An Elite Gymnast from Baskervilles School of Gymnastics competed in National Finals over the weekend, placing 30th in the country in her age group. 10-year-old Rosa Pawlyn headed to Stoke-On-Trent on Sunday 8th May, to compete in the Women’s Artistic National Compulsory Level 3 Competition, representing the South West. The competition is the highest level of gymnastics a child of Rosa’s age can compete at.

Gymnasts competed on vault, bars, beam, floor, and in the range competition – a test of strength and flexibility. Rosa came 30th all-around, with an overall score of 57.750. Rosa had a brilliant result on vault, with her Yurchenko vault awarded 12.950, putting Rosa in 5th place. A strong performance on bars landed Rosa 26th place, with a score of 12.450. Rosa was top scorer in the South West team on both vault and bars.

In an impressive personal best, she also doubled the range score she previously achieved at Compulsory Grades in April, scoring 11.200. This is no doubt thanks in part to Baskervilles’ Strength and Conditioning Coach Joe Rymell, who began working at the club in April. As well as working with our Elite Girls, Joe also works as our new Fitness Suite Manager.

Of Rosa’s impressive result, Elite Girls’ Coach Emma Baskerville enthused, ‘Rosa was an absolute dream, I’m so, so proud. Well done Rosa Pawlyn!’

Over 100 gymnasts from Gymnastics Clubs across the South West headed to Baskervilles School of Gymnastics on Saturday 7th May, to take part in their Boys’ Rising Stars Competition.

Baskervilles hosted gymnasts from ten different clubs, including their own, for the annual intermediate, squad-level competition. The club ran two sessions throughout the day each with several competitions running. Gymnasts competed on floor, vault, and trampet, and medals were given to the top three gymnasts on each piece, with the top six gymnasts overall in each category also awarded. Despite stiff competition from other clubs, Baskervilles gymnasts competed well and won 16 medals in total throughout the day.

The competition included a fundraising raffle – all funds raised at the competition will go towards the purchase of new equipment for the gym, and the improvement of Baskervilles’ facilities. Baskervilles put all of their profits back into the business for the benefit of their members – this helps aid gymnasts’ development to achieve their potential at all levels.

Elite Boys Coach Levente Molnar-Schondorfer explained, ‘The competition went well – the boys presented their routines nicely, and, importantly, the gymnasts all enjoyed themselves, with smiles on their faces throughout’.
