Gymnastics is a sport for everyone, supporting all styles of gymnastics including: acrobatic, artistic, rhythmic, trampoline and freestyle.

We train at Leeds Gymnastics Club which provides all the necessary equipment as well as experienced and elite coaches. 

Whether you want to walk on the beam or somersault into the pit, gymnastics is the sport to try at Leeds Beckett.

our ethos

something for everyone

Our club is a community of people where you will make friends for life while also increasing your fitness, learning new skills and then be able to show off your cool new moves to all of your friends and family.

Do I need to be a skilled gymnast to join?

No! You don’t have to be flexible or be able to do a forward roll to be part of our club!

So whether you’re a complete beginner or an elite, everyone is welcome to try out new skills and challenge themselves. 

We also run friendly and fun competitions for novice, intermediate and advanced gymnasts.

Our 'Clean Sport' commitment

All sporting participants have the right to compete in drug-free sport (Clean Sport). Leeds Beckett University adopts the UK Anti-Doping and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) position that cheating, including doping, is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, undermining the otherwise positive impact it can have on society.
