The University of Southampton Gymnastics Club is for students looking to improve their strength, flexibility and gymnastic technique.
Whether you are a complete novice, or a seasoned gymnast, we warmly welcome everybody looking to build and develop new skills. We currently train once a week in an Olympic-standard gymnasium and have a weekly Strength, Conditioning and Basics session.
We compete in both friendly competitions, such as Portsmouth Gymnastics Adult Competition, and more serious competitions, such as Varsity and BUCS.
Our aim is to develop skills and technique in order to keep increasing our ongoing success in competitions. Our instagram account is @uosgymnasticsclub.
About GymnasticsWe train at Dynamo gymnastics club on Thursdays, from 8:30pm-10pm. There is a place for everyone, whether you have just started gymnastics at university, or have been doing gymnastics all your life.
The club has all the equipment you will ever need, such as a tumble track, vault, trampoline, floor area, bars, rings, pommel horse, beam, and more! There is also a large foam pit area to practice skills into, with many of the apparatus leading into the foam pit. There are also highly qualified, very friendly coaches that you can turn to for advice or help with learning skills, as well as members of our committee who are always eager to help.
