Fantastic Turnout at Gymnastics Showcase

On Saturday 19th March, enjoyleisure’s Musselburgh Sports Centre hosted over 400 gymnasts in an exciting and entertaining display as part of Musselburgh’s Riding of the Marches 2016 Sporting Programme.

Girls and boys aged from aged 3 to 20+ entertained the crowds with a dazzling display of choreography, synchronised balances and acrobatics on both the floor and trampolines. The event kick started with a display from resident Two Foot Higher Trampoline Club, who wowed the audience with their high flying acrobatics display.

The annual event brings together gymnastics from across the county to display their skills and talents learned during their weekly coached sessions in both recreational classes run by enjoyleisure, Active Schools and the numerous local Clubs operating within the county.

Event organiser, enjoyleisure’s Gymnastics Development Coordinator Tracey Brown, commented, “We were delighted to welcome several newcomers to the event this year; Dunbar Active Schools Trampolining Classes and the Saltire Team Gymnastics Development Classes from Dunbar and West Barns; which highlights the amazing growth of the sport in the area. Family and friends in the large audience were rightfully proud, as the hard work and regular practice shone through.”

The event incorporated a competitive edge too, with prizes up for grabs in four categories. Following a difficult decision, the judging panel awarded the following prizes:

  • Best Choreography: Saltire Development Classes, West Barns and Dunbar
  • Best Costumes: Meadowbank Sprites
  • Most Energetic Routine: Two Foot Higher Trampoline Club
  • Best Use of Apparatus: Musselburgh Sports Centre Gymnastics

This year’s Showcase was one of the many events running in Musselburgh in the lead up to the 2016 Riding of the Marches Festival. Chair of the Sports Colin Taylor, commented, “It was an absolutely fantastic day; one which we were delighted to support as part of the Riding of the Marches sporting programme. There was an abundance of talent on show, and it was clear to see the participant’s enthusiasm and enjoyment of their sport. A massive “well done” to all of the gymnasts and their coaches for all their hard work; and to those who organised this event - it was a huge success.”
