A change in facilities and a crew of determined helpers can boost membership, as Local Leader Helen Seamer found out at Pegasus Gymnastics Club.
“Gymnastics is enjoying a surge in popularity thanks to the success of Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games and subsequent international competitions.
Gymnastics clubs up and down the country are fully subscribed, many with long waiting lists of children keen to become the next Beth Tweddle or Louis Smith.
Working hard to capitalise on the growth in the sport is Ionut Trandaburu and the team at Pegasus Gymnastics Club in Maidstone. Ionut has a distinguished record as a gymnast and International Performance coach.
His superb technical knowledge has enabled him to build a coaching team that can cater for the full range of gymnastic ability, from babies in the Kindergym, to elite performance level.
The benefits derived from Olympic-level apparatus can be immense.
