Banchory Gymnastics Club aims to provide the opportunity for the children of Banchory and the surrounding area, to enjoy taking part in gymnastics at both recreational and competitive level.

How to join our club...

If you have a child that is over the age of 4 years and under the age of 11 years and would like them to join our club, please enter their details on the Join Waiting List page and our co-ordinator will be in touch as soon as a place becomes available.  

Please note that it is the policy of Banchory Gymnastics Club that;
  • only children over the age of 4 can join the waiting list
  • children must be aged 5 years or over to be offered a place
  • once children reach the age of 12 they will be removed from our waiting list
While we will endeavour to fill available places from the top of the waiting list, sometimes this will not be possible.  If a place becomes available that would be unsuitable for the age of the child at the top of the waiting list, we would fill this place with a the child of the correct age who is nearest the top.  This has been decided in order to give the best coaching we can to our gymnasts both new and existing.

If you are an established gymnast and would like to join our competitive team, please contact our head coach, Premala Fawcett, on our Contact Us page for a trial.

Message from our Chairperson


We are an enthusiastic club based in Banchory and train primarily in the Banchory Sports Centre. The club caters for both recreational and competitive gymnasts thanks to our dedicated Coaching team and willing band of volunteer parent helpers.

Our classes are incredibly popular and unfortunately there is a sizeable waiting list  – currently approximately 2½ years. However do not let this discourage you from putting your childs name on the list. The list is under constant review and as soon as a space becomes available it will be offered to the child at the top of the list. 

You can keep up with the latest news from the club on our Facebook page here

Trials are also held to help identify children from the waiting list with the potential to join our competitive gymnasts.

The gymnasts take part in a variety of 2 piece and 4 piece competitions both in Aberdeenshire and further afield so there is always a goal for the children to be aiming for.

Gymnastics is an excellent means to encourage a healthy lifestyle, develop self-discipline and a desire to be all that you can be! Banchory Gymnastics Club provides a friendly, safe environment with professional coaches to help your children learn and is inclusive for everyone – regardless of ability. 

If any parent is interested in training to become a coach to help expand the club then please contact us.

Rest assured if your child is on the waiting list we will be in contact as soon as a space becomes available.


Kind Regards 

Graham Paterson 

Chairman Banchory Gymnastics Club
