Timbersports Training

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of clubs/teams/individuals around the South West offering training in Timbersports? I can’t seem to find anything online. 


Is it a big thing in the UK other than when Stihl roll into town? Or is the only practical approach to train yourself?

Thanks for tagging us in Steve. Yes, we generally do a TIMBERSPORTS taster weekend in Spring every year although we don't have anything confirmed for next year yet. We have a list of people that want to be notified once the training camp dates are released - if you drop an email to timbersports@stihl.co.uk asking about the taster weekend, we can add you to the list.


In the meantime, it's probably also worth contacting the British Lumberjack Sports Association. You can find more info about them on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1678770722358615/

This group is for anyone who is involved in lumberjack sports so you can post where you live and someone is likely to come back to you and let you know the nearest local group you could join. If there aren't any clubs close by, they are also usually pretty helpful when it comes to tips on training as well.

I hope that helps, but let us know if you need any other info.
