A team must take part in two or more competitions to gain points to add to an overall total from the team’s best two scores.

SGA coach Evy Walker said: “Everybody at the club is really proud of the team and their fantastic international achievements.

“Participation in the International Cup in Gran Canaria was a fantastic opportunity for the team, giving the members the chance to compete at an international level, while building confidence, increasing skills, enhancing team spirit.

“The gymnasts also took part in the 53rd Blume festival which is an international sports festival offering gymnasts to chance to perform their skills in front of large crowds around the island.

“The team was joined by some of the younger members of SGA in the festival performance which was a great experience for all. Everyone worked really hard and had lots of fun in the sun.”
