Gymnastics academy confirms move date

A gymnastics academy will be moving into its new home this spring. 

Majestics will be moving from its current premises because of redevelopment but will be rehomed on the site of the former Grange school in Warmley as part of a £10 million regeneration.

The club will be closing its doors on Sunday, April 16 and the moving will start on the next day, Monday 17 and will continue throughout the last two weeks of April. Classes will resume on May 2.

Majestics directors Michelle George and Candice Littleton revealed that this is a “very exciting opportunity” for the club and all their gymnasts. 

The new venue will have more of a hub feel with coaches training to be more inclusive and be able to offer a variety of sessions from baby yoga to freestyle gymnastics.

The building has a new roof, heating systems and podium which will include pits. This setup will allow its programme to expand and offer more progression opportunities for the club’s recreational gymnasts through to their national gymnasts. 

Michelle said: “We are excited to be building relationships with schools on the site to offer a wider curriculum based programme and fully inclusive sessions. 

“The coaches have all been working on their own CPD interests and passions and are hoping to gain a head start of being able to implement some exciting new courses.

“We are so thankful to the council and public for the support we have received in providing a forever home.”
