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 in Seer Green, near Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, which meets monthly to provide skipping classes to children aged 5+. We teach the basic skills right up to advanced levels in small groups of similar ability. Members of the club can take part in national competitions and the most senior skippers/coaches have also competed for Team UK at international events. The sport of Rope Skipping, also called Jump Rope, combines the skills of jumping, dancing and gymnastics. Great 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 (5+) and abilities.
FISAC World Championships and World Jump Rope Championships- July/August 2016
Georgia came out of retirement to compete in the FISAC World Rope Skipping Championships with old Bouncers team-mate Sam in Malmo, Sweden in August. Well done Georgia – we saw some of the live feed and both her own routine and the pairs one looked great! I know they had a fantastic time meeting up with lots of old friends from around the world.
Tiff competed in the WJR World Jump Rope Championships in Braga, Portugal at the end of July. She came 5th in 30 sec speed, 7th in 3 min speed with a new pb of 423 in the Senior 19-22 age division and 2nd (silver) in the pairs double under relay with Bouncers team-mate Theo in the Senior Open division. Her and Theo got to compete again in the Grand Finals as one of the top 6 pairs across all age groups and Theo is only 10 years old! Tiff got a new pb of 87 but it was not enough to win one of the crystal trophies sadly. We had a great time in Braga with some of the other UK, European and US teams.
The next competition is the National Team and Masters Championships which will be held in Bellshill, near Glasgow on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November.
National Speed Championships - May 2016
Laura, Aleena, Ria and Tiff had a fantastic time at the National Jump Rope Speed Championships at Lilleshall National Sports Centre near Telford on Saturday 21st May. Because we are such a small club we teamed up with skippers from other clubs around the country for some of the events. Aleena was delighted to get a silver medal for the 10-11 years pair double unders with her friend Sophie from the Bouncers club and Aleena and Laura got bronze in the 10-11 4 x 30 secs speed relay with Sophie and Poppy from Bouncers. Ria gained lots of experience in the Novice section where she competed in the individual 30 sec speed and the pairs speed with Sophie from Scotland. She has 2 more years in the under 9 age group and hopes to get a medal next year. Tiff was very happy with her silver medal in the 15+ individual 30 sec speed and gained a further 4 golds and 1 silver in various single rope and double dutch relays with Stacie and Elly from Jump Rope UK in Redditch (where she now sometimes trains whilst at University) and Connor To from Essex. Well done girls!
National Team and Masters Championships - November 2015
Congratulations to Tiffany who maintained her form at the National Jump Rope Team and Masters Championships in Bellshill, near Glasgow on Saturday 21st November after only 6 weeks of training. She came 5th in 30 second speed, 3rd in 3 minutes speed, 4th in freestyle and got gold in a 4 x 30 second speed relay with 3 girls from Jump Rope UK in Redditch. It was great to catch up with the other skippers around the country, particularly as she is now having to train by herself at university.
