Congratulations go out to Ollie following his remarkable British Trampoline Championships results - Ollie has cemented his position as 3rd in the UK in his age category!
Following a tough series of qualification events in Telford and Sheffield, Ollie travelled to Arena Birmingham to compete in the British Championships with the best Trampoline, DMT and Tumbling competitors in the UK, managing a fantastic 3rd place!
But that's not all! Ollie scored a whopping 29.9 out of 30.0 for his 'Horizontal Displacement' score (how well he says on the cross on the Trampoline) - that was the highest in the entire competition, placing higher than even the Senior competitors! A huge achievement for his first ever British Championships!
Well done to Ollie and all of his Coaches who shared in his success!

We have been informed by the Lakeside Centre that they have scheduled refurbishment works to take place in their sports hall from 30th September 2019 until 1st January 2020. This will mean that the sports hall will be out of action and we will not be able to operate classes at this location during this time.
We have worked with the team at the Lakeside Centre and have been able to secure an alternative booking at Hadrian Leisure Centre, St Peter's Road, Wallsend, NE28 7LQ. We will therefore be transferring all Lakeside Centre classes to this location from 30th September 2019 to 1st January 2020. We are currently working with both centres to determine which equipment can be transferred to Hadrian LC, although we are confident we will still be able to offer all 4 gymnastics pieces plus Trampolines each week, albeit it potentially on a smaller scale.
We appreciate that this is an inconvenience to our Members, but unfortunately it is a situation over which we have no control. We are therefore offering the following options to Members:
We thank you for your understanding and support in this matter, and hope that you will continue with our classes at Hadrian LC!
