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 the results that we have, not only from the obvious; the coaches and gymnasts, but the wider support teams we have. Parents, friends, family, fundraisers, our local community and organisations. All the effort and time given from these bodies has made 2017 great and we are lucky to have the support from you all.

So where do we start? 2017 has played host to a number of competitions, from friendly and regional competitions to national and international competitions. Gymnasts not only from elite, but also from our general classes and preparational squads have attended the various competitions and the results have been phenomenal. Not just the results in terms of medals, but the growth in confidence and performance from all gymnasts is lovely to see.

This year Spelthorne gymnasts have added to our roll of honour, building on the success of the club. British, European and World titles among some .. all in a day’s work for these guys! And the success has not gone unnoticed. Spelthorne have caught the eye of many from the BBC and British Gymnastics alike this year.. being featured numerous times on BBC News- with the opening of the new gym and with the lead up to Europeans. British gymnastics also recognising the success and talent of our elite squads, featuring them on the BG Facebook page and website. Furthermore, gifting our Senior Men’s Four with “Outstanding Athlete of the Year Award”. A great accolade to top of their career.

Alongside competitions, events held inside and outside the gym such as: family nights, fundays, fundraisers, displays and Halloween and Christmas parties are also important to recognise. Bringing together gymnasts, staff, friends, and family to celebrate a shared interest, a family feeling that unites the club and helps the club to keep growing.  A friendly bond between all makes Spelthorne a very happy place to be, and it has shown, with growing numbers and feedback of what a lovely atmosphere the gym creates. Something we are very proud of.

With so much to look back on, we thought we would do a little throwback for you, here are our highlights for 2017. Photos, Videos and Links to all the received coverage!
