Some of our gymnasts got a nice surprise watching Gym Stars on CBBC when the show featured the British Championships and showed footage of them supporting Lauren at the British Championships this year. The show is a big hit with many of our gymnasts!!
The new foam and covers for the blocks have arrived!!! This Saturday helpers from our competition squads will be emptying the old foam from the pit and replacing it with new foam with sleeves. Well done and thank you to all those who fund raised to make this possible, especially those who took part in our sponsored sit up earlier in the year. The new foam will benefit all centre users and is designed to be more durable than our previous style of blocks. For those taking part in next weeks Summer camp the big foam build should be one of our most fun yet!!!
