    Double Dutch

    Double Dutch is a game in which two long jump ropes turning in opposite directions are jumped by one or more players jumping simultaneously.

    While Double Dutch began in the inner cities of America, it is growing in popularity throughout the US and the world.
    Playing double dutch involves at least three people: one or more jumping, and two turning the ropes. The ones holding the ropes are called the turners. A jumper usually performs tricks that may involve gymnastics or breakdance, and may also incorporate fancy foot movements.

    Double dutch is often accompanied by singing to help the players stay in rhythm.
    Double Dutch competitions are categorized as compulsory, freestyle, and speed rope.
