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 […]

More medals in Maia!!

It is March, although this weather may not agree? Despite all the snow our gymnasts made it to Maia, just about! Maia Acro Cup is one of our favourite internationals of the year, we love it because we can send a variety of our squads – from grades to elite. A nice atmosphere for the […]

National Qualifiers

While most of us were probably sitting in the warmth, enjoying a snow day or just avoiding the sub-zero temperatures, some of our gymnasts and coaches had to venture out. Although I am sure they didn’t mind too much, a chance to compete and secure a place at Nationals. Sunday was the day for the […]

Gymnast of the month for February is..

We are back with gymnast of the month! I know, you must have been wondering where we have been as the last time we featured a gymnast was December! However, we decided to let gymnasts and coaches settle back into the term after Christmas and also give new gymnasts a chance to be considered. So, […]
