Planet Gymnastics Community Centre is a Community Interest Company. It is not for profit and all surplus funds go back into the running of the facility. The centre is assisted by a committee of parent fundraisers who hold events through the year to raise additional funds for running costs and equipment.
Planet Gymnastics Community Centre provides various activities for all ages, from babies to adults. Planet Gymnastics community centre offers Gymnastics, Dance, CIW after school and holiday care, Parent and toddler groups, Community hire for meetings, Sports and community groups, A community Café, Birthday Parties, Freestyle Gymnastics/Parkour and much more.
A community-run centre, Planet Gymnastics puts its emphasis on participation for all and excellent service and tuition for all the family. New members attend the General Gymnastics/Pre-school classes which are held at convenient times from Monday to Saturday.
From these classes, our qualified coaches, who have experience in talent identification, can select those children who have a particular aptitude for flexibility and strength to transfer to our development squads. However, all children are encouraged to progress through the system to the improver levels at their own rate and work through the British Gymnastics awards scheme. Development squads prepare the children for later transfer into the many disciplines of gymnastics such as Girls and Boys Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Tumbling, Acro and Team Gym. From there, children can progress into our Planet Academy advanced competitive section.
At Planet Gymnastics we acknowledge the benefits of sport and exercise for all. Participation in our programme allows children to learn concentration, hard work, sportsmanship and teamwork and develops self-esteem, self-confidence and a self belief. Children have the opportunity to expand their social network whilst keeping active and fit.
