Back to the tumble team

From a weekend of hosting to a weekend of attending. Last weekend it was all about the Acrobatic cup, but this weekend the spotlight was back on the tumbling. We had another big team of tumblers head to Gillingham to compete in the Bourne Tumbling Competition. Gymnasts competed either Club or NDP level tumbles for […]

Spelthorne Acrobatic Cup

Last weekend we played host to the Spelthorne Acrobatic Cup. It was a first for us but all the hard work from the staff and helpers made for a successful weekend of competition. You never know how well something will run when you are trying it out for the first time, of course we have […]

Hollington Invitational: A flicking success!

Last weekend was the first competition of the year for our Spelthorne Tumblers. Gymnasts from a range of classes competed at different levels at the Hollington invitational. For some, it was their first EVER competition, so a huge well done to them! For others it was a warm up competition for many other tumbling competitions […]

Grades Group Kick Starting January!

So last weekend was the first performance of the year, our Grades Group easing us in to January and getting rid of those January blues with a stunning performance. The ever growing Grades Group looked strong and mighty in the Elmsleigh Centre in Staines (possibly more gymnasts than shoppers!). They showed off their acrobatic moves […]

Saying goodbye to 2017!

A look back at what has been a fab 2017! There were so many highlights of 2017, competition results, the grand opening of the new gym, the welcoming of new gymnasts and staff and the continued success and expansion of the gym. It takes a lot of people and a lot of time to achieve […]

Gymnast of the month for December…

For December we thought we would mix it up a little, after such a successful year we found it was too difficult to choose one gymnast to highlight for December. Therefore we decided to recognise the achievements of multiple gymnasts, those who all won awards at the recent Christmas Displays. Our Christmas displays always seem […]

Christmas Competition

Although things around us may be wrapping up for Christmas, (like the last gym sessions this week and probably for most of you, the last days of school this week too) gymnasts never completely stop! So just because you may not be at gym, it doesnโ€™t mean you cannot be practising! ๐Ÿ˜Š Christmas holidays are […]

Thank You Mike Coombs!

As you already know the fundraising team are always behind the scenes supporting the club. Not only with raising money but giving their time at events, such as the displays we have just had. They are busy not only on the night, but just like the coaches and gymnasts, weeks and months before preparing to […]
