Congratulations to Cherry Tolcher on being awarded the “Mick Lacey Award”. This award is in memory of Mick Lacey, one of our volunteer parents. The award recognises outstanding contributions to the club. The award was presented to Cherry during the Display by a close friend and colleague of Mick’s from Trinity Hospice.
Hannah visited the Club on Friday 30 September and spent over 3 hours working with a number of enthusiastic gymnasts from our Rec 1, 2 and 3 classes. With the “Country and Western” theme of our upcoming display in mind, the gymnasts were particularly excited to learn a few “tricks” with the rope from Hannah! She also wowed gymnasts and parents alike with a beautiful and expressive combined freehand and ball routine, showcasing her incredible flexibility and dance skills as well as her command of the apparatus. A great time was had by all and we look forward to Hannah’s next visit and continue to support her in her journey and dream of reaching the Olympics in 2020.
Another great day for Alfie and Freddy Tolcher at the GfA Floor and Vault competition on Saturday 25 June 2016.
Alfie was 1st on Floor and 2nd on Vault making him Overall London Region Winner (Gold)
Freddy was 2nd on Floor and 4th on Vault making him Silver medalist.
A great performance from both boys – well done!
Tooting Gym Club says “Goodbye and Good Luck” to Coach Maddy. Maddy has been with the club for 16 years. She joined at the age of three in our Tots programme and progressed through to what used to be called the Intermediates class. She left for a short while but soon returned as a volunteer coach. She passed her British Gymnastics qualifications and has been coaching with us for the last 3 years. Maddy is leaving to go to University but first she is going to do a bit of travelling! We wish her all the very best for the future and hope she returns to coaching one day!
Evelyn leaves Tooting Gymnastics Club after 10 years! The coaches and gymnasts said “goodbye” to Evelyn after 3 years of coaching and 7 years of training as a gymnast.
Evelyn has decided to go travelling for a few months before she starts University in Leeds. We wish her all the best and hope she returns to the club after University.
The Floor and Vault competition is on Monday 6 July and Friday 10 July. Competition routines are now available for download. Please go to the “Members” tab and then “Events and Letters”. More information will be given out over the next few weeks.
