Springfit kicked off Olympic year with another fantastic trampoline competition for children and adults from all over the county on Saturday. The tri-annual event attracted over 100 spectators and supporters this time round, with around seventy proud competitors taking part at Moor House School Sports Centre in Oxted.
The superb venue welcomed trampolinists from various local clubs and schools throughout Surrey to compete in various age and ability categories, and provided many happy children with winners medals. Not only children either, as the event was extended to offer keen adults the chance to compete in a fun and friendly atmosphere for the first time. With over fifteen adult classes offered by the various clubs involved in the competition, the popularity of this section is expected to grow as more grown-ups realise how good trampolining is for you!
The younger competitors also showed fantastic spirit in their determination to perform the best routine they could for the judging panel. In both entry-level grades and advanced levels, the spectacular moves were met with smiles of confidence and pride by those taking part as well as the watching parents and proud coaches. The medal ceremonies saw some delighted winners enjoying the surprise of winning a medal. Everyone took home a certificate of achievement too.
Head judge Adam Reynolds said of the competition “It’s great to see the event getting more popular and the winners coming from all over. Not just our staple clubs in Caterham, Oxted and Horley, but from K2 in Crawley right up to Thornton Heath. Well done to everyone who took part!”
