The regional set work competition was held at Ipswich, where young gymnasts were competing for places in the different age group teams to go to the national finals in November.

There are two paths leading to the finals, one for elite grades and one for club grades, and a number of Waveney Gymnastics Club members made it through.

In the elite grade one competition for boys aged 8/9 Waveney was represented by TJ Carpenter who scored a total of 61.45 to be overall fifth. With three scores over 9.0 - on pommel horse 9.50, vault 9.75 and parallel bars 9.0 - he made the team.

At club grade pre-level one for boys aged 7/8 Noah Scott scored a total of 60.15 to finish second. He managed three scores over the magic 9.0 with pommel 9.15, vault 9.65 and PPP 9.0, which promises well for the future as he is too young to go to national finals this year.

At club grade level one for boys aged 8/9 Aston Charlton scored a total of 60.75 to be placed in the silver medal position. He scored four marks above 9.0 with floor 9.20, pommel 9.40, vault 9.30 and PPP 9.60, and was selected for the team in this age group.

At club grade level two the club was represented by Oliver Wiley and his total of 64.90 overall meant he was the winner of this age group and gold medallist. With five scores above 9.0 it was an excellent performance - floor 9.40, pommel 9.70, rings 9.40, vault 9.80 and PPP 9.40 - to comfortably make the team.

At club grade three Sonny Warboys scored a total of 60.55 with three scores above 9.00, which included 9.05 on floor, 9.30 on pommel and 9.55 on vault. He was placed in overall sixth. Two places behind was Murphy Keeler-Reynolds with a total score of 58.90, which included floor 9.05 and vault 9.35. Both boys just missed out on making the team.

In club grade level four Harley Hawes scored a total of 63 80 to finish in fourth place, which included 9.40 on floor, 9.0 on pommel horse, 9.05 on rings, 9.15 on vault and 9.60 on PPP. In fifth place was Brodie Davis with a total of 63.15, including floor 9.50, pommel 9.40, rings 9.20, vault 9.50 and parallel bars 9.50. Both boys made the team selection.

At club grade five Gregor Belousov also made the team after scoring a total of 63.50 to finish in fourth place overall, which included four scores above 9.00 from rings 9.55, vault 9.60, parallel bars 9.00 and high bar 9.15.
