Whirlwinds Friendly Competition 1 October 2017
We successfully held our first friendly trampoline and DMT competition at Wellsprings Leisure Centre in Taunton. On trampolining in the region of 190 male and female competitors embraced the friendly at a variety of levels including Schools, NDP Levels 1 to 5 and Open. In addition to trampolining the DMT run was put to good use where 35 competitors took part in NDP Levels 1 to 6 and Open. To end the day the Synchro teams took to the trampolines to show off their synchro skills.
We’d like to thank all the clubs who participated including Alton, Air Extreme, Alchemy, Blandford Forum, Griffin, Honiton Hurricanes, OCRA Flyers, Spire Heights and Zero Gravity.
In a relaxed environment the great value A Star leotards were flying off the rails nearly as quickly as the chocolate tombola stall which was cleared by lunchtime.
All in all a great event that was enjoyed by all.
