Who are we?!

We're a new club which only started in 2016, but we started strong! We train mostly in Artistic Gymnastics, but we welcome people of every discipline (We even have a handful of free-runners!).

SKILL LEVEL

We have a wide range of skills, from those who have just taken up Gymnastics for the first time this year to 2 members who competed at BUCS this year achieving 13th and 17th place in their catagories! We have level 3 coaches, and Gymnastics newbies are encouraged to come and try it out! We will have you somersaulting in no time!!!

When do we train?

Our main training sessions are held at Bristol Hawks, the home of Olympic Gymnast Claudia Fragapane(photo above). Both sessions are ran by Level 3 coaches and allow full use of all Gym equipment. People often meet up at the Frenchay bus stops and catch the 48a bus together there. http://bristolhawksgymnastics.org/

              48a bus from Frenchay bus stop C at 13:00 or 13:10 at Glenside stop Quarry Way.
