Merchandise

With New and Second Hand Club and non Club Leotards, girls velour shorts, boys training kits, t-shirts, tracksuits, hoodies, handguards etc for sale. If the shop is closed please speak to a member of the admin team.

Gym Tour

We are proud of our club. We get no help with running costs, we have never received lottery funding and we rely on volunteers. Most of our coaches are volunteers who give up their free time to train your children and run the club.

 

Over the years we have accumulated equipment worth over £70,000. It costs over £60,000 a year to run the club, which mainly comes from fees charged, fund raising, and generous donations from organisations such as Nationwide Building Society, Evening Advertiser, W H Smiths and others. We try to keep fees down to a minimum, but without volunteer help fees will go up!

Application Form

We try and take a new intake each term for each relevant age group filter class, but it depends on how many children move groups or leave us, as to the amount of new starters we can welcome in.
