World YoYo Social Community Map
Yo-Yo has been around for almost 100 years since Donald F. Duncan founded Duncan toys in 1930. With the regularisation of the World yoyo contest(WYYC) in the 21st century, yoyo has evolved from a toy to a competitive sport, with professional competition rules, product specifications, and community culture.
However, with the small size of the yoyo community and the difficulty of learning the skills, yoyo players have had to use social media more than any other competitive sport to share ideas, gain information and make friends. Especially with the explosion of covid, offline yoyo events have become more challenging to organize, making yoyo players even more dependent on social media to communicate about yoyo. And for a new yoyo player, there may only be a few or even no one throwing in his city, which can make learning to throw even more complicated, so meeting yoyo players through social media is probably the best way to go.
We have therefore compiled a social media map of the yoyo community covering as much of the world as possible so that yoyo players can find the social media groups they are interested in more efficiently. You are not alone in your throw; yoyo players worldwide are your friends.
National yo-yo community map:
There are now communities of different sizes in each country, depending on the development of yoyo in that country, in the form of Facebook groups, forums, or websites. Finding the yoyo community in your country will allow you to find yoyo plays in your country very efficiently.
