We have an extensive, dedicated gymnastics centre at GL1 providing a programme for children from walking age right through to adults.
We welcome all children, both those new to gymnastics or experienced gymnasts. Classes are led by British Gymnastics qualified coaches.
Taking part in gymnastics has a wealth of benefits such as increasing flexibility, strength, coordination and balance. It’s also a fun and engaging learning environment for children to grow social and physical skills. Our lessons allow children to enjoy exploring, inventing, practicing and performing whilst encouraging them to have fun, make friends and be healthy.
We are thrilled to be able to welcome children back to our Pre-school Gymnastics Programme.
To ensure everyone is safe and having a great time we have made some changes
- Class numbers are small, greater coach to child experience
- Increased cleaning and hand sanitizing stations
- Pre booking only
- Directional signage around the building
- Limited Taster sessions available pre booking required
- An e-mail will be sent to once booking for the course has been made to confirm details
- Booking on line or via phone 01452 396688
