    We're delighted to announce the POW! Academy is now available for British Gymnastics registered clubs, leisure centres and delivery partners to download and deliver!


    The POW! Academy is a new initiative developed by British Gymnastics and the Cartoon Network, featuring the Powerpuff Girls. It's aimed at budding gymnasts aged 5-11yrs and challenges gymnasts to show off their talents and display their skills in a brand new way. Every time a gymnast successfully achieves a new level, they’ll be rewarded through a new badge and certificate scheme. 

    The partnership was recently launched at British Gymnastics HQ with characters from the series, star gymnasts Ellie Downie, Hamish Carter and local gymnasts were invited to an inaugural taster session. The Powerpuff Girls' attributes of inclusivity, courage and teamwork are a good fit with our sport and this strategic

  5. 2018 is a milestone year for British Gymnastics as we reach our 130th birthday!

    The inaugural meeting of the Amateur Gymnastics Association, (later to become the British Amateur Gymnastics Association and now British Gymnastics), took place on 21 June 1888. The meeting was held in response to a national call for a single organisation to take responsibility for setting standards, certificating coaches and organising competitions in the sport which was relatively new in the UK but growing rapidly in popularity and participation. 

    It’s been quite a journey and we are delighted that 130 years on, gymnastics is thriving; participation is rising and our medal-winning teams have never been so decorated. We have much to celebrate and we want to extend a sincere thank you to all those who’ve contributed - past and present.

    We are very proud to have played a part in growing and supporting grass roots participation, developing top-level talent,
