THE annual Basingstoke Gymnastic Club’s End of Year Show once again did not disappoint last weekend.

The show this year was called Where The Wild Things and was inspired by Alexander Elliott-Welch, a Disabilities Gymnast with the club.

In total nearly 200 gymnasts took part from the various squads from the club, each producing great displays.

The squads involved in the show were pre-development, development, development aerobics, display group, aerobic gymnastics, women’s artistic, men’s artistic, adult disabilities, disability gymnasts under-18s, team gym and tumbling.

They vowed packed crowds at their Active Life home over five performances.

These took place across three days with the opening night on Friday evening, followed by two shows on Saturday and again on Sunday.

The first half saw the gymnasts go through their paces with routines, while the second half was inspired by children literature with themes such as Peter Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, Treasure Island and Little Red Riding Hood.

This was the 12th year they have held this annual show.

All who saw them will have gone home in overwhelming wonder and admiration as to what they were able to achieve.

Full credit should go to all the coaches and the volunteers and helpers who made such a good show possible.

As in previous years, the club would like to thank Zeal Productions for the lighting for all the shows.
