Welcome to Gymnastics
Do you have a background in gymnastics? Have you never even tried a roly-poly but want to learn? Want to find a place to develop your parkour/calisthenics skills? Welcome to Uni of Leeds Gymnastics Society – we are the society for you! Chalk up, tighten those grips, and get ready to soar through the air like never before!
Who can join?
At Uni of Leeds Gymnastics, we firmly believe that gymnastics is an inclusive sport, open to individuals of all skill levels and backgrounds. This past year alone we have had members from Acro, Aerobics, Teamgym, Tumbling, Parkour and Dance who have all enjoyed being able to train what they are used to as well as try something new. Together, we create an atmosphere of encouragement and achievement which has seen us nominated for Club of the Year for two years running.
We train three a week at a nearby facility with top-notch equipment, including beams, bars, vault, rings, trampolines, and more. Our relaxed sessions offer the option to work on the coached stations for extra guidance or explore the rest of the gym to focus on your desired skills.
Tuesday 8 - 9.30pm (Meet outside Parkinson’s Steps at 7.30pm)
Wednesday 2 - 3.30pm (Meet outside Parkinson's Steps at 1.30pm)
Sunday 4.30 - 6pm (Meet outside Parkinson’s Steps at 4pm)

Throughout the year, we compete in multiple competitions including the University Gymnastics Cup across the north region, BUCS, national UGC Finals and inter-university Christie, Derby and Varsity.

UoL Gymnastics isn't just about nailing flips and the fun doesn’t stop at training! We're also experts in organizing incredible social events that will make your university experience truly unforgettable. From wild nights out on the town to movies in our favorite onesies, we've got it all. We cater to everyone’s tastes offering a fantastic variety of sober and drinking events throughout the year. Some of our highlights this year have been our weird and wacky Taskmaster social, our annual Love Island social, Gymnastics Tour in Croatia, the trips to Ninja Warrior UK and our Halloween movie night.
