Myrtle Help with playing 'Chinese Jump Rope' (57* d) RE: Chinese Jump Rope 08 Dec 06

Wow, that's a bit more upbeat than the very serious and sedate Chinese skipping I remember!!
I could never do double dutch, but used to do single rope skipping. We called the people holding the rope 'twiners', poss from'twine' (string or rope) or more likely a Yorkshire version of 'turn'...we used to say "I'll twine".I remember my grandmother, who was from Hull, doubling up laughing at me using this expression!
Regards, Myrtle.
