What is Slackline Sports?

2019-10-18T04:46:38+02:00

Slacklining is a young and emerging sport with many disciplines and athletes who compete in these. Many definitions of “Sport” actually include competitions as one of the core elements and slacklining is no exception. However, while one might be able to define slacklining as a sport, it is not recognised as an official sport in any country. This means there is little public and private funding available for events, gear and development.

Each of these dimensions of slackline are part of the same global movement. Therefore, it is our aim to embrace and nurture each and every one of them. This goal has recently led us to create an international ranking list for slackline athletes. The [...]
