Welcome to the SGS website where we aim to tell you about the club and perhaps inspire you with our skipping galleries and news.
We are a community rope skipping club, which regularly competes in BRSA organised competitions. Members of the club have also competed for the UK in international competitions. The sport of Rope Skipping, also called Jump Rope, combines the skills of jumping, dancing and gymnastics. Skippers need to have speed, endurance and some gymnastic and musical ability to be a good all round performer. We welcome new members of all ages and abilities.
This year the British Masters and Team Competitions were held together for the first time on the weekend of 12th and 13th October in Bellshill near Glasgow.
Congratulations to Lara Liebenberg who was crowned British 12-14 Champion after a gold medal winning freestyle routine and awarded with 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze medals in total. Tiffany was delighted to win a bronze medal for her freestyle routine and came 6th overall with Georgia just behind at 7th in a very strong field in the over 15 age group.
Tiffany and Georgia also competed with their Kingston team-mates, Harry and Sam Cross, in the British Team Competition. They came very close to winning the overall competition but were narrowly beaten into 2nd place, even though they beat the winning team in 3/6 of the events. They were very pleased to win gold medals in the team freestyle and 4 person double dutch and also won 4 silver medals each. Well done girls!
The British Rope Skipping Association is holding the Speed Competition at the Henley in Arden Sports Centre in Warwickshire on Saturday 17th May. 14 members of the club will be competing and for 10 of these it will be their very first competition. The events include 30 seconds of speed skipping and 30 seconds of double unders, both as individual and pairs. For the older skippers there are also a number of Double Dutch speed events.
Senior members, Tiff Branscombe and Georgia Toay, with Harry and Sam Cross are very excited to be going out to Hong Kong in the Summer to represent Team UK at the FISAC-IRSF World Rope Skipping Championships. They will be competing in the mixed team event and at the individual Masters Championships. Good luck guys and keep practising!
