Jolly jumpers visit Penticton schools

A pair of world-class rope jumpers were in Penticton this week to pass along some of their skills to local enthusiasts.

Wouter and his twin brother Willem were in the city for two days visiting area schools and working with the local competitive team the Black Widow Rope Spinners. Jump Rope BC funded the pair to spend two weeks in the province helping teams. The men have performed all over the world including at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.    Our Provincial Organization: Jump Rope B.C. funded two top Belgium skippers to come to B.C. to work with the competitive teams across the province. Our local team “ The Black Widow Rope Spinners” is the first team that they are working with. They will then travel through the province over the next two weeks and visit teams in Nelson
