Garioch Gymnastics Club hosted their second invitational Garioch Glitter Ball

Garioch Gymnastics Club held their second invitational Glitter Ball Competition on Saturday (June 20), at the Garioch Community Centre.

Due to the huge success of last year’s event, the numbers of participants had doubled. We welcomed gymnasts from Banchory Gymnastics Club, Tyock GC, Balmoor GC, Inverurie GSC, Beacon GC, Dundee GC2K and our very own Glitter Girls from Garioch Gymnastics Club. With over 190 gymnasts taking part it was going to be a busy day and with a huge crowd of spectators the Garioch Community Centre was filled with excitement. This event stands out in the competition calendar as we have introduced the Advanced Level allowing the gymnasts the use of the tumble track to demonstrate their somersaults and flips. We also reward the gymnasts with medals and tiaras, crowning the Princess and Queens of the ball.

The club would like to thank the event sponsors: Atholl Scott, Accountants and Tax Advisers, Deeside Physiotherapy and Country Flavours of Alford. We would also like to thank Inverurie Tesco for providing our spectators and participants with yummy hotdogs. The Club organised a number of fundraising activities plus sold an event t shirt for the gymnasts.

• The Club then held their biggest ever Recreational Club Championships on Sunday (June 21). Over 170 recreational gymnasts from our six satellite venues, Inverurie, Insch, Kemnay, Ellon, Kintore and Meldrum took to the competition floor to show off their routines. Another busy and successful day celebrating our recreational gymnasts and their achievements. Every child walked away with a gold medal and certificate for participation with our winners being rewarded with medals, trophies and rosettes.
