Holborn Gymnastics Club enters Stronger Communities Through Sports campaign

Holborn Gymnastics Club enters Stronger Communities Through Sports campaign

Just before the break up of term our Holborn Gymnastics Club entered the @ConnectSport Stronger Communities through Sport campaign, part of  the Mayor of London’s Office Sport Unites strategy.  The campaign “aims to showcase how sport and physical activity are being used in London for the benefit of society”. 

The script was put together and narrated by head coach Jess Capelli.  We popped into a gymnastics session taking place on the top floor of Holborn Library to film some of the club in action.  

Check out the results below!  

“Holborn Gymnastics Club is a community club – we deliver 15 sessions every week to approximately 150 children from ages 4 – 16 years old in the local community.   

Our goal is to build stronger communities through sport.  We teach classes for all levels from beginning to recreational to squad level.  We train at Bedford House Community Centre in Holborn running 15 weekly sessions – 5 days a week including Saturdays. Due to the site being redevelopment we have relocated for one year to the top floor of Holborn Library. We also deliver in 3 primary schools and 1 secondary school, building links for children to give gymnastics a go in their own environment. You can check us out performing in local community events and festive displays throughout the year too!  

Our sessions are structured to include a pulse raising warm-up, mobility, body preparation and then apparatus based work. Every child is encouraged to challenge themselves both physically and mentally and are involved in the development of their skills.”
