Best trampoline club in town?

We always like to think that in Brentwood Trampoline Club we have something special and our success in being selected as a Brentwood Council 'Academy Club' and in achieving GymMark last year have helped support that view. It is now clear as well that competitively we are performing very well indeed.

Analysing our results over the recent competitive period shows that we achieve a higher proportion of podium positions at national competitions and achieve significantly higher form marks in regional competitions than some other local clubs. The results show:

Club A
Club B
Average National entries (grade 1 & 2) 2008 to date
Average finalists
Average medallists

Average Regional Grading entries Oct 2007 to date
Weighted average set round form score

We might not be biggest but we certainly seem to be best!

Daniel Frost, Harriett Gill, Georgia Walker, Mark Hardiman & Emma Richardson all got trophies; Daniel, Emma Frost & Emma Richardson all posted new Personal Best scores whilst Nicole Ballantyne & Abbie Gunton survived first time nerves with some credit!

More detailed results are available on-line here.

Jack Petchey - May winner

Having spent a considerable time competing at Grade 3 our May winner pulled herself into Grade 2 this year and has flourished. Starting the season gingerly she has recently achieved consistent scores qualifying her to National Finals and also medalled. Well done Chrissie Law, the hard work you show consistently in training is paying dividends.

More about our Jack Petchey programme is available online at our website here.

Perth Gala - Medals Galore

Three of our grade 2 performers took the long road to Perth last weekend. Accompanied by mum's, head coach Paul (& Kendra) Chrissie Law, Hannah McCann & Kensie Sherlock (all of whom had already qualified for nationals) had differing objectives but principle was to final and get onto the podium. This they achieved with all three performing well, Chrissie took 3rd place and Hannah & Kensie both won. More detailed results are on our website here.
