"Thank you for organising such a wonderful gym club."
Gymnastics at Eastbourne
CACL Gymnastics Club are Sussex Champions!
On Sat 2nd July, at K2 Leisure centre in Crawley, CACL acrobats competed for the coveted position of Sussex Champions.
The Sussex Championship title was won by Brett Tatham-Wood and Chloe Cox in the Grade 6 mixed pairs section. At this level the gymnasts have to perform 2 routines; one being about how well they can balance with each other and the other about performing flighted elements by throwing the top of the trio into the air.
In the lower level, they have combined routines using both balance and flighted elements. The title of Sussex Champion was won by Jessica Blake and Sofia Romnaki in the Grade 3 women’s pairs. We were runners up in the Grade 2 women’s pairs section with Lizzie Pemberton and Isla Budd. In the women’s groups, we were runners up in both the Grade 3, with Cecilie Farrant, Keely Webb-Bowen and Emily Veitch, and the Grade 2 section with Ellen Bregazzi, Aliesha Pooley and Maisie-Jayne Tarrant.
It was an excellent competition enjoyed by all. The event, held over the whole weekend, which includes many different disciplines of gymnastics was well organised and supported by the Sussex Gymnastics Association who are all volunteers.
Thanks to all coaches who worked hard to get the gymnasts ready – Lucy Kingsland and Dawn Cook.
"Thank you so much for arranging the coaches to come to Euan’s fifth birthday party. He had a wonderful time and so did all the other children. The medals went down a treat and I hear of some little boys who went to sleep still with them on - they were so proud! The coaches were fantastic and were absolutely brilliant with the children. I couldn’t have tackled 30 odd marauding children in such a calm and professional way."
