Slackline Park in Selva Gardena
The first official Slackline-Park of Southtirol in Selva di Val Gardena offers a total of 13 alternatives to mount Slacklines: starting from the beginner line (short) to the Rodeo Line (special technique).

What is slacklining?
Slacklining is a modern sport, similar to tight rope walking, where you walk on a tubular web which is stretched between two anchor points. In tight rope walking the rope is taught and doesn’t move, in slacklining, the tubular web is elastic and moves under the weight of your body. For this reason it is more dynamic and means that participants need concentration, balance, and coordination . This ‘new’ sport offers an ideal additional training technique for such sports as climbing, skiing, combat sports, horse riding, football, tennis and other sports too, where the art of balance is essential. This sport is an ideal inclusion for trainers in each of the above sporting categories, to introduce into their training programmes. This course sets out to give trainers the opportunity to learn the correct techniques of slacklining, which can be then passed on to athletes.
