Happy Hilary!


After wishing you all a merry Michaelmas, it’s time to welcome everyone back for a happy Hilary term –  hope you’ve had a great break and made lots of new year’s resolutions (maybe even including flipping around)! We’re always welcoming new members, regardless of your ability or experience, so feel free to pop along to any session and fill in the membership form if you’d like to join us after your first two free sessions. There’s lots for everyone this term so do check out our website and social media pages for updates.

Firstly, here’s the latest Termcard which has all the details of training sessions, bus timetable, and competition dates. As you can see, the Loughborough Open is held on the 15th February: this is a really friendly competition held in a beautiful gym (trust me, it’s green, it’s really bouncy and makes you feel great) so even if you’ve never competed before, it’s an ideal place to start – and there are four difficulty levels to pick from. For now, here’s the short Info Pack and full details about transport etc. will be available soon.

Also, the hype begins for BUCS, held over the weekend of 25th-26th February (6th/7th week), and Varsity on March 5th– the highlight of Hilary! Those in contention for Varsity team selection have already been notified but there’s still so much to get involved with and excited for: our girls and guys are going to need lots of support and it promises to be a really fun day out in Cambridge watching some excellent gymnastics. Again, lots of info to come over the next few weeks, including the return of our cool #darkblue T-shirts 😉

Finally, just a reminder that our popular Conditioning session has changed TIME and VENUE! It’s now Tuesday evening, 8-9pm, for some post-dinner calorie burning and strength building. Meet on Logic Lane, just off the High Street and we will walk down together.

Before that, though, we’ve got our first training session this Saturday of 0th week (14th Jan) – back at Abingdon from 5.15-7.30, we’ll be meeting to catch the bus at St Aldates at 4.40pm. See you there!
