Support for gym club will get youngsters involved
Having already nurtured a gold medal winner, Bridge Park gym club wins backing from British Gymnastics
FLEXIBLE friends celebrated becoming the first accredited gymnastics club in the borough.
Bridge Park Gymnastics Club, in Harrow Road, Stonebridge, received the British Gymnastics Gym Mark stamp of approval after proving they met the organisations high standards.
Jessica Capelli, a British Gymnsatics development officer, and Mayor Harbhajan Singh handed over the certificate to Bridge Park coach, Antonia Nnyanzi, at a special ceremony at the club on Wednesday, December 8.
Ms Nnyanzi said: “We have had an amazing first year. Setting up the club and working towards our GYM MARK award has been hard work, but enjoyable. I’m really proud.

Since opening in September 2009 the bi-weekly club has already chalked up success after gymnast Davina Muyololo, 10, won a gold medal at the London mini Youth Games in July.
The club hopes to expand into a dedicated gymnastics centre and encourage more young people into the sport which Ms Nnyanzi says is underrepresented in the borough.
