In the Beginning ..........
Originally set up in July 2009 at Padgate Community Centre, The Wire Gymnastics Club grew so that
we became unable to offer the amount of training we would have liked.
Moving Home .........
We moved to The Birchwood High School in January 2010 and had the great honour to have the gym officially opened by Beth Tweddle MBE. This was a fantastic opportunity for all club members to meet Beth and to ask her questions about her gymnastic life and to receive wonderful training tips from one
of the best in the world.
Top Marks -
The club was awarded GymMark and ClubMark accreditation by British Gymnastics, the sports governing body, in March 2011. The GymMark Scheme has been developed by British Gymnastics (BG), in partnership
with Sport England and the Home Country Sports Councils. Its purpose is to provide recognition for
clubs that are committed to providing quality experiences, encouraging young people to take up sport, whilst focusing on improving their talent and maintaining a life long participation in sport. GymMark has helped clubs to grow and develop, improving membership numbers and levels of performance.
