Summer Sizzler Gymnastics Festival - the Hottest Weekend!

Alton Gymnasts came out in force to show their skills were just as hot as the weather this weekend at the annual Summer Sizzler Gymnastics Festival!

Over two days, their was a Gymnastics Display and Club Championships, see one 160 gymnasts performing in one or both events.

The Display was performed on Saturday to an audience which had the hall bursting at the seams!  Performances from gymnasts as young s 4 years old entertained and the crowds.  Right across the board, the standard of performance was very high, resulting in a lot of smiles and very proud coaches and parents!

The Championships was split in to categories from Stage 2a through to pre-competitive Mini-Squads (those who are soon to be working towards County and Regional competition).  Again the standard was high and results very close, leaving us with quite a few joint medalists and some really happy gymnasts!

We were honoured to welcome Alton Town Councillor Alan Murphy to the visit our club this weekend. Councillor Murphy attended both the Display and the Club Championships and also kindly agreed to present the Medals at the event.
