25 - 26 of June
On the weekend of 25 and 26 June all of our squad gymnasts competed at the London Championships. This was our first in person competition as a full club after 2 and half years, a name change, some new coaches and some new gymnasts too!
It was brilliant to see so many girls winning medals. Many of the categories (especially the junior level 1 category) were very competitive with lots of gymnasts!
Well done to all of our gymnasts, coaches, judges, parents and volunteers who helped make the weekend and the great results possible.

On 19 June our gymnasts were part of AEB Gym’s 2nd Kyolis Cup online competition. We recorded our routines to enter in advance. Our gymnasts competed against other gymnasts from across the world - from France and Germany to the USA, Australia , Japan and Taiwan. We had some excellent results and scores. All scores were considered overall regardless of the apparatus used.

19 and 20 February 2022
Two of our espoirs, Amelie and Naama competed in the Zone A regional grades to try and gain the scores necessary to qualify for national championships.
They both performed well, despite changes to the code on 14 February meaning some last minute changes had to be made to their routines. It was their first time competing in a competition at this level and with this pressure attached to it.
We are very proud of their achievements.

A group of our senior girls competed in the online international competition ‘5th open Yves Barboussat’.
They competed against girls from around the world from France and Germany to Japan and Australia. They did brilliantly, even with the rankings being only for all around when girls were not competing on the same apparatus.

Anaya Senior 2005+ level B - second place overall (performing with ball and clubs)
Zulema Senior 2005+ level B - fourth place overall (performing with ball and clubs)
Thank you to coaches Franziska and Ama for organising the recording and Melissa for judging over 200 other routines online.

Rhythmic Excellence - Friendly Tournament
Saturday 22 January 2022
What a brilliant day we had in Hoxton on Saturday 22 January for the Rhythmic Excellence friendly tournament.
It was a challenging day for everyone with girls performing their routines to be judged under the new code for the first time, judges judging for the first time with the new code, and the first in person competition we’d done in 2 years! We had some excellent results:
Amelie 3rd in under 12 hoop , 2nd in under 12 ribbon and 1st overall in the under 12 category.
Naama 1st in under 12 hoop
Anaya 9th in senior ball and 9th in senior clubs, competing against girls from the national team.
Well done to all of our girls and massive thanks to our coaches on the day Evina, Franziska and Ama.
Thanks also to our judge Melissa and guest judge Lisa.
