THERE was plenty of entertaining expertise and talent on show when the USN Bolton Arena held its very first gymnastics festival.
The event, sponsored and supported by British Gymnastics and Active Dancewear, was part of a whole series of festivals across the country. These are part of the British Gymnastics festival programme and “Gymnastics For All”, designed to encourage all ages to take up and enjoy the sport.
The successful event included the Bolton Arena’s own gymnastics team, plus groups from St Helens, Penketh, Merseyside and GR8 from Leigh. The Arena was also privileged to have the National Disability Display team attending, drawn from all over the country.
The festival provided an afternoon of creative choreography, fantastic costumes and tumbling gymnastics. British Gymnastics and special guest from City of Manchester, John Smethurst, selected the most artistic performance on the day and this went to GR8 for the gymnastics content of their routine, their costumes and a faultless display. All groups were praised for their performance and all went away with medals, certificates and goody bags.
Bolton Arena Gymnastics Club has classes for all ages, from walking to adults, scheduled every day of the week. To find out more contact firstname.lastname@example.org
