Winners of the Regional Chairman's Legacy Award
In 2019 Andy, Sandy, Adeline, Steph, Jasper, Nyah & Matt (Adeline's husband) were awarded the South East Region Chairman's Legacy Award, for services to the Region in running the regular Floor & Vault competitions. These started in the year 2000 and have grown steadily in popularity. Over 1000 gymnasts a year now enter these competitions. It is rare for 3 generations of a family to be involved in running such events and the award recognises this.
Winners of the Regional Club of the Year Award
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.
To quote the criteria for this award, it is "awarded in recognising the contribution the club has made in the development of gymnastics, reflecting it's contribution to the community as well as promoting the aims of the sport at all levels of participation".
It is all made possible through having a very good coaching team - keen, positive, knowlegable and friendly. The award is really saying well done everyone!

In 2014 Andy, who is a British Gymnastics Coaching Tutor, Assessor and Internal Verifier, was awarded the British Gymnastics National Education Award when this was presented for the first time. Andy has run over 400 courses for coaches and teachers, so helping 4000+ people on their coaching pathway, and is still going strong!
