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.
