It was a successful day for Richard's Trampoline Club at the Eastern regional grading competition in Ipswich.
Being a graded competition, if the qualification score was achieved, then the trampolinist can progress to the next grade.
Michael Sheff was on top form at grade four and easily qualified for the next grade. Despite a small amount of travel in both routines, he maintained excellent form and finished in second place.
Paige Maranian - who joined the club during the summer, also had an excellent day in her first grading competition. She struggled during her set routine but put in a superb voluntary routine to gain the qualifying marks for grade three and finish in third place.
Also, at grade four, Jack Bastin narrowly missed out on a medal, finishing in fourth place.
Jo Collins finished in fifth place and came close to qualifying for grade three in her first attempt at a grading competition.
