Rib Valley Gymnastics & Trampoline Club started in October 2013 just as a trampoline club. In January 2018 we added gymnastics classes to our sessions.
We sadly permanently closed our trampoline classes in 2020 which ran at Freman College due to lack of qualified coaches available to run sessions. Gymnastics sessions are still running successfully at Edwinstree School.
We are a small friendly recreational club that caters for all ages and abilities from the beginner to the more experienced 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.
