Blog Entry

It was the final competition before a long summer break. Being on a bank holiday weekend, it was a smaller competition, so only 3 panels were required. Nonetheless, as a club, we still bought a good amount of people like we always do for competitions.

3 of our gymnasts qualified up to the next grade this time round. The first person to qualify was also our first gymnast to compete, Vicky Wright, who qualified from grade G to Grade F with a score of 46.2. She finished 6th in a hard group where over half the competitors qualified. A remarkable effort, deserving the result she got.

The second of our gymnasts to qualify came halfway through the day, with Georgia Ouldridge. She performed outstandingly, not only qualifying comfortably but also finishing first place in a group of eleven with a score of 49.7. She now moves from grade F to grade E.

Our third and final qualifier was also our last competitor of the day, Taylor Fee. Taylor was competing to qualify to national level competition, NAT C. Taylor performed two solid difficult routines, a set and a voluntary. His set routine scored 22.6, and his voluntary, with a tariff of 6.1, scored 28.6, giving him an overall score of 51.2 to qualify.
Taylor then had to compete in a zero final, which he performed another voluntary routine. Although Taylor finished second in his group, his qualification is something to be proud of.

Another noteworthy occasion for the club is our first competitor in the disabilities category, Peter Harper. He was in a group of three, and finished second. Along with an excellent effort, he also enjoyed himself and is willing to do it again. He also did a very good routine, which shows he is ready for competitions in the future.

In Grade G, we had 2 other gymnasts also competing, Jamie Martin, who was competing in his first competition for us after only a short time at the club, and Anna Jones. Both performed 2 good routines. Jamie finished 3rd in his group, and is hoping to improve with more time at the club, while Anna finished 16th in a large and tough group of 25, where 10 people qualified. Both were happy with their performances.

In Grade F, 2 more gymnasts competed, Leigh Stone and Amy Hutchins, who finished 5th and 6th respectively. Both girls were in the same age group, so in effect they were competing against each other. They were close, with only 0.1 between them. It was Amy’s last competition for the club, as she goes off to university after the summer, so as a club, we wish her all the best in the future, and hope she continues trampolining elsewhere.

4 gymnasts competed in Grade E, all in different age categories. Gemma Bennett, Sophie Smith, Jenny Marsden and Harry Loveless all had solid performances. Gemma only just missed out on qualification, finishing a good 5th. Come the next competition, Gemma will have improved, and will be looking to qualify if she wants to.
Sophie was also very close to qualifying, and had a stunning set routine. She also finished 5th in her group, which was the same size as Gemma’s. Both deserve praise for their efforts, and will be looking to improve.
Jenny finished first in her group, which she, and the rest of the club, is very proud about. Showing she had good form was key to the win as she had the lowest tariff for her voluntary, which made the win even more remarkable.
Harry also finished first in his group, and was close to qualifying. It’s the best he has done at a competition of this level, and looks to improve and qualify soon.

4 gymnasts also competed DMT this time round. Kyle Bird, Gemma Bennett, Harry Loveless and Jamie Martin all competed at grade E and did remarkably well. Kyle finished second in his group, Gemma also finished second, while Harry and Jamie finished first. All are looking forward to competing at the next level.

A good day for the club as a whole, and as a club, we are proud of everyone that competed. It was a competition where we were short on officials and coaches as lots of our coaches or officials were busy. Nonetheless, a good day, some good results, and we will go into summer and train ready for our next competition.
