Team Gym

Our victorious 2007 Senior Team

Team gym is a relatively new discipline within British Gymnastic. It is a discipline which uses three apparatus – floor, trampette, and tumble. Each team can have between 6 and 12 members and all members must compete on the floor and 6 members must perform in each “run” of the tumble and trampette. There are three different runs on each of these apparatus. Teams can be made up of just women, just men, or mixed.

At Tolworth Gym Club we believe this is a very important discipline to have. Our teams still get the enjoyment of competing at high levels but with slightly less timed pressure, and the extra support of being within a large team of friends.

Tolworth Gym Club have had a women’s team since 2002. We started with a junior team (aged 12-16), who won county and regional competitions for two years. Then in 2004 we qualified for our first British final, in which we came 5th. The following year we introduced a primary (aged 8-12) team to this development. This team is known as our “development squad”. In 2007, the original junior girls had grown up into our senior team (16+).

We have coaches qualified within this discipline as well as their artistic qualifications, and we now also have two qualified judges. We are working hard to keep this department growing, and hope to be able to offer this area of gymnastics to men also, by introducing a mixed or men’s team.

In April 2007 our senior team won the British Championships held in Gloucester and went on to the Euros in Ghent where they finished in 9th place, just narrowly missings the finals.
