Gymnastics and Movement for People with Disabilities (GMPD)


GymWorld Nic W

Gymnastics for people with disabilities is an adaptation of mainstream gymnastics covering all disciplines and can be recreational or lead to competitive opportunities.

British Gymnastics have been developing a programme for disabled gymnasts starting with motor activities for those with more severe mobility problems, leading on to a foundation programme for more able gymnasts.

The disability groups can be split into four major categories as follows:

  • Learning, 
  • Physical,
  • Hearing and
  • Visual Impairments.

Currently a motor activities programme is being developed which will provide a framework through which even the most profoundly disabled gymnast can participate.

A competitive programme has been established in Men's Artistic, Women's Artistic, Trampoline Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Acrobatic Gymnastics and Aerobic Gymnastics.
