*IMPORTANT* Good afternoon everyone! We have some exciting changes happening at Tumbling Teddies! Our gym is now moving to a colour group for our new schedule for September. The schedule will go live on Monday 17th August. All current Gymnasts attending will be given their colours during classes this week for both Gymnastics and Tumbling so you can then choose your sessions. All Gymnasts registered before lockdown that wish to return in September will be informed of their colours. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions on class numbers, the need for make up classes when people will be on holiday and sadly some spaces being booked then not attended and paid for (which meant we had people who couldn't rejoin yet due to numbers) we have made the decision to move from monthly classes to term time. All our current sessions will end on August 29th. All new classes will begin Monday 7th September. We are not increasing our fees. We will still have sibling discount and discount on more than one class a week. We will also allow the term to be paid in 2 halves to help under the current circumstances. Please discuss with Kelly if needed. All families that kindly helped with payments during lockdown will be contacted regarding fees already paid. Once the schedule goes live and current members have picked their session/sessions all spaces will be held pending payment. Payments will be due by September 4th. If payments aren't made we can not hold the spot. We will then contact our waiting list with remaining availability. We will be offering camps and skill clinics throughout the holidays. We hope you all understand our need for changes to be able to keep our wonderful Gymnastics family going and thank you all so much for all the support and love you have shown us throughout this challenging time. Coach Kelly and Coach Scarlet xx ... See moreSee less
We'll be there on Saturday! 😊 So just to clarify, from September onwards, classes will be term time only? Xx
Hi kelly!! Maisie are Ophelia won’t be able to attend this weeks as away till Tuesday evening. Could you let me know there colours please ?
We can’t make it this week Kelly as we are away. Can you let me know Freya’s colour x
Hi kelly ella won't be there next week the 18th we are on holiday,
However she has hurt her knee last night she still wants to come tomorrow evening but she might not be able to do some of it she feel in the door and hit her knee on the door frame nice lump and limping a bit but xray was fine x
Hi kelly, we are not attending this week can you let me know Maddies colour please? Thank you x
Hi Kelly, has there been aany movement from BG in regards to toddler sessions (I understand I'm probably being hopeful here!! 😂). Hope your all well xx
We are having a wonderful time being back to what we love and the children are being fantastic with all our social distancing.
Here are a few reminders as we are getting back to classes.
All fees for sessions booked for August are now due. Due to our limited numbers for classes if payments haven't been made by Saturday we will have to offer spots to other students that are waiting to return.
Please remember to send your Gymnast with a water bottle with their name on.
Please also make sure your Gymnasts have footwear on that they can take off and put on by themselves as we are not allowed to assist with this currently.
When it is raining we do expect the Gymnasts to line up outside. We will collect them from your vehicle and walk them out to you during pick up.
We appreciate your support with this and for supporting our club.
We have lots of exciting things coming up so keep a close eye on the page 😁 ... See moreSee less
* Please make sure your Gymnast has a water bottle with their name on it when they come to class. We can no longer provide water cups. We will be double checking they have them before they leave class because if they leave it behind we are unable to keep it for you. All bottles will have to be thrown away.
* Please make sure your Gymnasts hair is tied up and that they have shoes on that are easy for them to remove and put on by themselves.
* Gymnasts need to be dressed ready for class as no changing facilities will be available. They need to bring the minimum with them possible.
Thank you for your assistance with following our guidelines.
Happy Monday everyone! I'm very much looking forward to seeing more of my Gymnasts this week! Our sessions are filling up super fast and many are now full. If you haven't confirmed your class choice please do so as soon as you can. We are receiving lots of new enquiries and want to make sure all current Gymnasts get a spot over the summer. We will be assessing all Gymnasts ready for our new September schedule released in a few weeks so if your Gymnast is ready to move up they will do so then. If you have already informed me of your return in September you will be guaranteed a spot as no Gymnast registered with us will lose out due to COVID-19. Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing you all soon. Coach Kelly ... See moreSee less
Yesterday was amazing. I've been smiling non stop since and can't wait for next week! 💪🤸♀️🥰Yesterday we reopened our doors after 4months. It was absolutely wonderful to see our first Gymnasts back doing what we all love so much. We had fun using our awesomeness reader (A.K.A the infrared thermometer 😉) and I'm pleased to say they all read fabulous as expected 😊 Our one way system around the gym worked beautifully, as did our separate entrance and exit and the whole day was just wonderful 🥰 I'm so excited to see some more of our gym family this coming week! Remember we will be back stronger than ever as we are GYMNASTS! 💪🤸♀️♥️💙 ... See moreSee less

*Gymnasts will line up outside the main entrance behind the markers (under the Tumbling Teddies Gymnastics sign)
*All classes are running on reduced numbers and have a maximum of 8 students per session.
