  • In the 1930s, during the era, children often jumped rope because the game required only a used clothesline to be played. By the late 1950s, however, a number of municipal and societal factors—such as the desire to keep children from playing in city streets and the availability of other games for children in upwardly mobile families—had decreased its popularity. However, jumping rope and double Dutch experienced a renaissance in the late 20th century, to the point that rope jumping became a competitive sport, with various double Dutch rope skipping leagues coming into existence around the world and tournaments being held throughout the year.

    The Trinidad and Tobago Jump Rope Federation held their 2nd annual Jump Rope and Double Dutch National Championships this past weekend at the Jean Pierre Complex.
