Gymnastics lessons in Tameside

Gymnastics makes a great spectator sport, but it makes an even better sport to participate in. Here at Active Tameside we have a range of classes – from pre-school to adult – to make sure everyone gets to enjoy the excitement and physical benefits of gymnastics.

Active Tameside provides great gymnastics facilities; our sessions take place at Active Ken Ward in Hattersley. Our facility at Ken Ward has a fantastic range of equipment, including a large sprung floor, sprung tumble track, foam pit, beams, bars, vaulting stations and a great range of hand equipment.

We offer a varied range of gymnastics lessons throughout the week. You can find out more about each of our sessions below.

Mini Tumblers 2-4 years

Our Mini Tumbler sessions are for pre-school children aged between 2-4 years old. They are structured, circuit-based sessions utilising all of the gymnastics equipment. The sessions run over 50 weeks of the year and our coaches choose a different theme each week to ensure interest and engagement.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing, our coaches are currently instructing the sessions from a two-meter distance, and for the time being are unable to assist hands-on with the children. Our coaches will give clear instructions on how to support your child, and videos and images will be available to show you the correct and safe techniques for supporting your child.

Once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, our coaches will be able to assist in every way possible. The coaches are also on a strict cleaning regime, so equipment is cleaned before, during and after the sessions.

Sessions are available at Active Ken Ward. Pre-booking is essential and places are limited, tel: 0161 366 5545 or email:

Juniors 5+ years

British Gymnastics qualified coaches lead groups of up to 10 gymnasts through the sessions learning skills on our great range of equipment. Working through the British Gymnastics Proficiency Badges gymnasts will be rewarded for their time and effort regularly gaining their next level. These sessions are great for children new to gymnastics and those who have come through our sessions previously. Our coaches tailor the sessions to make sure each child is always learning.

We have both Core (for children aged 5-11 years) and Advanced (11+ years) sessions to make sure our gymnasts feel comfortable in their environment but also feel challenged to keep learning.

Sessions are available at Active Ken Ward and pre-booking is essential, tel: 0161 366 5545 or email:

Tameside School of Gymnastics

Tameside School of Gymnastics are a private Gymnastics club who use our facilities at Active Ken Ward. Tameside School of Gymnastics specialise in women’s artistic gymnastics and are an invitation-only club.

Working along Tameside School of Gymnastics we hold trials for our gymnasts to try out for the places held for Active Tameside gymnasts. If you’d like to know more about Tameside School of Gymnastics, visit their website here.


You’re never too old to learn (or re-learn) something new. Gymnastics is a great sport for developing strength and flexibility – and you could even learn some impressive skills too! The sessions have a fun and relaxed atmosphere and you’re even given the option work towards some of the British Gymnastics Proficiency awards. So if you’re aged 16+ (please note that those under 18 will need parent/guardian permission) and want a new challenge, come and try gymnastics.

Sessions are available at Active Ken Ward, tel: 0161 366 5545 or email:
