The third Green League sports event: Slack line – Balance your body
Playing sports in nature is a unique opportunity to reflect on the importance of protecting the environment, but also to explore new interests and make friends. Green League offers you the opportunity to participate for free in 8 sports events related to the four natural elements – earth, air, fire, water.
After Dragon Boat – Between sea and oar and SUP (Stand Up Paddle) – Surfing the world, is the turn of Slack line – Balance your body, the third Green League sports event to be held on Tuesday, Nov. 28.
Slack Line is a balance sport and differs from the art of tightrope walking in a few respects: you walk on a flat webbing and not on a cable or rope, and it does not involve the use of a barbell. In addition, it is a recently popular discipline, as it originated in the United States in the early 1980s.
A unique aspect of Slack Line is that the type of webbing, its length and tension can vary, thus increasing or decreasing the difficulty of the exercise. It is usually tied to two trees in parks, then tensioned and prepared for athletes who will take turns trying to balance on it. This is exactly what we are going to do!
During the event, in fact you will learn the basic techniques of slack line and experience your first suspended steps. An experienced instructor of the sport will be present and will explain everything to you.
We will try the sport outdoors and end the event with a reflection about the natural environment that has been our host all along: the air!
