Chelmsford 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 over 30 years ago and was based at Dovedale Sports Centre, Vicarage Road, Chelmsford. Julie Belemore, became Head Coach of 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 dedicated facility which opened in April 2012.
We have had funding from Sport England for our sprung floor, rings, parallel bars and pommel horse. Our asymmetric bars were funded by Jack Petchy. The Big Lottery gave funding for our trampoline.
The club now caters for boys Artistic as well girls, which has flourished over the years with competitive squad groups now in place for our boys.
