Eryri Gymnastics Club recently came second in the regional North Wales Preliminary Gymnastics Championships held in Llandrillo College.
The Eryri Gymnastics Club competed in The Welsh Gymnastics run competition against over 200 gymnasts, and was the third smallest squad with only 19 gymnasts. Over the course of the competition the gymnasts were awarded with 47 medals, trophies and ribbons.
During the competition, club members competed in the tumble and vaulting competitions for the first time.
As the club does not currently own the required apparatus needed to practice for these competitions, they are looking to push on with fundraising and various funding applications to purchase a vaulting table to kick on with their progress.
Eryri Gymnastics Club was formed in 1990 as a natural progression from the classes held at the Arfon Leisure Centre, and has since set up as a private club in the Plas Silyn Leisure Centre, Penygroes. The clubs’ head coach David Morris works as the North Leisure Centres Gymnastics Development Officer for Gwynedd Council. He runs classes at Plas Ffrancon Leisure Centre in Bethesda, Arfon Leisure Centre in Caernarfon, Plas Silyn Leisure Centre in Penygroes and Glaslyn Leisure Centre in Porthmadog.
Through continual assessment and monitoring in the classes by the qualified coaches held in Gwynedd Council Leisure Centres; identified gymnasts are then invited to train with Eryri Gymnastics club every Sunday at Plas Silyn Leisure Centre Penygroes.
