about us

Who We Are

Founded in 2017, JUMP LDN is a London-based organisation promoting a long history of Double Dutch skipping, which has been used since the 1970s in America as a tool for promoting health and wellbeing. 

We celebrate the connection between Double Dutch, positive mental health, and emotional wellbeing, empowering people who may not be engaged in mainstream sports to be active.

We are a collective of Double Dutch enthusiasts who are passionate that Double Dutch skipping can inspire and change communities for the better. We have come together to introduce people to the many benefits of Double Dutch and the culture of community that it promotes.

Our sessions naturally encourage people to live healthier lifestyles, increase connection, and social-emotional well-being and provide an opportunity for play.

We draw on the network of existing worldwide coaches and jumpers to promote Double Dutch and strengthen our project.

Why Double Dutch?

Double Dutch can be used as a tool that teaches leadership and social skills such as communication, teamwork, and resilience.

It is a simple, low cost & practical sport, you only need a rope and some space!

It can prevent barriers starting in primary school by providing an alternative to competitive mainstream sports.

It promotes living an active lifestyle and improves cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, stamina levels, flexibility, and coordination.

 Provides positive role models and peers, an increased opportunity at experiencing a safe, positive environment for people to grow, learn and develop their creativity.

 Double Dutch is a powerful tool for tapping into self-esteem through an easy-to-learn skill that encourages mental and physical development.
