The Elite Squad

ONCE our gymnasts experience a taste of competition, and hopefully an insatiable appetite for collecting medals, then there’s only one place for them to go – our illustrious Elite Squad, which has flown the flag vigorously for King Edmund GC around the world over many exciting and incredibly successful years.

This truly is the business end of our five-step plan from Gym Tot to seasoned tumbler, and it’s where world and European gold medal-winning dreams are fulfilled . . . and broken.

There’s no beating about the bush where this lot are concerned. Our elite gymnasts are the most committed bunch in the club, training up to six times a week and working to the very highest levels of acrobatic gymnastics.

Some of these gymnasts are internationally renowned – the world’s BEST – as they compete all over the globe, not only representing King Edmund in friendly competitions, but proudly parading the colours of Great Britain on the big world and European stages.

It can be a thoroughly demanding and bumpy road – and a richly rewarding one too for those who demonstrate the will to win!
