18th March 2024 - What a fantastic 4 days! Well done to all gymnasts, coaches, volunteer judges and let's never forget the support of those parents!

"This weekend saw the British Championships held at the M&S arena Liverpool. A great success for Huntingdon Gymnastics Club gymnasts. All gymnasts worked extremely hard over the four day competition, and despite some ups and downs the gymnasts performed exceptionally well.

Uzair Chowdhury in the under 16’s took the all-around bronze, with golds on Vault and High bar, silver on rings, and bronze on parallel bars. He competed with teammate Riley Scarfe competing for the first time at the British, worked well on all 6 apparatus to come 20th from 36.

Codi Hurd achieved a bronze medal on high bar in the under 14’s, with teammate George Sabine enjoying the experience and also, his first British championships.

Sol Scott in under 18’s, completed all-around to qualify himself for three apparatus finals, his efforts were rewarded on day two when he became British Champion on Vault (with a huge 14.585 average) and High Bar, narrowly missing another medal on floor.

Finally, in the Seniors competition, Jake Jarman took silver in the all-around, with 84.350, only 0.55 off Joe Fraser’s gold place.

Jake then added British Champion titles on the Floor, Vault and High bar with a silver on pommels, just behind Max Whitlock. Meanwhile, his teammate Ryan Cirino also competed really well with some hugely difficult skills to come 16 from 36.

Lailey McConville and Madison Grundy represented the club admirably for the women, at their first British Championships, with Lailey coming 44th and Madison 14th out of 48 gymnasts.

Huntingdon Gymnastics Club is pleased to report that Jake’s coach Ben Howells, received British gymnastics master coach award and performance of the year coach award. Coaches; Steve Davison and Adam Scott were presented with the award of merit for judging services over many years, and Jake was also presented with the master gymnast award."

Jake does it again!

Great Britain's first World Champion on Vault!
British Gymnastics Website: www.british-gymnastics.org:
"Jake Jarman has become the first British gymnast to be crowned vault world champion after a sensational performance on the final day of the 2023 artistic gymnastics World Championships in Antwerp.
Jake nailed two superb vaults, his first with 3.5 twists and a stuck landing scored 15.4 and his second vault he went for a high 5.6 difficulty routine and again landed securely scoring 14.7 to give him an unbeatable score of 15.050. Aged just 21 Jake adds the vault World title to his Commonwealth and European titles.
An emotional Jake said after: “It doesn’t feel real. To call myself World Champion, I can’t believe it to be honest. I was definitely nervous but as soon as I landed the first vault instantly I calmed down. I’m super proud to be able to perform the way I did today, it gives me a huge confidence boost especially heading into next year. I don’t think this will sink in till I’m home - at the moment its just a blur. To know that I can do that in a high-pressure environment and to really enjoy myself whilst doing it is massive for me.”

Jenny Sharpington:

It’s with great sadness that Huntingdon Gymnastics Club announces the death of Jenny Sharpington. 

Alongside her late husband Terry, they established a gymnastics club in Huntingdon.  From a small afterschool gymnastics club in the mid 1970’s the enthusiasm for gymnastics in the local community of Huntingdon, allowed the club to build its first purpose built facility in 1983 in Clayton’s Way.  The club continued to go from strength to strength with Jenny juggling her full time career and the back ground administration of the club.  Jenny provided the foundations on which the gym was built, in addition to coaching in the gym, Jenny managed the membership and finances of the club, freeing Terry up to fulfill his role as Head coach.

Jenny was a respected coach, judge, mentor and friend to many and will be greatly missed.  Huntingdon Gymnastics Club thoughts and condolences are with Jenny’s family at this sad time.

Tesco Community Grant £10,000 Winners!

A Big thank you to Tesco Community Grants and the Golden Token! We were lucky enough that a shopper found the golden token and decided to donate it to Huntingdon Gymnastics Club! On 11th November 2022 Jake was on hand to accept the cheque on behalf of the club! This has enabled us to fund the vault and the renewal of the pit edge. 

Repairs to our Roof!

You may have noticed that we have scaffolding on the roof - at long last we have the funds to repair the leaks over the Sharpington Hall! The roofers have done a super job and all gymnasts and staff will be extremely happy to have a leak free gym! 

New Gym Floor for the Sharpington Hall!

What a busy day on the 15th March!  

The existing floor was taken up and the area cleaned thoroughly before taking delivery of a brand new floor from Gymnova.  Thanks to all the staff who helped in the removal and moving of the old floor, and for all the cleaning involved!  The new floor was fitted just in time for the improver classes at 4pm.

Special thanks to Mick George Community Grants who provided a substantial amount of money - £25,000, and to fundraising efforts by the club this floor has nearly been paid for!
