AXMINSTER GYMNASTICS CLUB
We are really pleased that Axminster Gymnastics Club will be joining the Axe Vale Show this year. They will entertain us with displays on Saturday 23rd June. The Club was founded in 2017 by head coach, Emma Prior, who moved to Axminster in 2014 after leaving a career within the Royal Marines.
On arrival, Emma found there was little local provision for her passion for artistic gymnastics and tumbling so she decided to set up a club.
Axminster Gymnastics began from the back of a van, running classes in small local halls. By summer 2017 the club had moved to the local leisure centre, enabling storage of larger equipment and allowing expansion of the club which now runs 5 days per week.
The Club provides gymnastic classes for all ages. Currently on offer are classes for children ages 3-17 years in pre-school gymnastics, recreational gymnastics and teen gymnastics.
