New gymnastics room opens at Active Ken Ward

Published: 30th October 2018

Gymnastics room at Active Ken WardThe new upstairs gymnastics room at Active Ken Ward is now open. Equipped with a brand new air track, catcher junior high bar, vaulting blocks and much more, the room is perfect for under 8’s kids gymnastics sessions. The air track is also available for older children to enjoy.

The refurbishment of Active Ken Ward’s old boxing gym took place following kids gymnastics classes, in the downstairs rooms at the centre, reaching peak capacity. The new room has enabled the centre to put on an extra 21 gymnastics lessons, for a variety of ages ranging from 2-8 years allowing for childrens & toddler gymnastics classes.

Children who attend the new sessions will be able to achieve British Gymnastics badges, ranging from fundamentals, to pre-school ABC’s and all the way through the proficiency badges. After achieving all of their proficiency badges, or if they reach 9 years of age, children will be transferred on to a different session based in the main downstairs gymnastics hall.

In the downstairs sessions, children can continue their gymnastics experience by moving onto bronze, silver and gold badges then eventually move onto a competition group, where they can compete outside of the club in UK gymnastics competitions, against other clubs.

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.


10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.


The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
