HOME OF COMMONWEALTH GAMES CHAMPION

At the Commonwealth Games 2022, Marfa triumphed to win an historic GOLD Medal in the Rhythmic Gymnastics All-Around event. Representing England, she won the country's FIRST EVER Gold Medal in the sport!

Rhythmic Gymnastics is an Olympic sport which combines a unique mixture of elements from classical ballet, modern dance and acrobatics. These aspects are brought together into routines which are performed while the gymnast is skillfully handling one of the five rhythmic apparatus - rope, hoop, ball, clubs or ribbon.
The sport will help to develop flexibility, strength and posture, enhance co-ordination and agility, develop creativity and build self-confidence. Rhythmic Gymnastics is the perfect sport to teach body awareness and control - skills that will assist in the development of athletic potential for any sporting endeavour.

Beginner and Pre-Squad level is where most gymnasts will gain their first experience of the sport. This gymnastics programme is designed to engage children in gymnastics in a fun and friendly way. The aim is to develop your child’s physical literacy skills through gymnastics. This means that we will develop their strength, flexibility, coordination, fitness and confidence. Whether children continue with gymnastics or wish to specialise in another sport, their experience at WLG will provide them with an excellent basis for progression.
If you wish to sign your child up to one of our classes, please contact us to arrange a trial lesson.

Our Club Squad and Elite Squad programme is for children who show certain attributes required for rhythmic gymnastics, including: flexibility/strength, coordination, body type/shape, confidence and attitude. After being selected your child will be encouraged to challenge themselves and work on perfecting skills rather than simply achieving them. Physical preparation is a focus in every session and your child will be continually monitored to see how they adapt to the change in training.
