I'm starting at the University this weekend and I REALLY want to get into gymnastics.

It appears that the university doesn't run a club, so I was wondering if anyone could tell me any external clubs that may exist in Sheffield - prices, location etc would be great.

Thanks in advance

I had this problem when I was looking a couple of years ago - there's basically nowhere for adults looking to get into gymnastics! Sheffield Uni used to run a club but it closed down due to funding issues.

I go to capoeira if thats any use to you, not quite the same thing but it has acrobatic/breakdancing influences and is great for improving agility.

Thanks a lot for the info. Yes, I was going to look into Capoeira.

Does anyone know of any external clubs that do adult gymnastics classes? I feel sure there must be one somewhere in the city. Any info would be great.

Sorry about the late reply, but this might help you.

I run a small session for peole to practice tricks (martial arts acrobatics) that is similar. see www.tricksnflips.co.uk for more info.

Also there is an Acrobatics class in rotherham run by marcelo, i havnt been for a while, but the classes are very good.

As far as i know that is all in the way of gymnastics, but if you find anything else let me know.

howdey, I used to go to Graves but it shut down. Theres one at the old gym but its crubling apart, once when i was on the bar a bit of the ceiling fell of.... the sponge pit smells of rats, smelly feet, beer, fags etc. And the hole place is totally minging.
