Double Dutch Holiday Classic

The National Double Dutch League returns to the legendary Apollo stage for the annual Double Dutch Holiday Classic. Don’t miss this family-friendly event which features world-class championship Double Dutch teams of all ages, from the United States and the world, as they compete for team positions at the national and international events. 


In 1973, David A. Walker, then a New York City Police Community Affairs Detective, developed the street game of Double Dutch into the World Class Sport that it is today. Since that initial tournament, competitive Double Dutch has expanded with citywide and national championships. 

The NDDL 32nd Annual, David A. Walker Memorial, Double Dutch Holiday Classic makes possible speed and music fusion events for the best Double Dutch teams in the world. Each year, since 1991, the Double Dutch Holiday Classic has sold out to parent-supported, standing room only audiences.

Double Dutch Holiday Classic is part of The Apollo’s Fall/Winter 2023 season
