Tumbling is a truly breath-taking type of gymnastics. It’s all about somersaults, flips and twists – and linking them together, one right after the other. If you’ve already got a bit of gymnastics experience, it’s easy to get started with tumbling (not to mention a whole lot of fun).
If you already love doing somersaults or cartwheels, you’ll find tumbling really easy to get into – whatever age you are. .
You’ll start by learning how it feels to perform simple tricks on a sprung runway. Then, as your technique and confidence grows, you’ll learn to perform amazing sequences of flips and twists. If you get a kick out of competing, there are contests for every age group from child to adult. Of course, if you want to tumble just for fun, go for it!
