It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of more national and area events up to December 2020.

This difficult decision has been made following an announcement by British Gymnastics concerning their national events program and in line with the latest advice regarding the hosting of mass gatherings due to Covid-19.

It is hoped however that, if safe and appropriate to do so, we may be able to run some events towards the end of the year.

We understand and share the disappointment of everyone involved and affected by this decision.

Our principal concern is with the health and well-being of our gymnasts, their families, staff, volunteers, officials, coaches and supporters.

We are mindful of the impact cancellations particularly have on qualification and selection – and will work closely with British Gymnastics and relevant parties to identify what steps need to be taken to resolve any issues caused by cancellations.

Full details, split by discipline, are detailed below. 

We hope this information is useful in considering your future plans, but please do be aware that any events potentially planned during this period may change based upon the guidance received from the Welsh Government.  The safety of all our members will continue to be the paramount consideration.
