At WWGF we pride ourselves on having a class which is suitable for each individual who wishes to become involved in this wonderful sport. We begin Gymnastics participation as soon as a child can walk, and progress right through to National level competitions. Everyone can find something which suits them at WWGF!
We offer a Free Trial Lesson to all new participants.
Our Pre-School lessons involve movement to music, circuits to develop balance and co-ordination, strength and stamina, and group activity to encourage participation and fun! All classes are 45 minutes long.
PAYG Parent and Toddler Sessions – babies to starting school
Tumbling Toddlers – 2 to 3.5 years (parents participate too)
Rising Fives – 3.5 to 5 years (children take part unaccompanied)

Pre-Grades – gymnasts working towards their first Wiltshire Grade
Grades – gymnasts who have passed their first Wiltshire Grade (2-4 hours per week)
Levels – gymnasts who have passed up to Grade 1 (6 hours per week)
Regional Grades – Grades girls who like a bit of a challenge!
Squad – boys and girls with the potential to compete at Regional Grades, National Grades or Compulsory Grades (8-21 hours per week).
(Please see our ‘Competitions’ page for further details of these Grades)
This is a floor-exercise based discipline using apparatus: ball, hoop, ribbon, rope, and clubs. We have been lucky enough to engage the services of ex-2012 Olympian Francesca Fox to help us to develop this discipline within our Club.
Lessons are held Mondays and Tuesdays and work towards Rebound Therapy accredited award schemes.
Also known as ‘FreeRunning’ or ‘FreeG’, this is the art of expressing oneself in his or her environment without limitation of movement, and involves generally hurling oneself over obstacles in the gym with some semblance of control! This discipline of gymnastics is popular with teens and offers a great alternative to the highly-disciplined skill development of Artistic Gymnastics.
1:1 or 1:2 lessons
WWGF also offers 1:1 lessons with a qualified coach for 1 hour, or 1:2 if children prefer to take part with a friend. This can be a great way to introduce children to gymnastics if they find a lesson environment stressful, if they are shy, or if they need special attention to master a certain skill or skills. These lessons are open to anyone.
WWGF now offers gymnastics-based holiday clubs! These are mixed-ability and mixed age and are open to anyone regardless of their gymnastics experience. These sessions currently run Monday – Friday in school holidays.
