Welcome to UWE Gymnastics club!
Who are we?!
We're a fairly 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!).
We have a wide range of skills, from those who have just taken up Gymnastics for the first time this year to members who competed at BUCS this year achieving up to 8th 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.
48a bus from Frenchay bus stop C at 13:15 or 13:25 at Glenside stop Quarry Way.
We also run a Flexibilty/Strength & Conditioning/Basic Skills session every week.
- Mondays 12:00 - 14:00 Aimed at developing strength and flexibility used in Gymnastics, as well as helping drill basic skills. 12-13 Flex & Strength 13-14 Foundation Skills
You may be wondering what you get for your membership fees?

Your committee for 2018/19
We have competed at BUCS the last 2 years and we did fantastically achieving ranks of 13th and 17th place the first year, and one competitor getting ranked 8th the second year! BUCS is held sometime in February.
Varsity is a huge competition between UWE & Uni of Bristol where we compete in all kind of sports!
We ran our first Varsity Gymnastics competition between ourselves and Uni of Bristol this year! Which we managed to scrape a win by 1 point! Varsity usually runs in March. More details will be made available as we recieve them!
We compete at the annual Bath University ran competition aimed at beginners in December. Last year we managed to clean up with our girls taking home almost all of the golds in both novice and intermediate catagories!
The Bath Comp is the perfect competition for those new to Gymnastics!
We are going to hopefully attend other competitions this year, such as the Birmingham Open.
