OPENING DAY
Gratis activiteit

I am active: The first Frisian sport that our international teams get to know is Skûtsjesilen. After welcoming the teams – by the mayor – a number of residents of Grou will tell the teams about our tradition, the Skûtsjesilen. Also, the participants will experience new and old variations of the Skûtsjesilen: Show Sailing, Disabled Sailing, (BIG) Stand Up Paddling, (Rowing) Sloops. And of course, it will be possible to sail with a Skûtsje. This is a little warm-up. The SKS Championship takes place on August 4th until 17th. This is the contest for the Skûtsje sport.

The afternoon will further be filled with short courses and demonstrations of European sports (including traditional Polynesian canoe, French wine barrel rolling and several Hungarian traditional games). It promises to be a very pleasant and international afternoon during which Grou will show its best side. Come all and join us!

10th Town hall, Leeuwarden Gratis activiteit

I am thinking: We even have a world championship in our programme: the WC Frysk Damjen. The Frisian obstinacy can certainly be found in what is sometimes called the queen among the sports of thinking: Frisian draughts. Frisian draughts is a variation recognized by the International Draughts Federation and is played in many places of the world. The most important difference between this variation and others is that you can strike straight, across and diagonally. This offers more possibilities and therefore, this variation is more difficult.

In 2018, the first World Championship of Frisian draughts takes place in Leeuwarden from August 3rd until 10th. In a week’s time, the sixteen best national and international thinkers play against each other. Draughts is for everyone. That’s why there is a special programme for the youth to get them more involved in the Frysk Damjen.

Every summer for two weeks, the coveted title is being fought for in the Frisian water: who will be the winner of the so-called SKS? Anyone who feels anything for sailing follows closely the battle between the old cargo ships on August 4th until 7th. Skûtsjesilen is synonymous for race sailing with old cargo ships, flatboats that were built at the beginning of the last century to bring peat, manure and other cargo to the farms. A wonderful Frisian tradition that we want to revive for our international teams during the European Sports for All Games.

We are excited: ‘Fier’ means ‘far’ and ‘ljeppen’ is ‘jumping’, so that makes ‘long jumping’! Fierljeppen is a special form of athletics: Sprinting, climbing and jumping simultaneously over the water. In the watery areas of the Netherlands, mainly farmers used in early days a wooden pole to cross small canals. The farmers used the pole as a means of transport from meadow to meadow. Our international teams go to the Fierljeppolder and the Fierljepmuseum. After visiting the museum, they can go into the polder themselves and try it out.
