About & Contact Us

Welcome to Mickleover Gymnastics Club!

Here at MGC we offer professional gymnastics lessons for children from 9 months, from beginner to elite level, in a friendly, encouraging and enthusiastic environment. Our aim is to bring the best out of every child, whether they take part as a healthy hobby, or train with the hope of becoming a future olympian! We have a fantastic team of qualified and experienced coaches, some of which will specialise in different disciplines of gymnastics, to help teach our gymnasts not only the movements needed for gymnastics, but also teamwork, discipline, determination and positive thinking.

A Brief History
Mickleover Gymnastics Club was established in 2002 in a primary school hall in Mickleover village (hence the name) with less than 30 members and minimal equipment. Over the next 7 years we went on to develop and grow, and in 2009 had to re-locate to find our own 11,000 sq ft permanent gymnastics training facility, and we have been here ever since!
