The gymnastics club is a limited company with charitable status.  Surplus funds are used to pay for coaching courses, exams, entry fees to competitions and of course equipment.

The club started about 30 years ago and was based at Dovedale Sports Centre, Vicarage Road, Chelmsford. Julie Belemore, the current Head Coach, took over the club in 1992. When Julie took over the club had 20 girls, training on two badminton courts on a Saturday. We now have over 1,000 gymnasts training throughout the week at our purpose built centre which opened in April 2012. 

We have had funding from Sport England in 2012 for our sprung floor.  The Big Lottery gave funding for our trampoline in 2013 and Sport England again funded our boys' equipment of rings, parallel bars and pommel horse in 2016. 

We currently have 3 Essex champions: 2 silver medalists and a regional finalist and the British 2011 Veterans Champion. Four female gymnasts have gained places in the Essex County Squad. We have a thriving boy's squad group that has competed in county and regional competitions.
