Five members from Richard's Trampoline Club travelled down to Surrey for the first grade two nationals of the year.

Sunday's event was a massive competition with more than 400 entries.

Charlie Mussino was last up and will now join the country's elite at grade one.

He completed some fantastic routines and maintaining his form during both, he easily achieved the required scores.

Her voluntary routine was much better and this showed in her marks.

Having started trampolining less than a year ago, she should be proud of how well she performed.

Fair has worked hard to gain the moves he needs for this level of competition.

He successfully got through both routines, although lacking in the good form that he is more than capable of.

Overall, it was a great start at grade two for both of them as the jump from regional to national level is quite a large one.

Rosannamay Cannon had a superb day. Having moved up an age group this year, it meant her difficulty level had to increase.

Starting with her compulsory set routine, she found some extra height which gave her more time for lineouts.

Continuing on with her voluntary routine doing just as well, she only missed retaining her grade two qualification by 0.3 of a mark.

Kasey Kilday successfully got through both routines.

He found some extra height but a couple of wobbles led to some unwanted travel in a couple of the somersaults.

Just needing to improve his lineouts further, he has shown great improvement since competing at grade two last year.
