Sports:

The club exists to promote the enjoyment of Womens Artistic Gymnastics in Orpington and surrounding areas, and is run entirely by volunteers.
 
We are the longest established gymnastic club in the London Borough of Bromley, and train at the Walnuts Leisure Centre in Orpington town centre.
 
All of the club's gymnasts are trained in the four Olympic Gymnastic disciplines of Floor, Vault, Asymmetric Bars and Beam. Our gymnasts are grouped according to age and ability, and we presently have members aged from five to eighteen.
 
Our adult coaches are trained to British Gymnastics standards, and have undergone enhanced CRB checks. Our coaches are all volunteers and consequently attend training sessions because they enjoy doing so, not because they are paid to be there.
 
We encourage our older gymnasts to assist the qualified coaches, which maintains a continuity of involvement with the club after they cease to be active gymnasts, and those that show interest are sponsored by the club to attend BG training courses to qualify, initially, as Assistant Coaches. Several of our current coaches are former club gymnasts.
