Gymnasts launch appeal
MEMBERS of a Tayside gymnastics club are bending over backwards to raise £30,000 for a purpose-built centre.
Phoenix Gymnastics Club, which trains at various venues, has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £3,500 to kickstart its ambitious project.
The club’s members hope to turn the disused tennis courts at the former Lochside Leisure Centre in Forfar into the first purpose-built gymnastics centre in Angus.
A crowdfunding page stated:“Over the years our gymnasts have achieved top rankings at competitions and gained entry to various different squad structures. We are open to all and provide opportunities for the complete beginner right through to the competitive-level gymnasts celebrating all successes, big or small.
“To be able to have a purpose-built facility in our home town would have such a positive impact on the development of all our gymnasts.”
