Over 95% of our new members come by recommendation almost certainly due to our philosophy, that gymnasts should have fun and enjoy their gymnastics. Hence our gym motto ‘Fun & Happiness Breeds Success.’ Once they start at Charisma they stay.
Charisma Gymnastics club is a well-established youthful, professional and energetic club. We hold regular training sessions each Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Dulwich College Sports Club and on Saturdays at our new venue at Dulwich Prep London.
We can proudly claim that we are the only children’s gymnastics club in Southwark that offers such a high and consistent standard of coaching, whatever the ability of the child participating.
Our philosophy is to recognise that every child is important to the club and to the sport. Our coaches are experienced qualified professionals, who seek to encourage each child to enjoy gymnastics and to reach their own full potential within the sport, but most of all to have fun.
Senior coach Gina Thompson has won coach of the year for London Gymnastics and is also a former British National Squad member – and she oversees all the groups, at all levels of performance, from beginners to the elite classes.
The club competes regularly and with success at local, regional and national level and has had gymnasts competing in the British Championships. Hence receiving Club of the Year in Sep 2011.
