The Vault Plays Host To County Grading and Under 8's

It was an honour to host the Oxfordshire County Grades and Under 8's competition at The Vault on Saturday.
We played host to gymnasts from Abingdon, Cherwell, Wantage, Kinetic and Kennylands and the standard of competition was high.
Our girls did us proud, with Anabel competing at Grade 2 and gaining the silver medal overall and achieving a commendation in her grading. Lydia competed at Grade 3, claimed the bronze medal overall and a distinction in her grading. Well done to both of you!
Our smallest squad gymnasts, the Pod Squad, aged just 5 and 6, took part in their first county event in the Under 8's. They all did wonderfully well. Ivy's best piece was the bars, and Lila, Charlotte and Flora's best piece was the floor. Well done girls, we hope you enjoyed your day!
