We LOVE Skipping
Rope skipping is arguably Australia’s oldest recreational activity and Australia’s newest sport. Rope skipping has historically been a popular pastime for children, but in 2018 the amazing sport of skipping was admitted to be a member of the Olympic family (achieving GAISF Observer status) and Skipping Australia was recognised by SportAus as a national sporting organisation.
Skipping NT is committed to 'shaking off' our sport's school-yard activity image. We are focused on sharing the multi-dimensional nature of competitive rope skipping and growing participation, throughout the Territory.
