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.
Huge congratulations to skippers Georgia Toay and Tiffany Branscombe who have just returned with their Kingston team-mates Harry and Sam Cross from Aalborg in Denmark where they competed in the European Rope Skipping Championships. They won bronze medals in the pairs double dutch speed relay which is fast becoming their special event. They also narrowly missed out on another bronze medal in the speed and double under relay. They achieved new personal bests in both speed events and most of their routines. Overall they came seventh in the mixed team competition against the best in Europe.
In the individual Masters competition, Georgia came 20th after a fantastic freestyle routine and Tiffany finished just behind on 22nd after smashing her own club 3 minute speed record. Please go to Galleries for photos and videos of the team.
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!
