Rib Valley Gymnastics & Trampoline Club started in October 2013 using two trampolines and now has 4 trampolines. In January 2018 we added gymnastics classes.
We are a small friendly club that caters for all ages and abilities from the beginner to the more experienced trampolinist & gymnast.
All coaches are British Gymnastics qualified and insured. We are also qualified to coach children with special needs.
We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming to everyone and feel like a little family in Buntingford.
