Last month we were invited along to the annual tumbling competition hosted by our sister club Pointers in Warlingham. Gymnasts from five other clubs across Surrey also took part.
The spectacular discipline of tumbling is a pleasure to watch for proud parents, as gymnasts link one impressive move after another, along a strip of floor matting. The more basic levels include moves such as forward rolls, cartwheels and jumps, through to the higher grades that involve back flips, somersaults and handsprings. It’s truly a highlight of many people’s gymnastic calendar.
As people have come to expect (from the competitions we organise and take part in) the event was a friendly, fun day in a relaxed atmosphere with many spectators coming along to support the children, and lots of photographs to commemorate it.
The gymnasts from Springfit did so well and five of them came away with medals for their excellent performances.
Eloise Bassett won a very well deserved gold medal. Jazmine Hogan narrowly missed a gold medal but came away with silver and Eloise Murphy, Mica Harris and Eloise Budd all won bronze. Well done to all of our gymnasts that took part.
