8th Brentwood Open
Following a break in competition through the summer, local Brentwood Trampoline Club hosted its 8th Annual Open competition last weekend welcoming over 200 competitors from 14 clubs around the south-east. Such open competitions give regional competitors an opportunity to compete in the same competition (although not against), leading national competitors. On this occasion the clubs' own grade 1 performers, together with others, put on a spectacular show in the middle of the day and contributed to a gratifying tally of trophies and medals won by the club. In all, of its 30 competitors on the day, no less than 19 of the club's performers received either an individual trophy or team medal, many improving on personal best scores en-route, whilst a further 7 also achieved personal best scores showing their continued improvement.
One of the club's coaches, Graham Parker, commented after the competition "I thought our members performed well today, particularly on a technical level, although we must not rest on our laurels. Our objective must be to continue to set high standards and to see that rewarded with even more success in future."
Brentwood Trampoline Club trains at Brentwood School Sports Centre four nights a week as well as many weekend sessions (£5 pay and bounce). For details call 01277 220722, pop in & see them in action some time (and possibly have a bounce) or maybe just have a look at the club's web site at www.brentwoodtc.org which contains full details of sessions, results and information about many other facets of trampolining.
