A strong and determined acrobatics team from Hollington Gymnastics Club enjoyed a fantastic experience at Spelthorne’s Acrobatic Cup in Sunbury-on-Thames.

This is always a very tough competition with some of the top partnerships from across Britain competing. Hollington held their heads high with all gymnasts producing some outstanding routines in a very high quality event.

The highlight of the weekend was the bronze medal for Liam Webb and Jolie Nash with their grade three mixed pair. They achieved the same result at grade two last season.

The talented pairs are now looking forward to a trip back to Spelthorne for the National Qualifiers later this month.
