HGC Statement
Dear Members

Recent allegations about HGC

I am sure that you will have heard about or have seen on social media, a number of allegations that have been made about HGC by three former members of the Club.

I am heart broken that such allegations as these have been made. The Club entirely refutes them. We take pride in the fact that we have for many years introduced thousands of young people to gymnastics and have been privileged to share in their journey through the sport. We value the long lasting relationships that we have with our gymnasts and their families and never lose sight of the fact that whilst our sport demands long hours of hard work and commitment from all those involved, it is in the end about the enduring friendships and enjoyment of our sport that matters most to our members. We never forget the commitment that parents and very often siblings of our gymnasts make, as well as the gymnasts themselves and in return we put their wellbeing as our priority, whether they be elite gymnasts or one of the hundreds of children who come along for sessions once a week.

It is therefore important that when allegations such as these are made that they are fully and properly investigated. That is essential not just to our sport but also to the staff, members and families of HGC and to the complainants themselves. For that reason our Chairman has today written to British Gymnastics to invite our governing body to extend the Terms of Reference of Jane Mulcahy QC, the leading sports lawyer appointed by British Gymnastics, to undertake a review of recent complaints to include those made against HGC so that there can be a full and independent assessment of the allegations that have been made. We will of course assist with an independent review in every way that we can.

I and my staff have been greatly heartened by the many messages of support and positive recollections by both current and former members of their time with us. These have meant a great deal to us – thank you.

Yours Sincerely

HGC Management
Reopening Plan
Dear Members

Following government guidelines and permission for indoor gyms to reopen, we are pleased to announce our forthcoming plan.

We will open in two phases; on Saturday 25th July we will open for Squad classes, followed one week later with our General classes programme on Saturday August 1st. Please see below two timetables; one for Saturday 25th July and a second that will operate from Saturday 1st August. The timetable is only for the month of August, the September schedule will be reviewed inline with Government guidelines and be released in the coming weeks.

Due to the restrictions in place for COVID-19 we’ll be making a number of changes, please see the following information that will be put in place;

  • The gym has been carefully cleaned and sanitised and will continue to be until further notice.
  • Increased hygiene processes including hand washing and hand wipes during training.
  • No entry if you have had any symptoms in the past 14 days.
  • Everyone within the building are to wear face masks, coaches will wear these throughout the lesson.
  • Arrival and departure times will be staggered.
  • Entry via the front door and studio door, exit via fire exits.
  • Indoor waiting areas will be closed until further notice.
  • Parents are required to wait outside or within their car where possible.
  • Social distancing of 1 metre plus will be carefully observed with floor stickers and equipment in place as a reminder.
  • Maximum numbers in the gym will be half of the normal class size, approximately 30m² metres per gymnast.
  • Daily monitoring of Public Health England and Government guidelines for additional procedures that may arise over time.

General classes

We will offer two class time options for each class, except some in Gym 2 where there is more space. The first will be approximately the normal day and time. The second will be during the day. Each of these classes will have space for half the normal gymnasts and will be filled on a first come first served basis. Please email Katie on ObscureMyEmail from Monday 20th July tor reserve your space or for payments or queries. Most gymnasts will have a credit from April and one week of March, therefore likely to be no class to pay for the August period.

Squad classes

Squad classes have been reduced by one day, and at a reduced session length. Most sessions will be 2.5 hours. Please see the timetable for clarification. Head coaches will clarify any questions you may have. As all gymnasts have a different schedule than their regular hours, we have decided it would be fair for all if we charged each group ONLY for the hours they train, not an average for all. Therefore using our sliding scale fee structure each group will pay for the exact hours for 5 weeks training, plus 3 weeks of online training in July. Payments by BACS or cash or card at reception. Please include the gymnasts name in the information box if you pay by BACS.

Other classes

Our Playgym sessions, Parties, Holiday Club and Adult Gym classes are cancelled until further notice. Club assessment joining sessions will recommence from September, please check our website regularly for any further updates.


We're excited for our long-awaited return to gymnastics and look forward to welcoming you all back!

HGC Management
The timetables are subject to change at short notice, please regularly check back here for any changes (version 7.0).
