Hawth Teams Qualify for TeamGym British Championships

14th - 15th March 2015 - Bracknell GC

On Saturday 14th March we had gymnast from our developmental (Level 4) groups competing - many of them for the first time - they achieved fantastic results. Our Primary (aged 9 - 11) teams finished 4th (girls) and 6th (boys) in a large and very competitive group. Our Mixed Sex Youth (aged 10 - 14) teams finished in 2nd (0.1 away from the gold!) and 4th place. And our Junior Girls (ages 13 - 17) team finished in 3rd place.

On Sunday 15th March our highest level teams were making a bid to qualify for the National Finals in Liverpool in August, although there was a competition for medals going on on the day all the teams were really concerned about was making the qualifying score (38.00 for Youth and 40.00 for Junior).

The first team to secure a place in Liverpool were our Senior Men's team made up of long-term Hawth gymnasts aged 17 - 20,  some of whom are also now coaches with us. The guys put out come very big skills and got a great reaction from the audience. They finished 3rd the Southern competition and 4th in the whole country.

Our Youth Girls were first to compete. They qualified for the British Championships last year and finished 3rd at the finals but their preparation for this competition was plagued by injuries (two team members were watching from the stands in plaster casts!). They finished 8th in their group but managed to score 39.78 so have qualified for the finals and now have 4 months to rebuild and recover.

Our Youth Boys team were up next, the boys scored a personal best on floor (14.25) and performed faultlessly on tumble, unfortunately they had a few issues on trampette and vault leaving them with a final score of 37.35, just shy of the qualification score. As the boys missed out by such a small margin they are currently waiting to see if they will be invited to the finals and will know by the end of the week. The boys also placed second in the group and brought home a set of silver medals for the club.

Our Junior Boys team competed in the final round with tough competition from teams from London and Southampton, the boys were the highest scorers on floor and trampette but finished 2nd overall with a score of 37.05 - unfortunately missing out on qualification for the finals.

The stars of the day were our Junior Girls Team who smashed the qualification score (totaling 44.66) and also finished first in their group bringing home a set of gold medals and a trophy for the club. This score was the highest score by a junior girls team across all the qualification competitions in the country.  The girls will be joining the Youth Girls and (hopefully!) the youth boys at the finals in August as the favorites to win the title.

Hawth Host Regional Championships

Sunday 1st March 2015

This was a busy day for Hawth; we hosted the annual Regional Men's Artistic Championships. There were over 70 entrants from across the south-east region competing here during the day.

It takes a lot of hard work to host an event like this in our gym. Hawth is extremely grateful to the parents for their help in setting up the gym on Saturday, during the day, and putting the gym back together at the end of the day. We simply could not hold this kind of event without your help.

We also trialed a new score system during the day, which was a great success. Do ask Kevin Payne about it if you are interested.

Regional Championships (Team-gym)

Hawth hosted the annual South East and Open TeamGym Championships  on Saturday 22 November. 

A very big well done to everyone involved. The Hawth gymnasts were, as always, spectacular and came away with an array of medals.

The Hawth team behind the organisation of the event were amazing! Thank you to every single person who helped make the day a success.
