Saw over 50 new children attend taster sessions at the club.
Women’s Artistic squad competed in their first ever elite compulsory grades. All of the girls passed their grading. We also came away with one bronze and one silver medal.
Our Women’s Sports Acro Trio competed at the Regional championships finishing in a respectable 6th place.
The annual Club competition was held at East London Gymnastics Club. This was an oportunity for our children who train less hours to be involved in a competition. The day was a huge success with lots of medals being handed out meaning a lot of happy gymnasts. All gymnasts worked really hard towards this competition with all of them receiving a t-shirt and certificate. We also had the festival team perform their routine, alongside the Women’s and Men’s artistic squads.
We held further trials and a half term course.
June was a busy month for NELGC!
On the 3rd June we took some of our general gymnasts to Northern zone level 1 & 2 GFA competition.
.We achieved 15 Gold medals, 14 Silver medals and 1 bronze, with many also receiving a pin meaning they move up to the next level for the competition ready to compete next year. For all of these gymnasts this was their first external competition, all of the coaches were very happy with the gymnasts performance. They did NELGC proud!
The Sports Acro had another successful weekend at the Shooting and Tumbling stars competition. The gymnasts achieved 3 gold medals, 2 silver medals and 1 bronze. Well done girls!

In March then 13 of our gymnasts entered the London Regional NDP Tumbling Championships in Bromley. This was our first time entering this event, and some of the gymnasts first ever competition. Each gymnast performed 3 tumble runs consisting of a long linked series of moves progressing from rolls and cartwheels, to roundoffs and backflips. We won 4 medals and many of the other gymnasts were not far off of a podium placing.

Acro Regional Championships
In March then 6 of our acrobatic gymnasts entered the Regional NDP Acrobatic Gymnastics Championships at the Europa Centre. Well done to our G2 trio (Justine Walters, Sinai Reid, Willow Beddard), and our G3 trio (Elektra Voulgaris-Cleare, Matilda Suett, Betsy Brooke-Taylor). On the day then nerves and unfortunate little errors sadly kept us out of the medals against some very tough competition. But the gymnast's routines showed good potential for the upcoming competitions in May and June.
