It's been a while since Balders wrote about the new subgenre "Pitch Run". The club continues to try the shoe outside the court, now with a "Street Pitch"!
It was with beautiful spring sun that parts of Balders HSK's board (Fredrik & Pascal) took on a Street Pitch. It all ended with a lunch at the SALT & SEA restaurant in the newly built harbor area in Norrtälje.
5x5 shoes, a total of 25 throws in 5 different places in urban environment. Feel free to grab a bite to eat or a glass during the pitching, it harmonizes your Street Pitch.
“A charming, cool and really soft activity that forces you to see the city with new eyes. As a "walk and talk" now fixed as "walk and talk and pitch"!"
For who Anyone can run a Street Pitch. Old as young, trained as untrained. Suitable for an evening walk with a friend, or for a Monday lunch with colleagues. Or why not on a date in the sign of love with a final bubble in the glass in the park?
Participant Number of participants is recommended from 2 upwards. But remember, the more people you take, the longer it takes.
Equipment One outdoor stick and five horseshoes.
When A Street Pitch is played best in Sweden from April to the end of September. Time Depends entirely on how far the distance is between the places you pitch at and the number of participants. Expect at least 30 minutes for 2 participants with about 100m distance between the pitches.
Summary A charming, cool and really soft activity that forces you to see the city with new eyes. As a "walk and talk" now fixed as "walk and talk and pitch"! Balders now hopes that all horseshoe pitchers will be sucked into trying a Street Pitch. Help us spread the sport, make you visible and do it with joy!
