© Carousel School of Gymnastics
Originally known as Castlepoint Gymnastics Club the Carousel School of Gymnastics in its current form was founded in 1983 when the club purchased it's current building a fully equipped gymnastics facility at Russell Gardens in Wickford, Essex. Before then the club hired facilities at the local sports centre, however the Morgan family and the committee took the courageous decision that if the club was to flourish it needed a permanent facility which at the time was the only one in Essex. The Club was founded as a charity in 1990.
Wickford is close to Basildon and Southend on Sea with good links to the M25. We are also GymMark and Club SX accredited.
There is a membership of around 200 children, mainly girls and a range of classes are run from Gym Tots, Adults, through to Competitive Squads. The club regularly has representation at National Finals and National, Regional and County Squads. The schools aim is to encourage participation in the sport and help each individual to achieve their full potential at whatever level they can whether club, county, regional, national or international.
