WITH further national and international exposure, the Waveney Gymnnastics Club facility continues to grow from strength to strength.

And they're gearing up for an even busier few months ahead, as some of the club's talented youngsters compete at regional and national competitions and training camps - while the centre hosts some top class gymnasts, camps and competitions as well.

WITH further national and international exposure, the Waveney Gymnnastics Club facility continues to grow from strength to strength.

And they're gearing up for an even busier few months ahead, as some of the club's talented youngsters compete at regional and national competitions and training camps - while the centre hosts some top class gymnasts, camps and competitions as well.

Boosted by a “very successful” training camp for the Men's and Women's Scottish Gymnastics teams recently, as they prepare for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the teams stayed at the Broadland Holiday Village locally.

“Their national coach presented the club with a commemorative flag signed by all of the gymnasts and thanked all members of the club and staff for helping them make the most of their stay, while t-shirts were given to all of the gymnasts and delegates to mark their visit, kindly sponsored by Pakefield Flowers,” centre manager Vikki Rogers told The Journal.

Later this year, the centre in Southwell Road will host an elite summer camp for the national GB U12 squad - with Lowestoft youngster Giarnni Regini-Moran set to team up with his national teammates.

40 of the top young gymnasts will also descend on Lowestoft on Friday, July 23 for the regional girl's summer camp, while the club will also be taking part in the Suffolk Show and a special open day to tie in with the national 2012 weekend on Lowestoft's Royal Green in late July.

And later this year, the club will host British Gymnastics National Veterans Competition for the first-ever time.

“This is the biggest veterans' competition on the British Gymnastics calendar as gymnasts from all over the country - men and women - will be competing at Waveney Gym Club on Saturday, September 25,” Miss Rogers said.

With the club's talented pool of gymnasts continuing to make their coaches “very proud” of their achievements, regional finals will be held this weekend while the National Compulsory finals take place next weekend, with the Waveney club set to be well-represented.

The club's flourishing pre-school section will hold their inaugural open event for proud parents on May 23. Dedicated specifically to the club's talented tots - all aged between three and five years old - more than 70 youngsters will show off their new-found skills at the centre.

And further developing the club's ethos of providing the highest level of coaching and care to all, they are looking to start specific wheelchair trampolining group classes - open to children and adults - in forthcoming weeks.

“This is something very new to us, but we are hoping to attract more interest in this and for more information telephone us on 01502 501419 or email waveneygym@aol.com” Miss Rogers said.
