The Club - Flips Gymnastics Club

Founded as a small club in 1985 by Sue West and Jenny Pritchard, Flips now has over 300 members.


Sue and Jenny have a wealth of experience and started as competitive Artistic Gymnasts. In 1983 they switched to Acrobatic Gymnastics, going on to represent Great Britain on several occasions as a Women's pair and then as a Women's trio, teaming up with Tina Hall.

They started Flips with an aim to pass on their love of gymnastics to others and to encourage children to participate in the sport. 

Flips offer recreational classes to children from the age of 2 and a half upwards at The Hatfield Leisure Centre.  Some gymnasts progress to squad level and complete in acrobatic gymnastics at county and regional level. 

The club is affiliated to British Gymnastics with all coaches being BG qualified and we follow their official award schemes.
