Leeds Gymnastics Club has been in its current location since June 2012 and before that was based at Carnegie Regional Gymnastics Centre in LMU’s Beckett Park Campus from 1989 to March 2012. Our history stretches back to the 1970s when the club was the L.A.I. or Leeds Athletic Institute based on Jack Lane near Leeds City Centre.
In that time, we nurtured thousands of gymnasts, acrobats and tumblers who’ve gone on to represent the club, the region and their university. They’ve represented England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Wales and Great Britain as well as Italy and Trinidad and Tobago. Our gymnasts have competed at club, regional, national and British Championships. They’ve competed at Internationals, World Student Games, Youth Olympic Festivals, Commonwealth Games, European Championships, World Championships and yes, the Olympics (3 different Olympics in fact). We’ve not just competed at the highest levels, our gymnasts and acrobats have proudly represented Leeds Gymnastics Club and brought back bronze, silver and gold medals from European and World Championships, Commonwealth and Olympic Games.
Our recent past has seen us take our old gym apart mat by mat, bar by bar and build a new one from scratch, with support from British Gymnastics, Sport England and Leeds City Council, combined with phenomenal amounts of blood, sweat and tears from gymnasts, parents and friends of the club, we’ve made it to our brilliant new facility.
And now we’re ready for the next chapter in our story, where we want to take everything we’ve learned over the last 4 or so decades and go on to achieve more and give even more people the chance to experience what we think is the best sport.
