Springbucks Gymnastics Club is a gymnastics and trampolining club for children and young people aged 4-16, based around Marlow and High Wycombe, South Buckinghamshire. The club was started in September 2009 working together with the local schools sports partnership to provide affordable and sustainable gymnastics in local school and is run by Head Coach Ruth Middleton along with a team of paid coaches and parent volunteers. Currently we run gymnastics classes 4 days a week and trampolining classes twice a week – click on Term Time Classes for full details.
We are affiliated with UK Gymnastics who provide full insurance cover for all our coaches and every child who is a member of the club, and in 2012 we were accredited the Wycombe Sports Mark by Wycombe District Council.
