BRACKNELL Gymnastics Club held its biggest ever summer micro TeamGym competition recently.

In all, 64 teams competed and such was the popularity of the event that another 20 teams were turned away.

The home club had plenty to celebrate themselves after the men’s team finishing first in tumbling and trampette.

They had to fight off stiff competition from a strong Hawth team before recording the highest scores of the day.

Bracknell also finished fifth and sixth in the Level 4 girls group, with only 0.3 points separating the team in fifth and the winning club.

A number of Bracknell gymnasts are now preparing for the upcoming British Championships in Liverpool at the end of the month.
