The Main Gym Area

Ellan Vannin Gymnastics Club prides itself on having excellent equipment, some of which have seen World Champions compete on them. We were lucky enough to acquire some equipment that had been used at major competitions. As part of the extension, we were able to build a large viewing gallery for people to watch competitions.

They saying goes, ‘Every cloud has a silver lining.’ The gym, along with other venues around our area, experienced a huge flood which completely destroyed our facility. The silver lining for us was that we were able to get brand new equipment, of which some had been used in the Commonwealth Games.

Our gym is fully-fitted with 3 high beams, 2 low beams and 1 medium height beam. We have 2 sets of asymmetric bars, one of which is over the pit, and one single bar.

We also have a purposely dugout area which holds our U-pit bar – much easier to climb onto and for coaches to support. The gym is lucky enough to have a permanent competition viewing gallery which holds over 100 people.

Welcome to the Pre-School Gym

The pre-school gym, located through the first door, holds fun and excitement for the young children especially. Purpose-made for young gymnasts, the pre-school gym offers soft matting throughout which reduces any risk scrapes or bruises, a small single bar which helps develop grip strength at a young age before entering the main gym, a small beam that develops confidence on a thin surface but trying out the higher ones in the main gym, a small trampoline that develops core strength and coordination; essential for developing gymnasts. This room is a fantastics stepping stone to help small and young gymnasts get ready for more skills in the future.

Viewing Gallery

We are lucky enough to have had a viewing gallery built as part of the extension, purely for competitions. This enables everyone to come and enjoy watching their child participate in competitions doing skills in this exciting sport. Another enjoyable feature is spectators do not feel cramped or uncomfortable with spacious, tiered seating with a broad view of the gym.

The Cafe Area

Upstairs, you will find a viewing gallery so you can watch your gymnasts progress and enjoy their gymnastics. Incorporated into this area, there is a fully-fitted kitchen with tables and chairs outside of the kitchen to cater for your needs.
