Success at Windsor school gymnastics competition

More than 250 children took to the floor to show off their gymnastic skills at a Windsor School competition last Tuesday.

The Key Steps Gymnastics competition, which was held at Trevelyan Middle School, has been running for eight years and aims to increase youth participation in gymnastics.

The morning session saw 80 children from five schools across the Royal Borough compete in the floor, body management and vault sections.

A further 185 pupils from schools including Dedworth Middle, Trevelyan Middle, Homer First and Brigidine School competed in the Key Stage Two afternoon session.

Joseph Pegg, organiser of this year’s event, said: “It’s an event where children that don’t normally get picked for mainstream sports can attend.

“The idea is these children get engaged by gymnastics and can then go on to get involved in club gymnastics.”

Winners from each age group will go on to represent Windsor at the Berkshire School Games.
