History

Southwark Gymnastics Club has been in operation since September 2010 and was incorporated as a Community Interest Company (CIC) in 2012 by a small group of coaches that had already worked together for a number of years. Initially SGC took over a handful of sessions running at Harris Academy Peckham and Brunswick Park Primary school for about 150 gymnasts. Determined to grow from a small club into a full-time operation serving the local community, the coaches worked hard to improve facilities, develop gymnasts and mentor future coaches. Since 2010 we have:

- Grown to over 800 members
- Increased capacity to work with a further 1,200 participants in schools and drop-in sessions at our venues each week
- Opened training venues at Camberwell Leisure Centre and Charles Dickens Primary School and developed Brunswick Park School into a full-time Gymnastics facility (the only one in Southwark)
- Increased our coaching team to over 30 including a full-time staff of 4
- Trained local youngsters into successful gymnasts at all levels including medal winners at European and World events
- Travelled the UK and Europe with our award winning Display Teams
