Help us create an amazing space for our gymnastics club to be accessible and enjoyable for our local community!

We're still collecting donations

On the 28th August 2023 we'd raised £3,437 with 70 supporters in 69 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Who are we?

Pix Gymnastics Club is a British Gymnastics registered, “not for profit” club using the Pix Brook Academy sports hall, based in Stotfold. We currently run classes for 2 evenings and a Saturday morning. 

We started in 2021 with a relatively small amount of equipment, which was purchased personally by our founder. A small team of qualified coaches and enthusiastic volunteer helpers have seen the club grow to a membership of over 230 children and a waiting list of over 200.  We are passionate about what we do and are focused to ensure each gymnast reaches their full potential.

When we opened our doors in 2021 we were excited and extremely happy to see the response to our gymnastics classes.  The numbers of children attending far exceeded our expectations.  

This is how we looked then:

We are very proud we now fill the hall with equipment. 

This is how we look now:

Our vision is to obtain a well located, dedicated building with easy access by foot for our local community and enough parking for those members travelling from further afield.

It will be a multifunctional building to include a Gymnastics hall, viewing and seating area, additional training rooms, dance studio, weights and fitness room. The Gym will be a bright, colourful and welcoming place with top of the range equipment.

Our new gym will offer gymnastics to all disciplines both for competitive and recreational.  The gym will be available to all of our community; for all ages from preschool to senior citizens, disabled and underprivileged.  We will be a community focused gym with our mission to be available and inclusive to all. 

What our new Gym could look like:

Why are we crowdfunding?

Whilst the Pix Brook Academy Sports hall is a fantastic training venue it has its restrictions.  We need to have access during the day to be able to provide activities for mothers and toddlers, pre school children and senior citizens.

It is not ideal that we have to set up and pack away the equipment for each session. Our storage facility is in a 20ft container outside, the unpredictable British weather can give us some serious challenges.

We are crowdfunding to raise money so that we can confidently start to plan the move to a permanent facility.

How we’ll spend the money raised

The money raised will be ring fenced and used to secure a lease on a property which will become our new home. This is what we see as the first phase of our journey to setting up the gym. Once secured, we can get to work on creating the amazing space we want to offer to our community.

Community impact

Our vision of a dedicated space, with gym facilities, space for complimenting activities and a place to meet up with friends will have a very positive effect on our community. 

Our facility will allow us to offer places to more children.  Their parents will have a place to connect with other parents and help build a community spirit.

A sports facility is a good way for young people to make connections and allows them to find mentors. It can result in them having an opportunity to be involved in sport and coaching, changing their lives forever.

It is recognised that exercise improves health and wellbeing. Our facility will offer activities and a place to meet up, to build a community.
