Calypso Gymnastics Club has been running for just over two and a half years. The club was created after identifying there was a lack of gymnastics opportunities in Islington. There is only a couple of affiliated gymnastics clubs in the area and they are all at full capacity, meaning there are a lot of children in the communty who do not have access to a club.
Why we are crowdfunding:
Calypso Gymnastics Club is a community focused club based in Islington North London. We are a small club that opperates through schools, we have recently secured a new hall which will allow us to offer more sessions to the community. We are looking for pledges to help purchase new equipment for the new hall.
As a club, we aim to provide quality gymnastics sessions to all members of the community. We have a stong forcus on participant enjoyment, we believe that everyone should have access to a safe, fun, and friendly gymnastics club.
What we could buy with the funding:
If we hit our initial target of £500 we will be able to purchase a folding wedge and a mini springboard. A folding wedge is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in the gym. It can be used by beginners to help with their rolls all the way up to advanced gymnasts working on back handsprings and somersaults. The mini springboard will help our younger gymnasts develop the correct vaulting technique. It will also be used to help our older gymnasts with their tumbles.
We have a stretched target of £1000, if we manage to achieve this target it will be used to buy a folding wedge, mini springboard and a variety of saftey mats.
