Aero Ki­net­ics pair in Bri­tish booster

TRAM­POLIN­ING: City club achieve fine re­sults at re­gional and na­tional level

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

MEM­BERS of the city’s Aero Ki­net­ics Tram­polin­ing Club have been in ex­cel­lent form of late - es­pe­cially Bri­tish Cham­pi­onships-bound pair Ross Weather­burn and Matthew Glad­ders.

They have qual­i­fied for this year’s Bri­tish Cham­pi­onships at the NIA in Birm­ing­ham on July 24 and 25 - Glad­ders in the Un­der 17 Boys Na­tional C and Weather­burn in the 19+ men Na­tional C class - and they both boosted morale at the Mil­ton Keynes In­vi­ta­tion tour­na­ment.

Com­pet­ing in the Elite sec­tion, the tal­ented two­some bat­tled it out in the Na­tional C group where Weather­burn per­formed a higher tar­iff vol­un­tary but Glad­ders had the edge on his form marks to take first place.

In all the club took a team of 20 tram­polin­ists to the com­pe­ti­tion, rang­ing from new starters and be­gin­ners up to Elite Na­tional level, and it was a very suc­cess­ful day for them with 14 mem­bers re­turn­ing home with tro­phies.

One of the club’s new­est mem­bers, Yas­min Hin­ton, made a su­perb start to her tram­polin­ing ca­reer to fin­ish third in the Un­der 11 Girls be­gin­ners class.

Amelia Mon­aghan also shone on the day with two ex­cel­lent rou­tines to put her six points ahead of her fel­low com­peti­tors in the Un­der 9 Club H group.

Aero Ki­net­ics fin­ished third over­all in the club points shield.

AERO Ki­net­ics also achieved some fine re­sults at the Mid­lands Grad­ing in Not­ting­ham.

As al­ways the stan­dard was high as tram­polin­ists sought to qual­ify for the next grade and the day was a mix­ture of cel­e­bra­tion for those that achieved their aim and dis­ap­point­ment for those that nar­rowly missed out on the es­sen­tial qual­i­fi­ca­tion scores.

In the Club I sec­tion new­comer Matthew Billing­ton had an ex­cep­tional first com­pe­ti­tion to win his group and qual­ify for Club H.

In the Re­gional G sec­tion Bethany Eng- lish, Lau­ren Bell and An­drew Aistrup all achieved the qual­i­fi­ca­tion scores for Re­gional F and An­drew Aistrup also won his group.

At Re­gional F, Jamie Skin­ner just man­aged to qual­ify for re­gional E with a mar­gin of 0.1. He fin­ished third in his group. Lucy Bar­ber had a su­perb com­pe­ti­tion at the top re­gional level D to fin­ish sec­ond and to achieve a pro­mo­tional of­fer for Na­tional level.

THE last Na­tional Gala of the sea­son was held in Liver­pool and Chloe Grieves was com­pet­ing at Na­tional level for the first time. She achieved her aim of com­plet­ing two solid rou­tines to fin­ish in 17th place.

Glad­ders com­peted in the Un­der 19 boys Na­tional C group and fin­ished third and re­ceived an of­fer for the next level FIG B.
