Why Gymnastics?

British Gymnastics recently undertook some research to understand what skills and abilities are developed by participating in gymnastics.

Results indicate that gymnastics has the ability to develop fundamental skills such as strength, flexibility, balance, problem solving, decision making, leadership and teamwork, which gives participants the ability to transition easily into other sports.
