About Us

We are a GymMark accredited Rhythmic Gymnastics Club based within University of Worcester Riverside, funded in 2011 as the dream and focus of Head Coach, Petra Bland. We currently offer recreational, development and individual and group competitive programmes up to national level, to all children aged 18 months to 16.

Our aim is to engage the local community in introducing Rhythmic Gymnastics through our recreational programme as a safe and fun way to exercise.
