Carlisle Gymnastics Club

Carlisle Gymnastics Club was formed in 1984 with the aim of promoting the development of all forms of gymnastics. The first training sessions were held in Trinity School, the Sands Leisure Centre and the former Sports Centre in Strand Road, Carlisle.

Following several years of expansion and consolidation it was found that being spread over more than one location was proving difficult for both coaches and gymnasts. We then moved into Newlaithes School, which we quickly outgrew in terms of size and training times available. A major search was made for new premises and after much negotiation, and agreement was signed for the use of the YMCA in Fisher Street. The club started sessions there in September 1989.
