All About… Harrow School of Gymnastics

Gymnastics is an excellent preparation for many sports and can provide a structured opportunity for children to develop skills such as strength, suppleness, balance and co-ordination and it encourages concentration, discipline and general fitness.

Harrow School of Gymnastics was founded in 1979, originally based at Harrow Leisure Centre. The present purpose-built Gym was built in 1991 with the help of Harrow council, the Sports Council and funds raised by the club itself.

We provide a safe and stimulating environment for gymnastics classes at all levels, from Pre-School to Adult Gym. Most of those involved enjoy General Gymnastics working for British Gymnastics awards and competing in the Club Championships. The performance section comprising Women’s Artistic and Men’s Artistic, gives an opportunity for talented gymnasts to compete within the Club, at Regional, National and International levels.

During the week, inclusive of holidays, we run Play Gym sessions where parents can bring their children to play on the facilities, accompanied by their parents or guardians. There is no tuition during these sessions.

At weekends, the gym can be hired out for parties using the gym facilities (with supervision supplied) and an area to provide refreshments (not supplied).
