Seer Green Skippers
WW
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.

BRSA Speed Competition
The British Rope Skipping Association held its annual Speed Competition at the Henley in Arden Sports Centre in Warwickshire on Saturday 17th May. 14 members of the club took part and for 10 of these it was their very first competition. The events include 30 seconds of speed skipping and 30 seconds of double unders, both as individual and pairs.  A number of the new skippers won medals in the Novice competition in the morning so went on to compete in the National event in the afternoon.  Everybody had lots of fun and gained loads of experience. Good luck to Tiff, Georgia and Sam who will be competing in the next BRSA Masters competition to be held on Sunday 9th November in Bellshill, Scotland.
Results of the Speed Competition can be found here - Novice and National
World Championships - Hong Kong 2014
Senior members, Tiffany Branscombe and Georgia Toay, with Kingston team mates Harry and Sam Cross have just returned from Hong Kong where they were representing Team UK at the FISAC-IRSF World Rope Skipping Championships. They competed in the mixed team event against the best teams in the world and came a creditable 14th out of 19 teams, their best result coming in the pairs freestyle event where they were ranked 10th. They also competed individually in the World Masters Competition and after personal bests in both 30 second and 3 minute speed events, Tiffany was ranked 39th in the World overall. Many teams are semi-professional and have huge resources in financial, coaching and medical support, whereas our team are self-funded, choreograph every routine and have to maintain their motivation by themselves. Tiffany was also asked to judge for the Female Team World Championships for the first time, so it was a busy few days.  Georgia, Tiffany and Andrea had recently passed the “Presentation” part of the FISAC judging exam, with Tiffany also passing the “Single Rope Required Elements” part. The team had a lot of fun and met up with lots of old friends as well as making lots of new ones.
