Christmas Club Championships December 2013



A great day was had by all on the 8th December at our first Club Championships.   The day started with a very exciting competition by the Freestyle section with a display from the Freestyle coaches Liam O’Brien, James Valentine and Zac Middleton fresh back from the World Tumbling Championships in Bulgaria.

The Pre School section really stole the show alongside our younger Rec section.  These are our future and it was great seeing them having so much fun at the competition.   Running alongside the recreational was our Tumbling section which again provided some high level entertainment with the higher runs having to start their runs from outside.

Next was the older Rec section and Advanced Rec from Wednesdays showing the next progression up.  Plus running alongside were the Squad children competing on all four pieces, Floor, Vault, A Bars or H Bar, P Bars or Beam.   At the competition we also celebrated 7 of our high level Squad girls selection to represent UKG at the USAIGC World Championships in Orlando next year.   However the Vintage Tumbling Crew really brought the house down with their display to finish the competition – showing that gymnastics is definitely for all here at Booker.   It is support from mum’s like these that helps to make Booker the club it is today.

We would like to thank all our members who supported us on this day.   We raised an amazing £2248.00 to go towards our new airfloor and other new equipment.  All podium shots from the day are available to view in the gallery.
