We hope to enter more competitions in the 2018 / 2019 season.

On Sunday 19th May the club took part in the Surrey Floor & Vault Teams competition at the Guildford Spectrum. This competition invited team entries at all levels from Novice to Gold, with teams consisting of 4 gymnasts. We entered 3 teams at Novice level, 3 teams at Intermediate level, 1 Advanced team and 1 gymnast, Yasmin, at Bronze level.

We are absolutely delighted with the results. Our Novice teams performed well and one came first out of all U10 age groups, with Tilly and Caris achieving highest scores in that round. In the Intermediates round all 3 of our teams came away with medals. For both Novice and Intermediates this is especially pleasing as in a typical teams competition, the best 3 of the 4 scores count. In our case, our medal winning teams only had 3 in each team, so a single low score would have pulled them down. But they performed really well and did us proud. Our Advanced team again had 3 members and to make matters worse, on the day one of them was injured during warm up, which left just two so unable to compete as a team. Fortunately, at Advanced level gymnasts are also placed individually and here were are delighted that Imogen won Gold in her age group and Scarlett won a Bronze medal. Our Bronze level gymnast, Yasmin, took Silver medal with a routine that received very positive comments form the judges.

A really good day for us and well done to all who took part!

 

We have taken part in two competitions this year:

 

INTER-CLUB FRIENDLY - GENESIS V DANASTICS, 17 March 2019

This was the first time we have organised a competition at Chessington Sports Centre. The competition was a Trampette and Tumble event, and was an ideal opportunity for our younger gymnasts to show their abilities, especially those who had not competed before. 30 of our children took part and it was great to see especially the first timers do so well. Many came away with medals. Judging by the feedback received, it was a very enjoyable day and we were delighted with their performances. Well done all!

 

Novice level

Guildford Spectrum, Sunday 3rd December 2017

13 of our gymnasts entered this competition and we had another good day. 3 were placed in the top 6 in their ages and others were not far behind. Mia Dove won a Bronze medal. Well done to all.

Intermediate and Advanced levels

Guildford Spectrum, Sunday 1st October 2017

14 Genesis gymnasts took part in this higher levels Regional event, where we were up against gymnasts training up to 5 hours a week. We had a really successful day - 3 of our gymnasts were placed in the top 6 in their respective age groups in the Intermediate section, and Carrie Bexley who was placed 8th in the Advanced event. We are really pleased. Well done Carrie and all our other gymnasts - a very good day.

In September 2017 the club was presented with the Regional best club award in the medium size club category. Clubs in contention were from Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

We are very proud of this achievement as we were up against some stiff opposition. This caps a strong year for the club during which we reached capacity with our membership, entered a number of competitions and re-organised classes to make best use of our coaches.
