About the Club

Since its formation in 2012, the club has gone on to achieve huge success and is proud to be entering its 5th year as an official club in the Athletics Union. In January 2017 we were thrilled to move into a brand new state of the art facility called Manchester Academy of Gymnastics. Training is on a Monday evening 7-9pm and a Wednesday afternoon 3-5pm and includes full use of all facilities. Each session is run my two coaches catering to all abilities and levels of experience. We compete at national level at BUCS and at friendly competitions all over the country, however there is no pressure on our members to take part in competitions. We welcome all abilities from complete beginners to seasoned gymnasts. We'd love to see you at our training sessions.

Club Philosophy

UMGC is a diverse, exciting club that welcomes everyone of all abilities. The club offers members the opportunity to participate in a sport that combines strength, stamina and flexibility in a welcoming, fun and extremely friendly atmosphere. We believe that anyone has the potential to be an amazing gymnast and we take pride in every one of our members developments, big or small. More advanced gymnasts are equally given the support they need to progress and compete at national level.

Sporticipate GymFit

Sporticipate is working with British Gymnastics to deliver their GymFit programme. It is not restricted to where you live, what year you are studying in and welcomes all abilities to the sessions. The best bit it is FREE and open to all students and staff at The University of Manchester.


Once you sign up, you can also try out other sports for free, with over 60 hours of free sport available each week!

GymFit is a programme which can be used to improve the general fitness and physical condition of your participants via a series of fun and challenging exercise work cards. There are beginner, intermediate and advanced work cards which work the upper body, lower body, core and cardio vascular system.

There will always be a qualified instructor on hand to run the sessions so just wear suitable clothing and bring a bottle of water.
