On Sunday 7th November, local gym clubs competed in a two-part gymnastics competition at Oakwood Sports Centre, Horley. The disciplines of individual floor routines and vaults were scored by a panel of judges, and medals were awarded to those who performed best in their age and difficulty category.

The standard of competition was raised once again, with children performing twisting handspring vaults, and launching into somersaults from the floor. There was plenty of enthusiasm from the crowd, and they made lots of noise in encouragement for the athletes.

The afternoon was rounded off by a display from the newly formed Springfit ‘team gym’ squad, who delighted the crowd with choreographed moves and dance elements on the gym floor. Head judge Adam Reynolds said of the event “everyone here thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was great to see the gymnasts take such encouragement from the relaxed friendly competition environment”.

Pictured below are four of the medal winners from the Advanced category, all representing the host club, Springfit:
Katie Pidgeon (13), Amber Clifton (15), Abbie Clifton (12) and Lucy Pidgeon (9).
