I am especially pleased that we are now likely to have 3 teams heading to the British Championships in August, our Women’s Senior team, Junior boys team, & Women’s Youth team. This is a great result for us and we are all excited to see what all of our gymnasts can do in the British”.

The team comprise of 12 girls aged between 9 and 13 years old, coached by Ruth Tonks, herself an ex –gymnast. Ruth said “I can’t wait for my girls to showcase all of their skills in Liverpool at the British. We won’t rest on our laurels. The hard work will continue. We are all determined to put Newcastle TeamGym on the map!”
