Wicklow town welcomes new gymnastics club
WICKLOW Town now has its own a fully fitted gymnastics and trampoline only club, this is a first for Wicklow town.
The opening day was held on Saturday, November 29 and was a great success with large numbers turning up, most classes are now almost full.
The club has three floors, a 12 meter Ait track, trampette, vault, High Bar, beams and an Olympic standard and size trampoline.
The new club is basically a new branch of the very successful Rathdrum Gymnastics Club.
The coaching team is led by Rathdrum’s head coach Les and senior coach Beckii Connor. Sarah Burke, Alison Fahey, Tara Collins and Sabha Joyce make up the rest of the team. All are top performers and coach/judges.
The club runs one hour classes at 10 am, 11 am, noon and 1pm on Saturdays for 6+ gymnasts (Strictly 6+, proof of age required) and for 3-5-year-olds. 45 minute classes at 10.05am, 11.05am, 12.05pm and 13.05pm (Strictly 3+, proof of age required). These classes cover all the apparatus.
One hour gymnastics only classes (no trampoline) will run on Wednesdays at 5 and 6pm. The trampoline only Wednesday classes are full.
The club are receiving lots of requests for adult classes similar to what runs in Rathdrum and they will be considered in the new year
