We do not operate a waiting list for GfA, Pre-School or Tumble Tots classes. Once you have completed a registration form you will be notified of any classes that have availability. If all classes are full we continue to notify registered gymnasts each time spaces come up. Spaces are then filled on a first come first serve basis.
For drop in sessions such as Adults, Tiny Gym and Holiday Club our booking system does operate a waiting list if a session is full. An automated system then emails people in order on the waiting list. This applies only to sessions listed on www.bookwhen.com/southwarkgym.

Leotards are optional. Gymnasts do not wear socks or trainers, all activities are performed in bare feet. All jewellery including earrings and watches must be removed.
