The 2018 Trampoline, Tumbling & DMT World Championships will take place in St Petersburg, Russia from the 7th – 10th November and we are today delighted to announce the official British team.

The senior men’s trampoline team will be current British men’s champion Luke Strong (Liverpool) and Rio Olympian Nathan Bailey (OLGA).
British champion Rachel Davies (Durham) leads the senior women’s tumbling team and will be joined by Megan Kealey (Milton Keynes) and Shanice Davidson (Durham) who joined Rachel on the podium at the British Championships, finishing in second and third respectively.
