Up for the challenge?

The Queen's Jubilee marks her 70th year as monarch and, to mark the occasion, we want to set you an old-school skipping challenge - which was very popular back in the 50s!

Simply film yourself, your team or someone else, doing as many skips as possible in one go without stopping or falling over, then send that video to us!

We have prizes up for grabs too... for solo entrants you could win a brand new iPad or, for groups/teams it's a set of Beats headphones - not bad eh?!

The winner(s) will be the person who does the most skips in one go, it's that easy. 

Anyone can get involved and there is a prize for each of the following age groups:

  • 0-10
  • 11-17
  • 18+
  • Teams (of up to five people) - the prize is a set of Beats headphones for everyone in the group

If you don't have a skipping rope then register your details below and we'll send you one. If you're overseas then we can provide one at selected locations but please note that there is a delay in getting them to selected locations due to custom delays, so speak to your local BFBS station if you need one - find your local BFBS office location here!

If you are wanting to take part in the group category, and don't have a large skipping rope, then come and see our team at any event where BFBS will be stationed and we'll sort you out!
