It's never too late.....
Adult Competition at The Vault
Sunday 3rd July 2022
Carterton Gymnastic Club will be holding it's first adult gymnastics competition at The Vault on Sunday 3rd July, for gymnasts from clubs in the region.
The competition is open to anyone aged 16 or over, regardless of age or ability. There are categories for men's and women's introductory, novice, intermediate & advanced in all age groups as well as men's and women's disability categories.
Whether you have been a gymnast all your life or are completely new to the sport, this competition will provide a fun and friendly opportunity to showcase your progress and skills.
Many people assume that gymnastics is only for children or adults who have previously done gymnastics. Well, we want to reassure you that it is never too late to take up this amazing sport. We offer classes for men and women over the age of 16. Our oldest gymnast so far is over 80 years old, only took it up when she was 72, and has competed in national gymnastic competitions.
In these classes you will build up your strength, stamina and flexibility and progress at your own pace to master moves. You will have access to the full range of both male and female apparatus, and our supportive staff will ensure you progress and can challenge yourself in a safe, none judgemental environment. If you progress particularly well, you may even be invited to compete at local or regional competitions.
Oh and in case you were worried - you don't even have to wear a leotard. Leggings/close fitting shorts and a t-shirt are just fine!
