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 meets monthly to provide skipping classes to children aged 5+. We teach the basic skills right up to advanced levels. 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.


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.
