Richard's Trampoline Club were at Ipswich for their annual open competition.

This competition catered for all the grades.

Nicky Ledwold was competing at grade one for the first time.

He successfully completed his routines, using a new and harder voluntary routine, and finished in second place.

At grade two, Lauren Doherty had a small amount of travel in her routines when she competed but it was still enough for third place.

Danny Fair was trying out some new routines and he maintained excellent height throughout, showing some nice line-outs.

During his set routine, he suffered a small amount of travel, causing him to finish just outside the medals in fourth.

At grade three, Natasha Rastogi produced some excellent routines. There was a small amount of travel after a distraction during her set routine but she recovered well to finish in second place.

Lizzie Mercer finished just outside the medals in fourth.

Jo Collins produced two excellent routines at grade four, just rushing a couple of somersaults.

She easily finished in first place and will be hoping to qualify for grade three next month.

Sophie Perks was trying out a new much harder voluntary routine and she completed it well to finish in fourth place.

There was plenty of success at grade six for the club.

Amy Rayfield was competing for the first time in a massive group and she successfully completed her routines and easily won.

Scott Crowhurst also competed for the first time; he completed his routines but will need to work harder on his form marks. However, he still did enough to finish in first place.

Orla McGill finished in second place and Emma Deering in third.
