Rhythmic Gymnastics

Each year the Rhythmic Technical Committee produces its handbook, and 2016 is no different.

Our website makes it easier than ever to quickly find the information you need about our competition programme. However, the handbook is the one file that contains all the information brought together into one place. You can download it using the link below and print it as needed. Any revisions throughout the year will be noted on this page with the latest version available to download.

"Lets bring grace to London"
This beautiful and exiting sport has been very popular in the rest of Europe for many years, but in Great Britain it didn't have many followers.

Back in 2007 there was only one rhythmic gymnastics club in the whole of London, however, the popularity of rhythmic has been growing and there are now at least six rhythmic clubs registered and taking part in London Gymnastics competitions. More rhythmic clubs means more rhythmic gymnasts, and obviously the greater the possibility of success. Last November, Edmonton Leisure Centre held the first competition organised in London for the last 18 years. It brought together 38 gymnasts and it was an enormous success.

I hope 2013 sees our discipline continue to grow.
The Rhythmic Technical Committee is made up of a dedicated team of volunteers who serve on the committee for a period of three years. The Chairman is the only elected position, with the rest of the positions being by appointment of the Chairman.

Rhythmic gymnastics combines ballet, body skills and creative movements with music, while working with ribbons, balls, hoops, ropes and clubs in a choreographed dance-and-tumble routine. There are two different disciplines, individual and groups.

An individual gymnast competes with four different routines, using a different piece of apparatus and music for each of them. Every four years (Olympic cycle) one piece of apparatus gets excluded of the competition program.

Groups are made up of 5 gymnasts (+2 reserves) and they perform 2 routines As for individual gymnasts it will depend on the Olympic cycle which pieces of apparatus they use in their performances.

It has taken a little while to get Rhythmic Gymnastics up and running in London, but we are pleased to now offer a number of competitions. We would welcome your interest to help grow this discipline within London.
