Douglas Gymnastics Club was founded in 1978, and from a modest beginning we have seen thousands of children go through the doors of the sports hall we rented at Douglas Community School.

Our new gym at almost 12,000 sq feet is twice the size of our previous home. We now have over 950 members training with us every week, which is more than three times that of a few years ago.

It has been a massive success story for us, and to mark this achievement and in conjunction with a Grand Opening we are holding weekend of fun & celebration for all our gymnasts – Friday 16
