Facilities

The club has a large gymnasium which holds the main apparatus needed for Women’s Artistic Gymnastics at all levels from beginner to national elite.

The club has two sets of uneven or asymmetrical bars. These can be configured in many ways to suit all sizes, ages and gymnast ability.

Separate Vault run up and landing area which can be adapted from competition specification to a more forgiving surface. This enables the girls to perform the hundreds of repetitions required to achieve a somersault vault but without the risk of overuse injuries.
