Six gymnasts, who train at the Fun Abounds Trampoline Centre, in Uckfield, have won through to the Schools National Trampoline Finals.

Four of the six qualified in first place. Eight gymnasts from the Sky High Club took part in the competition.

Some of the Sky High gymnasts who competed in the Southern qualifying round of the Schools National Trampoline competition. They are Milla Winslet, Pearl Winslet, Sam Plummer, and Nick Orwin.

The British Schools Gymnastic Association Southern Zonal qualification round was held at Gillingham in Kent. The national final will be held in Eastleigh, Southampton, on Saturday, March 14.

Sky High head coach, Gail Andrews, said: “This is a great opportunity for our gymnasts to give something back to their schools.

Daniel Bradford, one of four gymnasts from the Sky High Club, Uckfield, who qualified for the Schools National Trampoline Finals in first place.

“The gymnasts frequently require the schools’ support when competing in events throughout the season, as often time off is required to attend national and international competitions, or for extra training sessions during the day.

“So to be able to win a medal for the school is very rewarding.”

More than 360 gymnasts from across the Southern region competed at Gillingham at the same time as qualification events were held in Midland and Northern regions and a closely matched and exciting national final is expected.
