East Midlands junior & Senior Club Team Championships 2013
The competition was held on Sunday 19th May at Leicester at new college.
Hinckley & Burbage Gymnastics Club regained their junior team title for the third year in a row in this prestigious regional event. It was the first year the club had entered a senior team and they were runners up.
This year the pressure was on the club to see if we could keep hold of the junior trophy after the last two years of success. The junior team was made up with the top five gymnasts at the club under 12yrs old. None of the girls had been in the team in the previous year’s events so they were all nervous about that and a bit apprehensive as this was also the first event of the year.
Hinckley and Burbage 1st place followed by Coalville 2nd place and Kettering were in 3rd place.

The senior team did a great job and came home in 2nd position which for our first ever senior team was an excellent achievement. Coalville 1st place and Witham Hill were in 3rd place.

Head Coach Sharon Thomas said “For Regional gymnastics this is the premier club event of the year. For our junior team to have won again is fantastic and to get a silver medal in the senior event gives us great confidence for next years event. Being the first event of the year we have made a great start to the season. We must now concentrate our efforts towards the county championships in June. We hope that with great results like this the younger gymnasts at the club will be inspired to continue the success.
Well done to all the gymnasts who competed on the day and to all the coaches and volunteers at the club for all the hard work that goes into making great teams like this.”
