Do you remember when...?

This is a video all gymnasts should watch, found on you tube it quite simply sums up the sport! If your a gymnast and it doesn't bring a lump to your throat, you really are a hard cookie!

Jade's 'French' Connection!!!

Esprit's Jade Faulkner is off to Corbeil in France from 5-9 May to compete in the city's Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup event.

It's great opportunity for GB team member Jade, who has traveled with Esprit's head coach Deb Hows and fellow GB team member Frankie Jones.

Both of them will be competing against the worlds best rhythmic gymnasts, working extremely hard, gaining valuable experience for the future and hopefully having a great time.

Everyone at Esprit wishes them all the best for the competition, Go Jade!

Scottish triumph for Display Team!

It was off to Glasgow over the Bank Holiday weekend for Esprit's impressive Display Team. Starting on Friday with a ten hour coach journey, the girls made the long trip to perform in the Scottish GymFest.

Held at the Magnum Centre Irvine it is the current home to Gymfest and each year approximately 1500 gymnasts, 200 coaches, 50 volunteers and 4000 spectators literally invade the Magnum Centre over the first bank holiday in May, to take part in what has become the UK’s premier gymnastics display festival. The festival is getting bigger and better each year and Esprit always receive a warm welcome from the appreciative crowd.

This year however, coach Cherie said it was the best ever and the gymnasts performance heralded a standing ovation from the vast crowd of spectators.

The movie hasn't been loaded yet, so here's a taste of what the girls had to offer at the recent Liverpool Ministrada. The Scottish video will be loaded here as soon as it's ready.
