Welcome Back

We are happy to announce that we will be re-opening our doors to all of our under 18 recreational gymnasts w/c 12th April providing the government road map falls into place with our current Covid-19 measures in place. 

As our gym-tots sessions are not coach led, we are unable to offer these until w/c 17th May along with our adult classes.

We still have space in some of our pre-school classes so if you would like a place for your pre-schooler, please get in touch.

** COVID-19 UPDATE **

Updated 1st November 2020

 
Following the government announcement last night, we are waiting for British Gymnastics to confirm how the new rules and regulations will affect us.
 
All classes will run as normal until Thursday including our gym-tots session on Tuesday and we will update you when we hear more from British Gymnastics.
 
Once again, we would like to thank all our members for your continued support.

Update from British Gymnastics

All clubs have recently received an email from British Gymnastics regarding insurance cover and we have a duty of care to our members to pass on any updated information as soon as we receive it.

We need to make sure that all members and coaches are protected in regards to insurance for home activity during our gym closure due to COVID-19.

Cardio, strength, flexibility and fitness are all covered by your British Gymnastics insurance policy but anything else will not be, e.g. walkovers, flics, cartwheels, handstands etc. 

We are aware that some gymnasts may have more complex moves within their home programme given to them by their coach, however if you choose to allow your child to do these skills, this will be at your own risk and neither UGC or British Gymnastics can be held responsible for any accidents.

Safety is paramount in our sport and we need to keep our gymnasts safe throughout this difficult period.

Daily Videos & Challenges

During our temporary closure, we will be posting daily videos and challenges so please like us on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Covid-19 Update

Following the government's decision to close all schools at the end of the week, we have had to make the very difficult decision to close after classes and training sessions on Saturday 21st March until further notice.  It has become increasingly difficult over the past few days to ensure our members and staff remain safe.

As our club is a not for profit organisation and our only source of funding is through member's fees, we are asking you to please continue to enrol for the summer term, as so many of you have already done and we thank you for this.  If it becomes impossible to re-open after Easter we will hold your enrolment over to the autumn term.  

Easter holiday taster sessions and parties already booked until the end of April will be refunded as soon as possible.

We value each and every one of our members and thank you for your support in these difficult times ahead, we will endeavour to re-open when we feel it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, stay safe and maintain your fitness ready for your return.

** UPDATE **

Updated 20th March 2020

Further to the latest government measures, we will now be closing the gym after training today, Friday 20th March until further notice.

As soon as we know when we can re-open, we will contact you at the earliest possible opportunity; we would like to thank all our members for your continued support in these difficult times.

Stay safe and keep fit ready for your return.
