Hawth Gymnastics was founded by ex-national squad gymnast Sally-Anne Warner in the Summer of 1986, starting out with just two 2-hour sessions per week and training in the basement of the old Crawley Leisure Centre. This gym was shared between Hawth, Crawley Borough Council and Crawley Boys (Formally R & A) Gymnastics Club. In 1998 the club also acquired a small hut in Tilgate Forest that allowed for extra pre-school and recreational classes to be run. The clubs membership grew to over 200 in these two modest venues and our increasingly successful development and squad system was ever growing, with gymnast representing the club at County, Regional and even National Level.
In 2003 plans began for a new leisure centre in Crawley and Hawth was given the opportunity to be the sole operator of a beautiful purpose built gym.
The moved to K2 happened in November 2005 and Hawth took over the Council run classes and merged with Crawley Boys Club to form the Hawth Gymnastics you see today.
Since moving to K2 Hawth has gone from strength to strength, with staff training to higher levels and gymnasts achieving competition success - you can read about our success here
