Opened in November 1999, our venue was one of the first purpose-built facilities to benefit from National Lottery funding and has undergone a series of extensions and improvements over the years. We offer access to activities including structured classes, casual sessions, parties and holiday activities.
The Centre now benefits from a designated recreational gymnasium as well as a competitive gymnasium, dance studio, treatment rooms and classroom / meeting room. The apparatus includes Asymmetric Bars, High Bars, Parallel Bars, High and Low Beams, Rings, Vaults, Pommels, Sprung Floor Area of competition standard, Tumble Track, Fast Track, Foam Pits, Trampettes and floor level Trampolines. It is one of the best gymnastic venues in the country with excellent viewing balconies where parents and guests can watch in comfort as the gymnasts participate.
Pipers Vale Gymnastics Club was established at the Centre when local clubs joined forces to become one of the largest and best equipped competitive gymnastics clubs in the country. The Club now has gymnasts competing at International level as well as National, Regional and County level; we also have gymnasts in the National, Regional and County squads.
Our facility is not just for the elite gymnasts you see on TV or those competing at high level but for use by the whole community. We organise structured courses and classes for all ages and abilities from Pre-School to Junior Advanced Recreational, casual Free Style Youth Activities, daily play sessions for Parent & Toddlers as well as school holiday sessions. We also have a well established Schools programme in operation which caters for nursery schools right through to curriculum high school level.
We don’t just cater for children either... Tuesday and Thursday night is Adult Night, a fun informal chance to train or simply “have a go”.
Dance classes are available at the Centre run by the Jessica Ann School of Dance and Lenny Austin of the Caribbean Karate Club also runs sessions at the Centre on Friday evening.
