Easter Sunday saw Richard's Trampoline Club at the Eastern regional grading competition in Brentwood.

Five dedicated performers attended despite the special day and the fact that it was snowing.

Being a graded competition means if the qualification score is achieved, then this permits the trampolinist to progress to the next grade.

At grade three, Bradley Sapsford competed for his second time at this level. He had struggled slightly with the higher difficulty level, but handled it well showing good improvement.

He narrowly missed out on the gold medal to finish in second place.

At grade four, Becky Hales showed tremendous improvement, and she completed two superb routines showing much improved confidence.

She maintained the lead all the way through the competition and finished first by quite a large margin.

Scott Crowhurst did really well competing for the first time at grade four, and with using a new, higher difficulty level voluntary routine.

He handled the transition well, and finished in fifth place.

Levi Rimmer also did extremely well - she has been working on her form and it showed in both her routines as her marks are steadily increasing.

She just needs to increase her difficulty level now.

The standard was high in her group though and she did well to finish in sixth place.

At grade five, Joseph Pridmore did some good routines and he is starting to show a lot more confidence now.

A small error in his voluntary routine though left him just outside the medals in fourth place.
