Richard's Trampoline Club went to the annual open competition in Ipswich.

For some youngsters it was their first ever competition with the club, while others were trying out new, harder routines.

At grade two, Kasey Kilday and Rosannamay Cannon were competing against each other in the same group.

After the voluntary routines they both had the same total score, so it was decided in the final with 0.1 separating them!

Kasey finished just outside the medals in fourth and Rosannamay in fifth place.

At grade three, Clara Williams did some great routines. There was a small error in her voluntary routine, but she covered it well by amending the order of somersaults in her routine.
