A team of gymnasts from Worksop have brought silver medals back from a regional competition, as they prepare for the county championships.

At the Regional Team Championships in Leicester, a team of five youngsters, aged between 10 and 12, represented Worksop Gymnastics Club.

Abby Macpherson, Grace Ally, Hanna Morton, Hallie Elkington and Pippa Chalmers were all in action, and coach Yvonne Monks was delighted with their performances.

She said: “ The girls all produced solid routines to take the team to a close second place behind Notts Gymnastics Club.”

“Worksop Gymnastics Club is incredibly proud of its Junior team for bringing back silver medals.”

There was individual glory too, for national gymnast Chalmers.

Her coach added: “Pippa performed outstandingly and achieved the overall individual highest score of the competition.”

The girls are now working hard towards the County Championships, to be held in July.

Worksop Gymnastics Club will be holding regular gymnastic ‘fundays’ during the school summer holidays.

These sessions are aimed at children who want to try the sport for the first time.
