Welcome to Ruthin & Denbigh Gymnastics Club Ltd, who for over 20 years have had a great journey, developing the pathways for new members to join and progress. Expanding from an original base at the Ruthin and Denbigh Leisure centres, in 2017 the club successfully secured “Clwyd House” - a fit for purpose, 4500 square ft gymnastics centre. Clwyd House Gymnastics Centre is located on the Colomendy Industrial Estate in Denbigh, offering gymnastics to a large community of members.
The Ruthin based Leisure Centre classes continue to prosper as a satellite club, The club facilitates a range of classes for both boys and girls from walking age to adults, with the ethos to facilitate each gymnast to grow as an individual and reach their potential. They may choose to improve their “Perfect Basics” or further enjoy “Team Gym Competitive” or “Artistic Competitive” classes through our DO MORE pathway.
We understand joining or moving a class can be exciting for some but unsettling for others, so please talk to Directors Tamsin or Heather to further help settling in as a member of our club. There will also be times when your child moves up a group and may need extra support from us and you, to progress happily to the next stage of the Club’s development pathway. We are here to encourage a positive partnership between parent, child and club.
Ruthin & Denbigh Gymnastics Club's Development Pathway reflects the clubs constitutional, inclusive grass-roots philosophy, to offer "Gym For All" classes to as many children as possible in the region.
The aim of this club is to coach each individual child to reach their full potential in gymnastics within a safe, effective, child-centered, fun learning environment.
We specialise in Team Gym and our competitive teams represent the club at competitions across the UK.
Every coach will endeavour to develop each child with a prospect to progress from the Recreational "Gym For All" Classes to the Club-Level Sessions. For those aspiring to higher-performance gymnastics, we offer a DO MORE "Perfect Basics" and Competition Pathway.
British Gymnastics Qualified Coaches
We provide a child/member-centred, coach-led programme and we endeavour to help every child reach their optimum level of performance.
Our coaches are all British Gymnastics qualified coaches at the appropriate level and have been screened for their suitability to work with children. A Welfare Officer has been appointed by the Club to monitor good practice, and uphold the club's welfare responsibilities.
Why Take Part in Gymnastics?
Gymnastics is a wonderful sport for boys and girls, and will help them develop coordination, strength, balance and flexibility, which are the fundamentals underpinning all other sports. It can also build self-esteem, and improve skills such as self-discipline and concentration. Plus, being a gymnast is a lot of fun!
