to dry it, or is there some magic method I'm unfamiliar with that will keep me dry?!

go underneath, stand up, pushing up the middle of the trampoline and then drop down quickly - do this 2/3 times and the surface water will have rolled and "pinged" off, then go on top, kneel on a towel and dry with another towel if needed.

These are good ideas - I'll give them both a go. Thanks!

I just let the kids bounce on it wearing old tracky trousers or shorts - it soon dries out grin
