History

Founded by Irene Gilchrist in 1984 with 20 or so gymnasts, our journey started at Kingshill School and the focus was on artistic gymnastics.  Our gymnasts were soon entering competitions against Tetbury, Fromeside and Forest of Dean. Producing gymnasts who went on to regional success representing the South West.

We outgrew the gymnasium and moved to Deer Park School in 2004 where we rapidly grew to over 400 active members with over 20 coaches, training 4 days a week. We now regularly run 2 full sessions concurrently across all ages and doing more styles of gymnastics than ever before from preschool to adults, freestyle to cheerleading!
