What is Rope Skipping?
It is a game where one or more participants jump over a rope. There are also people who jump two ropes turning at the same time: this is called “Double Dutch”, and it is much more difficult.

Is it a sport?
Yes. It is also practiced at a competitive level, and it has its own federations. (ERSO: European Rope Skipping Organisation; IRSF: International RS Federation).

In rope skipping competitions, athletes compete in individual and team events using single ropes or double-Dutch.

Here you have a video showing you some of the possibilities of rope skipping:


In our classes we jump in three different ways:

Individually: One person swings his/her rope and jumps over it
In pairs: One person swings the rope and jumps over it, and a partner enters the rope and jumps with him/her.
In a long rope: Two people swing a long rope and the rest of the class enters the large rope individually or in groups.
