Hi JwW,

Welcome to Juggling Edge.

You can mark on the Juggling Edge listing for your club any weeks it will not be meeting.


#NCStateJugglingClub - because everyone loves hashtags

Wow! That's some staying power.

That is pretty impressive, which made me wonder which was the oldest juggling club.

Only a fifth of the 955 active juggling clubs listed on Juggling Edge have given their start date (or "Established date")

The oldest is Santelli in Netherlands which was established in 1962.

Top Ten Oldest Juggling Clubs listed on Juggling Edge

  • 1. (58 years) Santelli
  • 2. (50 years) Oxford City Juggling Club
  • 3. (45 years) MIT / Boston Area juggling club
  • 4. (43 years) Texas Juggling Society
  • 5. (42 years) Atlanta Jugglers Association
  • 5. (42 years) Safety in Numbers
  • 8. (41 years) Cascade Jugglers
  • 9. (40 years) Nottingham Juggling Club
  • 9. (40 years) Jest Jugglers
  • 10. (39 years) Stanford Court Jugglers


Seven of the ten oldest clubs are in US, this might be due to amateur juggling clubs starting earlier in the US, US clubs being better at recording their start dates or more US clubs listing themselves on Juggling Edge.

[Incidentally, the Juggling Edge listing for North Carolina State Juggling Club says they were established in 1992 not the early 1980s - so that might need changing or the date checking.]

I'm not certain if people have been meeting at Santelli for juggling that long, I'll met a bunch of Santelli regulars last weekend but didn't know I needed to ask this, haha! Will do next time I run into them :)

It's a youth circus with a long history indeed, the date is the origin date of the youth circus.

Oops! Was looking at the wrong data.

Correction:

Only a fifth of the 955 juggling clubs listed on Juggling Edge have given their start date (or "Established date"), but half of the active clubs have a start date.

Hmm, the established date of #Altern8 seemed to have disappeared. I've just put it back (year only). Should this date be visible on the club's page? 'Cos it's not.

Apart from right at the top of the page, of course. Ahem.
