We’re looking forward to an exciting display of trampolining over the weekend.

Born from our desire to fly, trampoline gymnastics is widely recognised as a training tool for many other gymnastic disciplines and sports such as diving and freestyle skiing.

We have a great track record of trampolining in the county.

We can boast that NTGA coach Tracy Whittaker-Smith is Great Britain’s Olympic coach for trampoline.

Tracy was delighted to accept the opportunity to work with Kat Driscoll, based at Apollo Trampoline Club, Tyne and Wear.

NTGA was in the spotlight again last month when their Air Gravity team wowed the audience and soared their way to become runners-up in the ITV series Let’s Get Gold!

The Japanese Trampoline Team also chose our county as its base for final preparations before they took up residence in the Olympic Village.

NTGA holds club sessions in Corby and Northampton. If you are looking for a sport to take you to new heights then find out more about the club here, call 01604 645120 or email info@ntga.co.uk.
