We have a satellite venue for Gymnastics in Wellington.
We run weekly training sessions and also Sports Performance Workshops in Holidays. We offer group and individual training, from beginners to International competitors.
Our mission is to support the long term athletic development of all our members. This then allows them to participate safely and effectively in the sport or activity they choose and to enjoy a life of quality movement.
We are affiliated to British Athletics,British Weightlifting and British Gymnastics and currently have 112 members.
David Belle, the founder of parkour said: “The principle of Parkour is to know what you are capable of, to gain self-confidence and not to compete with others.”
Whilst some of our athletes do wish to compete, our underpinning philosophy is on individual development.
