4th Apr 2022 | Local Sport
Three Championship titles and two runner up titles were the amazing haul of gold and silver medals and trophies brought home by 10 students from Fish Trampoline Club at the British Schools Gymnastics Association National Trampoline Finals held in Macclesfield on 12th March 2022. The 550 students who qualified across the UK for these finals were the top competitors from the original 2500 who competed at the various regional qualifying competitions which had been held since October 2021.
Having been placed in the top 5 at the South West Regional qualifier, these Fish Trampoline Club students then placed in the top 5 at the Southern Zonal Championships to qualify for the National Finals in their various categories.
The students were representing their schools at these competitions, with 7 of them from Hayesfield Girls School, 1 from Oldfield, 1 from Ralph Allen and 1 from Norton Hill.
They are trained by Simon Briffet and Petra Burgess who run Fish Trampoline Club.
Having not been able to compete or train due to Covid-19 from March 2020, the students were only able to start full training again last September, the students have worked incredibly hard to achieve this level of success.
