Class update 24/07/2020 -
Video update 22/07/2020 -

Coronavirus update - 10/07/2020
Great news! The gym is re-opening on Monday 27th July. We unfortunately cannot open how we were running before lockdown so we have been trying to work out the safest way to be able to operate and will let you know how it will happen ASAP . As always, thank you for your continued support. https://www.british-gymnastics.org/…/9168-government-announ…
Coronavirus update - 23/06/2020
As you may have seen today, unfortunately the government have not included indoor sport in the next phase of openings on July 4th. We just wanted to let you know that, as a club, we are already working really hard to get the club ready to open as soon as the government allow. Once we are able to open, we will need to phase the return of our gymnasts to ensure we can adapt our environment and delivery to the new safety requirements and health considerations, including social distancing.
For you, this may mean some changes to how you drop off and collect your children, what they can and can’t bring into gym, the timing of their sessions and the kind of activity they will be able to do. The safety of our gymnasts is our absolute priority so we would ask for your support and understanding when we are welcoming your child back to classes.
We will keep you all updated as we progress and let you know more specific details once the government give us a confirmed date. Thanks for your ongoing support as part of the UGC family.
Coronavirus update - 20/03/2020
It is with great sadness that we have to tell you that all Uttoxeter Gymnastics Club sessions have been cancelled after tonight’s session( Friday 20th March )for the foreseeable future. We will keep in touch with you and follow the advice of our governing bodies, health officials and the government as to when we can get back up and running.
As we have no idea what will happen and how long this will be for, please be patient with us, as we have over 1,200 gymnasts , which makes it impossible to answer everyone’s questions. Any updates we have will be posted on Facebook and the website.
We really need your support over the coming weeks/months and would love to see every single one of you back in the gym after this has blown over!
This is a very uncertain time for the country as a whole and especially for clubs and small businesses. There are so many unknowns for the club at present, how long will we remain closed? And what government support we will receive to pay rent, rates, wages, other costs etc. Our first priority is for the club to survive and to re-open safely as soon as possible. We will do everything in our powers to achieve this. Our initial thought ( until the position is clear ) is for fees paid in advance for the rest of this block will be carried forward to when we re-open. We will also look at the position on standing orders .
We would like to thank all of our members and staff for their support during this difficult time and hope that we can offer you more positive news as and when we have it .
We are working hard to get some videos sorted out, that your gymnasts can use at home .
Please look after each other during this difficult time .
Thank you for your ongoing support.

· Coaches are reminding gymnasts about good hygiene whenever they are going for drink breaks, food breaks or toilet visits
· We are disinfecting the equipment, blocks and matting at the end of every day, ready for the next day’s classes
· Coaches are washing their hands and using anti-bacterial gel during class change-overs
We would ask that you support the messages regarding hygiene and ensure gymnasts have washed their hands before starting gym.
We would also request that any families that may have travelled to zoned off areas or areas of high risk in the last 21 days to inform the club. Details of these countries can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public#returning-travellers
If you are advised to self-isolate, please let the club know as we want to be able to take specific advice in this situation.
We would ask that people are sensible in their decision making and mindful of the community within the club and the importance of following NHS and government advice. We want to keep all of your little people safe and having fun.
We will keep you informed of any changes in advice from the government.

The Uttoxeter annual club competition was a fantastic success with a great attendance over 4 sessions and many smiling faces throughout the day. For fund raising for TUMBLES there are photos of groups, medal winners and a few other recent events on the PC in upstairs in corridor by shop to browse, order forms on top of unit, orders to be paid in the shop.
Feedback from judges as per below in italics.
"This is just a quick note to say how much Lynsey and myself enjoyed yesterday. The competition was so relaxed and well organised that it was a pleasure to judge for you, and if you would like us to judge again in the future please let us know and if we're free we'll oblige.
I was so impressed with not only your facility and the gymnasts, but also with the number of coaches and young leaders your club has. It says a lot for the way the club is organised and for the overall leadership. Please pass on my congratulations to everyone involved in the organisation of the day.
(Sorry we had to rush off, but it was a good job we did as we had forgotten how bad the M6 is on a Sunday evening. The journey in the morning took just over and hour but it took nearly 2 hours to get back.)
Again congratulations to Uttoxeter Gym Club for organising a well run day.
See you in due course.
