High flyers from Okehampton Trampoline Club

Okehampton Trampoline Club came away with four medals from the Griffin Trampoline competition in Street on Sunday 13th November.

It was a busy competition with a friendly atmosphere. The trampolines were top level 6x4s and 4x4s, so the children did well to adjust to the bouncier trampolines with only three or four practice warm ups.

In her first competition, Bethan Honey won the gold medal in the U11 Award 6 class, with Alice Smith taking silver. Elise Boucher gave two steady performances in the U9 Award 6 to come 7th.

Sophie Wyer and Cerys Eyre both did well in the CDG1 11+ and U11 classes, coming 3rd and 4th respectively. Bethany Watts performed two good routines in the CDG2 grade to come 4th, with an unlucky extra skill at the end of her second routine costing her a medal.

Angus Bond secured the gold medal in the NDP4 class, with two excellent performances.

The club trains on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at Okehampton College. Some of its trampolinists will be competing at regional level competitions in January.

The club currently has 50 people on its waiting list, and is raising money for competition equipment.
