World Gym for Life 2021 is coming! Providing an incredible opportunity to take part in one of the largest gymnastics events in the world, here is everything you need to know…

What is it?
The World Gym for Life Challenge will showcase festival-style performances from some of the best gymnastics display teams from all over the world.

The event will see fun, creative displays from children and adults of all abilities, as they compete for gold, silver or bronze recognition. All teams awarded gold will be invited to perform at the prestigious gala at the end of the week, with the chance of winning the Bruno Grandi Trophy and be crowned the overall winners.

When it is?
The World Gym for Life Challenge will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from the 13th-17th July (official travel dates +/- 1 day). At the last event in Vestfold, Norway, over 2,000 people took part, with an estimated 2,500 set to take to the stage in Lisbon.

Who is it open to?
It’s open to all ages and abilities from any gymnastics discipline, meaning anyone can get involved! It’s a great event to be part of. 

Each group should have a minimum of two active gymnasts, but there is no maximum number, meaning your group can be as big or as small as you like. Groups choose to participate in one of four categories, depending on the type of performance and size of the group.

When do entries open?
