We have raised £35,000 for new equipment over the last three years for trampolining, DMT and tumbling. Our funders include Okehampton United Charities, Sport England, the Rotary Club of Okehampton, the Inner Wheel of Okehampton and Dunheved Lodge.
Our trampolinists train in Parklands Leisure Centre sports hall which has a high ceiling. We have four competition trampolines, including two Eurotramp Ultimates (Olympic standard), a performance 4×4 trampoline and a 6×4 trampoline, in addition to other trampolines. We also have a trampoline rig and inflatable pit for safety in teaching advanced somersaults.
Double Mini Trampoline (DMT)
We have two DMTs, including a Eurotramp DMT, an inflatable pit for learning doubles, and we often use other gymnastics equipment during our DMT sessions, including our inflatable tumble track.
Tumbling, General Gymnastics and Free-G
Our gymnasts train on our sprung tumble track, 15m inflatable air track, trampolines, DMTs, inflatable pit, competition beam, bars, vault, ropes and wall bars, amongst other equipment.
