The ESF, which has a Traveller and non-Traveller Committee working together, are part of a growing network of international clubs, and last year an English team went to compete in the Slingshot World Cup in Italy.

The fast- growing sport may soon become an Olympic event, says Keith, and the international competitions are an important step towards that goal.
