This weekend Deeside Gymnastics Academy was host to the Welsh NDP Tumbling Championships. Gymnasts from all over Wales came to compete to qualify for a place in the British semi finals. This year Deeside had over 50 gymnasts entered in the competition across all the categories, from club to national level.
The competition started on Saturday with our club grade tumblers up first. This was most of these gymnasts first tumbling competition with our youngest competitor being just 6 years old. The girls had a great competition and came away with some fab results.
