“Competitions provide a brilliant platform for the gymnasts to grow and learn important life skills. Many gymnasts got to meet their idols and chat to the Great Britain coaching team.

“As a club we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team of coaches and parents giving up their time to help and support.”
