In 1973, David Walker, a NYC Police Community Affairs detective at the time, joined forces with partner, Detective Ulysses Williams to breathe a second life into the sport. They developed the game into a competitive team sport and the first Double Dutch Tournament was held in February 1974. The American Double Dutch League was formed by David Walker around the same time and the sport has grown in popularity, both nationally and internationally ever since. Double Dutch Jump Rope is a popular fixture at the Annual Street Games event hosted by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. Every year, during the month of December, the National Double Dutch League sponsors a holiday classic competition dedicated to founder, David Walker.