*To minimise the amount of people within the building we are requesting at this time parents do not stay for the session unless there is a medical need to do so. This can be discussed with Kelly. If a parent does stay we request that it is one parent and no siblings.
*Any adult within the building must wear a facemask. There will be a coach outside to supervise students lining up and entering the gym.
*Once the student enters they will be marked as present by another coach and their temperature taken with an infrared thermometer and they will use hand sanitizer.
*They will then be shown to their chair where they place their shoes and drink bottle.
*Please send your Gymnast in shoes that they can take off and put on easily. Flip flops or slides are great.
*Gymnasts must be dressed ready for class as there is no option to change on site. They can wear a jumper or hoody over their leotards etc as they can put them on their designated chair. Please make sure long hair is tied back.
*Gymnasts will be shown to their workout station and sit on their coloured spot.
*All students will be socially distanced on their station.
*We have created a one way system around the gym with an easy to follow path.
*The Gymnasts will have access to the bathroom which will be cleaned repeatedly.
*There will be signs to remind Gymnasts cough or sneeze into tissue or the crook of their elbow.
*Once class is complete the Gymnasts will be dismissed one by one to their chair to collect their belongings. They will then follow the one way system to the back of the gym to put on their shoes etc.
*They will then hand sanitize and be dismissed by a coach to their parents at the opposite end of the gym (the doors with the Gymnasts on)
*Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or anyone who shares a household with someone with symptoms must not attend the club until their quarantine has finished or they are no longer showing symptoms.
*Please make sure all contact information held with us is up to date.
*After each session the gym will be thoroughly cleaned ready for the next class.
We understand that there are a lot of changes for our students and that it can be an anxious time for them. We will endeavour to make it all as easy and fun for them as possible whilst making sure their safety and well being is our top priority.
If you have any questions at all please contact Kelly via phone, email or messenger. ... See moreSee less
Good evening to all our Gymnast families. We have been carefully organising our July/August schedule to accommodate all our amazing gymnasts whilst keeping within all government and our UKG guidelines for their safety and well being. This has been a challenging time for us all and I want all our gymnasts to be able to return to what they love from July 25th. Below is our new schedule for returning. There will be another updated schedule sent to all families next month ready for September. We have a set recommendation of Gymnasts per class but we are reducing that number to make sure we still provide the level of care and gymnastic instruction that you know and expect from us. Please take a look and then pm us with your first and second choice of session. We aim to give everyone their first option but due to limited numbers we want to have a back up option for you. We would request that siblings currently attend the same class. Along with your request please provide an up to date email address so we can send you the full set of guidelines for returning. We are so looking forward to seeing you all! Kelly and Scarlet
I don’t know if I’m missing something, I can’t see the classes for the under 5s 🙈
Are these summer holiday session times? X
Hi Kelly Tuesday 6pm for Darcey please x
So looking forward to coming back. Could maya have a place on a Wednesday session preferably or if not a Tuesday xx
Hiya, I'd love Milton to restart. On a Monday would be great, I think he was in intermediate boys 6-8 years? Be great to get back! X
Hi Kelly hope you are well. Either of the Saturday beginner classes would be best for us with Sadie starting school in September she wouldnt be there in time for the Wednesday class x... Also if Sophie and Megan are in the same class that would be great
I dont mind which class Evelyn gets put in for over the holidays would be grateful if she could stay with Lucy though x
Hi Kelly are you not running the tots sessions at present? Or am i being blind xx
So does that mean ella is Tuesday 6 -6.45 x
Hi Kelly, I’ve messaged you re above thanks x
I'm not sure what class summer is meant to be in, I'm not sure she's still in beginner? Xx
