We are a new club with over 31 years combined experience behind us. The club specialises in recreational gymnastics, TeamGym, Trampolining, Disabilities and Pre-school gymnastics. With 42 coaches / volunteers we strive to offer gymnastics to our community.
Our program of activities will develop as the club develops and establishes itself in its new setting. We will be working alongside the university to promote the club in the community and gymnastics for all ages. As we develop, our equipment will expand and form a centre of excellence for future gymnasts.
We welcome all new members and hope you enjoy our club.
