Baskervilles Holds Successful Annual Club Competition
Baskervilles’ gymnasts had the opportunity to experience competing last weekend, at our annual Club Competition. Over 350 gymnasts, many of whom were having their first taste of this type of event, competed in 18 different competitions over two days.
Gymnasts performed on two pieces – floor and vault – to an audience of over 200 people and judges from Baskervilles who scored their efforts. The top six performers in each category were welcomed to the stage, with the top three in each competition taking their places on the podium and awarded medals. The overall winner of each competition received a trophy, and awards were also given for the best floor routine and vault in each category. Additionally, each gymnast who took part went home with a participation medal.
A fantastic time was had by gymnasts, parents and coaches alike, and we were delighted to receive great feedback from the event.
“It was a fantastic day, and I was so proud to see my daughter compete”, said Sarah Jones, mother of Emily Jones, “I couldn’t beli
eve it when she won her 6-8 years category!”
“It was so encouraging for the gymnasts, slickly run and so well organised”, added Becky Martin, mother of Laura Martin.
Congratulations to all the gymnasts who took part!