8+ Tuesday or Wednesday is fine for Ruby x
I am going to see if she could do the 4 o clock session on a Monday, I can’t make the earlier session because of work same problem every day except Friday but no girl option on Friday! She does intermediate now, would daisy do that?? Xx
Hi hun I'm pm'd you 😊 x

Hi Kelly, hope your well. Will there be a toddler class or will that hopefully return in September! X
A year ago today! How much would I love to be at our showcase today with all my Gymnasts 😭 Minus the hand breaking moment of course 😂So after my stumble during the showcase today it turns out that I have a spiral fracture of my 5th metacarpal. Huge cast and might need surgery! 🤦 Thank you to everyone for making sure I was ok. I love my gym family xxx ... See moreSee less
As you all are aware by the latest guidelines on the news we are not able to reopen on July 4th as we were led to believe. I have to admit I cried some tears and had a good rant about how unfair it is. Gymnastics and many other sports are so important for not just keeping children's bodies healthy but their minds too. They have been through so many changes and had their world's turned upside down. We need to give them back some of the activities that bring them so much joy and enrichment! I don't know what date we will be able to open as we only find out as the general public do but rest assured I am more than ready and have made a million plans for however we are allowed to do this. I miss you all terribly and can not wait to get back to what I love.
Please pass this on to your Gymnasts
Coach Kelly is getting the gym ready for you and can't wait to see you and always know that you are amazing, you are strong, you are absolutely incredible, you are gymnasts! Lots of love Coach Kelly xx ... See moreSee less

You are all so fantastic and amazing! I am so in love with this video of you all ♥️ Turn up your volume and enjoy! Keep smiling, keep practicing and 'we will be back stronger than ever because we are GYMNASTS! 🤸♀️💪 ... See moreSee less
Good morning Gymnasts! I absolutely love all the videos you guys have been sending for our keep on moving compilation! We still have time if you haven't sent one yet and would like to be part of it🤸♀️💪🤸♀️ ... See moreSee less
It's been a month since we closed our doors. To say I am missing my gym family would be a huge understatement! I am especially missing hearing them all say ' Kelly watch!' 😂
I hope you are all keeping well and managing to enjoy a little outside time each day.
I am absolutely loving all the videos and pics you are sending me of your gymnasts practicing. Please feel free to keep them coming!
I have been busy making lots of fun plans for when we get back to the gym. Including a gallery wall for all the gymnasts. So get busy drawing us a bright and colourful picture of your favourite thing about Gymnastics or draw around your hand for a fab high five! If you want to send them to the gym you can or pop it through our letter box when you are on a stroll or you can wait until we are back to hand it in 👍
Happy 12th birthday to my fabulous daughter Sadie!
We would like to throw her a virtual party due to having to cancel all her celebrations 😢
You are all invited! 🤸♀️🎉😁
I would like to collect videos or pictures wishing her a happy birthday to show her later so if you would like to join in she would absolutely love it! Feel free to be upsidedown, sideways or anything you would have fun doing. I can't wait to see them! Much love and thanks gymnasts Coach Kelly xx ... See moreSee less

I’m sure you know we will be back & the girls would love to join in with online lessons.
Keep smiling Kelly, we are all behind you xx
Absolutely gutted but we will be back when you reopen. Keep yourself and your family safe. ❤️❤️
Just to update you all on the status of the gym during the current Covid-19 outbreak.
We are open as normal to all classes.
Gymnasts will be asked to wash their hands at the start and end of each class
We will be doing gymnastics throw and catch high fives 😁
Our make up policy for classes will continue as normal so if you or your gymnast has a cough or fever and has to miss any classes they can be made up at anytime in the future. We have no time limit on make up sessions and will add extra sessions to help this once everything settles back down so your gymnast doesn't miss out on their learning.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you posted on any changes.
If you have any questions please feel free to message or see us at the gym.
