Summer Season

We always know when summer is upon us, not only do we get the chance to bring out the shorts and t-shirts for that rare bit of sun, but we also have all of our summer displays to enjoy! Somehow it is June and half way through the year, so about time we had a […]

Sharing the goodness.

We hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and the weekend..🌞 We definitely are, our Saturday was spent at Shepperton Village Fair (more on that to come.. along with Alan Pascoe’s Garden Event last weekend). As part of the Spelthorne Blog, we love to bring you all the events, news and competitions throughout the year.. […]

Throwback to National Finals.

So “Gymnast of the month for May” spoke about the success of two of our gymnasts who achieved a silver medal at National Finals, but there were plenty other superstars too. After what seemed like a long wait since qualifiers, our team of 12 Spelthorne Acrobats headed to Stoke last month to try and better […]

Gymnast of the month for May

May was the month of national finals for many of our gymnasts, and such great results had by all. We decided to recognise the achievement of one partnership in particular, two young gymnasts who are thriving. Both have been in the club for a number of years, working their way up from recreational squads to where […]

Gymnast of the month for April..

Gymnast of the month for April? How could we pick? April was such a busy month for our gymnasts, and with April hosting the biggest competition of the year, the World Acrobatic Championships we thought it was only right to recognise the achievements once again. We could have picked any of the 21 gymnasts that […]

More Medals at Worlds!

So last week more of our Spelthorne Superstars were in Belgium to take their turn on the floor. Our 12-18, 13-19 and Senior gymnasts competed at the World Championships. For most of them it was their first time at Worlds, so a huge achievement to have been picked to represent team GB. But an even […]

11-16 Age Group World Championships

What did you want to be when you were a child? A teacher, Doctor or Actor maybe? I bet none of you said I want to be an Acrobatic World Champion, especially with Acrobatics not receiving the recognition other disciplines receive, it would be hard to imagine. I bet our gymnasts did not imagine this […]

Easter Competition

So somehow Easter is here, and we thought how better to celebrate than with a competition? Everyone enjoyed getting involved last summer and at Christmas so we thought we would challenge you all again. Recently some of our gymnasts attended GymFusion in London, a huge event that sees gymnasts from clubs up and down the […]

Gymnast of the month for March is..

It has been a busy March, our gymnasts working as hard as ever, but we did manage to choose a gymnast of the month for March. With so many competitions happening both acro and tumbling, parent viewing, badge testing and displays it was difficult to choose a gymnast. The gymnast chosen is extremely dedicated, both […]

Turning To The Tumbling Team!

So, we are moving away briefly from acro to our tumbling team! Spelthorne’s tumblers headed to Kent on Sunday for their turn to try and nab a spot on the tumble team and for Finals. We had over 30 gymnasts complete their tumble passes at club and national level. With only one pass of each […]
