Update 31 July 2020

Although the leisure centre has now re-opened, we are still awaiting a date from them as to when we can resume classes. In the meantime, we are holding outdoor classes for elite and advanced gymnasts and have started to invite intermediate gymnasts too. Class size is still limited to six gymnasts but we now have several coaches available. If you are interested, please email.


Update 8 July 2020

While we are eagerly awaiting the re-opening of Thornbury Leisure Centre and the gradual return to our classes, we are fine tuning our plans with the help of British Gymnastics guidelines to deliver coaching in a safe, fun and positive way. If you have any concerns or ideas, please get in touch.

Outdoor Classes

We should be able to offer some outdoor classes (limited to 6 gymnasts per session) from next week. Please contact us if you are interested.

New Activities (from 8 July)

We have uploaded a few pictures to colour in, and a word search. You can find these in the forms section of the website. 

If you are on badges 8 to 4, we may be able to provide you with information with which to practice at home. Assessment can be made remotely through zoom, or during an outside class. Please contact us if you are interested.

Lockdown Activities

Zoom classes are now up and running for intermediates and above. If you haven’t already contacted us to take part, please do so.

Have you found our new Facebook page, or our instagram account?

As you know, we have already posted some activity sheets in the forms section of our website. We have something for each group from beginners to elite. 

Our coaches have been working toward setting regular challenges for you. Please see the Challenges page for more information.

Please check the website regularly for new information.

Welcome to Kestrel Gymnastics Club

Kestrel Gym Club is a friendly, family run club that offers school age children and adults, of all abilities, the opportunity to learn acrobatic and tumbling gymnastic skills in a positive and supportive environment. All children are encouraged to do their best irrespective of their ability.

“Our emphasis is on providing a fun, friendly and safe environment for learning and improving gymnastic skills.”


I am sad to announce that due to the closure of Thornbury Leisure centre on Friday 20th March, we have had to suspend all classes from now onwards.

Please keep checking this website for new information:

Online classes via zoom to commence soon.

We have already posted some worksheets for your gymnast to use in order to practice at home, maintaining their flexibility and strength. – There are downloadable activity sheets for beginners, improvers, intermediate, advanced and elite in the forms section of this website.

You can check our new ‘Challenges‘ page for ideas of things to try at home.

We will let you know as soon as we can when classes will resume.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
