National Double Dutch Open 2007

 St Hilda's Primary School Team aged 7, 10 and 10.

 They are the youngest team

NDDO 2007 was held at Tampines East CC auditorium from 2pm to 4.30pm on Saturday 24th February. It was an entertaining competition for spectators and competitors.

Regardless of age and skipping years, any team that puts in the effort will succeed at the NDDO as can be seen from The Jumping Jewels (age 7, 10, 13) winning over the YTzens (age 13, 13, 14), Team X-Jump (age 15, 19, 21) and the Frogs (aged 13, 13, 17). Such is the credo of NDDO.

Epilogue

Some will remember the competitor salute at the opening ceremony. For others the highlight of NDDO was Bernard our MC breaking into two songs while waiting for the results The two special events after the prize giving (the record breaking attempt and the AW Cup workshop) made NDDO even more entertaining for everyone.

Technically much time was saved with all NDDO music preloaded in an iMac and wirelessly transmitted to the auditorium sound system. This is a first in the world. We also use a very accurate Seiko sports clock for the timed events.

Our TV cameraman took the above arty video. This may just start a trend. NDDO defines the way rope skipping competitions will be organised.
