Richard's Trampoline Club entered a massive team of 36 performers at the recent Ipswich Open.

This competition covered all levels and gave their beginners chance to compete and the more experienced performers chance to try out harder routines without the pressure of a graded competition.

At grade one the club had just Elliot Stratton, who two years ago at this same competition was competing at grade six!

He was trying out his hardest routine yet, with four double somersaults, and he finished in second place.

There was plenty of success at grade two with Lauren Jones and Charlie Mussino both gaining first place in their groups.

Lisa Withey and Natasha Rastogi narrowly missed out on medals and both were fourth within their groups.
