The Telford Twisters Trampoline Club's 5 values... 'Belong, Respect, Inspire, Succeed, Enjoy' sum up everything that this family-friendly club stands for.
Situated at Hadley Learning Community in Hadley, Telford Twisters is a club dedicated to providing competitive and recreational trampolining to people of all ages and abilities throughout the Telford area. Built upon a history of excellence, the club has always been true to its community-based focus; ensuring that access to the club's facilities and coaching are available to all, regardless of excessive social or financial constraints.
The boundless energy of its ever growing number of volunteer coaching staff, 3 of whom are qualified to coach people with disabilities, ensure that the club continues to have a great spirit of fun in a safe environment, whilst coaching performers up to regional and national standard. Being a 'GymMark' accredited club effectively ensures that all pastoral and safety governance is in place for children and helped secure a £10,000 grant from Sport England to purchase 2 international standard trampolines.
This year the club finished runners-up in the Telford and Wrekin Active Lifestyles Awards for 'Community Club of the Year' and were short-listed for the equivalent British Gymnastics award. They have also been short-listed for the Energize Shropshire Awards, again in the category of 'Community Club of the Year'.
Trampolining is a low impact, low stress workout for the body. 10 - 20 minutes trampolining is equal to approximately half an hour of jogging! Because the trampoline bed absorbs some of the shock of impact, there is no strain on the joints. A repeated low impact exercise builds and strengthens the bones and muscles which results in toning, better balance, co-ordination and good posture.
Trampolining is a great investment in your young and adolescent children. They may think they're just having fun jumping on the trampoline, but you know that their body and mind are getting a great workout. A growing number of young adult performers develop their management, communication and social skills by taking on roles and responsibilities within the club and becoming mentors for the younger gymnasts.
