We have a big news for you: the new version of the Vaulting World Marketplace is finally ready! 

Why a Marketplace?

The idea came up because we observed that something was lacking in the Vaulting World: a single place where we could exchange products and services from all around the globe. The Marketplace aims to connect vaulters from anywhere and to help our beautiful sport growing. It is the first and only global and secured platform to exchange any kind of vaulting product or service.

How it works?

You can visit the Marketplace anytime and sign up for free in less than 2min. You will see the most recent listings at the top of the page, but you can use the filters to search for something more specific. 

There are two options: search by item or by location, in case you want to see what is nearby. 

The Vaulting World Marketplace 2.0 is available is several languages:

  • English
  • German
  • French
  • Spanish

What products and services are available?

We create several categories and subcategories in order to cover all needs: 

If you would like to add a category or subcategory, please do not hesitate to contact us!
