Lots of new friends were made with both gymnasts and coaches and a great time was had by everybody. Thank you for joining us! We hope to see everyone again soon!

Junior European Camp

Junior European Camp

After 4 weeks of intensive training at the Junior European Camp, Leah left for home. Reserve although fantastic is a hard job as you have to follow the program and do the numbers knowing there is no end result but Leah was brilliant and has been a credit to the club. She has worked so hard and delivered at every control comp the girls have done and loved every minute. A fabulous experience, it has made her hungry for more and will set her up for the future. A great team and a lovely bunch of gir[..]

Foam Pit Restoration

Foam Pit Restoration

A 3 day shutdown in the middle of July saw even more 'pink' added to our already very 'pink palace' as we transformed our pits from old grey foam into brand new pink and grey socked foam!
Day 1 involved emptying all 3 of our large pits out and getting rid of the old foam and cleaning the spaces it came from! The next 2 days were all hands on deck as 10,000 brand new pieces of foam needed to be covered and tied individually by hand ready to replace the old foam. We are so grateful and thankful[..]
